GN Bureau | December 18, 2015



In the age of need for security the 9th International Fire & Security Exhibition and Conference (IFSEC) India Expo 2015, held last week at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, offered a wide range of products.

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 event was supported by the Asian professional security Association (APSA), ASIS International,  British security industry association (BSIA) and Electronic security Association of India (ESAI).

Over 300 companies from 20 different countries participated in the 2015 edition; partners included Aditya, Autocop, Dahua, Enter, Hi-Focus, Hikvision, Lookman, Secureye, Securico, Tech Smart, Uniview and Zebronics.

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.”
