The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Access Control Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global access control market size reached a value of US$ 8.5 Billion in 2021. Access control refers to a keyless entry and card access system that helps in easily managing building security. It restricts unauthorized entities from entering or accessing the facility, campus, card, and sensitive data like network, file, username, and password, thereby enhancing the security. Access control is one of the fundamental parts of the enterprise security department, which helps in protecting the perimeter and high-level data and assets. It provides proper access to employees and members and enables them to enter the right building or office without any concern of security breach. It also validates personal identity documents, verifies the authenticity of websites with a digital certificate, and keeps a check on login credentials against stored data. As a result, access control finds widespread applications in various industries such as commercial, military and defense, government, manufacturing, industrial, and transportation.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
