Analysis on European Video Surveillance Cameras Market

A new report titled ‘European Video Surveillance Cameras Market’ from Frost & Sullivan has been included in the offering from Research and Markets.

Analysts from Frost & Sullivan have studied the market sectors in-depth. These market sectors are based on product type, by geographical regions, by application and by industries. The product type refers to analogue and IP that includes high definition, megapixel, and standard video graphics array. The application category relates to transport, government, commercial and others. The geographic region-wise study focuses on Germany, Scandinavia, France, Iberia, the United Kingdom, Benelux and Italy.

The report has analyzed trends for distribution, competition and pricing for the European market’s video surveillance cameras sector in-depth. It has also conducted a thorough analysis of various trends in transport, government and commercial vertical markets.

Video surveillance cameras are currently undergoing a transformation to IP technology from analogue technology and recent years have seen the emergence of high-resolution cameras megapixel cameras. The very competitive and lively market has experienced increased improvements due to considerable enhancements in processors, image sensors, and lenses markets.

Surveillance cameras have emerged more affordable, technologically sophisticated, and feature rich during the recent years due to significant enhancements in camera components. Now surveillance is considered as a proactive system rather than a reactive tool due to advanced integration of the IP technology with other systems, resulting in cost savings for time and resources for retrieving data for useful analysis. The IT companies’ influx has enabled the security industry landscape to adapt itself to the complex and fast changing world of higher resolution images and networks, which provide large volumes of information to business-intelligent applications.

End users prefer IP-enabled surveillance to analogue cameras, as they are more aware of the requirement for high-quality surveillance and security for eliminating vandalism crime, and facilitate the cost-efficient utilization of guards. Till now, the economic downturn and the resulting consequent budget limitation and longer sales cycles during 2009 had reduced the swift migration to the IP-based surveillance from analogue-based surveillance.

Since analogue has a majority shipment share even now, the lack of ability and drive from the established distribution channel renders it more difficult for IP manufacturers to access the market. However, IP is experiencing resurgence with users who are acknowledging the advantages of improved detail and image quality provided by high-definition and megapixel cameras and its usage of the current IP infrastructure. Video surveillance solutions are emerging as a standard in most security installations, according to the research analyst.  In addition, enhanced integration and remote tracking functionalities capabilities along with reducing prices has resulted in development of  surveillance as an affordable system for both security and non-security applications.
