Why are We Seeing Increased Installation of Network Video Recorders?

“Emerging Technologies for Network Video Recorders Paving Way for High Market Growth”

During the forecast period, increasing retail sector operations is expected to lend a positive outlook for NVR systems globally. High-tech video surveillance system utilization in showrooms and retail stores is expected to increase the demand for NVRs.

The emergence of technology in network video recorders has replaced conventional DVRs for surveillance and is anticipated to provide long-term benefits to NVR manufacturers. The deployment of NVR systems addresses the issue of image quality, resolution, and night footage quality. Moreover, NVR systems have a higher lifespan of 8 to 10 years as compared to conventional DVR technology.

Furthermore, infrastructural development and smart cities are expected to drive the global target market. High investments by governments in the development of infrastructural projects are likely to provide lucrative opportunities to market players over the coming years.

  • For instance, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia invested US$ 1 trillion in construction and real estate to accomplish the goal of Saudi Arabia’s 2030 vision.

As such, rising construction projects will act as a driver for network video recorder installation.

“Rising Demand for Traffic Surveillance & Control Systems”

Population growth is an important reason for generating significant demand for traffic surveillance and control systems.

  • According to the United Nations, the world’s population is expected to surpass the 8 billion mark by 2040.

Economies with high demographic growth and rising urbanization are driving the demand for traffic management and road safety surveillance.

The utilization of advanced surveillance systems will aid traffic management along with reducing road mishaps across the world. The intensifying road traffic, due to the large population, generates a considerable need for NVR systems.

Owing to this, demand for network video recorders is expected to rise in traffic surveillance data centers to increase traffic surveillance security. Also, smart cities are creating the stage for higher installation of network video recorders.

Which Factors are Pulling Back Market Growth?

“High Pricing & Installation Cost of NVR Systems to Stunt Product Uptake”

The high cost associated with network video recorders system is likely to drag demand down in residential and commercial applications. This high-cost factor is anticipated to provide an opportunity for the utilization of substitute products such as DVRs and other systems.

Increasing cybercrime activities will also hinder the demand for the product. NVR applications in military and defense and other government organizations play a crucial role in market growth. Data captured in these applications are crucial, and if leaked, can have adverse consequences for national security and emergencies. This could also be a restraining factor for the product due to the reduced trust of users.

Why are Wired Cameras Bring in High Revenue Streams for Network Video Operators?

Wireless cameras with NVR systems allow easy access to long-distance footage, which covers a range of 500 feet or more. However, wireless cameras are less economical, and to install these devices, they need to be within the Wi-Fi range. As such, the installation of wireless cameras is less preferable as compared to wired cameras in homes. Wired cameras are more economical, provide more reliable signals, and do not require any monthly fee for cloud storage.

The cost benefit associated with wired cameras is more likely to be preferred by households and small stores. As such, the wired cameras sub-segment is predicted to expand 3.4X by the end of 2032.

Will the Government Sector Continue Accounting for Highest Product Installations?

The benefits of network video recorders such as better vision, low maintenance cost, and coverage of large areas are likely to increase product demand. The surge in advanced security camera surveillance systems in government organizations such as defense and the military is driving the production of NVRs to protect nations in case of emergencies.

Security cameras also reduce the cost of hiring additional security personnel. In other words, NVRs are always functional in the absence of employees in an organization and maintain the privacy and security of documents without security personnel.

As a result, the government segment is expected to exhibit growth at 12.1% CAGR during the forecast years.
