This is the 8th year IPVM has tracked manufacturers gaining and losing:

From 2014 - 2016, IPVM accurately tracked the rise of Chinese manufacturers, led by Hikvision. In 2017 - 2019, due to cybersecurity issues and government bans, results showed that trend stopping and reversing.

Questions Asked

189 integrators answered 2 open-ended questions:

Gained: This year, in 2021, what manufacturers / product lines are you using significantly more of? Why?

Declined: This year, in 2021, what manufacturers / product lines are you using significantly less of? Why?

Additionally, IPVM surveyed integrator size in conjunction with gaining/declining manufacturers, findings are included in this report.
