									Global Security Service Market demand to rise 7.4% annually through

This study analyzes global markets for private contractual security services. Markets covered

      guard and guard patrol services
      central station alarm monitoring services
      armored car transport and related cash handling and automated
      teller machine (ATM) services (jointly termed cash-in-transit/CIT
      services)
      private management of public adult correctional facilities
      private investigations, security consulting, systems integration,
      and other miscellaneous security services

Excluded are so-called “proprietary” security services, such as guards, detectives, and off-duty
police officers on the paid staff of nonsecurity business establishments. Also excluded are
security equipment and alarm installation and repair services (i.e., nonrecurring revenues),
locksmith activities, data security services, telematics, and security products manufacture and

Historical data (2001, 2006, and 2011) and forecasts to 2016 and 2021 are provided for revenues
(receipts) by type of service and market on a countryby- country and region by-region basis.
Detailed market data are valued in current US dollars, including inflation. Historical and forecast
security service employment data by country are also provided.

It should be noted that given the difficulty of predicting the public decision making process and
the frequent changes in public policy based on shifts in governments, revenues for the private
management of correctional facilities have only been forecast for countries which were actually
contracting out such services at the time of writing in January 2013. Aggregate forecasts for that
segment could therefore understate the size of the market for 2016 and 2021, if additional nations
decide to experiment with privatization in the interim.

National crime rate and employment historical data are provided where available; however,
differing definitions of crime and unemployment and varying reporting practices make country-
to-country comparisons difficult and render data for certain (primarily developing) countries
highly suspect. Discrepancies between crime and unemployment rate data presented here and
other published figures may reflect differing estimates of a country’s population for a given year.

A potential source of statistical discrepancy in the historical series for security service revenues
is the conversion from national currencies to a common currency (the US dollar). Every effort
has been made to adjust compiled data to form a consistent pattern for comparing the various
national security service markets, including the use of purchasing power parity currency

Data on security service demand are derived from differing sources and developed from
statistical relationships. Given that variations are commonplace in international reporting, data
presented in this study are historically consistent but may vary from other sources. Variances
may occur because of definitional differences, different methods of currency translation, and
various other factors. Every effort has been made to factor out security service revenues derived
from the activities of organized crime syndicates, proprietary and public sector security forces,
ancillary activities such as traffic control (e.g., in Japan), and the activities of
proprietary/contract hybrid security vendors.

In addition, major global security service vendors are identified and profiled, and the key
competitive variables are discussed. The entire report is framed within the world private security
industry’s economic, technological, and market environments; environmental variables affecting
security demand patterns are emphasized. Given the nature of the topic, special emphasis is
placed on demographic and socioeconomic factors influencing the incidence of crime and other
potential security risks, and thus the demand for security services. World security service market
share data presented in the “Industry Structure” section are estimated based on consultation with
multiple sources. In addition, tabular details may not add to totals due to rounding. Unless
otherwise noted, “Securitas” refers to Securitas AB of Sweden, rather than Switzerland’s
Securitas AG.
