Budgets will Drive Investment in More Efficient Security Technologies

Budget cuts throughout UK government departments have driven the need for efficient security technologies that can bring greater operational efficiencies to security end users. This research service indicates the total UK critical national infrastructure (CNI) security expenditures from 2013 to 2019. In addition, expenditure forecasts are provided for 5 key infrastructure areas including water, energy, mass transport, border and maritime, and C4i first responders security. Analyses of government and cyber security trends are also included. The research is backed by analyses of secondary and in-house sources as well as interviews with key industry participants and end users.

Key Findings

-Despite continued economic uncertainty in the United Kingdom and continued budget cuts throughout government departments responsible for critical national infrastructure (CNI) protection, the market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of % from 2013 to 2019.
-Elevated threat perception and securing UK CNI sites remains the government’s key priorities.
-The market remains very price sensitive, with end users opting for value-for-money solutions.
-The growth of foreign investment in the United Kingdom has increased competition in the market from cheaper foreign alternatives.
-Eighty per cent of the United Kingdom’s critical national infrastructure is run by private companies. Building strong relationships with energy, water, oil and gas, and mass transport operators is vital to accessing large contracts in the UK CNI market.
-The growing security debate in the United Kingdom about the role of industry has not yet affected large government contracts; however, continued scrutiny over the performance of suppliers is expected over the forecast period.

Key Segment Trends:

-Border and Maritime Security: Uncertainty of performance and key industry contracts create an uneasy environment for the UK Border Agency (UKBA).
-Energy: Focus on cyber security solutions and shift in UK power generation and delivery will create multiple opportunities over the next years.
-Mass Transport: Numerous infrastructure development plans across mass transport hubs. Network and communication protection vital for end users.
-Water: Investment required in infrastructure with security not seen as a priority.
-Government: Efficiency requirements and targets driving managed services opportunities.
-C4i First Responders: Shift toward long-term evolution (LTE) and next-generation technologies will provide the greatest opportunities.
-Cyber: Growth in awareness of cyber security with increased spending. Continued uncertainty from both government and industry on the best way to tackle the issue.
