All major sectors in India are expanding obligating security cover. The major initiatives of the Modi Administration such as ‘Digital India’, ‘Make in India’, ‘City Surveillance’, ‘Smart Cities’ and ‘Demonetization’ have thrown open a flood gate of opportunities for the security industry in India. India’s security market has topped Rs 6800 crore or USD 1 billion this year. The growth is pretty good this year. Increase in militancy, rising crimes, growing economy and falling prices of security devise have accelerated the security industry’s growth rate in India. Globally the increase in terrorism has compelled all people and companies to be more security conscious. More and more latest security devices are installed even in public places in Europe to protect people and prevent loss or damage to properties. As such the security spending world-wide has been on the rise and nobody wants to take a chance.”

Safe Cities: IFSEC India’s advocacy for Industry

10th edition of South Asia’s largest Security event by UBM India

300 Companies, 20+ Countries showcases Smart Security for Emerging India

As part of the world’s leading portfolio of security and fire safety events, the International Fire & Security Exhibition and Conference (IFSEC) India, expo hosted by UBM India, is back once again with its 10th edition of the expo scheduled from 8th – 10th December 2016 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. Supported by APSA and ESAI, the expo is the region’s pre-eminent authority on the expertise and guidance of industrial security.

Today, cities across the world are constantly evolving faster than at any point in history. They have become more congested, and criminal activities have soared up, leading to the destruction of public assets. Compounding the problems, terrorism has become a major concern that presents communities and neighbourhoods with new security problems. Faced with a wealth of often elusive challenges, cities are expected to manage and control the change to allow their communities to have a standard of living that meets modern-day expectations.



In the age of smart technology and to match the pace of smart cities, the need for smart security is of utmost significance. The rising need for advanced security, increasing public surveillance, growing IT infrastructure, increasing IT spends, and surging criminal activities have spurred the market for IP Video Surveillance systems in India. From the earlier Analog CCTV technology, there has been a steady technology shift to Internet Protocol (IP) based (digital), open source and fully integrated systems, with the option for remote surveillance, background screening, video analytics, digital video and sensor-based detection. It has hardly surprising then that the fastest growing end-user industry is projected to be city surveillance.

The growing awareness in the retail and enterprise segment too is giving security solutions a cult status. Under these circumstances, IFSEC India will act as catalysts for the progress and vision of the industry, as we provide a platform for industry players to collectively ideate, innovate, and spot trends like the shift in India’s security paradigm from a preventive approach to a monitoring and response strategy. In its tenth edition, IFSEC is proud to feature technologies pertaining to biometrics, transport, access control, in addition to surveillance, for the knowledge of end users and providers.

Over 300 companies from 20+ countries from the security and fire domain have confirmed participation for the 2016 edition; some of the premier plus partners include Aditya Infotech, Advik, Dahua, ERD Technologies, ESSL, HI-Focus, Hikvision, HANWHA TECHWIN(formerly SAMSUNG TECHWIN), Secureye, Fortune Marketing, Tech smart, Tenda, Hamsa, Uniview, ZKTeco. Our Premier Partners include ACSYS, Axestrack, Blue I, Face ID, Honeywell, Lilin, Mantra, Panasonic, Road point, Sparsh, Starex, Unicam systems, Unique Electrovision and Zebronics.

Speaking on the announcement of IFSEC India 2016, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, “According to industry reports by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham), India, along with Britain, Germany and France is poised to emerge as one of largest player in global Homeland Security (HLS) market by 2020. The demand for video surveillance in India has grown not only in corporate houses but also risen sharply among the RWAs and security agencies as well. The demand for other security systems like Access Control, Biometrics, Alarm Systems, Transport Security, Home Automation, Perimeter Security and Metal Detectors has increased too. The booming demand for these security solutions, falling costs of products & installation coupled with hassle-free installation & portability is making wireless security an instant hit. Against this landscape, IFSEC 2016, South Asia’s largest annual exposition in the security industry, shall showcase some of the finest IP electronic surveillance technologies & architectures to secure our tomorrows.”

“This year, we have also reached an important milestone and achieved a new momentum with the 10th anniversary of our expo which will provide a perfect platform for stakeholders from the security and fire community to come together and address challenges that have acted as speed bumps to this growth.” he further added.

With the increasing focus on Homeland security in India, IFSEC India, this year has decided to proactively decipher relevant insights gained in the global security market by conducting a two day conference with the theme ‘Security strategies to counter external and internal threats’ and ‘Creating a Smarter and Safer World with State-of-the-art Security Technology’ alongside the exhibition. The expo is supported by Assocham & PWC as ‘Conference’ and ‘Knowledge Partners’, respectively.
