16 Oct Middle East security, safety, and fire protection industries in sharp focus as countdown begins for Intersec 2019
The Middle East fire safety systems and equipment market is predicted to increase by eight percent annually, to a value of US$3 billion in 2024, from an estimated US$1.9 billion in 2018, according to 6WResearch. The report also has good news for the markets for cyber security (from US$1.4 billion in 2018 to US$2.7 billion in 2024), smart home (US$344 million to US$869 million), and drones (US$507 million to US$2.4 billion), which are also set to achieve solid double-digit annual growth.
This all sets the scene for three days of busy networking and knowledge-sharing at Intersec 2019, which returns with the key support of long-standing Government partners such as the Dubai Police, Dubai Civil Defence, Dubai Police Academy, Dubai Municipality, and the Security Industry Regulatory Agency (SIRA).
The annual three-day event, organised by Messe Frankfurt Middle East, covers the seven sections of Commercial Security; Fire & Rescue; Perimeter & Physical Security; Safety & Health; Homeland Security & Policing; Information Security; and Smart Home & Building Automation.
Major General Rashid Al Matroshi, the Head of Dubai Civil Defense, said the UAE’s leading role in adopting the latest international standards and technologies has become a milestone in the world today: “In the field of security and safety, the UAE and its wise leadership spare no effort to introduce the latest security technologies to ensure the safety and well-being of its citizens, residents and visitors,” said Al Matroshi.
“Intersec, therefore, has become a global leader in the security, safety and fire prevention sector in the region, and its leading role in bringing together the world’s pioneering manufacturers and experts as well as enhancing regional safety and security.”
Fire & Rescue is the second largest section at Intersec 2019, with more than 400 exhibitors expected, followed by Safety & Health (150 exhibitors) Homeland Security & Policing (100 exhibitors); Perimeter and Physical Security (100 exhibitors), and Information Security (50 exhibitors).
Returning popular features in 2019 include the Drone Zone, an Outdoor Demo Area, a Smart Home Pavilion and the Safety Design in Buildings Pavilion. More than 150 exhibitors will be participating for the first time, while Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Korea, Pakistan, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, UK, and the USA comprise the 15 country pavilions.
Intersec 2019 is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
