Research and Markets: Analysis of the Global Utilities Infrastructure Security Market 2014

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7bfxw4/analysis_of_the) has announced the addition of the "Analysis of the Global Utilities Infrastructure Security Market 2014" report to their offering.

"The increasing global appetite for energy is driving investment in the utilities infrastructure security market. Critical infrastructure is expensive and involves high-value construction projects. However, costs differ widely between regions and depend significantly upon risk. Also, the cost of securing these sites varies depending on threat perceptions and budgets. Fossil-fuel power generation will remain the focus of most utility operators' spending, but securing renewable energy technology is growing area of interest with significant capability gaps. For water operators, securing key stages of the production cycle is critical to mitigating major risks such as contamination where chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNe) agents are of most concern."

Key Findings

  • The increasing global appetite for energy is driving considerable investments in utilities and water infrastructure for plants, transmission, and storage. Securing each of these critical points of the value chain requires robust physical and IT security solutions.
  • Critical infrastructure is expensive and involves high-value construction projects, but costs differ widely between regions and depend significantly upon risk. The cost of securing these sites varies by region depending on threat perceptions and budgets.
  • Fossil-fuel power generation will remain the focus of most utility operators' spending, but securing renewable energy technology is a growing area of interest with significant capability gaps. For water operators, securing key stages of the production cycle is critical to mitigating major risks such as contamination where chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNe) agents are the primary concern.
  • Markets with more mature, pre-existing security capabilities and higher budgets invest the most in security, irrespective of the nature and size of infrastructure projects. The highest-spending regions are driven by investments in expensive, innovative technology and integrated management that are considered vital additions to legacy solutions.
  • North America and Europe remain strong markets, buoyed by increased investment in high-technology solutions, particularly as add-ons to existing infrastructure. Asia-Pacific is growing and driven by the high demand for energy and subsequent requirements for new infrastructure development.
  • The cybersecurity segment remains relatively neglected in terms of investment, whereas investment in surveillance and perimeter security solutions remains strong. Integrating physical security with cybersecurity measures will be key.
