Video surveillance camera growth is being driven by the adoption of smart camera systems and the adoption of the video analytics applications that enable them. A short-term decline has been driven by COVID-19 impacts, but longer-term prospects will be driven by the increasing use of video surveillance in law enforcement and physical security.

Several factors have been hampering the growth of the video surveillance camera sector, including the coronavirus pandemic and the exclusion of the two market leaders from contention for US government contracts. Also, the use of advanced analytics and artificial intelligence for applications like facial recognition has become a sensitive area that may lead to greater regulation, thus impacting the industry.

However, the industry will benefit from the increased need for smart camera systems and analytical software, both of which can help these types of cameras play a few different roles beyond that of simple surveillance.

North America remains the top consumer for video surveillance cameras, followed closely by China. Several Chinese camera manufacturers have been blacklisted, a factor that will not slow growth but will actually open the market to smaller camera makers, according to
