Sporting events are highly susceptible to security breaches and terror attacks. A significant contributing factor is the emotional state of crowds, wherein, sometimes these emotions can lead to destructive behavior and create chaos and vandalism of properties in the stadium. Stadium security provides a very big market opportunity for security system manufacturers and integrators. Large-scale events are further susceptive to security threats considering the large crowd present in an enclosed stadium. During the recent years, stadium security market has gained significant growth momentum due to stadiums emerging as potential targets for terrorist attacks. Terrorism is a serious threat while managing sporting or other events at stadiums which have large attendance of audiences and celebrities. The continuous advancements of technology in security systems such as HD cameras, IP video surveillance and biometrics have added to the growth in adoption of security systems in stadiums to manage vital events.
