Retailers in Russia are willing to hike their investments in video surveillance and integrated systems. Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) antennas, labels, and tags were the most popular solutions for loss prevention, used by 73% of retailers last year. Spider wraps and security pods/containers, advanced inventory control tactics, secure cable devices are also widely used. Obviously, using a mix of loss prevention solutions - EAS, fixtures, CCTV, manual screening - is the best preventive maintenance of loss prevention.
Only last year $ 189 million were spent in Russia on security systems in Retail segment. X5 Retail Group, Russia's largest food retailer in terms of sales, is planning to spend more than 340 million rubles on security systems next year. Usual spendings for security systems implementation in Russia are about 2 million rubles per supermarket, and more than 100 million rubles for each hypermarket.
We invite manufacturers and developers of security systems to use TB Forum 2018 as an effective entry point to major retail security projects in Russia:
Most of the traditional security shows do not focus on loss prevention techniques and solutions that are applicable to Retail. Trade shows and loss prevention conferences specific to retail vertical have not been organized in Russia yet. That is why Retail Cluster at TB Forum Safety & Security Technologies 2018 attracts thousands of Retail professionals from Russia and overseas every year.
