Intersec Middle East 2018
Exhibition and conference for security, safety and fire protection
(2018 - Dubai)
The Middle East market for security, safety, and fire protection is on track for double digit growth over the next four years, as regional governments and the private sector look for improved technologies to better protect assets, people, businesses, and borders.
Led by the Gulf nations of Saudi Arabia and the UAE, regional countries are making rapid strides to upgrade infrastructure and secure their countries, with research from analysts Frost & Sullivan (F&S) highlighting the tremendous potential that remains to be unlocked in the region.
An industry white paper published by F&S outlined the latest trends and opportunities in the market, with spending in Middle East commercial, cyber, and homeland security, along with fire protection, and smart home building automation on a steep upward growth curve.
According to F&S, the Middle East commercial security market, which includes intruder alarms, CCTV surveillance, electronic locks, perimeter protection, door alarms, access control and identification systems, is expected to be worth US$10.2 billion by 2020, growing annually by 24 per cent from its US$3.8 billion value in 2015.
Similarly, the region’s homeland security market is forecast to grow annually by 21 per cent up to 2020, with market revenues increasing to US$34.2 billion, driven predominantly by investments in critical infrastructure, major events, and the need to counter perceived threats.
Fire protection also has huge growth potential, with the Middle East’s fire safety market estimated to grow annually by 12.5 per cent from 2012 to 2020. During this period, the market will grow from US$1.6 billion to US$4.2 billion, making it one of the world’s largest fire safety markets.
Intersec is region’s largest and most comprehensive exhibition and conference for security, safety and fire protection in the Middle East. Intersec has played a major role in the last 19 years in reflecting the security industry worldwide. The exhibition and conference combines a strong international profile, with a huge regional impact. Intersec features over 27,000 trade visitors and showcased the latest technologies and apparatus in Commercial Security & Information Security, Aviation, Homeland Security & Policing, Fire & Rescue and Safety & Health.
Epoc Messe Frankfurt, organiser of Intersec 2017, taking place in Dubai from January 22 to 24, has its sights set on reaching a new high in terms of exhibitor numbers – making the event one of the largest and most representative trade platform for security, safety and fire protection in the Middle East. The last edition in January 2016 featured 1,234 exhibitors and welcomed more than 27,303 visitors from 118 countries which made it the largest Intersec of all times.
The continuing growth of Intersec can be attributed to the burgeoning safety and security industry worldwide and the ongoing support of local authorities such as Dubai Police, Dubai Police Academy and UAE Civil Defence. These factors have made Intersec the region’s leading trade exhibition in the security, safety and protection industries and a must attend event for anyone working in these sectors.
Intersec is divided into four sections, namely Fire & Rescue, Safety & Health, Homeland Security & Policing and Commercial & Information Security. The Fire & Rescue section covers products and services within fire prevention & protection, firefighting equipment, emergency alarm & warning systems and rescue equipment. Already confirmed for the next edition include: Tyco Fire, SFFECO, Naffco, Bristol Fire, Underwriter Laboratories, Siemens and Honeywell Fire, to name a few.
The 19th edition of the annual three-day event will feature more than 1,300 exhibitors from 52 countries, while over 31,000 visitors from 128 countries are expected to attend as they seek the latest solutions across seven show sections of Commercial Security, Fire & Rescue, Safety & Health, Homeland Security & Policing, Perimeter & Physical Security, Information Security, and Smart Home & Building Automation.
Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the organiser of Intersec, said: “Middle East organisations and end-users realise the impact of security and fire safety on their overall productivity and bottom lines, while regional governments have always been committed to protecting critical assets and people in the face of perceived threats along with social and commercial interests.
“In this respect, the region has carved out a niche for itself in the global security, safety, and fire protection industries and Intersec, as the leading global trade platform with a pronounced regional focus, remains the natural vehicle for international manufacturers to showcase their wares to regional buyers.
“The coming edition will be even wider in scope and reach and will provide trade visitors a comprehensive look at what’s available to suit their varied needs, whether that be for governments and authorities, or for private sector end-users in aviation, oil & gas, construction, finance, hospitality, logistics, retail or healthcare,” added Pauwels.
With more than 580 exhibitors, Commercial Security is the largest section at Intersec 2017, followed by Fire & Rescue (400 exhibitors), Safety & Health (100 exhibitors), Homeland Security & Policing (100 exhibitors), Information Security, Perimeter & Physical Security and Smart Home & Building Automation (50 exhibitors each).
The show’s strong international flavour will be further enhanced by 14 country pavilions from Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Taiwan, UK, and USA.
The upcoming edition of Intersec will take place in 2018.
