Vietnam has always been an ever expanding country with development in various sectors that can be seen throughout major cities. With this expansion comes the demand for more and better security and fire safety solutions. Based on a report from Statista, the revenue in the security segment in Vietnam will hit USD 10 million in 2018, with an annual growth rate of 56 percent in the next 4 years, resulting with a market volume of USD 61 million in 2022. In Vietnam, the skyrocketing demand from infrastructure, factory and smart city development is the key to the market performance.
