For the past decade and a half, the need for video surveillance has risen due to security issues faced by both individuals and organizations. Increasing terrorists’ strikes and growing crime rates have become global issues and there is a high demand for security solutions. Chief among other security concerns that the global community
faces include drug trafficking, border threats, internal discontent, financial fraud and theft. Terrorism, both domestic and international in its myriad forms, is the most pressing security concern. With buildings, flights, trains, crowded areas, schools, and holiday destinations under threat, governments across the globe are constantly looking for new methods to keep populations safe.

Regions around the world, including the United States United Kingdom, Middle East and Asia-Pacific countries, such as India and Pakistan, are under the constant threat of terrorism. Industries such as aviation, hospitality and education are also consistently facing terrorist threats.
Video surveillance is one of many solutions that those in charge of security are using.
Advanced solutions in development and new applications are entering the market that allow security agencies to cover large areas with video cameras with limited staff.

The global video surveillance and VSaaS market includes hardware, software and services. Video surveillance hardware includes cameras. The video surveillance software market and video management software is expected to be in high demand, along with video analytics, as demand increases for Internet Protocol (IP)-based video
surveillance systems.

The IP video surveillance market is undergoing an evolutionary phase in developing countries, therefore promising significant potential. In developed countries, IP surveillance systems are replacing analog surveillance systems. Increasing awareness regarding the benefits of IP-based surveillance systems, favorable regulatory
impositions and rising security concerns are expected to catalyze the growth of the IP surveillance market from 2015 to 2020.

IP surveillance systems have better flexibility and scalability features compared to closed-circuit television (CCTV) and conventional surveillance systems. Analog systems are expandable only to a specific limit: for example, only a limited number of cameras can be added to an existing infrastructure. However, IP surveillance systems are
creating better opportunities for end users willing to focus on multilevel or multisite business expansions. For this reason, organizations are expected to prefer IP surveillance systems over analog systems. IP surveillance systems are configured with advanced technology such as video motion detection, frame rate control, automatic
brightness control, internal storage memory and remote-zoom features.
