Physical security is a security service that aims to protect personnel, hardware, software, networks, and data from physical actions and events that could cause severe loss to an organization, enterprise, agency, or institution. These security services include protection from fire, flood, natural disasters, burglary, theft, vandalism, and terrorism. Security personnel, CCTV cameras, locks, safety barriers, access control protocols, and other similar tools are all included in its various layers, which incorporate interdependent systems.
GCC Physical Security Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:
- Emergence of smart interconnected building/home
Recently, the popularity of smart homes/buildings has grown among consumers. A smart home/building is a residence that uses internet-connected devices to enable remote monitoring, access control solutions, and management of appliances & systems, such as smart lighting, smart locks, smart biometrics, and others.
Moreover, smart home devices are efficient and energy-saving, reducing energy bill payments. Smart home devices, due to their innovative features, in-built motion detectors, internet connectivity, and control through smartphones, laptops, and other devices, make the consumer feel safe, comfortable, and secure.
- Rapid growth in the importance of physical biometric solutions across all sectors
Biometric-based physical security devices are increasing across all regions of the globe. The fingerprint, physical access control system, video surveillance system, and facial recognition system are integrated with electronic devices such as laptops, mobiles, and other smart handheld devices. The smart approach also uses these access control door locks, security systems, home automation, IoT, automotive, game consoles, and mobile devices.
With an access control door lock, a person can quickly identify and access the house or organization by enhancing security features. The companies are performing many research activities to incorporate the advanced physical biometric system into the devices for security.
- Rise in strategic partnership and acquisition among organizations for physical and cyber security system
Coordinating and investing in projects is essential for achieving sustained improvements in the physical security market. Due to this, the government and other private organizations are striving through partnerships and acquisitions, thereby accelerating the growth of the industries. This helps to build awareness and profit for the organization, thereby creating scope for a new invention in the industry. Also, the company can invest more in advanced technologies to provide more secure and reliable physical security market services and solutions through partnerships.
Expanding the business could connect more people to the company's products and services. They will be able to convert more clients and boost their sales by expanding the customer base. This helps make awareness, increases the organization's profit, and creates scope for sustainable growth. Furthermore, this allows the company to get recognized in the premium market.
- Rise in cyber security threat and ransomware in physical and cyber security solutions
Due to COVID-19, cybercrime and cybersecurity issues increased by 600% in 2020. Flaws in network security are a weakness that hackers exploit to perform unauthorized actions within a system. According to Purple Sec L.L.C., in 2018, mobile malware variants for mobile have increased by 54% 2018, out of which 98% of mobile malware target Android devices. 25% of businesses are estimated to have been victims of crypto-jacking. Various companies also include the security industry.
- Complexity associated with the integration of various physical security systems
Integrating security systems involves combining logical and physical security applications, such as biometric identity programs and access control, into a single, all-encompassing plan. For instance, if the access control and intrusion alarm systems are linked, the access control system can be programmed to lock down a facility based on the type of alarm sounds when the system determines an intruder. However, one has to buy all the components from the same vendor. If the vendor provides only minimal support, customers could become saddled with a system that does not meet their needs. Also, redesigning and redeploying web- and mobile-based applications can become exhaustive and time-consuming.
