Wireless video surveillance market sees growth ahead

London, UK

Technavio, a tech-focused market research firm, has published a new report on the global Wireless Video Surveillance market, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 21% during the forecast period 2017-2021.

The market researchers have segemented the wireless video surveillance or WVS market into three key geographical regions: The Americas accounting for 43.24% of the market in 2016 , the APAC countries 33.18% and the EMEA regions 23.58%.

Analysts found that in the Americas, the US government has augmented its budget for the deployment of defence and security systems in the country. The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is adopting certain standards for the safety of critical infrastructure in the Americas. Therefore, there is increased adoption of the security cameras among commercial, residential, utilities, and government sectors in the Americas to protect people and property.

According to Amit Sharma, a lead analyst at Technavio, specialising in research on IT security, “In the 2016 Olympics event that was held in Brazil, the government incurred heavy investment in surveillance cameras to protect the athletes and the premises. Further, the industrial sector in the Americas is experiencing a convergence of technologies, which is paving the way for the high adoption of wireless security cameras.”

The WVS market in the EMEA is witnessing growth in Europe due to the imposition of government regulations such as the European Data Protection Directive. The demand for the security systems among commercial and government sectors is increasing in Europe because of increased security concerns. Besides this, the oil and gas industry has the highest demand for surveillance cameras due to the increasing number of thefts in the industry.

The governments in APAC countries, due to security concerns, have made the implementation of CCTV cameras mandatory in public places. Moreover, the emergence of retail chains in India will drive the market for better security systems. APAC is an emerging region for global trading and tourist activities, and this further propels the need for advanced wireless cameras in the region. Several factors, such as increased government spending, growing awareness, and an increase in private sector spending, are accelerating the demand for WVS systems in the APAC countries.

The players described by analysts as being the top vendors operating in the global WVS market are Bosch Security Systems, Cisco Systems and Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology.  Other prominent vendors mentioned in the market include D-Link, Flir Systems, Frontpoint Security Solutions, GO2tech, Laview Eagle-Eye Technology, Motorola Solutions, Radiusvision, Sentry Communications and Security, Swann, and Toshiba.

Slow up take of biometrics in access market

Ever since the first fingerprint readers came to market more than a decade ago, access control industry stakeholders have eagerly anticipated the prospect of finally eliminating cards from their systems.  However, as of 2015, biometric reader sales accounted for just 30 percent of access control reader sales in the Americas. Meaning they ranked third, still behind both 125 kHz proximity and smart card readers in popularity. "Hardly the credential revolution that manufacturers were hoping for." says Jim Dearing, analyst at research company, IHS Markit.

Smart parking solution meets the challenge

In the last two decades, global economic growth has led to a tremendous increase in vehicles in almost every corner of the world. Reports have shown that in cities, most high rise apartment buildings have had difficulties managing their parking spaces. ID card issuing, billing, entrance control and payment made the entrance procedure very inefficient. Traditional smart card management systems limit the access to those who hold an allocated smart card. However, cards could be stolen and the processing of a lost card is inconvenient.
