This industry research report identifies ADT Security Services, ASSA ABLOY, Bosch Security Systems, Honeywell, Nortek Security and Control, and Tyco Security Products as the key vendors in the global residential security systems market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by product type and by geography.

Overview of the global residential security systems market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global residential security systems market will grow steadily over the next four years and will post a CAGR of more than 7% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the rise in the number of threats to residential buildings as one of the primary growth factors for the home security systems market. As a result of the increasing incidences of thefts and unauthorized access to individual homes and residential buildings, end-users have started equipping residential buildings with special platforms that will help them access electronic devices at home through mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets computers, and laptops from remote locations. Home security solutions such as security cameras and smart locks are robust and reliable and are effective in preventing unwanted access to residences.

The emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) in residential security systems will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market in the next four years. Home security products such as access control, intruder alarms, and video surveillance are self-contained and are configured only for specific purposes. The use of IoT can improve existing security features as it can provide data, that will help in predicting security features that respond to situations relating to property or people. Vendors such as Cisco Systems and Tyco Security Products have already started offering home security solutions that detect changes in heat, sound, and motion and alert customers. IoT analyzes this data and automatically adjusts the temperature, lights, and other electronics as preferred by users.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market has a presence of numerous vendors and is characterized by the domination of a few home security companies who hold major market shares. Technological innovations play a significant role in the growth of vendors. The recent years have witnessed market consolidation and analysts estimate this trend to continue in the coming years as well. The market will also witness the entry of a considerable number of private labels and startups, especially in the DIY residential security products market, intensifying the already fierce competitive environment. To sustain the competition and gain a considerable market share, vendors have the need to expand their portfolios and distinguish their product and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • ADT Security Services
