Covered in this report

The security equipment market again showed its resilience in 2018. The industry sits in a relatively privileged position, with growth underpinned by strong internal trends in the industry. It is therefore less contingent on the wider economic landscape and continues to overcome Brexit headwinds, which have resulted in slowdowns in many other UK industries. Moving forward, Mintel expects this resilience to continue. Growing demand for connectivity, particularly in the smart home, is set to become a huge asset for the industry over the coming decade, and will open vast avenues for growth for many years to come.
