4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis

4.1 Economic Outlook

This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the security service and installation industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. As stated earlier, one of the most interesting portions of this business is its ability to generate recurring streams of revenue from inspection, repair, and maintenance services of installed security equipment. This will be especially important during times of economic recession, when Management believes the demand for new installations will slow considerably.

4.2 Industry Analysis

According the U.S. Economic Census, security system installation contractors generated gross revenues of $8 billion dollars. The industry employs more than 110,000 people and outputs gross annual payrolls of $2.5 billion dollars. The market growth in this industry has been resilient, with its average annual year growth rate nearing 15%. The industry is expected to have modest growth over the next 12 to 18 months as the demand for new housing and new commercial facilities has waned. However, and as stated above, companies operating within this industry will remain profitable from the necessary maintenance services offered to customers. The number of establishments, during the five year period ending in 2010, increased more than 75%. Additionally, the aggregate revenues generated by the business grew over 104% over the same period. This increase is primarily attributed to the increase in cost drivers including inflation and the cost of oil.

Security Systems Company, Inc. will have two primary customer bases: residential customers and business customers.

4.4 Competitive Analysis

This is one of the sections of the business plan that you must write completely on your own. The key to writing a strong competitive analysis is that you do your research on the local competition. Find out who your competitors are by searching online directories and searching in your local Yellow Pages. If there are a number of competitors in the same industry (meaning that it is not feasible to describe each one) then showcase the number of businesses that compete with you, and why your business will provide customers with service/products that are of better quality or less expensive than your competition.

This will be accomplished through direct mail advertisements, listings in the local Yellow Books, and cold calling. The business will also develop a limited presence among locally based newspapers that will target the general public.
