The Middle East homeland security market
The homeland security industry across the globe is growing faster than ever before.
The Middle East homeland security market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 18.7 percent and hit USD 34 billion per year by 2020 (Frost & Sullivan). This growth is driven primarily by the economic diversification and regional mega-events (the Dubai Expo 2020 or the FIFA World Cup 2022) which boost infrastructure investments. These regional mega-events are driving infrastructure investment which must be protected.
New solutions and advanced security systems are required to face the ever-changing threats, to enhance homeland security, to minimize the possibility of disasters, and to improve emergency response rates.
