About Mass Transit Security Systems
Mass transit security systems refer to the security systems used in mass transit locations to detect, monitor, and scan travelers and their belongings. Road, rail, air, and sea transportation systems are designed for easy accessibility and convenience of travelers. Due to the growing number of crime and terror attacks on mass transit systems, governments have taken qualitative measures to improve and enhance safety measures. Many people take public transport and their safety and security are of high importance. Attacks, such as 9/11 and the Mumbai terror attacks of 2008, have compelled governments to provide comprehensive solutions to protect infrastructure and safeguard people.
One trend in the market is introduction of biometrics. Airports, sea ports, railway stations, and bus stations are enforcing the use of biometric access control for enhanced safety measures. The electronic access control system is integrated with biometric technologies, such as iris recognition and voice recognition, to monitor people and control their access to secure locations of premises. Biometric access control has emerged as a reliable security solution to prevent unauthorized access in a building or organization. For instance, the 2018 FIFA World Cup, scheduled to be held in Russia will increase the demand for biometric access control. Such events require advanced security systems to prevent terrorist and security attacks. Biometric access control systems are being implemented for cross-border activities at airports and sea ports. A number of immigration counters have integrated fingerprint recognition technology with access control systems, which will enhance passenger verification and perform background checks on individuals that enhance the security at airports. For instance, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, Indonesia has made it mandatory for passengers to provide their passport along with a fingerprint scan.

According to the report, one driver in the market is investment in infrastructure development. Governments across the EU have invested in the development of their national infrastructure. The development of multilane highways and ultra-modern airports has ensured the rapid growth of access control installations and traffic surveillance systems. The growing number of airports increases the security threats, which drives the installation of security systems for proper and safe functioning. Increased business operations between countries through ports need secure communications and cargo scanning systems. Therefore, the overall development of the infrastructure has contributed to the growth of the mass transit security.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of operation. The mass transit security systems market necessitates high initial investment. End-users also need to bear the additional costs related to the frequent replacement and upgrade of video surveillance equipment, software, and access control systems. The need for skilled professionals to maintain the access control systems has also increased with the introduction of video surveillance technologies and access control systems in the market. Lack of these skilled professionals and experts can cost a huge amount of money to the end-users. The training cost for the employees and hiring cost of the experts are high for these technologies that add to the total cost of operation of security solutions.
