Overview of the Private Security Sector

According to FICCI the private security industry in India is estimated to be worth 22,000 crores and is likely to cross 40,000 crores by 2015. The industry?s most notable growth has been in the past 6-7 years, with a CAGR of over 25%. The number of companies operational is approximately 15, 000 including both unorganized and organized sectors. There are over 5 million private security guards available, as compared to 3.2 million police officers, which is one of the major factors in boosting the demand in the industry.

The domestic private security services industry aims at registering over 20 per cent growth in the next few years and expects to double its market size to 80,000 crores by 2020. The 40,000 crores private security sector in India, which has over 15,000 security services firms, operates across 600 districts and directly employs about 70 lakh individuals, and plans to achieve robust growth on the back of rising demand for manned guarding and cash services business. The private security services sector has a workforce of 7 million guard-men and women engaged in providing private security cover to the nation. The cash services business is still a small category of the private security industry, which currently contributes 10 per cent to the industry. This segment is expected to grow at a rate of 20-25 per cent over the next few years, which has to do with the growth of ATMs across the country.

This sector employs about 50,000 individuals and caters to approximately 1 lakh ATMs pan-India for cash replenishment services. Apart from man guarding and cash services, several security service companies provide allied services such as installation, operations and maintenance of electronic security products such as CCTVs. All these factors put together is only going to increase the job opportunities for an Certified Training Assessor across towns and cities in India.
