BSRIA study on Global Overview Analysis of Fire & Security shows robust growthAugust 2016

The recently published BSRIA market intelligence study on the Global Overview Analysis of Fire and Security (GOA F&S) shows that the global Fire Detection and Electronic Security Systems market continues to grow robustly – for fire at almost five per cent per annum and for security – it is forecast to grow between two and a half and three per cent per annum. Both of these are for the UK. Demand in the fire market continues to favour the sale of multi-sensor detectors in the pursuit of reducing false alarms.

Terrorism has become a stronger driver of the security systems market and led to wider acceptance of surveillance, however CCTV cameras have experienced major price erosion. The intruder alarm market too focuses on reducing false alarms. Integration is up: combining access control with HVAC. Lighting solutions and smart phones are starting to appear as a human-centric security solution. Cloud-based, security-as-a-service offerings are also developing.
