Huge security business opportunities in Thailand
Thailand's GDP grew by 12 percent in the first quarter of 2010 which is a 15-year record high. With a well-developed infrastructure, free-enterprise economy, pro-investment policies and strong export industries, foreign direct investment has also expanded by over 140 percent to THB 53 billion (USD 1.56 billion) year on year, reflecting continued confidence in Thailand.
According to industry experts, Thailand is by far one of the biggest security and safety markets in the ASEAN region. The Thai government's overall annual spending in security is estimated to be USD 70 million, and is expected to grow between 5 and 10 percent over the next few years.
In addition, Thailand's vast infrastructure investment is prompting a high local demand for security solutions. For example, the government will invest THB 1.43 trillion (USD 42.2 billion) in the three-year Stronger Thai stimulus project focusing primarily on infrastructure.
According to the A&S Asia magazine, the sales of IP-based systems and analog in Thailand increased by 20 percent and 15 percent respectively in 2009 and it is expected to grow steadily. The security electronics market including video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection and perimeter fencing is estimated to reach up to THB 9.5 trillion (USD 280 million) in 2010.
