As public and personal safety win more and more attention nowadays, the global market of security camera will continue to maintain a high boom in the next few years, and the Chinese market is the main growth driver in this process. With the continuous promotion and deepening of policies and the increasing awareness of users in various industries such as transportation and education, the Chinese market of video surveillance will gradually extend from first-tier cities to second- and third-tier cities, and the market space for development is really huge.
In the past two years, China has gradually promoted the concept of a safe city. The HD digital camera has been widely used for traffic control and relative clue detection. Networked and high-definition cameras are the main development trends. At present, the first-tier cities have already completed the preliminary coverage, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, etc., and these cities only need to upgrade their high-definition, networked surveillance systems in the future. However, the second- and third-tier cities, especially cities in Western China, are still in the initial stage.
With the increase of people's safety awareness, the global market of security camera will continue to maintain a high boom for a long time. According to the forecast of IMS Research, a division of IHS, the operating income of the global market of video surveillance equipment will increase from $9.6 billion in 2010 to $20.5 billion in 2016, with an increase of 114%.
In recent years, efforts have been made to promote the construction of safe cities, and the market of video surveillance systems has gradually expanded from first-tier cities to second-tier and third-tier cities.
Taking the year of 2015 as an example, the document of "Opinions on Strengthening the Construction of Social Security Prevention and Control System" issued in April, 2015 focused on the gradual realization of the integration of video surveillance for both urban and rural areas. In May 2015, nine Ministerial Committees jointly launched a document of "Several Opinions on Public Security Video Surveillance Construction Network Application Work", which clearly requires the video surveillance network rate in key public areas reach 100% by 2020.
The rapid development of the market of video surveillance will continue to drive the demand for lenses of precision optical components.
In addition, the monitoring systems will not only be limited to the ground in the future, but will develop in a "three-dimensional", "high-altitude" or "panoramic" aspect, creating a ground-air integrated monitoring system, leading the security industry into a three-dimensional monitoring era.
In the future, the lenses of precision optics will be used more and more widely in the security field.
