Increasing Deployment of AI-enabled Video Analytics Solutions Aids Market Growth

The deployment of AI-enabled video content analysis solutions is rapidly increasing around the world. Government bodies are actively opting for AI-based video systems to monitor traffic congestion and oversee smart energy metering using the AI Global Surveillance (AIGS) Index for greater clarity of videos. AI and deep learning are the key technologies for video content analysis and for transforming live or recorded videos into structured metadata that offer quantifiable insights. In addition, face recognition technologies are being speedily adopted to support video-based data analytics and enhance face matching to serve several end-use applications. With the need for high-resolution videos rising, face recognition solutions are becoming more accurate and are being increasingly used for high-end video processing.

AI-enabled video analytics offers a wide range of solutions such as:

  • Human Action Recognition

  • Anomaly Detection

  • Contextual Understanding

  • Emotion Recognition

  • Wide Area Surveillance

  • Video Search & Summarization


Rising Demand for Real-Time Event Detection to Fuel the Market

Video analytics software is beneficial for providing instantaneous alerts that occur around a wide range of business sectors to enhance situational awareness. Generation of real-time data through videos requires appropriate and professional handling. Video analysis software can help in analyzing live or recorded video streams to detect, classify, and track behavior patterns and predefined objects, thus becoming a key market driving factor. For instance, in March 2018, Agent Vi launched its video analytics solution, "innoVi". The aim is to offer self-learning anomaly detection capabilities to alert and detect irregular incidents. The software automates the video monitoring process that is effective in proactively identifying incidents as they occur and extract information from the recorded or live video.

High-performance capabilities of real-time video content analytics can aid the transformation of standard surveillance networks into intelligent and efficient detection and alert systems relating to vehicles, people, or static objects. Each private/public or government organization deploys its network links between cloud, clusters, and IP cameras with varying bandwidths to compute large-scale videos for better analytics. Real-time event detection has helped in minimizing crimes, thefts, and other criminal activities while improving entire social situations and international trade climate, thus bolstering the market growth globally.


Lack of Necessary Database Infrastructure & Latent Security Threats May Impede Market Growth

Large-scale video analytics solutions are integrated with large databases, infrastructures, and surveillance systems to offer sophisticated automated identification and tracking systems. Inappropriate database infrastructure leads to inept data logs that bring inaccuracies in video processing and tracking processes. Depletion of extensive database infrastructure occurs during financial crises in the IT sector in both developing and developed economies, as emerging enterprises seek efficiencies and increase operational charges and security standards.

Shipping ports face reputational risks related to asset theft, smuggling, damage to cargo, and terrorist attacks that have a debilitating commercial impact on the global supply chain carried out via marine transportation. In addition, the lack of well-designed database infrastructure for video analysis solutions limits accurate image and video analysis while depending on the sensors and their range of the optical spectrum. Such factors are expected to restrain global market growth during the forecast period.
