This report contains data on the revenue of 32 security manufacturers, trend analysis of whether they are gaining or losing ground and commentary on each included. 

The following chart previews the data in this report:

Revenue data can be used to better understand how various manufacturers rank relative to each other in terms of size, ability to impact the market, ability to acquire other companies, or potential to be acquired themselves.

Because this lists covers manufacturers ranging from niche applications to global players, it should not be used as a basis for buying decisions or product evaluations, as companies with lower revenue could be particularly advanced in certain markets or applications.

Does anyone have an estimate on DMP?

We are looking into DMP revenue and will update the report if we get reliable data.

[UPDATE]

Hanwha section has been updated based on additional feedback we received:

Hanwha

Hanwha's $574M revenue estimate includes both B2B sales (the Hanwha Techwin products security industry people are familiar with) and B2C (Samsung-branded SmartCam consumer cameras). The B2B unit is the larger portion (86%), at ~$493M. Of the $493M, ~$110M is North American sales.

Awesome report. Helps to put a lot of things into perspective.

About Hik: Wow...

most sales to china, printing that money to infinity and beyond, almost seems like a...bubble?

those ghost cities are really paying off.

[UPDATE]

We were able to get 2016 revenue numbers for Uniview and updated the graphic and data accordingly. Uniview's 2016 revenue was $302M.

 

I missed this report. Thank you for it, an interesting document. Why is there no comment from Tyco? VideoEdge or exacqVision? Keep up the good work.

Niall, Tyco (now JCI) does not break out revenue that granularly. 

Before Tyco acquired Exacq, Exacq reported ~$54 million in 2012. Assuming a CAGR of ~15%, that would put them at $100+ million for 2017. I don't know their compounded annual growth rate, I think it's at least 15% but it could be higher, especially assuming higher growth in the 2013 / 2014 / 2015 time frame, etc.

From what we have seen in surveys, VideoEdge is much less commonly used than Exacq. To that end, I would expect VideoEdge revenue to be markedly less than Exacq.

Thank you, John.

 

Do we have the same research for 2017?

Eric, 2017 numbers are just starting to come out, so we will update later this year when more announcements are made.

A few big companies with 2017 numbers announced:

  • Avigilon: $408 million
  • Axis: ~$1.1 billion
  • Dahua: ~$2.9 billion
  • Hikvision:  ~$6.6 billion
