The homeland security market is expected to record sustained growth throughout the forecast period 2013-2023. Of course, the sheer range and diversity of the homeland security market analysed within this comprehensive report (across 27 national markets and 9 submarkets in each national market) demonstrates significant regional variations, but this should not discount the impressive growth prospects that exist for homeland security spending both in mature and developing markets. Whiledefencespending falls in many developed markets, homeland security spending is expected to record continually impressive growth; the effect of unsecured spaces for public safety, national security, and economic order all combine to ensure that the continued threat will mandate significant spending in order to counter this threat. In other markets, the dual use of homeland security for establishing public order will also lead to sustained spending across a range of submarkets. Visiongain has assessed that global homeland security spending will reach an impressive $249.43bn in 2013.
