Frost & Sullivan: Growing Transnational Threats to Drive Demand for Advanced Border and Maritime Security Solutions

3 pages
Frost & Sullivan: Growing Transnational Threats to Drive Demand for Advanced Border and Maritime Security Solutions PR Newswire LONDON, Sept. 27, 2012 - Investments in advanced technologies and end-to-end solutions will promote better situational awareness at borders and coastal areas LONDON, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Land and maritime borders continue to face a range of threats like criminal, terrorist and piracy activity, therefore increased protection for these areas is a priority for governments around the world. Investment in technologies that will allow authorities to more effectively counter and react to threats will drive opportunity in the market. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.defence.frost.com), Global Border and Maritime Security Market Assessment, finds that expenditure will be around $29.35 billion in 2012 and estimates this to increase to $52.67 billion by 2021. "Coastal and border areas are the first line of defence for government authorities to protect citizens and critical national infrastructure from threats," explains Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Anthony Leather. "Having greater situational awareness along these areas allows more effective response to unusual or suspicious activity. This requirement will drive investment in new intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) technologies." Despite the global economic downturn, investment in border and maritime infrastructure will continue to grow.

PR Newswire LONDON, Sept. 27, 2012
- Investments in advanced technologies and end-to-end solutions will promote better situational awareness at borders and coastal areas LONDON,Sept. 27, 2012/PRNewswire/ -- Land and maritime borders continue to face a range of threats like criminal, terrorist and piracy activity, therefore increased protection for these areas is a priority for governments around the world. Investment in technologies that will allow authorities to more effectively counter and react to threats will drive opportunity in the market. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.defence.frost.com),Global Border and Maritime SecurityMarket Assessment, finds that expenditure will be around$29.35 billionin 2012 and estimates this to increase to$52.67 billionby 2021. "Coastal and border areas are the first line of defence for government authorities to protect citizens and critical national infrastructure from threats," explains Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Anthony Leather. "Having greater situational awareness along these areas allows more effective response to unusual or suspicious activity. This requirement will drive investment in new intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) technologies." Despite the global economic downturn, investment in border and maritime infrastructure will continue to grow. More technologically advanced security equipment available in the market will be procured to bolster situational awareness at borders and coasts. This will be especially true inAsia Pacific (APAC) and theMiddle East. At present, however, much of the existing infrastructure is fragmented, with only a few countries having an end- to-end system approach. Many countries have adopted only certain elements of border and maritime security systems. This leaves blind spots in their situational awareness along coasts and border which can be exploited. Retrofitting newer equipment with older systems becomes more of a challenge. "The fragmented approach to procurement has left countries with gaps in their border and maritime defence," cautions Leather. "Many now have to acquire the latest technologies and face high costs to integrate it with existing equipment." Adoption of an end-to-end solution will be required to provide the greatest situational awareness for border and maritime security agencies. Although this is a large initial investment for many countries, it provides a higher level of security and, in the long run, a better return on investment. "The border and maritime security domain remains vital for the security of the state and, as such, expenditure in this domain will be protected," notes Leather. "Companies who can provide end-to-end solutions will be best placed to win large contracts expected through the forecast period."
