To close out 2023, Locksmith Ledger released its annual State of the Industry report where we asked locksmiths for their thoughts on key topics around their business, including market and product areas where they are seeing the most growth, as well as technologies and trends they are most excited or concerned about. In this roundtable discussion we will delve into our findings, looking at current trends in the locking and access control world, such as the continued move to electronic access, the rise of smart locks and mobile access, consolidation among lock manufacturers, finding the next generation of locksmiths, training opportunities in 2024, and much more!
