The global video surveillance market is likely to gain momentum from the increasing usage of deep learning technology. It helps in lowering calibration of algorithms and facilitating video analytics. Therefore, it is capable of driving the usage of video surveillance software in the near future. This information is given in a recently published report by Fortune Business Insights™, titled, “Video Surveillance Market Size, Share COVID-19 ImpactAnalysis, ByComponent (Hardware, Software, and Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS)), By End-User (Commercial, Industrial, Residential and Government), and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026.”.The report further mentions that that the market size was USD 19.12 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 33.60 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period.
Increasing Smart City Initiatives to Skyrocket Demand
The rising adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) worldwide is one of the major video surveillance market growth drivers. The Carnegie Endowment for the International Peace Organization published a paper in 2019 which states that out of the total 176 countries, 75 of them are using AI for surveillance purposes, such as smart citing, facial recognition systems, and more. It proves that the rising development of facial recognition applications and smart city initiatives by several regions would contribute to the market growth.
Industry Segment to Grow Significantly Owing to Security Issues in Manufacturing Sector
Based on end user, the market is segregated into government, residential, industrial, and commercial. Out of these, the industrial segment held 21.4% market share in 2018 for this market. This sector consists of the automobile industry, manufacturing construction industry, and others. The manufacturing industry is mainly susceptible to a broad range of security issues, namely, theft of raw materials, such as steel, copper wires, and optical fibres, as well as expensive machines. Vandalism is also a major threat. Hence, video surveillance systems are required to conduct organized surveillance throughout the plant.
Asia Pacific to Remain at the Forefront Stoked by High Government Initiatives in China
Geographically, the market is divided into Latin America, North America, the Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Amongst these, Asia Pacific held USD 10.58 billion in terms of market revenue in 2018. The region is anticipated to lead in the forthcoming period. This growth is attributable to the participation of China. The Chinese government is taking various initiatives to promote the utilization of such surveillance equipment. For instance, in 2017, it announced the completion of the ‘Skynet’ video surveillance program. It further helped in creating one of the largest surveillance networks worldwide. North America is set to grow significantly backed by the increasing adoption of these systems in many countries.
