North America perimeter security market size, by system, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

In the recent years the world has witnessed a tremendous rise in illegal activities, breaches of security systems, planned crimes, and terrorism activities and this has led to increased awareness among citizens as well as industries and governments. As a result, various security systems are deployed at different locations in an attempt to strengthen security. However, the increasing cost of implementing these systems is estimated to hinder the growth of the market. Moreover, improving the reliability of the systems is another challenge for all manufacturers.

System Insights

Based on systems, the global market has been further categorized into access control systems, alarms & notification systems, intrusion detection systems, video surveillance systems, barrier systems, and others. The video surveillance systems segment dominated the industry and accounted for the highest share of more than 46.2% of the global revenue in 2022. Video surveillance systems are estimated to emerge as the fastest-growing type segment in the market owing to the increasing focus on the continuous capturing of images and complete safety.

The segment mainly comprises video cameras, CCTV cameras, video analytics, and smart video devices that can be linked to more than one device. The ease of installation of video surveillance systems and their myriad applications are resulting in their increased adoption across the globe. Video surveillance solutions deter revenue loss from stolen merchandise, vandalism, and destruction of valuable information among others. The video surveillance systems include alarm systems and wireless home security systems that notify law enforcement agencies at the time of trouble.

Perimeter security systems find extensive applications in all types of prisons carrying a high probability of criminals and prisoners escaping from the vicinity. These systems play a critical role in ensuring that government and private safety locks are operational, and a high level of vigilance is maintained around the area. Apart from this, illegal activities such as cross-border smuggling of goods, human trafficking, and exchange of armaments without official documents are some of the other cases where it is crucial to deploy stringent security measures. 

Service Insights

System integration and consulting services are gaining traction among security system providers and the segment accounted for revenue share of more than 50.6% in 2022. The integration of various security systems provides the controller with more accurate information and enhanced decision-making power. System integration and consulting services help businesses with a streamlined & optimal functional workflow, access to real-time data, and effective performance of business operations. The adoption of cutting-edge technologies, such as IP-based security cameras for remote access, motion sensors, and wireless technology, is driving the industry forward.

The risk assessment & analysis services are estimated to grow at a very fast pace over the forecast period. Managed security services are increasingly used by large organizations as they find it easier to outsource the entire security system, thereby identifying loopholes in the security of crucial information and preventing intruders form accessing their company premises.

End-use Insights

The military and defense segment is leading the market with more than 25.7% of revenue share in 2022. The increasing population and growing shopping and outing trends, along with the presence of large entertainment hubs at various locations, have led to the emergence of a vast application for perimeter security systems. Additionally, the transportation segment is expected to grow at a faster pace owing to its immense applications in railways, freight cars and cargo vehicles to protect the valuable assets on board.

Global perimeter security market share, by end-use, 2022 (%)

Government sites and offices are increasingly adopting perimeter security systems and this segment is expected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period. These systems are widely used to detect any intrusion to the restrained facility. Also, a perimeter security system ensures the safety of privately owned land or an industrial facility. The rising number of smart cities in Europe and the U.S. has increased the need for the security of infrastructure and devices. For this, governments are collaborating with experts to achieve the desired level of security. For instance, the German government invested around EUR 350 million in 32 projects selected from the 2020 Smart City Model Projects Program. The German government is also assisting municipalities by supporting the creation of integrated smart city programs and their execution, focusing on cross-sectoral efforts that other municipalities can adapt.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market with the revenue share of more than 31.0% in 2022. This leading share is attributable to the presence of technology hubs in the U.S. and the continuous research and development in the field have resulted in. Furthermore, the increased use of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the region is expected to contribute to the regional growth of the perimeter security market.

Perimeter Security Market Trends by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing region over the next six years. The region is anticipated to witness growth owing to the developing infrastructure and stringent government measures towards the safety of nations. Military and defense, transportation, key infrastructures, nuclear facilities, chemical industries, oil and gas, as well as other industries are also major contributors to the expansion of the perimeter security industry. The increasing incidences of crime such as personal crime and data theft have led to the need for perimeter security systems in the Asia Pacific region; thereby escalating the perimeter security market growth over the forecast period.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Key players are focusing on increasing their customer base to gain a competitive edge in the market and these players are adopting various strategic initiatives such as mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, integrating with other firms for particular technologies and new product development.
