Mobile Video Surveillance Market By End Users (Transit and Rail, Law Enforcement, First Responders) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2017 – 2025

Transport authorities, governments, and companies are on the continuous hunt for more flexible and convenient video surveillance technologies in order to ensure effective protection from theft, vandalism, fraud, and terrorism. Mobile video surveillance is based on the concept of facilitating real-time monitoring of live video feeds using smartphones and tablets. Accessing video surveillance feeds through mobile devices greatly helps enhance public safety and security by ensuring timely intervention in case of any unwanted incidents. The live video feed can be easily accessed using smartphones, tablets, or laptops connected to an internet network. This makes mobile video surveillance a more viable solution as compared to conventional video surveillance systems.

Over the last few years, there has been an increase in the deployment of video surveillance systems on mass transit vehicles. Mobile video surveillance systems are becoming increasingly popular in public transportation, with the goal of improving the security and safety of those who use them. Mobile video surveillance uses a combination of interior and exterior cameras, depending on the vehicle type. The functionality of interior cameras involves monitoring passengers and personnel and thereby providing valuable information to counter crime and liability claims from both customers and personnel. The role of exterior cameras is to facilitate the monitoring of vehicle operations and deliver video evidence in the event of an accident. Most mobile video surveillance systems support high definition (HD) and capture video at anywhere between 20 and 30 frames per second. The captured videos are saved on a digital video recorder (DVR) and can thus be used in the future.

The overall growth of the mobile video surveillance market can be primarily attributed to the growing safety and security concerns in various countries. The majority of commercial as well as government organizations have perpetually increased their spending on video surveillance systems. With the rising penetration of smartphones and mobile applications, mobile video surveillance has emerged as one of the most promising solutions for addressing security concerns. IP cameras, which offer better functionality at a lesser price, have witnessed a consistent demand for mobile video surveillance purposes. This factor has further contributed to the market's growth.

The adoption of body-worn video cameras by police forces is one of the current trends in the mobile video surveillance market. The growing popularity of body-worn cameras has further facilitated the use of mobile video surveillance. Body-worn cameras, in addition to facilitating mobility, allow for the recording of an event as seen by a police officer. Moreover, the application of drones by police forces in order to extend surveillance coverage is another trend witnessed in the mobile video surveillance market. Police forces in various countries, such as the U.K. and the U.S., have already adopted drones for surveillance. Increased adoption of HD video cameras is another popular trend in the market. 1080p cameras are increasingly being adopted as they provide a detailed video clip of an incident. Several companies have recently released 1080p mobile video surveillance cameras.

Some of the major players profiled in the report are Axis Communications AB, BriefCam Ltd., Bosch Security Systems, Inc., Apollo Video Technology, LLC, Seon Design, Inc., Siemens AG, Pro-Vigil, Inc., Strongwatch Corporation, Maxxess Systems, Inc., Rosco Vision Systems, LLC, and Safety Vision, LLC, among others.

On the basis of end-users, the global mobile video surveillance market is segmented into the following categories:

Transit and Rail

  • Buses
  • Trams
  • Ships
  • Trains

Law Enforcement

  • First Responders
  • Others (personal vehicles, drones, etc.)

In 2016, the overall mobile surveillance market worldwide was led by the transit and rail segment. The segment contributed to over a third of the total market value in 2016. The transit and rail segment growth is primarily attributed to growing efforts across various countries to improve public safety. As a result of rising terrorism and vandalism threats, the need for general transportation system surveillance has grown in recent years. Law enforcement and school transportation segments follow transit and rail in terms of value. Police officers in various countries have adopted drones for mobile video surveillance purposes, a move that has enabled them to extend surveillance coverage. This factor has positively impacted the law enforcement segment's growth.

The school transportation segment's growth is expected to be significant during the forecast period. Schools around the world are focusing more on improving student safety. This has been a result of the growing instances of attacks on schools in countries such as the U.S., India, and others. Schools have always been an easy target for terrorists and criminals. This, in turn, is expected to bolster the adoption of mobile video surveillance technologies in school transportation.
