245 million video surveillance cameras installed globally in 2014

August 2015 Editor's Choice, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, News

According to IHS, there were 245 million professionally installed video surveillance cameras active and operational globally in 2014. While the majority of these cameras were analogue, over 20% are estimated to have been network cameras and around 2% HD CCTV cameras.

This is the first time that IHS has measured the installed base of security cameras. The analysis was driven from 10 years of unit shipment data collected for its video surveillance research. IHS estimated the service life of cameras in each sub-region by end-user industry to size the current installed base.

Hikvision is estimated to have had the largest number of security cameras installed worldwide in 2013. Samsung Techwin is estimated to have been second. Supply has been fragmented though with the top 10 camera vendors accounting for less than 40% of all installed cameras.
