"Smart Market Solutions to Help Your Business Gain Edge over Competitors"
The global electric fencing market size was USD 297.2 million in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 303.4 million in 2021 to USD 442.5 million in 2028 at a CAGR of 5.54% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unmatched and staggering, with witnessing a low demand across all the regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -14.9% in 2020 compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019.
The increasing demand for this type of fencing system for warehouse storage centers, security, and farmland security is likely to fuel the electric fence market growth during the forecast period. An easy construction, lightweight, and more durable fencing capacity are the prime characteristics of the product. It is a combination of multiple conductors of bare wire and technologically advanced insulators that are connected to the fence energizer. It is further connected to a power source and earth rods. The factor expected to drive the market is the usage of electric fencing by armed forces to seal international borders. Moreover, increasing the adoption of the product from farm owners to secure land from wild animals by creating a barrier that keeps farms safe from any intrusion is anticipated to boost the market in the near future.
Electric fence is used in remote areas by using the solar panel power generation system. In remote areas where electric power is not available, solar panels are used as an alternative option. These solar panels are widely used to charge the battery and help supply power to the metal fence. In hilly areas, the lack of an power supply issue is solved by a solar panel-based fencing system. In the solar power enclosure, a wifi-enabled IP energizer is used to monitor solar-based fencing set up through modern operating systems such as Android and IOS. In August 2019, JVA Technologies launched the Jumbo (JMB) electric fence energizer series. The JMB series is used to store 46 J of stored energy. The JMB series consists of a JVA Virtual Keypad used to control, monitor, and program the energizer from Wi-Fi-enabled devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops.
Instability in Demand Amid Pandemic to Decline Growth
The pandemic situation has resulted in restrictions on industry operations and commercial operations. In addition, the temporary lockdowns in several major countries lead to instability in demand for this fencing. The reduction in demand has changed the dynamic of this industry.
On the other hand, investments in this market were declining due to major financial impact on several end-use industries during the pandemic. Many small-scale companies have gone bankrupt due to less demand and the inability to handle the company's finances during this critical period. Therefore, the government, authorized bodies, and key manufacturers have been planning to adopt several new strategies to overcome the impact of the pandemic on the end-use industry.

Rising Adoption of IoT-based Solution and Solar-based Electric Fencing to Boost Market Growth
Electric type of fencing is majorly used in remote areas by using the solar panel power generation system. In remote areas where rechargeable power is not available, solar panels are used as an alternative option. These solar panels are widely used to charge the battery and help supply power to the metal fence. In hilly areas, the lack of an electric supply issue is solved by a solar panel-based fencing system. In the solar power enclosure, a wifi-enabled IP energizer is used to monitor solar-based fencing set up through modern operating systems such as Android and IOS.
The rising demand for an electric guarding system for warehouse security, storage center, and farmland security is likely to fuel the electric fencing market growth during the forecast period. An easy construction, lightweight, and more durable fencing capacity are the prime characteristics of this fencing. It is a combination of multiple conductors of bare wire and technologically advanced insulators that are connected to the fence energizer. It is further connected to a power source and earth rods.
The internet of things (IoT) based solution as per cloud router technology is the latest technological trend. The fencing devices are linked with a cloud router through a nimbus gateway. A real-time notification, user-friendly interface, and advanced log system are the prime features of cloud router technology. The cloud router is used to provide a technologically advanced portal to route signal communications between the administrators of cloud routers and the users of electric fences and their devices in their respective fields. The cloud router technology is majorly used in warehouse security management. The increasing use of an IoT-based cloud router technology from several U.S.-based firms for warehouse security is anticipated to boost the market.
Usage of Electric type of Fencing by Armed Forces to Seal International Borders is Strengthening Market Growth
Several armed forces across the globe are using electric fence to prevent the rising cases of intrusion near international borders. For instance, in the forthcoming years, the armed forces of China are giving preference to spread out barbed electric wires near the Ladakh valley over the border dispute with India. Additionally, the armed forces of Russia adopted an electric fence to secure the China-Russia border. Therefore, the rising focus on strengthening national security is anticipated to boost the market growth during 2021-2028.
In India, the ordinary wires are used to seal the 830 km of the India-Pakistan border in Rajasthan. The ordinary wire setup will be completely sealed by using electrified cobra wires in the upcoming years. The barbed electric wires can electrocute a person attempting to cut it and further alert the security forces. India was deploying a smart Israel-developed fencing system with a 'quick response team' mechanism that strikes when the CCTV-powered control room detects an infiltration attempt. The border security force (BSF) implemented an ambitious project called the comprehensive, integrated border management system (CIBMS) to completely seal the Indo-Pak and India-Bangladesh borders.
Increasing Adoption of Electric Fencing by Farm Owners to Aid Growth
The electric type of fencing solution is more effective for farm safety as it prevents unauthorized entry of wild animals. A well-maintained fencing setup ensures that the wild animals receive minor electric shocks that prevent them from entering the farms. Therefore, it proves to be a strong physical barrier to farm security. The increasing adoption of the electric fence from farm owners to secure land from wild animals is further anticipated to boost the market. In June 2018, sensor specialist Luda Limited announced the development of an advanced monitoring system. This monitoring system is built on an electric fence system. If any wild animal tries to enter through the fence, the monitoring system quickly alerts the farmers.
High Maintenance Cost of Electric Fencing to Restrain Growth
The high cost of up-gradation & maintenance associated with replacing the conventional electric fencing hinders the market growth. The high maintenance cost is associated with the requirement to spreading fences across international borders and maintaining regular inspection to ensure optimum usability. Owing to the high maintenance costs, the end-users are looking for other alternatives such as unmanned systems that may hamper the market growth.

Permanent Fence Segment Held Largest Share in 2020.
Based on the type of fencing, the market is bifurcated into permanent fences and portable fences.
The permanent fencing type segment held a dominant share in the base year. The growth is owing to the increasing need to protect the international border owing to the growing disputes among neighboring countries, and rising cases of illegal border crossing across the world are some major factors driving the adoption of permanent electric fence for security applications.
The portable fencing type segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during 2021-2028. The growth of the segment is attributed to the increasing adoption of portable fencing owing to its various advantages over permanent fencings such as low cost, easy installation, extended life, easily movable, high flexibility, and low maintenance, and low stock damage, among others. Owing to these advantages it is largely preferred for agriculture, pet, and commercial security application.
