With nearly 200 million people and a $2 trillion economy that has expanded 56 percent in the past five years, Brazil is on the threshold of transitioning from developing country to industrialized nation.
The country, though, still has one of the highest crime rates in the world. And as it prepares to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics, both the public and private sector are investing heavily in security equipment.
The Security Industry Association’s new online 2012 Brazil Security Market Report found that the nation’s market for electronic security equipment totals $592 million and is expected to more than triple to $1.8 billion by 2017. The current market breaks down as follows:
Video Surveillance – 39.6 percent
Access Control – 20.8 percent
Intrusion Alarms – 19.2 percent
Fire Detection and Suppression – 10.4 percent
Electronic Article Surveillance – 10 percent
The report goes much deeper than this, however, and includes, at the national, regional and city level:
Analysis of Demographic Data
Information about End-User Segments and Demand
Identification of Drivers of and Restraints on Growth
Highlighting of Key Success Factors
