Digital Video Recorder Market Analysis by Market Players, Size, Share, Growth Rate, Opportunities, Drivers, and Risk Factor Forecast to 2025

North America is presumed to lead the growth trajectory of the global market with a dominant share over the next few years. Increasing adoption of innovative technologies for the management of digital evidence by law enforcement is likely to propel market expansion in the nearby future.

A digital video recorder (DVR) is an electronic device that records video in a digital format to a hard disk drive (HDD), solid state drive (SSD), USB flash drive, SD card, or other mass storage devices. Digital video recorders include set-top-boxes, television sets, personal computers, camcorders, and media players with recording capability. Digital video recorders are used mainly for entertainment and security and surveillance applications. Fast data retrieval, less storage space requirement, and high image quality are a few of the advantages of digital video recorders over traditional video recorders.

Change in consumer preference toward watching movies and TV shows at their own time is boosting demand for digital video recorders. Demand for television digital video recorders is rising with an emerging trend of on-demand entertainment. Increased digitization of television broadcasts and increased demand for high-definition (HD) videos is driving the digital video recorder market.

Time-shifting and Ad-skipping features

   Time-shifting and ad-skipping features are the main drivers of the adoption of DVRs. Using the time-shifting feature, the viewer can record and watch videos at any time, as well as rewind and play recorded videos. The ad-skipping feature allows viewers to fast-forward through commercials.

Digitization of Television Broadcasting Provides the Foundation for DVR Market Growth

      DVR market is majorly driven by the use of DVR systems in police patrol vehicles and law enforcement. The video footage is used for training new officers to reinforce appropriate behavior and track down license plates of law offenders. Rising demand for such vehicles are expected to witness steady growth over the forecast period for new as well as replacement of the present outdated cameras.

Factors like intense competition, rapid advances in technology, and frequent changes in consumer preferences pose significant challenges for the manufacturers in this market. Dual high and low-res video streams mean never sacrifice the quality of recorded video for the privilege of streaming live. Single-channel DVRs have the capability to record only the view through the windshield, whereas dual-channel DVRs have the ability to collect all-round evidence in case of accidents since they can record incidents that occur in the vehicle’s passenger room, along with the rear window. However, lack of skilled personnel is anticipated to restrict market growth in the years to come.
