Discover which countries and cities have the highest potential to adopt Safe City projects.
For the purposes of this report, IHS Markit defines a Safe City as a security concept that integrates critical security information from a range of sources onto a consolidated IT platform. A Safe City often promotes interoperability between law enforcement, traffic and other agencies by taking a multiagency approach to emergency response.
The Safe City Report from IHS Markit is the third edition of our studies on the global Safe City market. Over 200 countries and 1,500 cities have been assessed using various indicators from the IHS Markit Economics and Country Risk team to provide perspective on the markets with the highest safe city potential.
Although the market is still relatively new, it is growing rapidly as cities go beyond just deploying video surveillance infrastructure. With the emergence of sensors, analytics and more advanced security concepts, the ability to achieve complete situational awareness has reached new levels, and many cities seek to benefit from this.
The report provides insights into the developing safe city concept and its opportunities for technology vendors, systems integrators and consultancies. Additionally, it examines safe city architecture and requirements as well as successful use cases on a regional basis.
