Electronic Security Megatrends Survey reveals ESA member expectations for 2011-2012
Members of the Electronic Security Association are expecting IP-based security, alternative alarm signal transmission, the control and monitoring of security systems via mobile devices and the integration of security devices on IT networks/backbones to be among the leading growth categories over the next two years, according to ESA’s Electronic Security Megatrends Survey.
The results, announced at the ESA Leadership Summit, show that ESA members averaged a 1.7 percent increase in revenues during 2010, a sign that the industry is experiencing positive growth post-recession.
More than 66 percent of survey respondents expect the use of alternative alarm signal transmission to grow more than 10 percent over the next two years, followed by mobile device control at 49 percent and integration on IT/networks and IP-based security each at 46 percent.
Hosted/remote video monitoring and video surveillance for non-security applications followed at 41 and 34 percent, respectively.
Survey respondents listed video surveillance, electronic access control, fire detection and intrusion detection as the four product categories to see the most average annual growth over the next two years.
The survey also reveals expansion strategies, vertical market involvement, operational investment trends and the top 12 vertical growth markets for integration and monitoring members of ESA.
