07 Sep 12. Homeland Security Research Corp., the global leader in Homeland Security technology and market research, forecasts in its two latest market research reports China Homeland Security & Public Safety Market – 2012-2020 and U.S. Homeland Security & Public Safety Market – 2013-2020 that by 2014 China is to become the world’s largest national Homeland Security & Public Safety market. The China report reveals that: 2 out of every 3 new airports built in the world are in China. According to China’s “Twelfth 5-Year Plan (2011-2015)”, it spends more on “HLS & Public Security” than it does on defense. China’s government 650 “Safe City” cumulative 2013-2020 market will surpass $180bn. The country’s public transportation system, which is the world’s largest, is poised to undergo a $20bn security upgrade. The U.S. Department of Commerce assists and encourages the export of American Homeland Security & Public Safety products to China. Companies such as FLIR, GE, Honeywell, Panasonic, Samsung, Siemens, Bosch, and EADS are already active in this market. While Chinese manufacturers supply low & mid-end security products, the high end-premium security related technologies are provided by foreign manufacturers contributing to $24.3bn in sales in 2011. For example, China’s Smart Video Surveillance market, the world’s largest and the cornerstone of the “Safe City” and perimeter security markets is dominated by foreign-based corporations, which supply artificial intelligence-based Video Content Analysis systems. According to DanInbar, the report’s lead analyst: “Three decades of dramatic economic growth have bred social tensions, ethnic frictions and domestic terror which led the central government to invest “whatever it takes” to defend the economical-social-political fabric of China. This has resulted in the massive $40bn market in 2011 and $45bn in 2012, a trend which will reach $58bn by 2015 and $105B by 2020. As I speak, China is transforming itself into the global leading source for business opportunities to suppliers of homeland security & public safety products.” The report is the first and only comprehensive analysis of China’s Homeland Security & Public Safety market available today.

11 Sep 12. Research and Markets announced the addition of the “Spain Defence and Security Report Q3 2012” report to their offering. The Spain Defence and Security Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, defence and security associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Spain’s defence and security industry. BMI’s Spain defence and security report examines the countries’ strategic posture, its defence industry and its defence procurement plans. The report examines the overall structure of the Spanish armed forces, their orders of battle and command structures. It analyses the processes of defence reform which have occurred in Spain to reorient its defence posture away from only guarding NATO’s southern flank to becoming an expeditionary force which can intervene in conflicts and crises around the world. In addition, the report examines trends in Spanish defence spending and the defence budget as a whole for the country, in addition to the value of the country’s defence imports and exports. In terms of the report’s key findings, BMI believes that the most serious issue facing the Spanish defence sector at present is balancing the country’s procurement aspirations and its strategic posture with the financial strictures facing the government. The report notes that a number of major procurement programmes are ongoing for new defence equipment in Spain, including the procurement of armored vehicles and combat aircraft. In addition, the report outlines recent changes to the Spanish armed forces order-to-battle to make them more agile in responding to sudden crises. Moreover, the report also notes that Madrid is te
