Many end-users took advantage of facilities being closed, to upgrade their software solutions

Many end-users took advantage of facilities being closed, to upgrade their software solutions. This focus on upgrading software led to end-users re-evaluating their entire back-end architectures.

This resulted in greater use of cloud in architectures and increased spending on software managed services. These factors contributed to acceleration in the proportion of revenues from recurring spending. The report forecasts high average annual growth of 12.1% in the world, excluding market from 2020 to 2025 period.

Jon Cropley adds, “Software continues to be a key differentiator in video surveillance system functionality and will continue to offer these and other suppliers high revenue growth opportunities in future years. Furthermore, the bounds of what is classified as video surveillance software, continues to expand with additional and sometimes specialist functionality, brought about by integrations of video analytics and other sensors.”
