With the rise of global security concerns, including the increasing incidence of terrorist attacks, governments have increased budget allocation for implementing physical security systems and solutions in order to ensure security of their premises, assets, and people. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the physical security market in the coming years. Among the services, the system integration segment holds the largest share of the physical security market, while the maintenance and support segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
These solutions help enterprises worldwide to maintain user identities and their related access permissions.
