Inside the Latest Security Market Index Survey Results

When asked about the 2023 ISC West trade show – which took place March 28-31 in Las Vegas, more than one out of four describing the show as “one of the best – if not the best – ever” and more than half calling it an “excellent show,” according to the announcement, while less than 2% of respondents had a negative view of the event. SIA is the premier sponsor of ISC West and ISC East.

In the latest SMI report, which is supported by Wesco, more than one-third of security professionals rated current business conditions as being “excellent,” 43% said they were “good” and 18% said they were “average.”

The SMI measures security industry executives’ current status and future expectations through a select survey of SIA members. The Index’s goal is to provide a macro-view of confidence levels in the security industry every two months while closely examining six specific business measures:

  • Number of employees or hours worked
  • Marketing spending
  • Product production or service output
  • Capital equipment spending
  • R&D spending
  • Product or service sales

Special focuses of SIA’s May/June 2023 SMI include:

  • Predictions on a strong Q3 from the majority of respondents
  • Market analysis on indicators and job growth amid an expanding economy
  • Rave reviews and industry perspectives on ISC West 2023
