Saudi Arabia Predicted to be the World’s Second Largest Homeland Security Market

With homeland security and defence markets unlike any other in the world, Saudi Arabia is one of the only countries, whose survival is threatened by terrorism resulting from both internal (Al Qaeda and the Shia minority) and external (the threat of a nuclear Iran, an annual Hajj pilgrimage of millions, the security of 24% of the world’s oil reserves threats) forces.

Forecasted to become the world’s second largest homeland security market with growth of $15.4 billion by 2018 from $7.8 billion in 2011, Saudi Arabia stands out as a country that will continue to invest resources to build a formidable homeland security and defence infrastructure.

The country actively spends its resources on state of the art technologies and services, creating business opportunities in major projects and sectors such as the Saudi‐Iraqi border fence, Saudi‐Yemen border fence, Hajj annual pilgrimage, oil industry and the private sector.
