Regional Analysis

North America is a key market for video surveillance due to the growing concerns pertaining to safety and security. Terror attacks and crimes such as the 9/11 terror attacks and the Boston Marathon bombing have intensified focus on effective security and surveillance. In addition, technological advancements such as cloud storage and video surveillance-as-a-service represent lucrative opportunities for new companies venturing in the video surveillance market as well as traditional vendors providing analog cameras. In 2016, Hikvision, the world’s leading supplier of innovative video surveillance products, teamed up with the Memphis Police Department (MPD) to protect the residents of Memphis in Tennessee, U.S. using a variety of security solutions to prevent and reduce crime.

Similar to the global scenario, the Europe video security surveillance market is also driven by rising security concerns. Terror attacks such as Paris and Brussels attacks have demonstrated the central value of video surveillance and video analytics to French and Belgian security forces. While advanced video surveillance cameras have been recording prominent demand in Europe, a key challenge for market expansion in the region is the possible violation of basic civil rights. For instance, in Germany, the use of public video surveillance is legal as long as the footage is not recorded and/or stored.
