Current Scenario of Electronics Sector in India

The Indian safety and security market had been growing at a modest rate over the past few decades. But, the growing terrorist activities, coupled with increasing crime rates have driven up the domestic demand for effective security systems across the country.

In this regard, use of closed circuit television (CCTV) or video surveillance, in particular, has emerged as the most viable solution that has gained significant momentum in the country.

According to a recent analysis by Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham), the video surveillance and CCTV market in India is growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 30 percent and is likely to cross Rs 2,200 crore by 2015. The Indian CCTV camera market is currently poised at about Rs 1,300 crore and accounts for about 40 percent of the Rs 3,250 crore worth total electronic security market in India, according to an analysis on CCTV/video surveillance market. This would even translate to an incremental human resource requirement of about 3 million to 3.2 million.
