Research and Markets: Analysis of the Global Utilities Infrastructure Security Market 2014

“The increasing global appetite for energy is driving investment in the utilities infrastructure security market. Critical infrastructure is expensive and involves high-value construction projects. However, costs differ widely between regions and depend significantly upon risk. Also, the cost of securing these sites varies depending on threat perceptions and budgets. Fossil-fuel power generation will remain the focus of most utility operators’ spending, but securing renewable energy technology is growing area of interest with significant capability gaps. For water operators, securing key stages of the production cycle is critical to mitigating major risks such as contamination where chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNe) agents are of most concern.”
