Growing Trend of Deep Learning in Video Surveillance Software

Deep learning is the fastest-growing application of artificial intelligence. There is a substantial availability of deep learning algorithms and deep learning infrastructure for pattern analysis to the surveillance industry. The new versions of graphic processing units (GPUs) offered by vendors such as Nvidia Corporation provides deep learning algorithms for cameras and recorders. The capabilities of deep learning technology to facilitate video analytics and reduced calibration of algorithms drive a huge leap in the future use of video surveillance software. As a result, deep learning in surveillance systems is currently trending in the market.

Integration of Video Analytics in a Network Camera is Gaining Momentum

In recent years, there is a growing trend of video analytics integration in network cameras. As advanced microprocessors are becoming available to the video surveillance system manufacturers, there is a substantial increase in the integration of analytics capabilities with the cameras. Surveillance using cameras integrated with intelligent analytics facilitates early detection and identification of criminal events. Owing to the advancements in analytics crowd detection, people-counting, facial recognition, automated number plate detection, and other such technologies can be easily incorporated with the surveillance software. As a result, the integration of video analytics with network cameras would contribute to expanding the video surveillance market size in the coming years.


Emergence of AI Surveillance Technology Would Ensure to Drive Growth

Artificial intelligence technology has gained traction in recent years. According to a paper published by Carnegie Endowment for the International Peace Organization, in 2019, out of a total of 176 countries, 75 countries are actively leveraging artificial intelligence capabilities for surveillance purposes including facial recognition systems, smart cities, and others. This data reflects that the growing smart city initiatives & developments and facial recognition applications are likely to drive the adoption of surveillance systems using cameras during the forecast period.

Growing Adoption of Body-worn Cameras Across Several Industries such as Healthcare & Retail to Drive Growth

The increasing use of body-worn cameras by the security forces or law enforcement agencies has led to an adoption of these cameras across other industries such as healthcare and retail. Body-worn cameras have several benefits in industries such as healthcare, retail, and hospitality to improve customer relations, enhance workforce protection, and help prevent unusual activities. A body-worn camera enables the employees to capture real-time events and send real-time threat alerts and notifications to the security authorities.

Hence, considering the above-mentioned factors, the video surveillance market players are integrating body-worn cameras and video analytics capabilities to address the requirements of the end-users. For instance, in March 2020, Avigilon Corporation, a Motorola Solutions company, announced the integration of its video analytics and security portfolio of VideoTag enterprise bodyworn cameras and Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management tools.


Outbreak of Pandemic COVID-19 has Led to a Severe Downturn in the Global Market

The production of video surveillance equipment is majorly concentrated in China. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in December 2019 in Wuhan, China is exhibiting a reduced production because of the lack of man-power. Also, the local demand for video-surveillance products is likely to decline as all the governments across the world are focusing on pandemic control. The countries and cities are under lockdown across several major regions such as North America, Asia Pacific, and others. It is likely to affect the domestic and cross-border transportation and logistics of the equipment such as CMOS sensors, system-on-chip devices, and others. If the spread of this pandemic is controlled, it would ensure to have a significant impact on the market. However, if the COVID- 19 pandemic continues to spread, then it is likely to restrict this market growth in medium to long-term of the forecast period.


By Component Analysis

Surveillance Hardware Segment Ensures to Hold a Major Share in the Market

Based on component, this market has been segmented into hardware, software, and video surveillance as a service (VSaaS). The hardware segment is expected to account for a major video surveillance market share during the forecast period. Despite the high cost, there is a growing demand for advanced hardware with embedded video analytics solutions and deep-learning applications. The research and development investments by the software startups, surveillance systems vendors, and chip manufacturers have boosted the advancements in hardware.

By Camera Analysis

IP Camera is Anticipated to Have a Growing Demand in the Coming Years

The camera segment in this market is further categorized into hybrid camera, analog camera, and IP camera. The hybrid camera sub-segment is expected to have a significant share in the global video surveillance market.

The hybrid security camera system is based on the digital video recorder (DVR). Hybrid surveillance cameras consist of high megapixel image sensors, interchangeable lenses, and use organic light emitting diodes (OLED) or liquid crystal display (LCD) screens. Some of the market players such as Panasonic Corporation are offering a comprehensive product portfolio of hybrid cameras which includes the Lumix GH4 series and HD camcorder HC-W580 series. These cameras are also capable to record 4K videos and can be used for several cases including surveillance. All these above factors are likely to fuel the demand for hybrid surveillance cameras.

Similarly, the analog cameras are ideal for those industries that require pan–tilt–zoom camera (PTZ camera) surveillance continuously. Analog cameras are generally used in the traditional CCTV camera systems. These cameras have a limited resolution and can only cover a limited site range, due to which analog cameras are expected to observe a steady growth rate. The advantage of an analog camera over an IP camera is that the former performs better in low light conditions. Market players such as Pelco offer Spectra Analog V cameras. These cameras encompass a wide range, low light capabilities, and can withstand in -40 degree Celsius to 60-degree Celsius temperature.

Furthermore, IP cameras are likely to showcase an increasing demand during the forecast period. Cisco Systems, Inc. offers video surveillance cameras. These cameras exhibit high-quality video capabilities and efficient network utilization. Similarly, Honeywell International, Inc. provides performance series IP cameras including micro domes IP cameras, IP bullet cameras, and many others. These cameras provide affordable surveillance solutions to cater to the security demands of the end-users.

By Software Analysis

Video Analytics Software is Likely to Have Unprecedented Growth in the Coming Years

The software segment is further divided into video management software and video analytics software. Video management software enable users to view multiple camera footage, manage camera and recording settings, and set alerts for motion detection and unusual activities. For instance, Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. provides Easy4ip, a cloud-based video management software for small scale enterprises or as a mobile application. In December 2019, Avigilon Corporation announced the upgrade of its video management software Avigilon Control center (ACC) 7.4. The upgraded version incorporates facial recognition technology based on the applications of artificial intelligence.

Video analytics software for surveillance cameras is projected to experience a significant growth rate in the coming years. Deploying advanced video analytics software is likely to create lucrative market opportunities for surveillance systems to deliver actionable insights and hindsight across a range of use cases. Video analytics software features can be integrated with the existing video management software (VMS). Honeywell International Inc. offers a wide range of video analytics solutions including active alert and Alarm Management Server (AMS) for video analytics.
