The world homeland security market has witnessed rapid growth in the recent years, owing to rising number of terrorist attacks, cross border disputes, illegal immigration, smuggling, human trafficking, and numerous natural disasters. Several companies have heavily invested in the production of innovative products and services to tackle and defend the adverse situations of affected nations across the globe. However, high price of these products and services and financial downturns of nations are expected to restrict the market growth. Growing need for information security and technological development are expected to create numerous opportunities for the homeland security market.

The world homeland security market is segmented based on type, end user, and geography. Based on the type of homeland security, the market is segmented into border security, aviation security, maritime security, critical infrastructure security, cyber security, mass transport security, CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear) security, and others (first responders, counter terror intelligence, C3I, pipeline security). Public and private sectors are the key end users of the market. This report analyzes the global market based on four key regions, namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

In addition, the critical infrastructure segment is presently the fastest growing segment, and is projected to grow at a CAGR 7.2% during the forecast period, owing to proactive government initiatives for protecting critical infrastructures in areas such as telecommunication, power plants, oil & gas, defense, financial & security services, manufacturing, and others.

North America accounted for majority of the global market share in 2015, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period due to heavy investment by government organizations in homeland security in the region.
