#1 Threat 2015 - China

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 07, 2015

Over 125 manufacturers shared with IPVM their outlook for 2015.

We asked them:

"Positive / Negative: Is your outlook for the 2015 video surveillance industry overall positive or negative? Why?"

First thing, we stripped away the silly self-promotional answers they always try to pass off in industry publications, e.g. "4K cameras are the next big thing, p.s., buy my 4K cameras please," or "Storage is going to be huge, oh, I sell hard drives."

We identified 4 real areas of threats / opportunities, with the most important being how concerned manufacturers are about the growing Chinese threat.
