Posted by Pradeep Zende on January 21st, 2020

Mechanical locks are generally used for security purposes. Several electronic locking devices require mechanical lock in case of power failure or system error. Owing to the deployment of mechanical locks at commercial, residential, and industrial spaces, the global mechanical locks market is expanding at a rapid pace. With growing security concerns across the globe, the need for high-security locking systems in commercial as well as residential spaces is increasing. Global mechanical locks market size research is presumed to garner USD 8.52 billion during the forecast period (2018-2023). The global market is predicted to demonstrate 4.80% CAGR owing to the rising demand for weatherproof padlocks in marine applications, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). 

With the growing demand for waterproof padlocks in marine applications, the market is estimated to flourish during the assessment period. The increasing consumer preference for deadbolt locks is further considered to stimulate the market growth. Also referred to as deadlocks, deadbolts can be opened by rotating the key. Deadbolts provide a higher level of protection than doorknobs with pin tumbler locks owing to its hardened steel bolts and advanced mechanism. Most of the burglaries involve forced entries which has further encouraged the consumers to shift to deadbolt locks, thereby propelling the market growth for mechanical locks market during the assessment period. Moreover, with the growing demand for two-way locks in emergency exits, the market is anticipated to foster in the coming years. The ease of use both at entry and exit points coupled with the prevention against self-locking is triggering the demand for two-way locks for emergency exits.

There have been rapid technological advancements in locks in the past few years. Consumers are shifting their preferences from mechanical locks to smart locks as they offer networked access control. This can dampen the market growth in the coming years.
