PALM BEACH, Fla., July 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Although the recent global health crisis has hampered the growth in the home security systems market, experts predict that stronger growth is on the horizon. A report from MarketsAndMarkets projects that, the global home security systems market size, which is valued at USD 53.6 billion in 2020, is expected to reach USD $78.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period. The growth of the home security systems market is driven by factors such as growing awareness regarding home security systems, the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and wireless technologies and increasing adoption of IP cameras for video surveillance amid COVID-19 crisis. The report said: "The pandemic COVID-19 has severely impacted the growth of the global home security systems market. Global sales are expected to decline by 5–10% in this fiscal year, depending upon the progression of the virus spread. The impact of COVID-19 on major markets such as the US and China has been significantly adverse, as supply chain disruption in China has resulted in a decline in the demand for home security systems. The decrease in the number of new construction projects and the closure of manufacturing facilities are some of the factors affecting the demand in China. The market in the US is expected to show stronger growth in comparison to other countries in the Americas region." Active companies in the markets this week include: ATWEC Technologies, Inc. (OTCPK: ATWT), ADT Inc. (NYSE: ADT), Alarm.com Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALRM), Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), Wrap Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WRTC).
The article continued: "The introduction of security solutions based on data-driven machine learning and AI is the emerging trend in the home security systems market. The intelligent virtual assistants (IVA), such as Alexa and Google, have already been integrated by companies in different home security systems. The surveillance cameras today use AI and deep learning to empower security with more reliability and accuracy… The key benefits of this new technology include human body detection, facial recognition, people counting, and vehicle management.
