Global Security Service Market demand to rise 7.4% annually through2016This study analyzes global markets for private contractual security services. Markets coveredinclude guard and guard patrol services central station alarm monitoring services armored car transport and related cash handling and automated teller machine (ATM) services (jointly termed cash-in-transit/CIT services) private management of public adult correctional facilities private investigations, security consulting, systems integration, and other miscellaneous security servicesExcluded are so-called “proprietary” security services, such as guards, detectives, and off-dutypolice officers on the paid staff of nonsecurity business establishments. Also excluded aresecurity equipment and alarm installation and repair services (i.e., nonrecurring revenues),locksmith activities, data security services, telematics, and security products manufacture anddistribution.Historical data (2001, 2006, and 2011) and forecasts to 2016 and 2021 are provided for revenues(receipts) by type of service and market on a countryby- country and region by-region basis.Detailed market data are valued in current US dollars, including inflation. Historical and forecastsecurity service employment data by country are also provided.Buy a copy of this report @ http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/218222-world-security-services-to-2016.htmlReport Details:Published: January 2013No. of Pages: 566Price: US$6400It should be noted that given the difficulty of predicting the public decision making process andthe frequent changes in public policy based on shifts in governments, revenues for the privatemanagement of correctional facilities have only been forecast for countries which were actuallycontracting out such services at the time of writing in January 2013. Aggregate forecasts for that
segment could therefore understate the size of the market for 2016 and 2021, if additional nationsdecide to experiment with privatization in the interim.National crime rate and employment historical data are provided where available; however,differing definitions of crime and unemployment and varying reporting practices make country-to-country comparisons difficult and render data for certain (primarily developing) countrieshighly suspect. Discrepancies between crime and unemployment rate data presented here andother published figures may reflect differing estimates of a country’s population for a given year.A potential source of statistical discrepancy in the historical series for security service revenuesis the conversion from national currencies to a common currency (the US dollar). Every efforthas been made to adjust compiled data to form a consistent pattern for comparing the variousnational security service markets, including the use of purchasing power parity currencyconversions.Data on security service demand are derived from differing sources and developed fromstatistical relationships. Given that variations are commonplace in international reporting, datapresented in this study are historically consistent but may vary from other sources. Variancesmay occur because of definitional differences, different methods of currency translation, andvarious other factors. Every effort has been made to factor out security service revenues derivedfrom the activities of organized crime syndicates, proprietary and public sector security forces,ancillary activities such as traffic control (e.g., in Japan), and the activities ofproprietary/contract hybrid security vendors.In addition, major global security service vendors are identified and profiled, and the keycompetitive variables are discussed. The entire report is framed within the world private securityindustry’s economic, technological, and market environments; environmental variables affectingsecurity demand patterns are emphasized. Given the nature of the topic, special emphasis isplaced on demographic and socioeconomic factors influencing the incidence of crime and otherpotential security risks, and thus the demand for security services. World security service marketshare data presented in the “Industry Structure” section are estimated based on consultation withmultiple sources. In addition, tabular details may not add to totals due to rounding. Unlessotherwise noted, “Securitas” refers to Securitas AB of Sweden, rather than Switzerland’sSecuritas AG.Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
