The last two years have been convulsed for most of the countries of Latin America, with situations that have brought direct consequences to the electronic security industry, affecting the sustained growth that it had brought years ago.

The dollar has been one of the main factors. The devaluation of the currencies of the region against the dollar caused many projects to slow down and postpone due to the increased cost of the required products and systems to be imported.

The political issue has also directly influenced the electronic security industry. Changes in government, corruption scandals and the dismissal of presidents have paralyzed public investments and even affected the economy. And the government sector is one of the strong clients of our industry.

For many manufacturers, distributors and integrators with whom we had the opportunity to speak, in 2017 the electronic security industry had to take off again, but the arrival of Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States and his speech to Mexico, caused that in the region fear will reign before investment.

But the picture begins to change. The economy has already assumed that the dollar high against the regional currencies will continue for a few more years and companies require the solutions they had postponed and have adjusted their budgets.

The expectation for the second semester of 2017 is high. Now is the time for the entire industry, read, manufacturers, distributors and integrators, to do their best to reach customers with service, innovation, high quality and added value, which allows to execute outstanding projects and keep growing.
