DUBLIN, November 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/j4p3pn/energy_security) has announced the addition of the "Energy Security Market - Power Plants, Technologies & Professional Services Analysis to 2018" report to their offering.
The total energy security market is expected to grow from $ 49.27 billion in 2013 to $ 67.90 billion by 2018, at an estimated Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.6 % from 2013 to 2018.
This report gives detailed insights into the global energy security market split across various regions, type of power plants, type of security and type of professional services. While the power plants include nuclear power plants, hydro and thermal power plants, oil and gas and renewable energy power plants; type of security includes physical security and network security; type of professional services include risk management services, system design and consulting, compliance, policy and procedure consulting and audit and reporting services. The report also emphasizes key adoption trends, future opportunities and business cases in this innovative market.
The research predicts an increasing adoption of energy security solutions, as major vendors are aggressively investing and rigorously working towards providing sophisticated physical as well as network security solutions in an effort to provide efficient security to the power plants and energy resources.
Energy security is the ability of the nation or a country to secure their power plants and energy resources from physical attacks and cyber intrusions to allow uninterrupted and sustained supply of energy to the country and its people. Securing energy and power resources is vital and countries are taking firm measures to protect their resources. This need for securing power plants has increased due to growing terror and criminal attacks and growing sophisticated cyber attacks. These power plants play an important role in any of the countries development and are considered to be the backbone of the nation and any attack on these power plants can paralyze crucial development.
Alongside the risk of outside attacks, there are threats of insider attacks and lack of a comprehensive solution for securing the power plants. Many countries have made strict regulations for energy security. There are international bodies for regulating and standardizing such conditions. The issues of increased attacks, strict government regulations and government rules have given rise to the overall energy security market. There are companies which provide sophisticated physical security solutions which includes unmanned aerial vehicles and highly sophisticated intrusion detection and prevention system. Many companies also provide network security and cyber security solutions for preventing the complicated cyber attacks, thus securing the overall power plants from these attacks and keep the operations uninterrupted.
