Access control segment records significant growth within the security industry

Integrated Access Control System

The access control market segment has recorded a very strong growth in the security industry over the past 10 years, as the need for systems and solutions designed specifically to restrict access to a specific area has become increasingly dire, market research experts have revealed.

Access control has achieved a significant rate of growth over the past two years, and most industry analysts believe that the trend will continue into 2017, with a CAGR of 11.23% to 2021 making sales of $11.56 billion in that year. These levels of growth will be driven by ACaaS, biometric readers and identity management, wireless locking systems and more penetration of IP network systems.

The access control segment has increasingly moved into IP networking and strengthened its relationship with biometrics and identity management. These trends are significant drivers that should maintain the growth momentum that has built up over the last two years.

Furthermore, much in the same way as with most other industry segments, continual product development will represent the key to winning new business and maintain growth, as this environment will become increasingly competitive.
