What are the Key Influencing Factors Steering Increasing NVR Sales?

“Retail Sector Demanding High-tech Surveillance Systems”

The expanding retail sector is expected to provide a positive outlook to the NVR systems market globally. Utilization of high-tech vision surveillance systems in showrooms and retail stores is projected to lead to steady demand for network video recording systems.

Growing emergence of NVRs as a replacement for conventional DVRs for surveillance is expected to provide long-term benefits to NVR manufacturers across the world. Deployment of NVR systems addresses issues such as image quality, resolution, and night footage quality. Moreover, these systems have a higher lifespan of 8-10 years as compared to conventional DVR technology

“Smart Cities & Infra Development Driving Market Expansion”

Rising infrastructure development and smart city projects across the world are anticipated to drive the global market. Rising investments by governments for smart city projects are likely to provide ample of opportunities for market players.

  • For instance, the Indian government has raised the budget for smart city projects from US$ 470 Mn in 2020 to US$ 890 Mn in 2021. Similar trends can be observed in other countries such as the U.S., Canada, China, Germany, Singapore, and Australia.

“Wireless Technology Expected to Drive NVR Sales Growth”

To attract newer customers, market players have been involved in unique strategies, one of which is product innovation of wireless camera compatible network video recorder.

Moreover, the trend of wireless technology is projected to intensify the deployment of network video recorder systems by 13% over forecast period. Advantages such as easy-to-install and greater coverage with fewer IP cameras are major factors for demand growth.

Wireless cameras reduce the cost of wireline maintenance, due to which, wireless NVR units have witnessed significant growth in the previous years. The wireless technology megatrend is expected to lead to a CAGR of 11.6% by volume over the coming years.

“R&D to Aid Global Market Consolidation”

Leading manufacturers are spending huge amounts on R&D to deliver advanced solutions for night-time surveillance. Emergence of advanced products is expected to improve the current product range, which will provide long-term benefits to manufacturers.

Unavailability of night vision cameras in the market will separate the tier-3 players in the market and provide alternative opportunities for revenue generation for them.

In addition, leading players are also investing in improving cyber security through data management and improvement in data storage. This will provide a promising stance to tier-1 NVR manufacturers for cash flow generation.

What Must Network Video Recorder Manufacturers Be Aware About?

“High Cost of NVR Equipment a Market Growth Restraint”

The high cost of network video recorder systems is likely to reduce product penetration for residential and commercial applications. This high cost is projected to provide opportunities for the utilization of alternative products such as DVRs and other systems.

Surging cybercrime activities are likely to hinder the demand outlook of NVR systems. Application of NVR in military & defense and government agencies has played a very crucial role in market growth during the historical years. Data captured in these applications is not just vital for day-to-day operations but may have also consequences related to national security and other emergencies.

Manufacturers have rolled up their sleeves to tackle this issue, but in the short term, this is likely to remain a key restraint.
