Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) System Market By Application (Security & Surveillance, Toll Enforcement, Vehicle Parking and Traffic Management), By End User (Government, Commercial) Market - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Landscape, 2016 - 2023

Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), also termed as automatic license plate recognition, is a method to read alphanumeric characters on license plate of vehicles by using optical character recognition method. ANPR is considered one of the most effective methods for tackling traffic issues. The overall system is divided into two phases; first one is to capture image of license plate and the second stage comprises image processing to recognize characters on the license plate with the help of software.

Automatic number plate recognition system is rapidly becoming a crucial part in maintaining security and order in traffic management. Apart from this, ANPR are also applied for many applications such as car park management, journey time analysis, weighbridges as well as automatic tolling system. A typical ANPR comprises two main components. The first component is the image acquiring camera, which captures the image of license plate of automobile. The latter is computer equipped with number plate recognition software that processes the captured image.

Most common application of ANPR is in law enforcement department for effective traffic management.With the overall rising illegal activities such as motor vehicle theft and over speeding, the demand for ANPR system is estimated to remain strong in the coming years. In addition, the market growth is estimated owing to the increasing efforts by the market players towards product enhancement. ANPR manufacturers are striving to develop an improved system to capture images even in hostile conditions such as motion blur, defocusing blur, poor lighting and severe angles. Consequently, the market has emerged quite competitive over the past few years. Strong players are focuse on automation of the services such as automatic toll collection, automatic car park system and automatic gas station services.

Automatic Number Plate Recognition(ANPR) System Market

The ANPR system is used across various applications such as automobile security and surveillance, toll enforcement, vehicle parking along with traffic management. Amongst these, the security and surveillance is the largest segment, in terms of revenue of the overall ANPR systems market worldwide. The segment is also among the fastest growing applications ANPR system, making it the most lucrative segment in the coming years.

The overall demand for ANPR system is estimated to remain slow in the toll management segment, majorly due to growing adoption of automated toll collection system. In addition, the segment has less penetration of ANPR system and is still dependent upon employing humans for toll collection, especially in the developing economies. Further, the automated parking sector is estimated to witness strong growth during the forecast period. With smart utilization of space by applying multistoried parking facility, the sector may emerge lucrative for the overall ANPR system industry in the coming years.

The global automatic number plate recognition market is segmented, based on its end-user, into following categories

  • Government
    • Traffic department
    • Defense
    • Homeland security
  • Commercial

Automatic Number Plate Recognition(ANPR) System Market

ANPR system is being adopted both by government as well as commercial sector for a variety of applications. Within the government segment, ANPR system is employed majorly for the homeland security. Due to rising instances related to theft as well as transit crimes, this segment is estimated to exhibit high growth in the forthcoming years. Governments of countries such as the U.S., the U. K., Germany, France and others have adopted ANPR systems for security, surveillance, law enforcement and defense application. Consequently, a consistent growth in overall ANPR system market of the aforementioned countries is expected in forthcoming years.

The overall demand for ANPR system in commercial sector is estimated to follow the government sector. Commercial sector in developing cities are adopting ANPR system for effective vehicle management. In addition, automatic number plate recognition systems are also being installed for dedicated car parks. With growing commercial sectors and increasing demand for effective car parking system, ANPR system have been adopted in recent times. Consequently, these factors are expected to spur the overall automatic number plate recognition market during the forecast period.
