So, sitting from the comfort of your office or even home, you get to reach out to your target audience seamlessly through your mobile device.

The Security market in India has witnessed a growth at a CAGR of 14%, and is expected to be further fuelled by creation of additional infrastructure like industrial complexes, public infrastructure, residential complexes, etc. This immense growth opportunity has further been fuelled by government initiatives like ‘Smart Cities’ and ‘Make in India’.

Refurbishing of the security strategy and discussion about the cutting-edge technologies is the need of the hour for the country as well as organisations. Proactive policies by the Indian government can allow an ecosystem where businesses can be developed more easily by granting industry status to further catalyse this growth. This will open up a huge market for leading players in the security industry. This is also the age of smart technology and to match the pace of smart cities, the need for smart security and surveillance system is very critical.

The private security industry in India also provides employment to more than 70 lakh people, which is expected to rise manifold as the size of the industry increases. Government policies like making guards in schools and ATMs mandatory and instalment of CCTV cameras at various locations have resulted in accelerating the demand. For example, a back of the envelope calculation shows that there are around 15 lakh education institutions in India and the mandatory 3 security guards on a 24-hour basis only translate into 45 lakh new jobs.

As AI becomes more broadly adopted across industries, it is likely to be more widely incorporated in video surveillance. At the same time, video surveillance solutions will go far beyond functioning as a simple monitoring tool to become an indispensable aid to organisations by providing useful insights that improve business operations. The importance of accessible cloud-based servers that can easily store and analyse the accumulated data, will also increase. Going beyond being an efficient storage repository, sophisticated analytics will use cloud processing to analyse the stored data and provide useful insights.

Vertical markets in the security industry are increasingly requiring more specialised devices and solutions to meet their unique requirements. With the emergence of the 4th industrial revolution, the presence of smart verticals will be more prominent, and video surveillance companies must be ready to provide solutions for smart cities, factories, transportation and retail organisations.

Virtual Conference: Gearing Up for New-Age Security Threats

Indian economy is on the path to touch $5 trillion in GDP and a natural consequence of this progress is visible in the form of growing urbanisation, industrial activity, retail boom and movement of men and material. Increased concerns regarding security of men, money and material has led to the growth of security market at a CAGR of 14%. This growth is fuelled by creation of additional infrastructure like industrial complexes, public infrastructure, residential complexes and the humungous opportunity presented by government initiatives like ‘Smart Cities’ and ‘Make in India’.

Moreover, as AI becomes more broadly adopted across industries, it is likely to be more widely incorporated in video surveillance. Edge-based AI (which filters and processes data locally on a camera), will be more ubiquitous, enabling end-to-end AI technology. With IoT devices becoming ubiquitous, the importance of cybersecurity has never been more important. Today’s cyber-attacks are more intelligent and advanced than ever, so building cyber-resilient security systems is no longer an option, but an imperative.

Smart cities, factories, financial institutions and retailers today require scalable video surveillance solutions which are closely interconnected with other devices and networks, making the importance of cybersecurity paramount. According to IDC, a provider of information technology market intelligence, there will be about 175 zettabytes of data in the world by the year 2025, with much of it stored in the cloud and data centres around the world. At the same time, video surveillance solutions will go far beyond functioning as a simple monitoring tool to become an indispensable aid to organisations by providing useful insights that improve business operations.
