Market Report Description

The Global Access Control Market size is expected to reach $16.2 billion by 2029, rising at a market growth of 8.1% CAGR during the forecast period.

Access Control is a strategy to increase the security of any computing system by preventing unauthorized users from accessing certain resources. It includes both logical access and physical access. At the same time, physical access control restricts physical IT assets, buildings, and campuses, and logical access control links with system files, data, and computer networks. The access control solution comprises confirming a person's identification using biometrics or access cards and confirming this with any business entities to authorize access.

Access Control Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2019-2029

The main drivers of market expansion are the escalating security concerns for data security and the expanding penetration of cyber threats. Further factors boosting market expansion include the growing use of wireless technology & electronic devices. In addition, the development of the Internet of Things for cloud computing, connected devices, and blockchain technology due to technological advancements helps to impose a favorable outlook on the market.

The standard for security is raised in many applications by using biometrics with mobile devices. The market for access control is expected to grow due to smartphones' support for biometrics, which will also improve consumer convenience and security. By protecting workers from potential occurrences in workplaces or other locations, access control systems serve as security for employers and employees. To increase accountability, the system also provides for log keeping. The improvement of office environment safety and security is a result of the use of access control systems.

The need for connected access control systems for houses that can be accessed remotely is driven by the expanding uptake of cutting-edge home solutions. Touchless visitor control through video intercom fast gains popularity as a desirable option for residential complexes worldwide, but mostly in the US. Even when tenants are not at home, these systems allow them to appear to be there. Property managers can boost their security due to a new building operating level called video intercom access control. Moreover, increasing security while lowering costs is crucial across numerous industry verticals as frauds, cyberattacks, and government authentication regulations continue to expand in reach and sophistication.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic is the spark for quickening this improvement, the global IT sector is moving faster to improve its security techniques and capabilities. The need for sophisticated technologies and authentication has increased due to the phenomenal development in cyberattacks or phishing assaults brought on by working from home. It will mark a turning point in the widespread usage of strong authentication techniques to protect valuables and sensitive data. In addition, the demand for multistep verification & authentication systems is increasing due to the developing digital infrastructure, fueling the expansion of the access control market.

Market Growth Factors

Growing reliance on cloud centered applications

The ability to manage numerous sites with a single system has made adopting cloud-based solutions an emerging trend. This system may simply manage all-access levels. The need for these solutions is developing due to increasing physical & logical security concerns in manufacturing and industrial facilities. Defense and military organizations, manufacturing facilities, and industrial plants continually use remote security solutions. Additional important factors pushing the use of cloud-based systems are real-time and remote access revocation, zero downtime, continuous data backups, quick production evolution, and continual security updates. This grown reliance on cloud-centered applications is estimated to support the growth of the access control market.

Multifactor & multimodal authentication is becoming more popular

Multifactor or multimodal identification systems are becoming increasingly important to the process of gaining digital access. With the increased need for security, multifactor authentication has recently received much attention. The physical security that is based on a system of two-factor authentication is necessary for many different industries, including the oil and gas industry, utility businesses, power plants, and other key infrastructure. In addition, customers from businesses that require a higher level of protection are increasingly adopting the multifactor authentication method. This would further support the market's expansion.

Market Restraining Factors

Accessibility of free access control services

Security as a cloud service provider offers security as a service to help them manage their infrastructure and resources, thereby assisting them in lowering their costs and improving the speed and efficiency with which they deliver their services. Several different suppliers each offer a vast selection of cloud services, many of which can be purchased at a reduced cost or obtained as part of service bundles free of charge. In addition, free access control services expose users to potential dangers, including account or service hijacking, insecure interfaces and APIs, and technological weaknesses, particularly when used in shared environments. As a result of this, the availability of free access control services is a factor that slows down the growth rate of the access control market.

Offering Outlook

Based on offering, the access control market is segmented into hardware, software, and services. The hardware segment held the highest revenue share in the access control market in 2022. This is because the hardware sales-driven business model is becoming increasingly popular. Companies now control access for visitors and staff due to acknowledging the necessity for security. Smart cards, wireless lock systems, portable hand-held card readers, biometric applications, and encrypted door controls are just a few examples of integrated hardware solutions that improve security and safeguard people, property, and assets.

Vertical Outlook

On the basis of vertical, the access control market is fragmented into commercial, military & defense, government, education, healthcare, manufacturing & industrial, and transportation. In 2022, the government segment projected a prominent revenue share in the access control market. When a terrorist attack or criminal activity occurs, access control systems enable quick and efficient real-time responses. Enhancing the security and safety of the government and the defense sector also greatly benefits from using smart cards, biometric devices, and electronic gadgets for greater security and authentication. Access control systems are also used in highly restricted areas, nuclear power plants, and commercial buildings to safeguard employees and assets. The growth of the segment is driven by these elements.
