The health and viability of the electronic security industry is measured each year through SDM’s Industry Forecast Study, conducted annually since 1981. Through the Industry Forecast Study, which samples SDM’s subscriber base of installing security dealers and systems integrators, we get a depiction of the strength of the industry as measured by revenue increases and decreases, expected growth for the coming year, pricing trends for systems and services such as monitoring, and challenges that installing companies face.
The study’s results are presented annually in the January print edition of SDM and on the website. More comprehensive results of the SDM Industry Forecast Study are available in a report. The cost of the report is $4999. To order visit the SDM store or contact Heidi Fusaro at 630-518-5470 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
