Global Security seals Market: Dynamics

Expansion of global transport and logistic market

Rise in global trade is expected to be a major factor boosting the security seals market across the globe. According to International Monetary Fund (IMF), global trade is increasing at 3.8% per year. This is driving the transport and logistics sectors, which in turn boosts the demand for security seals. Security seals are preferred due to their extensive application in transportation and logistics sectors. Their functionality and flexibility is estimated to boost demand further. For instance, the acquisition of U.S.-based logistics company Coyote Logistics by UPS, for US$ 1.8 billion, and the acquisition of France-based forwarder Norbert Dentressangle by XPO Logistics, for US$ 2.8 billion.

Overall growth in diverse applications

The popularity of security seals has been rising in the last few years, owing to their usage in diverse applications. Rapid expansion of transportation, logistics, packaging, e-commerce, and retail industries has fueled the demand for security seals. Moreover, stringent laws enacted by regional and government bodies to conduct secure and safe business practices across diverse businesses are expected to drive the security seals market. Users prefer security seals to provide basic, reliable, and affordable security solution. Possibility of piracy, and theft of good owing to poor security management have driven the global security seals market.

Technological advancement in products

Technological advancements in security seals makes them more cost-effective. Development of stronger and more complex security seals is estimated to boost the security seals market. Furthermore, mixed metals or advanced materials are more difficult to break but make minor tampering attempts evident, which in turn is also driving the seals industry. Barcoding and laser marking of security seals made more advanced security practices possible on a large scale. For instance, in February 2019, Universal (UK) Ltd. introduced the new Snap 'N' Secure product, which can be applied to most standard steel or poly banding.
