Physical Security Market Trends

  • Rising concerns towards resource safety and technological update to boost market growth

The requirement for a strong security environment is expected to be significantly influenced by growing concerns about protecting people, resources, and essential assets from physical threats and specific vulnerabilities.  Additionally, escalating threat incidences have increased the requirement for intensifying maintenance efforts to have a highly guarded physical infrastructure at home and commercial premises.  For instance, Johnson Controls, a pioneer in building security solutions, debuted its autonomous robots and body-worn cameras for its physical security and screening technology in September 2021.

With the help of these innovative technologies, Johnson Controls can provide total building physical security for commercial and residential properties, allowing customers to use their systems for purposes beyond simple access control and video surveillance.  Governments in the world's major regions consistently enhance their physical security systems to combat the escalating risks.  For instance, the body-worn camera for the personal protection of government officials was introduced by Axis Communications, AB, in December 2021.  

Axis Communications, AB is a Swedish firm that offers services to commercial sectors and governments worldwide.  Body-worn cameras offer numerous advantages for liability protection, personal safety, and operational effectiveness.  Therefore, the adoption of such growth strategies in physical security has enhanced the Physical Security market CAGR across the globe in recent years.

Furthermore, Physical Security market revenue is also expected to increase due to innovations and technological advancements in integrated sensors, video, and access systems for IoT-enabled devices.  For instance, Intel Corp. announced in September 2021 that it manages its physical security & virtual device access via a software-based IoT platform.  Using keys or access credentials assures that only authorized employees have direct physical security access to the equipment.

Physical Security Market Segment Insights:

Physical Security Type Insights

The  Physical Security market segmentation based on type, includes system and service. The system segment held the majority share in 2021, contributing to the  Physical Security market revenue. The segment includes physical access control systems (PACS), security camera systems, perimeter intrusion detection and prevention, physical security information management (PSIM), physical identity and access management (PIAM), and fire and life safety.  Axis network cameras, analog cameras, video encoders, displays, and storage solutions are part of a video surveillance system.

Service is the second fastest-growing segment, which accounts for a considerable share of the Physical Security market.  The segment for physical security services has greatly benefited from people's increased knowledge of automated security solutions like door locking, intruder detection, and fire detection systems.

October 2021: In order to provide visibility and intelligence on supply chain disruption, significant events, and public safety incidents that may have an impact on workplaces, locations, employees, clients, and the general public, ZeroFox, the industry leader in external cybersecurity, has introduced a new Physical Security Intelligence solution.
