Top Manufacturers Gaining and Losing 2019

By IPVM Team, Published Nov 18, 2019, 12:19pm EST

2019 has been an explosive year for video surveillance, with the world's two largest manufacturers, Dahua and Hikvision, being sanctioned for human rights abuses and banned for US government use.

How would it impact their usage amongst integrators?

This is the 6th year IPVM has tracked manufacturers gaining and losing:

From 2014 - 2016, IPVM accurately tracked the rise of Chinese manufacturers, led by Hikvision. In 2017 - 2018, due to cybersecurity issues and government bans, results showed that trend stopping.

US / Non-US Stats Split

New, for 2019, IPVM has split responses from the US vs outside of the US to see how these trends varied and how much US actions were impacting the US vs the rest of the world.

In this report, we analyze the results and patterns across 175 integrator responses and what this shows about the industry going into 2020.
