Growing urbanisation, coupled with retail boom and increased concerns regarding security of men, money and material has led to the growth of security market in India which is expected to reach INR 80,000 crores by the year 2020, growing at a CAGR of 20%. This growth is fuelled by creation of additional infrastructure like industrial complexes, public infrastructure, residential complexes and the humungous opportunity presented by government initiatives like ‘Smart Cities’ and ‘Make in India’.
As safety is now becoming a part of the work culture, organisations are becoming more and more conscious about the occupational safety and health of the workers. The Government is also playing a critical role not only in supporting the industries by initiating various compliances but also making sure that the organisations implement the policies introduced on timely basis.
