Physical Access Control Systems Market Research Report - Segmentation By Size, Share, Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact Analysis - Industry Forecast (2022 to 2027)

Physical Access Control Systems Market Size (2022 - 2027)

Global demand for physical access control systems (PACS) increased by over 10% year over year (YoY) in 2021, reaching 2.2 million units. In 2021, demand for biometric PACS is estimated to increase by 9% to 850 000 units, while demand for card-based PACS will increase by 12.5 percent to 960 000 units. In 2021, the worldwide access control system market is projected to be worth over $ 15.3 billion, with PACS accounting for nearly 45 percent of total value generation.

Unauthorized access to a company's physical assets, such as campuses, buildings, and cards, as well as sensitive data, such as network, file, username, and password, is restricted by an access control system. It entails evaluating personal identification papers, using a digital certificate to validate the validity of a website, and comparing login credentials to stored information. Access control systems that include user credentials, card readers, intercom, auditing, and reporting are being used by several businesses. They implement lockdown methods to prevent unwanted access to rooms and buildings. Physical access control systems (PACS) are a form of physical security system that allows or restricts entry to a specific area or building. PACS are frequently placed to safeguard companies and property from vandalism, theft, and trespassing, and they are particularly effective in locations that require greater levels of security and protection. Physical access control processes, unlike physical obstacles such as retaining walls, fences, or strategic landscaping, regulate who, how, and when a person can get access.

Because of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) epidemic, critical corporate activities have been digitized, and the change to remote working modes has raised the danger of cybersecurity threats and assaults. This is motivating businesses all over the world to use access control systems for tracking and monitoring, preventing data breaches, and maintaining business continuity. Furthermore, SMEs are using multi-factor authentication (MFA) models that use biometrics, a key fob, a password, and a personal identification number (PIN) to validate a person's identity. These methods strengthen physical security by restricting access to buildings for onsite workers, visitors, and the media.


An increasing number of Organized Crime helps drive the Physical Access Control Systems Market

During terrorist attacks and other criminal actions, access control technologies enable quick and efficient real-time reactions. Commercial, government, industrial, and residential sectors all benefit from the usage of smart cards, biometric devices, and electronic gadgets for greater security and authentication. To improve the security of persons and assets, access control systems are also placed in highly restricted regions, nuclear reactors, and organizations.

Mobile-based access control implementation drives the market growth

The use of biometrics in conjunction with mobile devices improves the level of security in a variety of applications. Biometrics-enabled smartphones are a complementary new platform that is estimated to grow the authentication business while also improving user security and convenience. Suprema HQ introduced a smartphone-based contactless access control product and management platform in April 2020. The platform combines a smartphone application with NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology for door and lock access to manage, issue, and monitor access credentials.

Time Management for Employees boosts the physical access control systems market

Biometric systems track the timing of the entry and exit of the employees which helps the manager to know the total amount of time spent on work by the employees of the company. If an employee is not adhering to the time management policies of the company and joining late for a longer period, it will notify the manager and will help the companies to take action against such employees.


Privacy Concerns and Data Breach from Physical Access Control Systemstifle market growth

The growing interconnection of IoT-enabled devices for data exchange and collection dramatically increases the number of vulnerabilities within a system. Additionally, while crucial information is in transit, government agencies, data collectors, and hackers may get unauthorized access to it. This might jeopardize an individual's privacy while also posing a security risk. If personal information is given to someone who isn't supposed to have it, it might be abused, resulting in a security breach. As a result, the danger of cyberattacks via smart devices or IoT-enabled gadgets is impeding the market's growth.

Lack of knowledge about the Physical Access Control System restrains the market growth

Organizations should be made aware of the importance of sensitive data security, safe information processing, and the consequences associated with data misuse. All of these dangers may be reduced by restricting access to this data and infrastructure to only authorized parties. Companies should engage in conferences and fairs to raise user knowledge about the benefits of modern security solutions.
