Security Equipment, Access Control and CCTV - UK - December 2015

“Increasing business investment, new build housing construction, and rising crime rates are all leading to market growth. The largest industry sector CCTV will continue to drive market growth as take-up of IP systems gathers pace. Access control is benefiting from demand for innovative multi-functional biometric devices, with manufacturers investing in new technology and strategic partnerships to compete with companies in the technology sector. Demand for alarms is, however, slowing from 2015 as customers demand more integrated and interconnected devices.”
