So if Hikvision is content to dominate China, I suspect they will continue to do so. After all, an authoritarian government as owner helps significantly.
However, Hikvision knows they are not 'dominating' the rest of the world and certainly not North America, outside of the low end of the market.
This is the Chinese news I like to hear and agree with. It would be nice to have some US companies that design, manufacture and sell with a "Made in USA" sticker. And only available to buy through qualified distributors at a slightly higher price than DaHik. But as far as I know there isn't. And we definitely didn't want to sell Dahua or Hik. But Uniview was a perfect fit
I think they will surpass DaHik on non-China sales soon. Uniview sees the mistakes of DaHik and so far are doing a good job not following in the their footsteps. They may have a smaller selection, but I consider that a benefit and shows they are more focused on quality not quantity. Same as their relationships with distributors. They are relatively small and unheard of in the US compared to DaHik, but they are building a good foundation worldwide that will pay off in the long run.
And my opinion is obviously biased, but even if we didn't sell Uniview product, I would still vote them as a top contender. They have the home field advantage manufacturing in China, and have the other visiting Chinese teams getting booed and heckled off the playing field.
