Border Security Market Analysis

The border security market is anticipated to grow from USD 35.25 billion in 2022 to USD 66.68 billion in 2028, registering a CAGR of 10.49% during the forecast period.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a severe impact on the global economy. However, defense spending in 2020 registered growth compared to 2019. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent shutdowns affected the defense manufacturing sector and the pace of military R&D activities in several countries. The negative impacts of the pandemic were visible in the global defense supply chains, as several programs rely upon a unique global network of part suppliers.

The rising geopolitical instabilities and territorial conflicts are driving the demand for advanced border security solutions, worldwide. Moreover, the increasing procurement of surveillance aircraft, patrol aircraft, ground attack helicopters, transport helicopters, amphibious aircraft, marine vessels, and submarines for border security is expected to drive the growth of the border security market, during the forecast period. Additionally, the modernization of the existing border security infrastructure is providing new market opportunities for the border security market.

Border Security Market Trends

The Sea segment to Experience Major Growth

The sea segment under the platform segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. Maritime security requires appropriate border control measures along maritime border crossing points to help States better deal with transnational organized crime including piracy, terrorism, migrant smuggling, trafficking in persons, and arms proliferation. Despite clearly defined boundaries, maritime disputes are common in places where countries compete over inhabited and uninhabited islands. Many military superpowers, such as the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China, and Japan, have borders surrounded mostly by seas. There are many disputes in the South China Sea among China, Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Malaysia, which have overlapping claims.

In the wake of all these issues, countries are increasing their respective military expenditure in order to prioritize their focus more on protecting their sea-based borders. With increasing threats over international waters, countries are focusing on developing their surveillance over the sea, which is expected to drive the sea-based platforms, to register the highest growth in the market, during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Dominates the Border Security Market

Asia-Pacific is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. This is primarily due to ongoing border issues between India - Pakistan, India - China, and China-Japan, among others. China is one of the largest countries in Asia that has territorial issues with Taiwan, India, North Korea, Malaysia, South Korea, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, and Vietnam.

In addition, governments in Asia-Pacific are taking major steps to secure their borders. For instance, in February 2023 India's defense budget for FY 2022-23 had a special focus on maritime security and border infrastructure development. The Ministry of Defence was allocated a total budget of USD 70.23 billion, which is 13.31% of the total union budget. The capital allocations for modernization and infrastructure development of armed forces have been increased to USD 20.33 billion, an increase of 12.82% over FY 2021-22. The capital budget has risen 47.37% since 2019-20, after clashes with both Pakistan and China. On the contrary, in October 2021, China passed the Land Border Law to strengthen its border security amid tensions with India after the violent clash between the Armies of India and China in Galwan Valley.

Increasing efforts by governments to secure their borders amid disputes with enemy countries are driving the market in Asia-Pacific.

Border Security Industry Overview

The market is fragmented as there are several players who cater their products to the end users. However, global defense systems and technology providers, like Raytheon Technologies Corporation, General Dynamics Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Elbit Systems Ltd., and THALES are expected to be market leaders. Many of the geographic regions have local players who are equally strong and provide smaller sub-systems of a larger network/project, in partnership with the global leaders. Local players in North America and the Middle East and Africa are particularly threatening the global leaders, as they aim to provide an all-around solution at a fraction of the cost quoted by these global leaders, without compromising on quality or reliability.
