Axis Rise And Fall Inside PRC China

By Charles Rollet, Published Oct 18, 2021, 08:44am EDT (Info+)

Today, Axis' PRC China sales are tiny, but for years Axis considered the PRC the "market with the greatest potential" due to its strong growth and supplied many high-profile PRC enterprise projects, including police.

This all ended in the mid-2010s when the PRC excluded foreign products from government projects while launching massive video surveillance spending campaigns, boosting the rise of Chinese manufacturers like Hikvision and Dahua.

Axis confirmed its PRC struggles to IPVM, stating it is now "practically never invited to bid in government funded projects" and instead is now focused on "international companies that have presence in China."

In this post, IPVM examines Axis PRC's rise and fall.
