Live From China CPSE 2015

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Nov 02, 2015

China's growing influence, if not dominance, of the global video surveillance market is unquestionable.

To better understand this, IPVM has gone to China. Our first stop is CPSE, which claims ~1000 exhibitors and 100,000+ attendees (~4x that of ISC West, ASIS, IFSEC, etc.)

Here is a quick video clip from the show floor:

Key Observations

  • HD analog is big in China. Outside of a few large companies focused on enterprise projects, pretty much everyone is marketing HD analog prominently. Overall, at the show, HD analog and IP had roughly the same level of promotion.
  • Hikvision, Dahua, and Uniview are high-end. In China, Hikvision, Dahua, and Uniview are regarded as high end, much like Axis et al. in the West. This is in stark contrast to North America, where these Chinese companies are most often referred to as “budget” manufacturers.
  • Project business is very important. Since the government funds or controls so much of the infrastructure in China, many cameras that would be part of a smaller private business in the West are part of a much larger system in China. These favor larger manufacturers and IP.
  • Main differentiator is price: There are hundreds of manufacturers / assemblers in China. The most common differentiator is that they do the same as Hikvision and Dahua but at lower cost. There is little R&D / IP / product innovation for smaller competitors. However, they do add price pressure and provide options for rock bottom camera prices (e.g.,, $5 to $10 for HD analog).
