LUND, Sweden -- June 18, 2013

Regulatory News:

Axis Communications (STO:AXIS) retains its global market-leading position in
network cameras and security cameras and has also taken first place in video
encoders. This is shown in a new report from information and analytics firm
IHS.

“We have further strengthened our position due to our long-term strategy of
continuous releases of innovative network video products and the fact that we
offer high-quality security solutions in a global market in conjunction with
our loyal partners,” says Ray Mauritsson, President of Axis Communications.

“IHS estimates continued high market growth, however, slightly lower than
previously, over the next five years. IHS also indicates the market today is
more fragmented, with many vendors offering network video products for
security solutions.”

Axis is still ranked number one and is global market leader in the network
cameras and security cameras categories. The security cameras category
includes both analog cameras and network cameras. Last year, Axis further
strengthened its market position by taking first place in the video encoders
category, a video encoder is a product that is connected to an analog camera,
which makes it possible to use the advantages of a network solution.

According to IHS, network cameras will account for more than 50 percent of
global surveillance camera sales by 2014. This may be compared to network
cameras’ share of global sales in 2012, which amounted to approximately 40
percent, according to IHS Research.
