Improved Perimeter Intrusion Detection Lures Customers


Growing risks to critical infrastructure and increased awareness of the reliability and affordability of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) is paving the way for global adoption of these technologies, according to a new report.

Titled “Opportunities in the World Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems Market,” the report by research firm Frost & Sullivan finds that the market earned revenues of more than $230 million in 2009. Revenues are forecast to exceed $338 million by 2016.

Growing demand within developing countries to secure critical infrastructures is expected to lead to the increased adoption worldwide of PIDS via medium- to small-sized commercial applications in the next few years. Rising costs associated with manned guarding services is also fueling PIDS adoption, according to the report.

Although the economic recession and lack of regulations initially subdued the wide-scale spread of PIDS, the market is expected to experience a healthy increase in its revenues from 2013 and beyond.

This boost is anticipated to result from technological breakthroughs and improvements in perimeter detection capabilities, which include design enhancements to reduce false alarms and secure the probability of detection.

End users are increasingly lured by the layered approach of combining multiple sensor technologies; for example, combining fences with buried or free-standing sensors and video. This approach complements the various technologies and helps overcome operational challenges.

“Performance improvements in terms of advanced sensing techniques and growing integration with other sensor technologies and video surveillance are expected to increase awareness and position PIDS as reliable systems,” says Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Archana Rao. “For widespread adoption, vendors will have to sign strategic technology and business partnerships to complement offerings and educate the market as a whole on the need to secure the first line of defense.”
