Card-based access control systems market to grow to $11 billion by 2020

Smart Card-based Access Control systems

The global card-based electronic access control systems market is set to rise to around $11 billion by 2020, creating a global CAGR between 10 and 12 percent, recent research from Future Market Insights has found.

The value for this particular market segment was of around $6 billion back in 2014, the report can suggest.

The report covers two types of access control cards: proximity cards and smart cards and also examines the market by end-user types, which include “government, commercial, industrial, residential and others.

The paper found that commercial and industrial end-user segments are expected to lead the global market by value. Additionally, these segments are expected to show the leading growth rates for coming five years as compared to other end-user segments.

In terms of growth drivers, increasing investment in infrastructure by government [and] by private sectors of major economies, and increasing safety concerns, especially from crime and terrorist activities are driving the market growth, while pricing and relative lack of knowledge on the systems are viewed as the main challenges.
