The global network video recorder (NVR) market, estimated at $3.3 billion in 2022, is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.3% to $11.2 billion by the end of 2032, according to Fact.MR, a market research firm. 

Demand for NVRs is anticipated to increase due to the rising infrastructure and increased deployment of integrated network-based video surveillance systems over the coming years. Most of IP camera-enabled NVR systems have a life span of 8 to 10 years and offer advanced audio and video surveillance capabilities. 

Continual developments in NVRs owing to increased penetration of security surveillance devices in residential and industrial settings are driving market expansion, according to the report

Sales of NVRs are expected to increase at CAGRs of 12.5% and 14.5%, respectively, in North America and in East Asia. 

Among key takeaways from the NVR market study: 
  • During the assessment period (2022-2032), the technological type of NVR, the HD-IP segment, is expected to continue to be the most prominent in the market and reach $9.5 billion. 
  • Sales of NVRs increased at 7.8% CAGR between 2017 and 2021. 
  • Wired NVR systems are likely to exhibit increased deployment by 3x. 
  • In the hard drive category, the 2*4 TB sub-segment is expected to be highly lucrative and expand at a CAGR of 12.9%. 

The emerging trend of retail and online store surveillance and security across the world is providing consistency in demand to the market. The number of warehouses has increased, and for bulk material stored, it has become vital to have security surveillance as the presence of workers in warehouses is not possible to protect from any kind of theft. 

NVR systems are preferred as they have advanced attributes as compared to DVRs. For manufacturers, continuous developments in products will create the opportunity to increase their NVR sales. Moreover, market participants are developing integrated platforms, wherein NVRs can be connected through smartphones and PCs. 

Owing to organic growth strategies such as long-term collaborations with end users and replacement of DVRs with advanced NVRs, market players are able to capture a significant market share.
