As more multifamily operators implement access control systems for their buildings, the market for building access control security has seen a steady increase in the demand for growth. Throughout the world, commercial security is evolving dramatically to meet the demands of a rapidly changing business environment. Health and safety concerns are continuing to drive new approaches to improve public health and manage people more effectively. Building and asset threats have become more complex. Hence the market for building access control security is growing in the market.

Further supporting factors include:

  • Growing demand for advanced technologies.
  • The rise of 5G networks and the increasing demand for the internet.
  • Enhanced physical security to prevent unauthorized access.
  • Reduced security risks.
  • Improved access management.
  • Demand for SaaS products.
  • Enhanced cloud-based services.
  • Providing better customer service and experiences.
  • A greater degree of flexibility and customization for consumers.
  • Remote access management for multiple locations.
  • Growing public and private security investments.

A rising demand for advanced technologies, including both hardware and services, is extending the market. Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions are becoming more prevalent, making access credentials easier to manage, and allowing users to access credentials from smartphones without having to touch the screen. Service considerations have become increasingly important, particularly in security monitoring, design, implementation, and support.

As the use of biometric technology grows, the market for access control is expected to grow rapidly in the market. Many organizations are trying to minimize the use of touch biometrics, like fingerprint recognition, which is currently the most widely used biometric control. An alternative that is making its way into the mainstream is using an iris-scanning machine. These factors are expected to increase demand for building access control security.

For example, the award-winning access control provider Alcatraz AI has enhanced its flagship facial authentication product, the Rock, by adding a web-based, consent management system on mobile devices. As a result, building security will be enhanced and employee and visitor registration will be streamlined.

Various regions in the world use access control security systems in order to protect sensitive areas and buildings from unauthorized access. Regional differences in regulations, security requirements, and cultural practices may influence the access control measures used in a specific region.

Increasing infrastructure and smart construction in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and other regions are expected to lead to an increase in building access control security demand. With rising disposable incomes and a high standard of living in Asia Pacific, the market for access control systems is experiencing rapid growth in the market.

The expansion of commercial space and demand for high-tech office spaces has resulted in an exponential rise in the market for biometric, camera, and card recognition systems. Increasing security concerns over government personnel and secure premises are expected to drive demand in this market in the near future.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for security officers have been unfilled by over 26% in the United States since 2022, which has left numerous organizations short-staffed and overburdened. In response to these labor shortages, organizations reduced their facilities and security personnel. The implementation of seamless and remote monitoring capabilities became vital for ensuring the safety of buildings.

Building Access Control Security Market Overview

The demand for the elimination of issues associated with conventional access control systems, complemented by continuous innovations in technology, has led to the introduction of physical building access control security systems.

Building access control security systems are systems accessed without the requirement of a key. Technological innovations have led to the introduction of smart cards and proximity cards as well, besides magnetic stripe cards (under the card-based entry system market). In addition to offering an enhanced end-user experience, companies are strengthening the security of premises as well.

Building access control security systems, besides its primary application of granting access, can be used as an identity management, and time and attendance management system. It is, however, being witnessed that, multi-modal, i.e., physical access control systems with two or more modes of access (entry systems) are preferred over single-modal entry systems.

Out of all the types, biometric systems are the most preferred physical access control systems, owing to their applications across a majority of industry verticals.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak on Building Access Control Security Market

Owing to the spread of the novel coronavirus, individuals are reducing spending time in close contact with others within enclosed spaces and it is a real challenge for institutions like university campuses and colleges. Thus the demand for building access control security has increased given that these systems help colleges and universities to keep track of who is on their campuses.

Thus the adoption of building access control security is growing to manage occupancy and density of individuals in enclosed places, which is a significant factor driving the growth of the market. There are building access control security systems with turnstiles, fingerprint scanners, touchscreens, and buttons, which creates an infection risk during the pandemic outbreak.

Thus to restrict the spread of viruses, the demand for contactless biometric solutions is increasing at a tremendous rate. Hence, the building access control security market is expected to grow by 1.2X by the end of Q4 2020.
