This is the third edition of an IHS Markit study on the Safe City market. IHS Markit defines ‘Safe City’ as a security concept that integrates critical security information from a range of sources onto a consolidated IT platform. Safe City often promotes interoperability between law enforcement, traffic and other agencies by taking a multiagency approach to emergency response.
Although the market is still relatively new, it is growing rapidly as cities go beyond just deploying video surveillance infrastructure. With the emergence of sensors, analytics and more advanced security concepts, the ability to achieve complete situational awareness has reached new levels, and cities seek to benefit from this.
The report provides global insight into the developing safe city concept and its opportunities for technology vendors, systems integrators and consultancies. Additionally, it examines safe city architecture and requirements as well as successful use cases on a regional basis. Over 200 countries and 1,500 cities have been assessed using various indicators from the IHS Markit Economics and Country Risk team to provide perspective on the markets with the highest safe city potential.
