Inaugurating the event, Delhi’s deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia acknowledged the awareness being raised the expo.

“We need better security systems this is somewhat mandatory in the current scenario. This kind of shows gives us to choose from a wide spectrum under one roof. I surely could sense that there is interesting equipments displayed that could be seriously considered for home security and public safety net,” said Sisodia.

Analysts are of the opinion that the rise in terrorist activities, growing crime rates, data thefts, remote monitoring, growth of public infrastructure, increasing IT spending, government initiatives and increasing security spending are all boosting markets for surveillance systems in India.

Speaking on the launch, Yogesh Mudras, managing director, UBM India said, “In today's Indian landscape, security and surveillance requires rapid augmentation.”

The IT security market has matured with more players improving their security posture as well as more buyers across the private and government sector investing in digital security systems.”
