Factors responsible for fuelling the demand for pedestrian access control systems are as follows:

  • Rising demand for safety and security in public places.
  • Increasing awareness about the advantages of pedestrian entrance control systems.
  • Increasing number of construction activities and infrastructure development initiatives across the globe.
  • A rise in the number of smart cities that are increasingly adopting advanced technologies for enhanced safety and security.
  • An increase in demand for automated systems that can help in the management of a large crowd effectively.

How does the pedestrian access control system work?

When a person approaches a pedestrian access control system, they are asked to provide some form of identification. This can be done in many ways, such as:

  • Access cards: The person presents an access card, which contains information that identifies them as a verified user.
  • PIN codes: The person enters a personal identification number (PIN) that is linked with their authentication.
  • Biometric authentication: A biometric sample is provided by an individual such as an iris scan, fingerprint, or facial recognition, which is then matched to a stored database to verify their identity.

Once the person is verified, the pedestrian access control system allows them to enter the restricted area. If the person is not authenticated, the system will deny their entry and trigger an alarm to notify security personnel.

What are the advantages of using a pedestrian access control system?

  • Improved security: A pedestrian access control system can fortify building security by denying access to unauthorized individuals. This will help to prevent theft, vandalism, and other security breaches.
  • Increased safety: Employing these systems can help improve safety by restricting unauthorized access to potentially hazardous areas, like construction sites or industrial plants.
  • Audit trails: These systems can provide an audit trail of who entered or left the restricted area, and at what time. This information can be of crucial value for investigations and can help identify security risks.
  • Increased efficiency: These systems can help increase efficiency by reducing the need for manual security checks, and by enabling authorized personnel to enter and exit freely.

Customization: The customization ability of these systems to fit specific security needs of a building or facility is increasing its adoption across various sectors. Customization includes the level of authentication used, the level of security required, and the areas that require access control.

Security concerns are receiving urgent attention these days in residential, commercial and industrial, defense, and government sectors. There is a need to tackle growing threat from anti-social elements across the world in a more sophisticated and robust manner. Pedestrian access control systems are one among the available solutions for the same.These include biometric systems, security entrance lanes, swing gates, tripod turnstiles, security doors, and metal detector systems.

Pedestrian access control systems are increasingly being installed in corporate offices, research laboratories, industries, railway stations, airport terminals, shopping malls, multiplexes, government offices, and other public and private infrastructures. Market drivers identified in this segment are growing security concerns, crowd management, need for pedestrian and entrants’ record management, prevention of archeological sites from physical threat, and ensuring public safety. The growing field of event management, organization of sporting events and cultural events, and mass gatherings are further driving the need for pedestrian access control systems. A macroeconomic view indicatesthat governments especially in developing regions allocate significant share of their budget for homeland security enhancement and infrastructure.Safety regulations and push from the government are helping to increase the degree of awareness among end-users.

The marketplace for pedestrian access control systems is largely fragmented, with the existenceof a large number of domestic and regional players across the globe. The market growth for these systems in developed economies is likely to be between 7% and 10%, whereas in developing regions the growth may even exceed 15% in the next five years. Some of the market players in this segment are Turnstar, Solus, PERCo, Magnetic Autocontrol Pvt. Ltd., MAGNET Security & Automation, and FAAC Group.
