WHY THE SECURITY MARKET NOW
Egis is focused on the $550 billion growing and global market for products and services that protect people, assets, and information. Our subsectors, physical security, identity solutions, and cybersecurity are highly fragmented and have established long-term growth trends above 5%. Intensifying threatscapes, disruptive technologies, declining price points, changing demographics, and increased infrastructure spending offer strong support for continued economic expansion within the Security and Protection industry.
INDUSTRY GROWTH DRIVERS
Intensifying “threatscapes” across the U.S. and abroad, such as terrorism, global criminal networks, cybercrime, natural disasters, street and white-collar crimes put people, assets and information at increasing risk.
Enterprises are rapidly adopting new technologies including cloud computing, Big Data, mobile communications and IoT, accelerating demand and growth for security products and solutions.
Security provides dual benefits of protection and operational efficiency; “secure and smart”.
Security investments are the “last mile” of infrastructure. The construction of bridges, commercial buildings, utilities, and airports are not complete if not secure.
An aging population motivated to stay in their homes is driving demand for in-home monitoring and technology solutions. Increasing cost of labor is creating demand for automated security and protection services.
