Megapixel Market Growth Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on Dec 08, 2009

Megapixel is the fastest growth market segment in video surveillance. The recent entrance of dozens of manufacturers has grown the market and reduced the dominance of early entrances.

In December 2009, Mobotix announced that it now has about 40% of the worldwide megapixel market (according to IMS study of 2008 revenue). While this is a significant percentage, it is down sharply from the previous year's study where Mobotix claimed an approximately 60% share of this market (in 2007 revenue). This is despite an approximate 25-30% growth in Mobotix's revenue between 2007 and 2008 (see annual revenue breakdown for Mobotix from 2006-2009).
