The United Kingdom is a mixed bag of homeland security market opportunities, with some threat domains still offering both cutting-edge and developed technologies & systems, while others offer practically nothing. With the market remaining accessible to market participants from outside the country, the U.K. is still a hotbed of market activity in specific sectors and is expected to remain so for the foreseeable future.
But the key to market success is knowing which threat domain to focus on. "The increasing terrorist threat perception in the United Kingdom has clearly influenced the government mindset when it comes to enhancing counter-terror policies. Many factors are driving the market forward, despite undefined budgets, to reach some ￡6.7 billion. The industry is facing quite a challenge here, as it must work within the constraints of low budgets, yet at the same time supply sophisticated systems meeting very high standards," according to Homeland Security Analyst Marie-France Mann of Frost & Sullivan.
