New research from 6Wresearch shows that GCC security and surveillance market revenues are projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during 2019-25. This growth, according to the researchers, is primarily due to improving economic performance across the region as a result of increasing oil prices, increasing FDI and government spending, growing tourism, increased IT spending and rising security concerns.

The GCC security and surveillance market witnessed growth during 2017-18 as a result of improved implementation of government norms for mandatory installation of video surveillance systems with regulations that mandates the retention of footage ranging from 90 days to 180 days in countries such as Saudi Arabia and UAE. Increased consumer awareness regarding security in public places as well as in the residential sector, along with boom in the construction sector of the region are some of the key factors contributing significantly to the growth of GCC security and surveillance market.
