Market outlook of the video surveillance market
The research analyst predicts the global video surveillance market to grow steadily at a CAGR of over 22% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for wireless network infrastructure is the key growth driver for this market. Video surveillance solutions incur high network deployment cost and maintenance cost. Enterprises are opting for wireless network infrastructure to avoid these additional charges incurred due to a wired network. Wireless video surveillance provides security to critical infrastructures such as airports and cities without the additional installation and maintenance cost.
The shift from analog to IP cameras is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. The demand for IP cameras is growing as the total cost of operation of IP cameras is much lower than analog cameras. They are more flexible, scalable, and can be easily installed when compared to analog cameras. Moreover, IP cameras have built-in servers or encoders that help in image encryption and provide multi-level user access control, which prevents third-party manipulation.
