Italian Security Leaders, Top 25: a survey by a & s Italy and KF Economics previewed at SICUREZZA
MONZA / REGGIO EMILIA – The a & s Italy magazine, leader in technical publishing for the security sector, in collaboration with KF Economics of the K Finance Group, an important Italian company that carries out financial market analyzes, M&A and credit management, have drawn up the first “Top 25” of the protagonists of the Italian security market.
The survey shows, for the first time from a journalistic point of view, a picture of the performance of the players who dominate the Italian security market, providing particularly important indices to frame the state of health and trends that govern the sector.
Although it is characterized by important performances and an interesting resilience to the crisis, the Italian security sector has never been the subject of particular attention by the main market analysts.
The magazine a & s Italy, the undisputed leader in the technical press of the sector, has so far made up for this gap through the publication of surveys and reports, but this year it has chosen to make a qualitative leap. In the wake of a consolidated tradition in group publishing policy with the annual publication of the Security Top 50, dedicated to global leaders, a & s Italy has decided to draw up its own “Hit” of the players who dominate the Italian security market.
A complex and delicate job, which required reading the sector in partnership with an accredited company in the field of financial market analysis, M&A and credit management: “For this we relied on KF Economics (K Finance Group), a partner of absolute authority with which we share values, vision and strategies ”- declares Andrea Sandrolini, CEO of Ethos Media Group – publisher of a & s Italy.
The result of this partnership is a penetrating analysis of the reference market, full of ideas and reflections. It is called Italian Security Leaders, Top 25 and examines the financial results of the companies in the operational macro-areas that make up the Italian security supply chain (producers, distributors and system integrators), without neglecting the peculiarities of the sector, such as the mixture of producers / distributors or the presence of multinationals where security is only a business unit.
The first objective of the survey: to give a perimeter to the Italian security industry by skimming everything that goes beyond security or serves as a mere technological or commercial offer. A high-risk job, but which for the first time aims to measure the performance and profitability of a sector that is difficult to classify, with the aim of evaluating costs and revenues, employment stability, ratings, trends and consolidations.
The awareness of the peculiarities of the Italian security market compared to other supply chain systems – Italian and foreign – required delicate field choices and a heavy assumption of responsibility on the part of the analyst: “Working with a magazine of the caliber of a & s Italy it has allowed us to move with confidence within an extremely dynamic and constantly evolving sector, and also for this reason of particular analytical-computational complexity ”- declares Paolo Lasagni, CEO of KF Economics.
The result was a survey that shows, for the first time in a journalistic key, a picture of the performance of the leaders who dominate the Italian security market, providing particularly important indices to frame the state of health and the trends that govern the sector.
