US Video Surveillance Equipment Market to 2021 by Product, Technology and End-User - Cameras to Post Largest and Fastest Gains -


The "Video
Surveillance Equipment in the US by Product, Technology and Market"

report has been added to's

This study presents historical demand data (2006, 2011 and 2016) and
forecasts for 2021 by product (cameras, monitors, recording equipment,
other components), technology (IP, analog), and market (trade and
distribution, government, financial, educational, industrial, services,
healthcare, air transport, offices, consumer, lodging, other

The study also evaluates company market share and competitive analysis
on industry competitors, including:

  • Robert Bosch
  • Canon
  • Hangzhou Hikvision
  • Hanwha
  • Honeywell International
  • Johnson Controls
  • Schneider Electric

Cameras & Video Systems with Enhanced Capabilities Drive Gains

Growth will be driven by the increasing affordability of feature-rich
systems that incorporate enhanced capabilities, which will:

  • work to expand the base of end users that choose to install video
    surveillance systems
  • spur replacement and upgrade demand among existing end users

Continued, though slowing, gains in construction activity will also
support new system installations among the expanding base of potential
end users. New construction in the trade and distribution market, where
video systems are key security components, will drive gains.

Cameras to Post Largest and Fastest Gains

Cameras accounted for roughly half of all video surveillance system
sales in value terms in 2016 and will represent 70% of additional total
sales growth through 2021.

Gains will be supported by a number of factors:

  • Stiff price competition at all price points will result in more
    affordable products, expanding the potential customer base and
    propelling volume gains, even as it limits value sales to a degree.
  • Ongoing technological advances that provide enhanced characteristics -
    such as improved durability, ease of use, and picture quality -

    will drive upgrade demand.

Although other components will not see advances as rapid as those posted
in the cameras segment, there are a variety of opportunities for growth.
For instance, rising use of ultra high definition cameras and recording
equipment will support increasing sales of high quality, higher value
monitors, such as 4K and 8K types, albeit from a small base. Sales of
encoders will also see new opportunities as interest in HD analog
systems grows.

Technological Advances Continue to Support More Frequent Upgrade

Various innovations across the video surveillance industry add
performance advantages and increased functional capabilities, which spur
owners of existing installations to upgrade before their useful
lifespans are over. The ongoing transition of the installed stock from
analog to IP-based digital video systems is one such example.
Technological improvements are included in more mass market equipment as
prices come down.

Examples include:

  • IP capable thermal cameras
  • enhanced HD analog cameras and recording equipment that are capable of
    operating with all HD analog technologies as well as traditional
    analog systems
  • analytic technology used in conjunction with panoramic cameras that
    provide higher quality dewarped images
