This report covers the UK market for CCTV, including sales and rental income.
Closed circuit television is a surveillance technique that uses cameras to capture and transmit visual information over a closed circuit through electrically conducting cable or wireless transmitter and receiver.
Since its introduction, CCTV has evolved from cameras and recorders that were connected to each other to monitor a limited area, to systems that are no longer closed in their operation. CCTV is therefore increasingly being replaced by the term ‘video surveillance’.
CCTV and video surveillance systems can now cover larger areas, operate through remote monitoring and recording and be integrated with other security equipment applications.
The CCTV equipment sector includes the following categories, although due to a lack of official data no breakdown can be provided for the individual sectors:
- Charge Coupled Device (CCD) camera
- Digital Signal Processing (DSP) cameras
- Dome cameras
- Lenses, including fixed focal length and zoom
- Control equipment, including sequential switchers, telemetry transmitters and receivers, squad splitters and multiplexers
- Time lapse recorders
- Digital recorders
- Internet Protocol (IP) enabled equipment and systems
- Ancillary equipment, including pan and tilt heads, camera housings and infra-red lamps.
All market and industry statistics up to 2014 are quoted at actual prices for the year and therefore include inflation. Forecasts for 2015 onwards are made at 2014 prices and therefore exclude inflation. With such a high level of industry fragmentation it is not possible to review all the companies in a report of this type. This report is not a directory of industry participants, and the following provides a synopsis of some of the operators selected as being representative of a cross sample of types of operator rather than necessarily the largest industry participants.
