US electronic access control demand will grow 10.4 percent annually through 2009 driven by technological innovation, falling prices and relatively high crime rates. Biometrics (e.g., fingerprint and hand geometry, face and voice recognition, iris scanners) and smart cards will grow the fastest. The best market gains will come from the air transport segment.
This study analyzes the $4.4 billion US electronic access control industry. It presents historical demand data (1994, 1999 and 2004) and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by card-based system (e.g., magnetic strip, wireless/proximity, smart, keypad/combination); by biometric systems (e.g., finger and fingerprint, facial, hand, retinal and iris, voice, signature analysis); by other product (e.g., remote keyless entry, database and system integration, software); and by market.
The study also considers market environment trends and indicators, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 major competitors including ASSA ABLOY, Honeywell, Lear, Tyco International, DataCard, Diebold, General Electric, Johnson Controls, and Stanley Works.
