European Counter-Terror and Public Safety Market Surge from a 2008-2014 CAGR of 3.5% to a 2016-2020 CAGR of 13.4%, Says a New Research Report from Homeland Security Research Corp.

WASHINGTON DC, MAY 1, 2016


In light of the alarming ISIS inspired terror threats and the migration crisis, it is clear that present European security infrastructure cannot meet the challenge. A major overhaul of Western Europe’s internal security infrastructure and funding is already in progress leading to a forecasted $146 Billion 2020 market.

According to Homeland Security Research Corp. (HSRC) new report, European Homeland Security & Public Safety Technologies & Markets – 2016-2022, the European counter-terror and public safety infrastructure will go through an overhaul, sustaining a 13.4% 2016-2020 CAGR surge, nearly four times the pace of the previous five year period.   

Europe is facing terror threats and immigration calamity with a far greater reach than those resulting from its economic ones.  And, this alarming situation shows no sign of declining.  Europeans are now experiencing a disturbing new reality in which terror and migration crisis are quickly becoming the continent’s "New Norm”.

The European Counter Terror & Public Safety Market is boosted by the following drivers:

  • The ISIS-inspired complex and well-planned Paris and Brussels carnage (162 killed and 668 injured) which sent shockwaves across the continent.
  • The attacks shook the European governments and their security agencies unlike any other terror attacks since 9/11.
  • The Western European security forces are ill-equipped to encounter 21st century ISIS-inspired and trained terrorists who use cutting-edge encrypted communication, make a remarkable use of social networks to recruit and train jihadists and gather efficient pre-attack intelligence. They have been trained by ISIS ex-Iraqi military officers on planning and conducting modern day guerrilla warfare and using modern weapons.
  • Europol estimates that up to 5,000 European jihadists have returned to the EU after obtaining combat experience on the battlefields of the Middle East.
  • West European governments understand that they are caught between a rock and a hard place. It is for them to decide how to transform the national counter terror infrastructure, improve interagency cooperation, strategy and surge funding.
  • The EU and most of the rest of the European market for homeland security and public safety products are served by local companies. Even with a preference for locally manufactured products, foreign products can usually strongly compete on the basis of cost-performance. They do not encounter any EU direct trade barriers or quotas. Non-tariff, indirect trade barriers may be the approval process of dual use goods, which include many security market products
