Global Critical Infrastructure Protection Market for Access Control to exceed £4.79bn (USD68bn) by 2020


Integrated Access Control System

The global critical infrastructure protection market by access control systems is expected to exceed USD 68 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of close to 15%, the ‘Global Critical Infrastructure Protection Market 2016-2020’ market study released by Technavio has been able to suggest.

Access control systems grant employees access to protected areas only when their identity matches the information stored in the organization’s database. The increase in revenue in this segment is the direct result of increased adoption of access control systems in order to prevent unauthorized access to data and facilities.

With advances in technology, a number of critical infrastructures are adopting access control systems integrated with biometric technologies such as fingerprint and iris recognition. Contactless smartcards that use radio frequency technology for communication between a contactless smartcard and the card reader are also being used by a number of critical infrastructures for securing access to premises.

According to Amrita Choudhury, a lead analyst at Technavio for IT security, “The growth rate of this segment will increase with the growing adoption of advanced technologies such as multifactor authentication and multimodal biometrics. For instance, US-based Entrust provides multifactor authentication to critical infrastructures for controlling physical and logical access.”
