Urbanization and industrialization
Urbanization and industrialization are continuing as people continue to move into cities. The global urban population is growing by more than 1.5 million people every week, and the high population density could in turn lead to concerns about crime.
The residential security market is also expected to grow rapidly in most developed countries as technological monitoring equipment becomes more common. Continued industrialization and increased global industrial production are leading to investments in production facilities, offices and other workplaces, each with specific security needs.

Manufacturing industries, airports, data centers, ports and public transportation are examples of operations that rely on a well-functioning infrastructure and where disruptions could result in high costs and increased vulnerability.
