Demand for safety and security alarms is expected to rise 4.8% per year through 2023 to $5.7 billion. In general, sales of safety and security alarms are dependent on a range of factors, including:

  • building codes and regulations
  • health of the economy and construction activity
  • perceived risk of crime

While these factors are expected to continue to support sales going forward, a number of key dynamics are helping shape the market, including a growing range of safety and security alarm suppliers, new product development, and demographic trends.

Smart Home Security Suppliers & Multi-Service Operators Spur Residential Adoption

The influx of smart home security suppliers and MSOs (multi-service operators) is increasing consumer awareness of these products:

  • Smart home security companies are enabling consumers to more easily purchase and install security systems with online ordering and DIY installation.
  • MSOs are increasingly offering consumers the ability to bundle security equipment and services with their cable and internet packages.

These new players are increasing market penetration in residential applications. Additionally, as entry-level smart security products are often less expensive than traditional security products, they can serve as a gateway to more advanced home security products and services. As a result, increased adoption is expected to open up opportunities for upgrades.

Product Development Creating Integrated & Connected Systems

Innovations in safety and security alarm technology are allowing end users to more easily interact with their alarm systems. More product types can be integrated with building systems and home automation products, allowing systems to be managed from a single interface. Additionally, improvements in connectivity allow security systems to be controlled and monitored remotely from smartphones or central stations. Furthermore, older systems can be retrofitted with communicators that allow landline-based systems to connect via cellular or Internet Protocol (IP) networks. This is particularly important as sunsets are reached for various network types, though concerns about cybersecurity may limit adoption to some extent.
