India’s smart home security camera market shipments grew 76% YoY in 2022 and 49% YoY in Q4 2022 (October-December), according to the latest research from Counterpoint’s Smart Home IoT Service. Throughout 2022, the market saw a boom in demand due to increased consumer awareness and aggressive pricing strategies of companies. Due to the holiday season and the introduction of several new models in the 2MP, 3MP and 4MP categories, the market increased by more than 66% YoY in H2 2022.

Research Analyst Varun Gupta said, “In a price-sensitive market such as India, the entry-level price point of smart cameras (INR 1,500 or ~$18) also creates a big demand pull. Shipments in the INR 2,500-INR 3,000 price band remained the highest in 2022, capturing 47% share. The discount offers around Diwali further pushed the sales in 2022. As safety remains a prime concern among consumers, the market is expected to perform well in 2023 as well. Smart cameras are gaining more popularity among small and medium retailers as they are less expensive and easy to install.”

Commenting from the brand perspective, Gupta said, “We expect the market to remain consolidated in 2023, even though the top three brands currently capture a combined share of 63%. We saw new brands entering the market in 2022, which increased the competition and brought down the average selling price (ASP). In terms of features, the 2MP camera remains popular among users, but we expect the 3MP camera to gain more traction as it is becoming more affordable. Though the market remains online driven (more than 60%), the offline market has started to gain traction in the past year through efforts from major brands, especially CP Plus which has a significant offline distribution channel.”

Looking at the market segmentation, Senior Research Analyst Anshika Jain said, “The indoor smart security camera accounted for more than 75% of the total shipments, mainly driven by increased awareness and importance of indoor home security. Even residential developers are increasingly installing smart camera devices due to the hybrid work model.
