Research and Markets: Market Research: Access Control Market Report 2013

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Access Control Market Report 2013" report to their offering.

This Market Report examines the UK market for physical access control, which is primarily concerned with the restriction of a particular room, structure or site to authorised personnel only, allowing users to restrict or grant access, monitor throughput, and report unauthorised access attempts in certain areas.

The types of products covered by this report include audio and video entryphones, keypad systems, biometric systems, and card- or token-based access control systems. Within card- or token-based access control systems there is a range of technology solutions available, including magnetic-stripe cards, Weigand cards, barcode cards, proximity systems, long-range/hands-free systems, vehicle access control systems, smart cards and dual-function cards.

The authors estimate the UK access control market to have fallen in value by 5.9% between 2008 and 2012. Sluggish economic growth, low business investment levels, and the struggling construction sector are important factors affecting demand for access control products.

Businesses operating in the UK access control industry include: product manufacturers, suppliers, systems designers and installers, and wholesale distributors. The majority of leading manufacturers and suppliers are part of large, foreign-owned multinational companies, although there are also several independent UK companies and subsidiaries of public limited companies (PLCs) that operate in the market. Many of the leading systems designers and installers are also UK subsidiaries of large multinationals, as are some of the leading wholesale distributors.

The authors predict that there will be an ongoing need for protection against crime, which, in turn, will ensure continued growth in the UK access control market. However, sluggish recovery of the UK economy and the housing market will slow market growth. The authors forecast that the UK access control market will grow by 7.3% between 2013 and 2017.
