    According to IHS Markit forecasts over 130 million video surveillance cameras will be shipped globally in 2018. This number has increased dramatically from 2006 when shipments were less than 10 million. The increase in demand for video surveillance cameras has subsequently caused growth in associated storage requirements. The market for external storage systems (SAN, NAS and external DAS) used for storing video surveillance data is estimated to have been worth $1.7 billion in 2017.

    At the start of this decade, many observers expected the video surveillance industry would quickly move towards a recurring revenue model. Much like the cell phone industry, video surveillance equipment would be paid for via a monthly service fee. The reality has so far turned out to be somewhat different. Most video surveillance equipment is still paid for upfront in a one-off fee. Despite this, the market for cloud-connected video surveillance equipment, which is paid for on a yearly, quarterly, or monthly basis has been steadily growing. Known as VSaaS (video surveillance as a service) the market is also forecast to exceed $1 billion for the first time in 2017. This is according to a recently published report from IHS Markit, “Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) Report – 2017”.
