Global Border Security Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global market size for border security is expected to reach approximately USD 65 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.16% over the forecast period.

Border security serves to safeguard the country and international borders from illegal smuggling and terrorist activities. Illegal drug, weapon, and contraband movement across the border is tackled by border security. Border security systems include lasers, cameras, and radar. Surveillance capabilities, real-time target images, and precise target location capabilities are enhanced by installing border security systems. In addition, border security forces regularly monitor the data to develop enhanced security tactics to offer its citizens a superior level of safety.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global border security market:

COVID-19 has disrupted the global economy and the entire supply chain. Most markets have been affected badly, and overall economies have been damaged. The progress of the border security market is concerned with the currently ongoing pandemic. Countries are diverting their budget toward healthcare and safeguarding their economy. Therefore, the market is expected to decline. But with, the growing conflict, for instance, between India and China forces countries to incorporate advanced border security systems. As the economy recovers, the border security market will gain its growth momentum.


The growth of the global border security market is primarily driven by instability across borders due to rising geopolitical instabilities and territorial struggles.

Military and defense forces readily adopt unmanned defense systems, fuelling the necessity for advanced border security. Furthermore, increasing terrorist threats and geopolitical instabilities are important driving factors in the border security market. In addition, illegal smuggling and immigration activities across borders necessitate the adoption of border security systems. As a result, surveillance aircraft, ground attack helicopters, transport helicopters, patrol aircraft, marine vessels, amphibious aircraft, and submarines for border security are being procured at an increasing rate fuelling the demand for enhanced border security systems over the forecast period.

Modernization of the overall defense systems, including the existing border security technology, is serving the market with tremendous growth opportunities. The trend of autonomous technology is leading to the technological advancement in unmanned systems needing constant surveillance by the rival countries. Governments in developing countries actively invest in developing their overall defense forces, including border security, in avoiding military superpowers' oppression.


The restraining factors prevalent in the market are strict government rules related to border security systems production and the falling defense expenditure by developed countries. Stringent government rules and regulations are a major restraining factor. Vendors are required to follow local and foreign regulations. The result of failing to adhere to the norms are criminal, civil, and administrative liabilities. In addition, developed countries have witnessed a declining government expenditure hindering the market growth.

This report on the global border security market has been segmented and sub-segmented into the following categories.

Border Security Market – By Platform:

  • Ground
  • Aerial
  • Naval

The ground segment held the most significant global border security market share. The segment is expected to retain its dominance in the forecast period with a significant compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Radars, lasers, cameras, and others are mainly included in the ground-based border security systems. To provide enhanced security to its citizens, countries like India and China actively procure advanced security systems assisted by trained personnel. On the other hand, the sea-based segment is likely to project a significant growth rate due to the growing competition in the international waters and overlapping claims.

Border Security Market – By System:

  • Laser
  • Radar
  • Camera
  • Wide Band Wireless Communication
  • Perimeter Intrusion
  • Unmanned Vehicles
  • C2C
  • Biometric Systems
  • Others

The radar segment accounted for the most significant global border security market share in 2021. Biometric systems are likely to project the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the forecast period. The primary purpose of a biometric system is to track illegal activities across the border.

Border Security Market – By Region:

  • North America
  • Latin America
  • Europe
  • Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific

Based on the global border security market share, the recent past was dominated by North America owing to the defense expenditure of the U.S.

Developed countries have been collaborating to establish well-defined borders to avoid conflict with enhanced border security systems for surveillance. The highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is anticipated to be held by the Asia Pacific over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the growing territorial conflict among military superpowers like India and China. Asian countries are heavily investing in the technological advancement of the defense systems and the up-gradation of existing border security systems. The current ongoing border issues in the Asia Pacific region are between India – China, India- Pakistan, and China-Japan. Southern countries are developing systems to bust smuggling routes through detection and interception.

The Middle East and North American local vendors are the primary threat to the global players in the border security market. With similar quality and reliability, local vendors fulfill the needs with a fraction of the cost quoted by the global players.


Raytheon Company, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Thales SA, BAE Systems PLC, Flir Systems, Elbit Systems, Saab AB, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Finmeccanica SPA, Safran, Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd., Rockwell Collins, and Airbus Group SE are a few of the prominent companies operating in the global border security market profiled in this report.

The market is highly fragmented. Global defense systems and technology providers dominate the market. However, local players across the globe are strong enough to compete with global defense systems and technology providers. With global leaders’ partnership, local players supply subsystems of a larger project/network.


  • In 2016, UAE signed a collaboration contract to purchase eight drones made in Italy. The €316 million contract includes the purchase of eight Piaggio P.1HH Hammerhead UAVs.
  • In 2015, Saudi Arabia built a 600-mile-long ‘Great Wall’ TO build a shield against the terrorist organization ISIS. In addition, a state-of-the-art Spexer 2000 radar was installed. The radar could detect pedestrians and helicopters from 17 and 36 kilometers.
