The UK access control market is set to grow by an estimate of 7.3% between 2013 and 2017, the latest "Access Control Market Report 2013" from Research and Markets has recently revealed.

The report focuses on the UK market for physical access control, which is primarily concerned with the restriction of a particular room, structure or site to authorised personnel only, allowing users to restrict or grant access, monitor throughput, and report unauthorised access attempts in certain areas.

The types of products covered by this report include audio and video entryphones, keypad systems, biometric systems, and card- or token-based access control systems. Within card- or token-based access control systems there is a range of technology solutions available, including magnetic-stripe cards, Weigand cards, barcode cards, proximity systems, long-range/hands-free systems, vehicle access control systems, smart cards and dual-function cards.

The report estimates that, between 2008 and 2012, this specific market segment dropped by 5.9%, due mostly to sluggish economic growth, low business investment levels, and the struggling construction sector.

Nevertheless, the paper’s authors predict that there will be an ongoing need for protection against crime, which, in turn, will ensure continued growth in the UK access control market. However, sluggish recovery of the UK economy and the housing market will slow market growth.

Access Control UK employs a variety of access control technologies in order to create advanced solutions, enable users to exert solid, reliable and accurate control over the access to specific premises or zones.
