The remaining three are Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.

Globally, physical security’s convergence with ICT infrastructure will drive growth in video and system analytics, hybrid deployment from Artificial Intelligence (AI) edge to AI cloud infrastructure and most importantly, will need to be increasingly supported by cybersecurity to protect privacy, accuracy and capability.
By 2021 the APAC market forecast for video management systems (VMS) is to double to $663M, with China demonstrating a much larger video channel concentration, with 250 and over channels and 1000 and over channels representing over a third of the total VMS license revenue.
