INTRODUCTION TO ELECTRONICS SECURITY INDUSTRY The security industry has definitely seen a lift in the market with the recent surge in the criminal activities & terrorist attacks in many parts of the nation. With a range of products now available in the market, only few have found a place in their segment. Industry experts find that CCTVs are now highly popular, when it comes to public & premise security. Camera surveillance is now playing a deeper role in guarding & maintaining law & order all over. It is seen that CCTV market has left other security devices far behind, in terms of demand & popularity. From the industry point of view, the Indian electronics security market valued around Rs. 1600 crores in 2008 and CCTV accounted for more than a third of this market. Moreover, the government/public sector demand remains high for overall security systems followed by industrial and commercial sector. Although the market is looking green, competition from foreign players has set the alarms rising among the Indian think tanks. Indian electronic security market still remains largely unorganized and is being constantly flooded with inferior security products from Taiwan, China and other Southeast Asian countries. Low range pricing of these products in a price sensitive market gives them a clear edge when compared to the products sold by Indian players.

Importance of CCTV
People often take their security for granted. They lock their doors, they close the blinds, and then they are safe. Unfortunately, that is just not the case. As the crime rates soar, it is becoming more obvious than ever that safety is something that must be protected. Many people look into purchasing a CCTV camera to keep their families safe. There are many things that go into selecting the right kind of equipment. Since safety is the goal, the purchase cannot be taken lightly. When purchasing a product for safety, consumers must know what kind of technology is used for the CCTV camera. A piece of equipment that is cheaply made with poor technology will not be good for protection. It is important that a product uses the best technology that the industry has to offer so it can offer the best protection available. While quality is important, technical support is as well. Unless the buyer is a genius when it comes to electronics, he may want to look into the kind of support a company offers before paying for a product. After all, someone needs to install it and set it up. While it may seem easy, having someone to help install a CCTV camera would be helpful. If anything, it would give the customer someone to fall back on if it ended up being more difficult than expected.

Lastly, consumers need to consider the inventory of a company. If the company only has a few products to choose from, customers might not actually get what they want. They may settle just in order to complete the purchase. In matters of security, customers should never settle. Instead, they should browse through an extensive inventory and find the product that suits their needs the best. It should be a choice. A customer should have many options to go through before making a decision.

Dynamics of the Indian security equipment industry


Estimated at USD 350 million, the security systems sector in India can broadly be divided into five categories. The largest amongst these is the CCTV segment, commanding some 55 % of the entire market. With the high-success rate of CCTV surveillance devices worldwide, security conscious organizations (both government and non-government) in India are setting aside budgets for implementing CCTV surveillance, reflecting an annual expected growth rate of around 45 percent. The market of fixed Dome type cameras is nearly 4 times that of Box type cameras. Acceptance of Speed Dome cameras is fast increasing as costs get reduced. The security industry needs to ensure growth by strictly following some quality certifications. Formulation of standards for devices, & due certification of suppliers and installers as per their performance and professionalism can stabilize the condition in future.

For Instance: Reality shows like Big Boss can be of great help as their main focus is around crisp footage. Roadies, DID, KBC are other such reality shows to name a few.

TRADE JOURNALS: A technical or trade journal is a publication that is targeted to people in a very specific industry. For people outside the industry, such a journal can seem boring or incomprehensible, while people in the industry use it to keep up on developments in the industry, connect with potential employers, and network with suppliers. Most industries have trade journals, with publications that cover huge industries like biotechnology to much smaller and specialized industries such as landscape architecture. some industries also publish peer reviewed journals, which are collections of original research that has been evaluated by an independent panel of experts. The sciences boast a huge number of peer reviewed journals, allowing researchers to share their work with other people in the community and to solicit criticism. Sometimes the line between a trade and a peer reviewed journal may be slim, with some peer reviewed publications having a high percentage of advertising.

When researching a trade or industry, a trade journal can sometimes be a useful starting point, especially if the researcher has a glossary of trade terms handy. People who keep an eye on various industries often subscribe to these journals so that they are alerted to developments in the field; for example, researchers who study food politics and the food supply are often interested to learn about new preservation methods, food hybrids, or innovative approaches to marketing campaigns. Because a trade journal is so specialized, such journals are usually not readily available at bookstores, newsstands, and other places that the average person might turn to for printed media. The best source is often the publisher or a professional association that caters to members of the industry. Some publishers will send out issues for free to people in the industry, or journalists who request them, and a subscription is often included with membership in a professional organization. Trade journals such as auotocar are restricted to the automobile industry similarly trade journals like electronics for you confines itself only to the electronics industry which can be a good medium for promotions.
