Access control segment to grow in the EMEA region over next year and a half
The access control segment is likely to record some strong growth across the EMEA region from 2014 through 2015 says the latest forecast report from the IHS, drawn up following a thorough evaluation of the rate of movement toward IP and other more advanced security technologies.
For traditional access control, IHS has estimated growth of about 3.1%in 2014, but, when including electronic locks (mechatronic, digital cylinder and electromechanical), IHS estimated a growth of about 7.4% in 2014, a report can reveal.
The organization estimated that infrastructure such as airports, seaports, education and critical sites including oil & gas and energy, are all experiencing very strong growth, so the IHS expects a significant impact on the access control industry in the short to medium term.
Overall, the Middle East and African regions are expected to be great markets for growth over the next 2-3 years. Wireless locks, IP-enabled devices and iris recognition readers will be at the forefront of product requests. Training and educating not only integrators, installers and distributors but also end-users is critical to success.
