The Global Access Control Reader Market size is expected to reach $6.4 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 12.6% CAGR during the forecast period. Access control (AC) is a selective restriction on access to a location or other resources in the areas of physical safety and data safety. Access may indicate consumption, entry, or use. Authorization is referred to as permission to access. Login credentials and locks are two analog access control methods.

The concept of access control relates to the practice of limiting the entry of licensed individuals to a property, a building or a room. A human (guard, bouncer or receptionist), mechanical means such as locks & key or technical means, such as access control systems, such as a mantra can be used to control physical access. Physical key management can also be used in those environments in order to manage and monitor the access to or access to certain small assets by mechanical means.

The major adopter of access control readers is the commercial industry. In these industries, commercial spaces like data centers and enterprises, banks and financial institutions, retail stores and malls, hotels, and entertainment studios are being considered. These locations need access control readers to protect individuals and assets through prevention of unauthorized access. There is a growing demand for access control devices, as they considerably decrease the need for manned security, thereby lowering security expenses. These variables encourage exchange and service organizations, in order to safeguard individuals and assets, to embrace access control readers.
