Growth / Expansion overview

Growth: IBIS World Reports says the industry should grow at 1.4% over the next 5 years and I think that number is low. Market: The Private Security Market is being driven mostly by the lack of police protection and high crime. This barriers to entry are low, however well established businesses have an advantage over new startups.
