Retail Sector Video Security Trends Report 2021


A market study of video surveillance systems in the retail sector

Ava's Retail Sector Video Security Trends Report 2021 finds that, despite the severe reduction of physical store-based sales over the last year, retail groups have continued to find new money for improving video security systems. These improvements are part of a suite of process and system changes which retailers are now making to help reassure customers and staff alike of the COVID Safety of their stores and find badly-needed loss prevention and security management efficiencies.

Nearly 80% of retailers we reached in this study are considering VSaaS as a route to upgrading their existing video security system.
