World demand to rise 7.4% annually through 2016

The global market for private contract security services will increase 7.4 percent annually through 2016 to $244 billion. In general, demand for security services is driven by rising urbanization, the real and perceived risks of crime and terrorism, belief that public safety measures are insufficient, and growth of a middle class with assets to protect and the means to pay for supplementary security measures.

Going forward, the security service market will also be supported by an improved economic environment and building construction activity, notably in developed nations that saw significant slowdowns late in the 2006-2011 period.

Developing areas to post strongest market gains

The strongest market gains will be posted in developing parts of Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East where security markets are relatively underdeveloped. In fact, several national markets, including China, India, Mexico, Russia, and South Africa, are expected to achieve double-digit annual growth through 2016.

In many of these areas, the intensity of security service use (measured against indicators such as GDP and urban population) is relatively low, indicating significant growth potential going forward. Factors such as rapid gains in economic activity, rising personal incomes, foreign investment activity, and the increasing belief that public safety forces are overburdened, corrupt or unable to provide sufficient protection will boost gains. Furthermore, increasing regulation and a trend toward greater professionalism in many of these local security service markets will improve public trust in security service businesses, thereby driving market gains.

US to remain largest national consumer

The US will remain the largest single consumer of private contract security services, accounting for 26 percent of total world demand in 2016. While the US is a relatively mature market for security services, the sheer size of the US means that it will account for more than one-fifth of total global increases between 2011 and 2016, even with a below average growth rate. However, that level will be matched by the combined gains of a few rising markets. For instance, India and China will together account for 13 percent of worldwide gains and Brazil, the world’s second largest single market in 2011, will represent another seven percent of global growth.

Contract guarding to remain largest, alarm monitoring to grow fastest

Contract guarding will continue to be the largest segment of the market, accounting for more than half of total revenues in 2016. This segment benefits from the minimal capital requirements for operation which, along with relatively low labor costs, make it the dominant security service in the developing markets. The alarm monitoring market is expected to see the strongest growth, spurred by rising interest in alarm systems coupled with the improved outlook for building construction.

Study coverage

Details on these and other findings are contained in the upcoming Freedonia industry study, World Security Services, priced at $6400. It presents historical demand data for 2001, 2006 and 2011, plus forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by service type, market, world region and for 27 major countries. The study also considers market environment factors, assesses industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 37 global competitors.
