  • Monica Wang | August 14, 2017
    Years of double-digit growth in shipments of video surveillance cameras in China are over, giving way to future growth in deep learning video analytics. According to the latest Video Surveillance Intelligence Service by IHS Markit, unit shipments of video surveillance cameras grew just 2.3% in China in 2016 compared to the previous year, at 58.2 million units, much lower than in 2015 (34.6%), 2014 (38.5%) and 2013 (29.6%). The lower rate of growth in security camera reflects the high installed-base of cameras in China. Demand for cameras in future will be increasingly due to replacements rather than new installations.
