U.S video analytics for traffic management sees remarkable growth

San Francisco, Ca (USA)

According to recent reports from Grand View Research Inc. the market for video-based automatic incident detection is witnessing remarkable growth, with emerging countries across the world increasingly recognising their value in enhancing road safety and traffic management. These solutions leverage advanced video analytics technologies to monitor roadways in real time, detect incidents such as accidents and congestion, and facilitate prompt response measures. In the U.S. alone the researchers expect the market size to reach USD 107.2 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 18.1% from 2024 to 2030.

As urbanisation and motorisation rates continue to rise, governments and regulatory authorities are issuing strict regulatory requirements for the adoption of efficient traffic management systems that can ensure the safety and well-being of travelers. For instance, In July 2022, the European Union implemented the Vehicle General Safety Regulation to improve road safety and monitor the functioning and safety of fully driverless vehicles in Europe. The primary goal of these regulations is to provide better protection for pedestrians, passengers, and cyclists across the region. According to the European Commission, these regulations are expected to save more than 25,000 lives and prevent around 140,000 serious injuries by 2038. Such initiatives are expected to boost the adoption of transportation technologies in the market, including video-based based automatic incident detection (AID) solutions.

U.S sees notable increase in fatal accidents

The U.S. faces significant challenges regarding traffic rule violations, traffic congestion, and road accidents. Over the past few years, there has been a notable increase in the number of fatal car crashes across the country. Between 2018 and 2021, the incidences of deadly accidents increased by over 16%, rising from 36,835 to 42,939 fatal car crashes in 2018 and 2021 respectively.

The application of video-based AID solutions offers real-time monitoring capabilities, enabling authorities to quickly detect incidents such as accidents, congestion, and road hazards. By promptly identifying and responding to these incidents, authorities can reduce the risk of secondary accidents and alleviate traffic congestion, ultimately improving road safety. Furthermore, government initiatives, coupled with positive investment trends in transportation technology, are also expected to strengthen the adoption of video-based automatic incident detection (AID) solutions.

Some of the prominent players in this market, and mentioned in this latest research include, Axis Communications, Dahua Technology, Efkon, Hikvision, Intellivision, Iteris, Miovision, Omnibond, Q-Free,  Bosch, Sensys, Teledyne Flir, Traficon, Vaaaninfra, Videonetics and Vivotek.
