Market Competition and Expansion:

Recently BSRIA published a study of the world electronic security market. The report is broken down into 18 key countries and regions, covering established as well as important emerging markets such as the “BRIC” countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China. The report was compiled through findings from interviews with contacts throughout the world. It reveals that the world electronic security systems market is now worth more than US$ 58 billion, has continued to grow on aggregate throughout the recession, and is forecast to achieve double-digit compound annual growth in the period up to 2015. Few other building technology markets exhibit such attractive statistics. This section will provide detail on some of the technology types and geographic regions examined in the study.Closed-circuit television (CCTV) has the largest market share in world security, the largest markets being Asia and America. In 2010 the global market for CCTV well outpaced the combined markets for access control and intruder alarm systems. The U.K. security market is considerably more mature than many other international markets, and many of the world’s leading players are present there. Nevertheless, like the international market, it remains highly fragmented and is host to many small, local companies. The BSRIA report shows the market for CCTV, access control and intruder alarms in the U.K. was worth more than US$3.2 billion in 2010. The U.K. is the most surveyed country in Europe with an estimated 4.25 million CCTV cameras deployed. Despite this fact, because of the low-quality image delivered by the majority of the installed base of cameras, only one crime is solved for every 1,000 cameras. This is driving demand for technological improvement of all aspects of the systems. The industry has moved toward digital and networked systems, megapixel cameras and is currently addressing issues related to digital video evidence and common communication protocols between different manufacturers’ products. Wide-ranging application of CCTV extends from simple scene monitoring to facial-recognition technology, remote video monitoring, video smoke detection, mobile systems and automatic number-plate recognition. There is a growing trend for video analytic software, which can be programmed to intelligently analyze and respond to a changing scene. Video-analytic software is also being used to improve retail operations, such as queue monitoring, people counting and measuring traffic patterns to drive sales and customer satisfaction. Motorized pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras can detect and track intruders and new, high-definition technology is also expected to accelerate in the next few years. Asia represents the largest share of the worldwide CCTV market, followed by the Americas and Europe. The use of 360-degree panoramic cameras as well as thermal infrared cameras, based on heat-sensitive sensors that can operate in complete darkness, are both expected to grow very strongly over the next few years. In the area of video recording, there is a growing trend away from basic digital video recorders (DVRs) toward network video recorders (NVRs) and hybrid DVRs that can accept signals from both traditional analog cameras and the latest digital cameras. IP network-based systems continue to gain share as they offer enhanced flexibility and versatility, but also remote viewing and control of video data from one or more interfaces in different locations. They represent a lower total cost of ownership than a corresponding analog system, particularly as the system size grows. The largest providers of software in the North American market are Schneider Electric (Pelco), ISS, Tyco, Bosch and Honeywell. Video analytics are an important part of ISS’s business, and will account for almost half of their market share. Video analytics is the fastest-growing segment in the North American security software market and the capability is widely requested. Video analytics soon will account for a third of the market, but in the meantime, video management software (VMS) accounts for the lion’s share. There also is a strong demand for software that can more-effectively compress data in order to better handle high-volume data flow of IP cameras and systems. Although the analytics are mainly implemented in the management software or video recorder, they can also be integrated into the camera. North America is one of the most competitive markets in the world, with many regional players and a few large multinational companies. There is strong Asian (Korean, Chinese) low-price competition entering the lower- to mid-end of the market. The market is slowly recovering from the aftermath of the global financial crisis, and showing signs of recovery. The systems and maintenance markets are forecast to grow more strongly than the product market due to upgrades and the demand for more sophisticated solutions in general. Consequently, although we are only forecasting single-digit annual growth for product, both value-add and service-and-maintenance are forecast to achieve annual growth in excess of 13 percent up to 2015. CCTV technology has been embraced rapidly and further developed by Chinese security entrepreneurs, such as HIK and Dahua. Chinese manufacturers now hold the intellectual property rights to a growing range of security products, and are starting to penetrate the global market. The market is awash with manufacturers, with around 450 players competing. Global suppliers like Panasonic, Tyco, Samsung, LG, Bosch and Honeywell all are present; some of the larger local players include names like Guotong Chuangan, Yaan, Tiandi Weiye, Shenzhen Hongdi, Infinova, Bell, Zhuhai Stone, Changzhou Mingjing, Zhejiang Dahua, HIK, Jingyang, CSST, TCL and H3C. System integrators are now providing not only design and installation services, but also many after-sales services such as training for clients on how to maintain the product and tutorials on how to use the software. These services are proving quite profitable for them. The Chinese market is one of the biggest for analog cameras, with total sales value of US $1.113 billion in 2010, representing 38 percent of the total product market. The IP camera market is half that of analog, amounting to US $542 million. DVR and NVR also have sound performance in China; the combined market equals US $728 million, accounting for 22 percent of the total product market. In China, all of the interviewed manufacturers claimed that moving toward network cameras (and therefore adopting more NVRs) is no doubt the future product trend. It inevitably will happen, and end-users will benefit from the higher quality of images. The BSRIA study has analyzed the routes to market and vertical markets in each of the 18 countries and regions, which has highlighted some interesting differences. For example, in the Middle East, 50 percent of the product is sold through distributors, whereas in Asia/Pacific, 56 percent is sold via the specialist security installers/value-added resellers (VARs). The channels through which security systems are sold can vary significantly from one geographic region to another. In the Middle East and Africa, distributors account for half the total system sales, while VARs account for 28 percent. The situation is reversed in the Asia/Pacific region, where 28 percent are sold through distributors and more than half through VARs. The largest markets for access controls are Japan, with the market estimated to be worth US $1.26 billion in 2010, and North America, at US $3.05 billion in 2010—up 7 percent from the previous year and with 2011’s growth anticipated at 8 percent. Within Europe, the U.K. represents the largest market for access control at US $820 million. The use of smart cards is increasing in offices, education and health sectors. Present examples include cashless vending, personal computer access, library systems, transport payment
