IP or internet protocol camera is a type of Close Circuit Television Camera (CCTV) device, which is used in video surveillance. This device sends and receives recorded video footage by the IP protocol network. It is widely used in various surveillance activities such as road traffic monitoring, industrial operation monitoring, and domestic surveillance. An IP surveillance camera is rapidly replacing traditional CCTV cameras due to its various benefits. Unlike conventional CCTV, this IP surveillance camera does not require any type of physical recording device to record video, instead it just needs an internet connection to transfer footage.
An IP camera can be simply connected to a wired or wireless networks and transfer video to the operator’s device or directly store it on cloud storage space. These kinds of cameras capture videos and images in very high-definition format as high as 16 megapixels, depending upon the type of camera. This high-resolution image capturing property of an IP surveillance camera is helpful in capturing and recording moving objects. Moreover, the ongoing implementation of the Internet of Things in the residential and commercial sector is further increasing the demand for IP camera.
Rising Need to Monitor Patients Remotely Propelled Market Growth Amid the Pandemic
The electronic and semiconductor sector had been substantially affected due to exponential growth of COVID-19 all over the globe. The continuously fluctuating global economy rapidly changes the customer buying behavior and inclination toward the product which is expected to impact the global IP surveillance camera market during the forecast period. Various government authorities in the world had imposed global lockdowns, which majorly affected industrial production in various sectors. The global lockdown forced people to stay at home during the COVID-19 period, which is the main factor for reduction in demand for IP camera in the world. Furthermore, COVID-19 lockdowns resulted in sealing of country borders, which disturbed supply chain and distribution and hindered growth of the market globally.
However, COVID-19 outbreak affected many people and infected masses worldwide. Some of them had to get admitted in intensive care units or dedicated COVID-19 care wards at the same time. This exerted heavy pressure on healthcare professionals to monitor all patients at the same time. IP surveillance camera played a major role in this crisis. It helped doctors and healthcare professionals to keep surveillance on COVID-19 wards remotely. It also helped them analyze the condition of patients with the help of artificial intelligence features in the camera. This allowed them to take rapid action on the critical condition of patients, which is responsible for boosting the market globally.
