Ray Mauritsson, President at Axis Communications, said: “A good performance in all three regions contributed to sales growth of 23 per cent during the third quarter. The period was characterized by very strong growth in Asia and EMEA, while demand in the Americas remains stable.
“In September, an access control system was presented on the market. By combining our technical know-how and strong partner network, we are now broadening our offer within network solutions. The release will initially take place in the US but the product will be introduced in other markets in the future.
“During the period, we continued to note a stable trend in the number of new project inquiries. We estimate that the underlying demand is in line with previous quarters.”
