Leveraging insights from independent research and key presentations at the Securing New Ground (SNG) conference, Security Megatrends™, an annual Security Industry Association (SIA) publication now in its sixth year, analyzes and forecasts the major trends affecting security industry businesses. The 2022 Security Megatrends report captures a vision of the industry’s future and distills key trends that will impact your organization in the coming year.

Each year, the Security Megatrends publication forecasts 10 essential trends reshaping the industry and provides research and executive perspectives into those trends.

The 32-page report features original research, statistics, summarizations and executive perspectives on the impact of these Megatrends.

2022 Security Megatrends

For the second year in a row in 2022, SIA’s Security Megatrends report found that artificial intelligence (AI) was the predominant trend shaping the security industry, as companies have embraced the technology’s promise through advanced audio analytics, complex facial recognition, cutting-edge video surveillance scene processing and robotics and drones.

The Security Megatrends report covers technology trends like AI and cybersecurity but also addresses supply chain assurance and newer trends like increased interoperability, data privacy and health and sustainability that are actively reshaping the security industry. In short, Security Megatrends is no longer a pure business and technology trends report, but a report that balances those trends with the concerns of consumers and the general public.
