Threat Detection Technology is Creating a $163.4 Billion Market Opportunity

November 09, 2020 -

There’s a groundswell of interest for threat detection technology. All with millions of us forced to be on guard at all times with civil unrest in the streets of America, constant threats of terror, fears of the pandemic. Yet, many of us are greatly unaware of the threats all around us. Plus, consider this. Nearly 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, says Source Security. According to estimates from the UN, this number is expected to increase to 68% by 2050. As urban areas become more densely populated, the ability of law enforcement to uphold law and order becomes ever more critical to public security. It’s a challenge that must be constantly reviewed, and issues addressed where needed.” The threat is so severe it could create a $163.4 billion market opportunity by 2025, creating opportunity for companies like Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX:PAT)(OTCQX:PTOTF), Everbridge Inc. (NASDAQ:EVBG), Shotspotter Inc. (NASDAQ:SSTI), Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN), and Leidos Holdings Inc. (NYSE:LDOS).
