Turkey’s access control systems market is expected to proliferate over the next six years, influenced by surging demand from commercial sector, increasing IT & security spending and emergence of IP technology based access control systems coupled with increasing penetration of biometric technology based access control systems. Additionally, government initiatives are supervising the installations of electronic security systems throughout the country in consequence of increasing terrorist activities and other security concerns.
According to 6Wresearch, Turkey’s access control systems market is projected to reach over $87 million by 2021. Collective growth from rising infrastructure and government spending is contributing majorly to the overall growth of access control market in Turkey. Turkey posted an increase in construction activities from the last year and recorded 5% year-over-year growth in construction market. Commercial offices accounted for prevalent revenue share for access control systems in Turkey.
According to senior research analyst Prijo Samuel, Contactless proximity card readers held majority of the demand, whereas in biometrics market, demand for fingerprint based access control systems is growing tremendously.
“Fingerprint, iris and facial technology based biometric access control systems are gaining popularity in Turkey, where iris biometrics access control systems are primarily getting deployed in highly secured areas. Further, penetration of multimodal biometrics access control is expected to surge through the forecast period.” Samuel further added.
Market for other access control technologies, primarily keypad readers and electronic door locks is declining due to shifting demand towards contactless and biometric access control systems. Declining price and increasing security threats would further augment the growth of biometric access control systems. Additionally, Aegean region contributed majority of the Turkey’s access control systems.
Some of the major companies in Turkey’s access control market include- Bosch Security Systems, Honeywell, IDTECK, Lenel Systems, Morpho (Safran), Rosslare Security, Siemens and Suprema.
