Realistic Projections For The Video Surveillance Market?

Hi All,

I know there was a recent discussion about this. I would like to get your recommendations on where I can find good market research about the topics below. I am interested in the following:

1- Current Size, projected growth in the next 5 years, etc in North America

2- IP vs Analog sales in gross sales and number of cameras. Since IP is a about 2-3 times analog, let’s say the market is split 50/50 that could mean analog is selling 2-3 times more cameras/systems than IP.

3- Number of Integrator selling IP vs Analog. Again, we can have 50/50 split on gross sales but since IP is now mainly deployed on most new large projects by mid size to large integrators, the breakdown might not be 50/50 on integrators.

4- Market size for Do-it-yourself system (Lorex,Foscam,etc). I think I am seeing more and more of these solutions deployed in small business.

John, I know you have plenty of surveys about some of this here at IPVM but I am concerned that the data might not be very accurate. I could be wrong, but I believe that most of your members might have a higher skill level than the average integrator. Also, what is the easiest way for me to serach for your surveys?

Looking forward to your feedback.
