Greater Precision of Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems Lures More End Users, Finds Frost & Sullivan

LONDON, June 30, 2010 - Throughout the world, the awareness of the reliability and affordability
of perimeter protection systems has been fuelled by growing risks facing the
critical infrastructure sector and rising costs associated with manned
guarding services. This awareness has successfully paved the way to the
adoption of Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems (PIDS).



New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (,
Opportunities in the World Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems Market,
finds that the market earned revenues of US$230.4 million in 2009, and
estimates this to reach US$338.4 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.

Although the economic recession and lack of regulations initially subdued
the widescale spread of PIDS, it is expected that the market will witness a
sound increase in its revenues from 2013 onwards. This boost is anticipated
to result from technological breakthroughs and improvements in perimeter
detection capabilities - improvements which are designed 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 defence."
