Global Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) Market: Efficacy to Counter Cybercrime Boosts Adoption

Considering that top four companies in the global physical security information management (PSIM) market held 36% of the overall market in 2016, the said market is characteristic of a moderately consolidated vendor landscape. The top two players, namely NEC Corporation and Tyco International hold prominent position in the global market owing to their delivery and service expanse, especially to serve emerging economies such as India, China, and Brazil. Some other key vendors, namely CNL Software Ltd., Mer Inc., Vidsys Inc., Milestone Systems A/S, and Intergraph Corporation hold prominence due to their strong product portfolio.

Howbeit, domestic players hold prominence in local and regional markets making it difficult for large companies to serve these markets. In this scenario, large companies are adopting the inorganic growth route and thus vying to carry out mergers and acquisitions and strategic collaborations with small players to establish their foothold in regional pockets. The acquisition of Brazil-based Arcon Informatica S.A. by NEC Corporation in August 2016 is a case in point.
