The digitalization of society and critical infrastructure creates an increasing need for security and safety against unauthorized access. The continuous growth of the security solutions market opens up interesting perspectives for investors.
As opportunities and growth become connected and integrated, so do risks. An incident that at one time would have engendered costs at a local level now reverberates on a global scale.
New vulnerabilities arise in cyberspace, and critical infrastructure needs to be kept safe – all of which increases the demand for security and drives innovation.
Contemporary methods of protecting assets and mitigating consequences are essential, and the diverse range of companies that are able to supply such security services are poised for growth and profits.
The security and safety space is evolving fast. Providers with an acute awareness of the international scope and technological dimensions of security today are redefining the industry and growing their market share. With the security and safety sector offering significant structural growth potential that is not reflected in current valuations, the perspectives for investors are impressive. At the same time, the market is still relatively exclusive, since the complexity and rapid developments require an intimate knowledge of the field.
Market growth is bolstered by key long-term drivers such as technology innovations, the ongoing digitalization of society, growing concerns about our own health and environment, more stringent regulation, and an increased emphasis on personal security in the wake of population growth and migration.
