Business Opportunities For East Africa
Especially the countries Kenya and Tanzania, which had a continuous economic growth of more than 4 percent during the last ten years, offer significant business opportunities in the civil security sector.
It is expected that the market for civil security technologies in Kenya and Tanzania will continuously grow in the future. Industrial growth and the increase of urbanization in both countries open up additional market potentials for the use of security technologies. Both in the commercial and public sectors the demand for high-tech video and alarm systems, electronic access control and specialty equipment especially will be on a high level. In addition, the threat of terrorist attacks plays a significant role. Fields of application of electronic security technology are strategically important facilities, such as airports, railway stations or other urban infrastructure. Recent events such as the attack on the Westgate Shopping Center in Nairobi in September 2013 reinforce the need for improved safety technology in Kenya and the region.
