Global Statistics Representing Video Content Analytics Market Scenario

Video Content Analysis (VCA) helps in the detection of moving objects to determine the size and length/width ratio of the object. Based on this information, the system can identify the object and be used to determine whether it is a human, an animal or a vehicle. As such, video content analytics is an automated process to see objects and activities and then assign meaning to them. This technical system is widely used in the security industry for better situational awareness, public safety, infrastructure, and transport and to improve business intelligence. Video analytics can detect a variety of events, in real-time, and immediately alert operators accordingly. With the use of video content analytics, systems can help pinpoint a security breach by analyzing movement.

Government initiatives for safe cities, a requirement of advanced technology for public and transportation safety, demand for security products and reducing reliance on physical security are among the key factors driving the growth of the video content analytics market. Safe cities use a network of video surveillance cameras to protect city locations such as parks, streets, car parks, and other public areas. Also, governments and many public agencies around the world are using video surveillance with a special focus on women’s safety in public spaces and quick response systems to create deterrence against crime. As a result, the demand for video content analytics is growing due to such initiatives for the development of safe cities. For example, IBM Intelligent Video Analytics helps security and public safety organizations develop comprehensive security, intelligence and investigative capabilities using videos. In addition, surveillance operators or physical security are prone to fatigue over long monitoring periods, which increases the chances of an event being missed. Video content systems can help automate the monitoring process, removing the burden solely from physical security. Also, video analytics for business intelligence and retail sector are further supporting the growth of the video content analytics market.

A number of lucrative opportunities exist in the video content analytics market, mainly driven by the fact that real-time streams of rich video content are posing as a potential solution to many social, political, economic and industry security issues. However, the high system cost and lack of awareness may obstruct the growth of the video content analytics market. Even a modest office setup can cost thousands of dollars in upfront equipment costs. Also, without training or experience, actually making videos can be tricky in commercial use and newcomers in video production often end up making costly mistakes.
