The global hardware access control system (HACS) market is expected to register 10% year-on-year growth, to total 2.2. Mn units in 2021. As per Fact.MR, the demand for biometric PACS is expected to grow by 9%, reaching 850,000 units in 2021.

The physical access control system market will occupy 45% of global software access control system (ACS), with sales of ACS reaching US$ 15.3 Bn in 2021. As per the study, nearly 45% of employees across offices have determined Keypad-based access control systems to be pivotal for smart lock and digital security.

The study also states that more than half of organizations have shifted their preference to physical access control systems in 2019. These businesses are likely to upgrade to mobile access control systems over the next three years, steered by ongoing technological advancements.

Due to the increasing need for perimeter security among government and national security bodies, the demand for physical access control through facial recognition is expected to surge. For instance, The Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection of the U.S. claimed that around 40 million candidates have been screened at cruise ships, border crossings, and other places in the last year.

Access control systems also have helped in restricting around 250 people from using fake passports for border crossing. Rising focus on homeland security, besides unlimited benefits of physical access control systems, which include keeping track of entry and exit of members of any organization, will enable exponential growth of the market in the coming years.

On account of this, the global service access control system is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 12.7 Bn, expanding at 10% CAGR during the forecast period of 2021 to 2031.
