How Much Is The Number Plate Recognition Market Worth
According to the latest market study released by Technavio, the global automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) market is projected to grow to USD 1,112.5 million by 2021, at a CAGR of nearly 13% over the forecast period.
This research report titled ‘Global Automatic Number Plate Recognition Market 2017-2021’ provides an in-depth analysis of the market in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. This market research report also includes up to date analysis and forecasts for various market segments and all geographical regions.
Automated number plate recognition (ANPR) system is an optical character recognition (OCR) system, which is implemented using cameras and software to analyze the captured pictures. The increasing need to ensure security and curb attacks, issues, and threats is creating a high demand for ANPR systems.
Based on the applications, the report categorizes the global automatic number plate recognition market into the following segments:
The top three revenue-generating application segments in the global ANPR market are discussed below:
“The surveillance sector occupied nearly two-fifth of the automatic number plate recognition market in 2016, and is expected to grow at a moderate rate through the forecast period,” says Amrita Choudhury, a lead analyst at Technavio for M2M and connected devices research.
Surveillance is mainly used by law enforcement agencies to detect, deter, and disrupt criminal activities, including tackling organized crime groups and terrorists. Surveillance is usually carried out by recording vehicle movements in a network of numerous cameras, storing the captured data, and use it to analyze incidences for investigation.
Toll management of the global ANPR market is expected to grow swiftly, due to the high adoption of these systems in both developed and developing countries. The ANPR systems not only eliminate or reduce the need for human interaction but also increase the efficiency of toll booths. There are numerous toll collection booths, which combine radio frequency identification and ANPR systems. Some of the countries which have implemented ANPR system for toll management include the US, Australia, Spain, South Korea, New Zealand, Ireland, and Israel.
“Traffic management is expected to be the fastest-growing application segment of the automatic number plate recognition market, due to its wide adoption in developed and developing countries to streamline traffic flow in cities,” says Amrita.
CCTV cameras are used in combination with ANPR systems to give real-time data to traffic control centers, allowing them to manage the traffic effectively. ANPR systems are mainly used to track and monitor the travel information of individual vehicles, which helps in analyzing the speed and flow of vehicles in various routes.
How close a series of letters or numbers are to a real name of word: if the match quality is high (and the numbers and letters are very convincing in making a popular word), the value of the registration plate will be higher. This means that a match like 5IMON, for the name Simon, will be worth a lot more than a more obscure set of letters and numbers that are not as convincing a match, such as S17 MMM for the name Sam.
The style of the plate: this means establishing if it is a new-style plate, an older-style format or if it is dateless or Irish, for instance. Other options are that it is a prefix-style plate or a suffix-style plate. New-style number plates, which have been produced since 2001, tend to be the least valuable because they are a bit less appealing to some collectors, plus the rule about not having plates that are newer than your car can also come into play, putting people off from buying a newer-style plate for their older car. Prefix-style number plates, which were in production between 1983 and 2001 can be more popular as more vehicles are entitled to have those licence numbers, and they may have fewer characters in total. Suffix-style plates, issued from 1963 to 1983 are relatively rare, which means they can attract higher prices than prefix-style plates and newer designs. Dateless number plates, also known as cherished number plates, were produced between 1903 and 1963 and are nearly always the most valuable number plate configurations; they have fewer digits and their dateless nature means that people can hide the age of their car. Irish number plates are similar to dateless number plates, especially because they don’t have a year identifier. They also tend to be cheaper than other types of vehicle registration plates.
