SDM Top 100 US Integrators / US Market Weakens

By: John Honovich, Published on Jul 17, 2009

This month, SDM Magazine released their 14th annual Top Systems Integrators list. The list ranks the top 100 integrators based on 2008 revenue. The list includes analysis and statistics on the overall US security market. 

Read the entire 2008 SDM Top 100 Integrator report. Also, review the 2007 SDM release including the 2007 overview and the 2007 Top 100 rankings.

Update 2013: Here is the 2013 SDM Top 100 Integrator rankings. As always be cautious about the accuracy of the numbers presented as these are self submitted, unaudited numbers of private companies.

Security Market Weakening

Compared to 2007, 2008 was significantly weaker. 

In 2007, total revenue for these 100 companies increased 18% and total projects increased 39% compared to 2006. Respondents cited an 'extremely strong" and "robust" business.

In 2008, total revenue fro these 100 companies increased only 1% while total projects declined 13% compared to 2007. Comments included new construction slowing down and budgets being tightened starting in the 4th quarter 2008.

The significant decrease in total projects is a strong sign of problems as total projects are a leading indicator of economic performance. . Moreover, in the first half of 2009, total new US security projects likely shrank further.
