IMS Research forecasts sales of network video products to overtake analog in 2013
According to IMS Research, 2013 will be the tipping point for when sales of network video surveillance equipment overtake analog.
A recently published report by the market research firm, “IP Trends in Security – A Survey of Systems Integrators and Installers,” found that 80 percent of North American systems integrators and installers currently purchase some IP-based surveillance equipment from IT distributors. This is expected to increase to 90 percent over the next three years.
“The arrival of IP-technology has instead bought its own questions, and simultaneously changed the shape of the market place,” IMS wrote in a statement. “With the emergence of IP-based technology, IT distributors and IT integrators are now, increasingly, competing with traditional security distributors and security integrators.”
