Axis is still ranked number one and is the global market leader in the network cameras as well as security cameras categories. The security cameras category includes both analog cameras and network cameras.
In 2012, Axis further strengthened its market position by taking first place in the video encoders category. A video encoder is a product that connects to an analog camera and digitizes the video signal to make it possible to use the advantages of a network solution.
According to IHS, network cameras will account for more than 50 percent of global surveillance camera sales by 2014. This can be compared to network cameras’ share of global sales in 2012, which amounted to approximately 40 percent, according to IHS Research.
