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.
