Published Date: | Report Code : IT1950934


Increasing population, terrorist threats, and other such reasons are expected to drive the growth of the Surveillance Devices Market during the forecast period. This has resulted in some of the key developments by companies operating in the market to consolidate their market positions and look for further niche opportunities.

Surveillance devices are used to identify, track, and monitor behaviors, actions, and communications of individuals for spying and policing purposes. There are several types of surveillance systems, which include audio, video, phone monitoring, etc.

Nowadays, surveillance devices are used everywhere, from roads to buildings to shops. Due to the increasing crime rates, almost all businesses whether small or big use surveillance devices to monitor and secure their premises. Governments throughout the world are using these devices to monitor the lives of their citizens. One such initiative was the Five Eye Alliance among the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The aim of this organization was to set up a global surveillance network, which was code-named “Echelon”. The existence of this organization was hardly acknowledged by other governments and the mainstream media until the ‘Global Surveillance disclosures’ by Edward Snowden. This disclosure by Snowden led to a global debate about the right to privacy in the digital age.

The video surveillance type segment is expected to account for a prominent share of the market. Due to the increasing penetration of Internet Protocol (IP) cameras for home and retail security solutions, the video surveillance segment is expected to grow significantly.

The market for surveillance devices is expected to grow in the Asia Pacific region due to the increasing number of manufacturing plants and other businesses starting in these regions as a result of the ongoing industrialization. Moreover, due to terrorism, governments are increasing their budgets for surveillance devices to prevent any imminent attack. Furthermore, rapid urbanization in this region is leading to infrastructural development and governments of countries in this region are incorporating the use of video surveillance cameras to monitor traffic flow in respective countries.

North America is expected to account for the largest share of the market due to readiness in adopting new technologies, growing competition among wireless security camera vendors, increasing demand for security, and high disposable income, which is leading to high procurement of these devices for safety.
