Physical Access Control Market: Introduction
As smartphones have become an essential device today, industries are moving towards smartphones for secure physical access control by replacing current PIN systems, cards, and keys. There is an inclusion of NFC and Bluetooth technology in smartphones which provides a feature for exchanging data, so users can present mobile credentials from their phones to a control access reader through a physical access control technology. Also, the use of wearables in the access control market has substituted traditional locking methods used in physical access control in the same way as smartphones. Rings, wristbands, and glasses have notably been developed, but are not very widespread. Physical access control can be defined as a system capable of identifying who enters or leaves an area of control, and managing the admittance of the person to the building, a specific space, or site.
Physical Access Control Market: Drivers and Challenges
Strong adoption of smartphones and other mobile devices as authentication systems acts as a key driver for the physical access control market. Another driver for the physical access control market are the growing security concerns all round the world, especially for the entrances of offices. The physical access control technologies market has also been related to timing and lifestyle. As security systems were installed long back in enterprises, which were the old physical access control technologies, enterprises now like to invest less on new systems like smartphone access due to scarcity of funds. A lot of businesses are now spending on upgrading physical access control systems. Another driver for the physical access control market includes the reduction of credential costs, as new credential forms drive costs down; like the cost of traditional proximity cards over digital credentials has been on the higher side in the physical access control market.
It takes more time for people to accept to change in their personal lives. As such, end user acceptance has been a major issue, and is restraining the physical access control market. Also, since the sector is slowly changing, the migration to new systems may take some time. The physical access control market is stuck with card-based systems, often proprietary, where smart cards for physical access control and also biometrics for physical access control have been long awaited, but have not been reaching the mass market. This has also acted as a restraint for the physical access control market.
