Statistics of the EU Security Industry

Security and Investigation Services
Statistics …hmm? Boring! Not at all, the contrary is true. It can be fun learning, interpreting and drawing conclusions for the future, also to forecast. What about learning from the past, when we are entering in a disruptive period as we do now? Things will not be as they have been in the past. 

Change is evident in our Security Industry where digitalization is on its way and fast. The latest report from NACE rev 2, from October 28. 2016, is a bit outdated in a faster changing sectorial environment. Never the less, we could read some interesting facts out of the statistics. 

We do not want to interpret the entire report, but we want to tease you to cross read through it and make findings of your own. Those who understand the past can apply them to the future. Using the past to predict the future is useful in all sectors and fields of activity and in all times, even disruptive ones. Ignoring the history will make you a lousy forecaster. To help, you might also be interested in reading Super Forecaster from Philippe Tetlock and Dan Gardner 

Back to our statistical report from the EU / Nace Rev 2 Division 80. Statistics explained.
Let's compare countries; sharing all persons employed versus the share of value added. Value added in this definition is productivity by the employee. 

As an example, the UK recorded the highest share of value added in the private security service sector. Already in 2012, France scored best in security system service activities, and Italy best in investigation activities. Now, think again about what value-added means with digitalization embedded into it. We will not continue on our behalf but leave it up to you. Probably your mind is already bubbling with ideas going forward.
