The scalability offered by video surveillance-as-a-service to organizations allows them to scale up or down surveillance systems easily. Remote accessibility, cloud-based VSaaS provides remote access to surveillance footage, improving monitoring. Analytics & AI-based VSaaS solutions benefit from integrating analytics and AI, such as facial recognition, object detection, and others.

VSaaS is one of the fastest-growing verticals in the video surveillance market. Technology is advancing rapidly, security threats are increasing, and the demand for cost-effective, scalable video surveillance solutions is rising. Key trends boosting the market growth include Cloud VSaaS, one of the fastest-growing cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions. This is largely due to cloud-based solutions' scalability benefits, remote access capabilities, and low infrastructure costs. Cloud-based software as a service providers provide end-to-end solutions that are easy to deploy and implement for businesses of all sizes.

AI-driven analytics play an important role in improving video surveillance-as-a-service performance. AI-powered machine learning algorithms can quickly analyze video data, allowing for object recognition, anomaly detection, predictive maintenance, and more features. This trend is changing how video surveillance works by automating the monitoring and alerting processes. Connecting VSaaS to IoT: Integrating VSaaS and IoT opens up new opportunities for data-driven insights. IoT-enabled sensors, cameras, and intelligent analytics tools provide more comprehensive surveillance and security solutions.

Certain challenges hampering the market's growth include privacy concerns that comprise collecting large amounts of surveillance data, which gives rise to privacy concerns and may lead to regulatory issues. The VSaaS relies heavily on internet connectivity, which can be prone to outages, impacting surveillance capabilities. Bandwidth and storage concerns, large amounts of video data streaming and storing in the cloud strain network resources and lead to increased costs. Video data storage is one of the most important aspects of data security, and ensuring the protection, encryption, and secure access to this sensitive information is key to maintaining the integrity of surveillance systems and preventing unauthorized access.

Type Insights

Based on type, the hosted segment led the market and accounted for over 45% of the global revenue in 2022. The market for hosted video surveillance-as-a-service is growing rapidly due to advances in cloud technology, the need for remote monitoring solutions, and the need for scalable and affordable security solutions. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have been major contributors to the growth of this market as they often need more resources or know-how to set up and manage on-premises security solutions. VSaaS provides them with an affordable and easy-to-use alternative. Integration with the Internet of Things (IoT) and AI-hosted VSaaS vendors increasingly integrate IoT sensors and AI capabilities into their products. This enables more advanced video analytics, object recognition, and the automation of security processes.

The hybrid segment is predicted to witness significant growth over the forecast years. Hybrid video surveillance-as-a-service was becoming increasingly popular as a solution for businesses that wanted to combine the advantages of cloud-based surveillance with on-premises infrastructure. A hybrid VSaaS solution typically combines on-premises hardware (such as a camera, NVR, or DVR) with cloud-based remote access, storage, and management services. This approach enabled businesses to take advantage of existing infrastructure while also taking advantage of the scalability and availability of cloud services.

Vertical Insights

Based on vertical, the commercial segment led the market and accounted for over 37% of global revenue in 2022. Several factors drive this growth in the commercial sector owing to several advantages, such as cost-effectiveness, scalability, remote accessibility, and reduced maintenance. With sophisticated scalability with VSaaS, businesses can easily scale up or down their surveillance systems. They can add cameras and storage space as needed without large hardware upgrades. Video surveillance-as-a-service provides remote access to video streams and data via web and mobile apps. Business owners and security personnel can monitor their premises remotely with an internet connection. This improves overall security and awareness. Cloud-based surveillance systems have lower maintenance requirements than traditional on-premises systems. The VSaaS provider handles updates, patches, and system maintenance, reducing the workload of IT staff.
