Detailed in the report is how Hikvision occupies 19.5% market share for the global CCTV & video surveillance equipment market in 2015, up from their already dominant 16.3% in 2014. Furthermore, the company has claimed No.1 market share position in almost every individual equipment category, including network cameras, analog and HD CCTV cameras, DVR/NVRs, and video encoders.
