Secutech is particularly renowned for its decisive response towards market change. In 2016, the show organiser further broadened the fair’s product profile in response to the burgeoning demands for total solutions for the smart home, energy management, info security and fire & safety sectors that bring higher cost effectiveness. It was concluded a success by attracting 24,346 trade visitors of OEMs, ODMs, system integrators and buyers from 85 countries and regions.
An insider’s look at the recent industry development is provided by Ms Regina Tsai, the Deputy General Manager of the show organiser. She said: “There have been a number of mergers and acquisitions taking place since 2015. These new strategic partnerships often involve multinational firms which intend to enter new markets geographically, or extend and better the existing product variety. In particular, there is a huge demand for surveillance systems to be applied in various areas, such as access control, audio, building automation, fire, intrusion and IT. Suppliers of the best solutions and software that allows assured compatibility and seamless integration are getting more attention and opportunities in the market.”
Supported by a programme of research with participants of the previous show, Ms Tsai expected that the security industry will continue to be dominated by three key ideas: IoT, big data and cloud. She explained: “The majority of our buyers expressed their interest in these technologies that can evolve the existing standard and traditional security devices. To maintain their competitive edges in the market, they are looking to develop the next generation Video Content Analysis (VCA), AI, machine learning, multi-sensor camera, cloud-based systems, security robots and drone detections, which help them stand out in the crowd.”
As such, in addition to the extensive display of the latest security products and solutions, Secutech 2017 will retain its focus on the applications and smart devices in a diversity of vertical markets, ranging from transportation and industrial use to retail and building & home. A number of dedicated zones will be established to offer demonstrations of other key security technologies. They include the Software Innovation Zone, the 3D Intelligent Video Analytics Show Room and the UHD Intelligent Surveillance Performance Award. “Like always, we strive to provide the most effective platform to complement the changing industry dynamics and facilitate collaboration and partnerships which will bring their businesses to the next level,” Ms Tsai added.
