Top Manufacturers Gaining and Losing 2018

By: IPVM Team, Published on Nov 26, 2018

This is the 5th year IPVM has tracked manufacturers gaining and losing:

From 2014 - 2016, IPVM accurately tracked the rise of Chinese manufacturers, led by Hikvision. In 2017, after the Dahua and Hikvision backdoors, results showed the trend stop.

Now, in 2018, with a US / China trade war and the August 2018 US government ban, what would be the impact on manufacturers gaining and losing ground?

Plus, we examine the top two upwardly trending technologies being sold by integrators.

In this report, we analyze results and patterns across 160+ integrator responses and what this shows about the industry going into 2019.
