Video Surveillance a Mixed Opportunity for Semiconductor Providers, Reports In-Stat

Overall semiconductor revenue for the video surveillance equipment will be relatively flat between 2009 and 2013, as lower average selling prices (ASPs) offset unit shipment growth, according to market research firm In-Stat. However, In-Stat's research identifies some key semiconductor opportunities within the segment. Semiconductor revenue in network cameras will surpass US$300 million in revenue by 2012. The video encoder/image processor will be the dominant semiconductor segment. Meanwhile, image sensor revenue across all surveillance cameras will decline from more than $700 million in 2008 to $435 million in 2013.

“The video encoding processor segment remains among the most dynamic opportunity, as it shifts to H.264 from MPEG-4 part 2,” said Michelle Abraham, In-Stat Analyst. “We see growth in analog and power components as well.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

  • The video surveillance equipment market is showing limited unit growth in 2009, but still seeing revenue declines as the weak economy takes its toll.
  • DVR channel shipments are growing faster than camera shipments. Hybrid DVRs are increasing at the highest rate.
  • After a decline in 2009, revenue from analog cameras, network cameras, DVR/NVR and encoders will grow to $19 billion in 2011.
  • As pricing comes down, the attach rate for video analytics in video surveillance equipment will increase at a fast pace.
