Security Applications and Wireless M2M - 5th Edition: 4.3 Million Small Business and Home Alarm Systems Will Be Connected To European Cellular Networks In 2016

Dec 18, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Berg Insight AB's new report "Security Applications and Wireless M2M - 5th Edition" to their offering.

According to a new research report from the analyst firm Berg Insight, shipments of wireless M2M modules for security applications in EU27 2 is forecasted to grow from 2.9 million in 2011 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 47.1 percent to reach 20.0 million in 2016. At the same time, the number of tracking devices and wireless alarm systems monitored from an alarm receiving centre and similar will grow from 9.1 million in 2011 to 39.7 million by the end of 2016. Adoption of cellular connectivity is increasing in the intrusion alarm systems industry. Berg Insight estimates there will be 4.3 million alarm systems connected to cellular networks in Europe by 2016. Insurance companies encourage the use of dual fixed line and wireless signalling solutions in monitored alarms. By adding a secondary wireless link, communication becomes more reliable and cannot easily be disrupted.

The market for intrusion alarm systems will continue to grow for many years to come. The penetration of monitored alarm systems has only reached about 3 percent of all businesses and households in Europe, says Andr Malm, Senior Analyst at Berg Insight. He adds that only about 2 percent of all households in Europe have a monitored alarm system. The economic climate will however have a major effect on near-term growth in major markets such as Spain and the UK as fewer households are willing to make investments.

The main markets in terms of units and value are tracking of passenger cars and commercial vehicles. In many countries, owners of luxury cars often need to install tracking systems when applying for an insurance policy. The proposed European eCall initiative imposing that all new cars sold in the EU from 2015 be fitted with an automatic emergency call system is likely to also drive adoption of stolen vehicle tracking services. In addition, there are many emerging niche markets for tracking systems such as construction equipment, leisure vehicles and boats.
