Physical Access Control System (PACS) Market

Biometric-based Physical Access Control Systems Gaining Rapid Traction across End-use Verticals: States Fact.MR

Published : 02 Nov 2021 Industry: Technology

As per industry analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global physical access control system (PACS) market is anticipated to exceed a valuation of US$ 7.3 Bn in 2021, and expand at a promising CAGR of more than 10% over the forecast period of 2021 to 2031.

As per the European Banking Federation, around 1 in every 100 jobs in the EU is from was in the banking sector in 2019, while the average number of bank staff has been rising each year since the past decade, at 28%. PACS, being an integral part of the BFSI sector, is expected to experience further growth in demand through 2031.

Development of global smart cites are on the rise, and this is expected to reach a worth of more than US$ 150 Bn by end of 2021. This includes revenue generated by companies operating in these cities by offering products, services, and data technologies. Inclusion of PACS in residential and public spaces is likely to accelerate revenue generation in the future course of time.

The number of hospital across the globe is increasing post pandemic effect, as healthcare infrastructure is getting more robust. Currently, the number of hospitals across the U.S. is around 7,250, which are mostly turning digital for security purposes. This is providing the stage for PACS in the healthcare sector, which is expected to increase at a double digit-growth rate, with high installation of PACS in hospitals and healthcare facilities.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • Residential end use of physical access control systems is expected to remain the most dominant and likely to witness an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 3.2 Bn during 2021 – 2031.
  • Sales of physical access control system hardware is expected to expand at a substantial CAGR of 10% over the forecast period.
  • On the basis of sector, demand from institutions is expected to grow 3.2X, while that from services and communication & media is expected increase 2.4X by 2031.
  • Keypad-based and card-based PACS will collectively account for close to 60% revenue share in 2021, and remaining the 2/5 of the market will be capture by biometric PACS.
  • North America and Europe together are set to account for close to 45% market share by value by 2031.
  • The South Asia & Oceania market is expected to gain 166 BPS and become a market frontrunner to be valued at US$ 3.5 Bn by 2031.

“High adoption of PACS from services, communication, and media sectors is expected to create consistency in demand over the coming years,” says a Fact.MR analyst.

Winning Strategy

Owing to increasing adoption of electronic components around the world, decline in the prices of hardware components such as sensors is being witnessed. As sensors are an integral component of fingerprint biometric systems, this price decline has lowered overall cost. As such, market players are leveraging the decline in cost and expanding their portfolio offering services at a lower price range.

With the incorporation of Internet of Things (IoT) and information technology, businesses and institutes are getting smarter and efficient in terms of security. Physical access control provides added measurable values to businesses, while market players are developing long-term collaborations with different sector players to enable sustainable revenue generation.
