Electronic Access Control Systems Market Global Forecast, Market Share, Size, Growth and Industry Analysis, 2014 - 2019


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/07/2016 -- A new Transparency Market Research report states that the global electronic access control systems market stood at US$15.406 bn in 2013 and is anticipated to reach US$31.188 bn in 2019, by expanding at a CAGR of 12.60% from 2014 to 2019. The report is titled "Electronic Access Control Systems Market Global Forecast, Market Share, Size, Growth and Industry Analysis, 2014 - 2019."

Electronic access control (EAC) systems are the systems installed and designed for providing protection against the entry of unwanted visitors into a property and for allowing free entry and movement for the authorized users. The installation of these systems help provide protection to visitors, employees, property, and stock. These systems present exit and entry control through nominated doors with the help of a control panel and a certain form of electronic facility. EAC systems also present a host of other features that are quite useful in a number of areas such as integration with payroll systems, attendance functions, vending machine applications, car park management, etc.

As per this report, the market for EAC systems is fuelled by the increasing activities of terrorism and the increasing crime rate demanding security solutions. In addition, the rising government regulations have also resulted in the increasing usage of EAC systems globally. Furthermore, rising investments in infrastructure will also have a positive impact on the growth of the market. On the other hand, the absence of a proper infrastructure and the lack of awareness amongst individuals on technological improvements are amongst the chief factors threatening to the growth of this market.
