Night vision surveillance cameras
Night vision (IR) surveillance cameras are used for surveillance in poor lighting conditions such as fog or during the night, using infrared technology. Some of the major applications of these infrared night vision cameras include; continuous monitoring of critical assets, face recognition, threat detection, and traffic management.
The demand for secured access, secured borders, and secured living premises is a strong driver for the growth of night vision surveillance cameras around the globe. Night vision (IR) cameras not only enable round-the-clock monitoring, but also keep unwanted elements away during the day and as well as at night.
Night Vision (IR) cameras play a key role in the public sector and military segment and this area is anticipated to have a large market share as these cameras are used on a large scale to trace unwanted or suspicious human or vehicle movement. Governments’ encouragement of a greater role for technology in fighting against crime and terror has further boosted the demand, along with the growing trend for smart homes and smart construction.
The night vision feature of surveillance cameras plays a lead role in video analytics and intelligent imaging systems, which are used for dynamic video capture for commercial purposes such as; traffic monitoring, industrial monitoring, and population monitoring.
With an increase in the overall levels of competition among leading night vision (IR) surveillance camera manufacturers in terms of developing unique designs according to usage with do-it-yourself (DIY) capabilities, consumers are getting better access to advanced technologies at reasonable prices.
On the basis of shapes, the night vision (IR) surveillance cameras market is categorised as; box cameras, dome cameras, and bullet cameras.
On the basis of types, the night vision (IR) surveillance cameras market is categorised as; fixed cameras and PTZ (pan, tilt, and zoom) cameras.
End-use segments of the night vision (IR) surveillance cameras market include; public sector and defence, retail, transportation, industrial, stadiums, business organisations, and others.
In the coming years, demand from emerging regional markets such as Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa (MEA) is anticipated to drive the growth of the night vision (IR) surveillance cameras market. Some of the players involved in offering solutions or services related to night vision (IR) surveillance cameras are FLIR Systems, Axis Communications AB, Robert Bosch GmbH, Pelco Corporation, Raytheon Company, BAE Systems plc. L-3 Communications Holdings, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., and Hikvision Digital Technology Co., Ltd.
