Security Equipment (Industrial Report) - UK - October 2014
“Manufacturers will need to protect their position from new entrants in the technology sector as the penetration of wireless security systems increases, while product development is expected to continue at a rapid pace.”

This report covers the UK market for security equipment, including the following product areas:
- Intruder alarm systems
- Integrated systems
- Centrally monitored alarms
- Access control
All market and industry statistics up to 2014 are quoted at actual prices for the year, and therefore include manufacturer price increases. Forecasts for 2015 onwards are made at 2014 prices and therefore exclude inflation.
The UK security equipment market is diverse and while the UK and global markets feature a number of large, well-known brands, there are also a multitude of smaller manufacturers. Separate markets also exist for the rental of security equipment and the sale of security equipment.
With such a high level of industry fragmentation it is not possible to review all the companies in a report of this type. This report is not a directory of industry participants, and the following provides a synopsis of some of the operators selected as being representative of a cross sample of types of operator rather than necessarily the largest industry participants.
