The Middle East homeland security market

The homeland security industry across the globe is growing faster than ever before.

The Middle East homeland security market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 18.7 percent, and hit USD 34 billion per year by 2020 (Frost & Sullivan). This growth is driven primarily by the economic diversification and regional mega-events (the Dubai Expo 2020 or the FIFA World Cup 2022) which boost infrastructure investments. These regional mega-events are driving infrastructure investment which must be protected.

New solutions and advanced security systems are required to face the ever-changing threats, to enhance homeland security, to minimize the possibility of disasters and to improve emergency response rates.

Business in Qatar

Qatar is a strategic crossroads between Asia and the Near East, located in the heart of the Middle East. The country is the ideal location to hold an international event dedicated to homeland security:

  • Qatar is the most secure country in the Middle East and is ranking 16th globally (Global Peace Index 2020).
  • Qatar had a GDP (PPP) per capita of USD 127 billion in 2018 and benefit from a strong population growth.
  • ¾ of visitors come to Qatar for business tourism.
  • Qatar is massively investing in large infrastructure projects and industrial programmes.
