Currently, there is a growing trend towards deploying security systems within healthcare facilities in order to increase the security and safety of the patients, staff, property, and information. The global hospital security systems market is poised to grow at a healthy double-digit CAGR during the forecast period (2015 to 2020). These systems comprise intrusion detection, access control, video surveillance, and emergency communication systems. The hospital security systems market is driven by the stringent industry guidelines for safety of patients and their information, increasing threat of bioterrorism, increasing incidences of patient and staff assaults, and rising demand for enhanced security systems. The global security systems market has reaped significant opportunities from the healthcare sector, mainly due to strong growth of the healthcare industry in the past few years, and greater need within the healthcare industry to provide better security to assets.
Primary factors responsible for the growth of this market are the rising need of healthcare providers to maintain compliance with state and federal laws; and the need to prevent healthcare facilities from theft, assault, and other criminal activities, as healthcare organizations deal with sensitive issues and information related to patients. The significant rise in demand of integrated solutions for security, facility, and data management due to shrinking margins of the hospitals provides further growth opportunities for the hospital security systems market. However, high cost of these systems, cyber security concerns, lack of awareness in developing countries, and limited training programs regarding the security and safety of these systems are restricting the growth of this market to a certain extent.
Geographically, North America dominates the market, primarily due to its stringent regulations for patient safety and healthcare information security. Factors such as rising need for cost containment measures in healthcare delivery and increasing measures for patient safety are further propelling growth of this region.
Some of the major players in the hospital security systems market include, ADT Corporation (U.S.), Avigilon Corporation (Canada), Schneider Electric SE (France), Cisco Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Allied Telesis, Inc. (U.S.), Atos SE (France), Tyco Security Products (U.S.), Seico Security Systems (U.S.), and Nedap (Netherlands),
Scope of the Report
Hospital security systems are designed to create and manage a secure and safe environment within the healthcare facility. These systems include access control, infant security, intrusion detection, emergency notification, video surveillance, and video analytics systems. The other hospital security systems include fire safety, vehicle inspection, and virtual fencing systems. Integration of these separate security systems under a flexible building automation system (BAS) provides a powerful security solution with a lower upfront investment, and results in improved patient care and clinical efficiency. These systems enable organizations to comply with the regulatory requirements of the healthcare industry. All of the above reasons, coupled with the benefits of a secure environment created by these systems, are expected to boost the growth of the hospital security systems market.
