Speaking on the announcement of the 12th edition of the IFSEC India Show, Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, “The South Asia region, which the IFSEC India Expo brings within its radar, is a vulnerable as well as progressive zone with ongoing threats to homeland security, rising urbanisation, proliferating crimes, and low people-to-police ratio being some of the most significant factors. The Government of India recognises this vulnerability and has introduced strict regulations and guidelines that promote the use of security and surveillance in the country — the security of children within school premises, and the growing need for women’s safety being noteworthy instances. Besides, in a bid to make the country truly modern and secure, it has till date invested around 48,000 crores for its smart city initiative that aims to create at least 100 smart cities in India. Owing to these factors, it comes as no surprise that the electronic security market in India is expected to witness a tremendous growth with a projected CAGR of nearly 13 per cent over the next decade.”
IFSEC India 2018 aims to act as a catalyst for the progress and vision of this proliferating industry, as it provides a platform for industry players to collectively ideate, innovate, spot trends and enable the shift in India’s security paradigm from a defensive approach to a monitoring and responsive one,” he further added.
IFSEC India showcased products and technologies pertaining to CCTV & Surveillance, Biometrics & RFID, Integrated Systems, Access Control, GPS Systems, Video Management, Parking Automation, Transport, Perimeter Protection, IoT, Smart Homes, Security & Safe Cities in addition to surveillance for the knowledge of end users and providers.
