Genetec highlighted that according to the latest report of the research organization Omdia, it continued to increase its global market share, outpacing the market growth in the categories of VMS and Windows-based recorders.
The report also revealed that this brand maintained its position as a global market share leader, recording the highest growth among the top five software manufacturers in the world.
Genetec increased its leadership as the leading VMS provider in the Americas, with a 21.6% market share (compared to 19.6% the previous year). According to its Video Surveillance & Analytics Market Share Database – 2021 report, Omdia recognized Genetec as a global leader (excluding China) in VMS with a market share of 17.4%, up from 16.0% last year. The company attributes its continued growth to the strength of its unified security platform, Security Center, recurring revenue from its enterprise cloud solutions, as well as a determined focus on cybersecurity and privacy.
"While the global video surveillance software market remained flat in 2020, Genetec demonstrated a trend of continuous and sustained growth," said Oliver Philippou, Research Manager, Physical Security Technologies, Omdia. "Genetec was once again ranked as the number one developer in the video surveillance software market, in addition to achieving second place in global sales of Windows-based recorders."
In the category of Windows-based recorders, Genetec demonstrated the highest market growth globally.
"During the pandemic, when organizations needed to reinvent themselves and adapt to the new reality very quickly, companies became creative about how to use, redistribute and expand their security systems in their organizations. With a unified security platform that links video surveillance with access control, ALPR, analytics and more, our customers were able to expand the role of physical security to go beyond traditional applications and deliver more value and improve operations, without requiring massive investments," said Guy Chenard, Chief Commercial Officer of Genetec, Inc.
