Body-Worn Camera Market Trends

The surge in the usage of electronic devices and industrial applications is driving the market growth.

Market CAGR for body-worn cameras is driven by the increased adoption of body-worn cameras in various applications in sports and adventure segments. They are being used by goalies, catchers, referees, and umpires for the live recording of the sport, and skydivers, skiers, surfers, and riders for recording and sharing the adventurous moments with the rapidly expanding popularity of these cameras and the increasing interest of people in sports and adventurous activities. Also, the increasing need for consumers to track fitness and digitize medical records has increased demand for medical wearable camera devices. Body-worn cameras embedded with other software and hardware can determine nutrition facts and categorize food types via image processing techniques. These features offered by the device are anticipated to influence the industry positively.

Additionally, technological advancements have long since introduced cameras embedded in our smartphones; introducing wearable cameras has taken the technology to new heights. In the past few years, the US has recorded significant growth in the wearable camera market. Companies such as Narrative, Sony, and Panasonic are designing camera-equipped glasses and smaller life-logging devices that clip on outfits and allow hands-free documentation of the lives of surfers, snowboarders, and rock climbers. Continuous innovations have led to the introduction of compact and easily attachable cameras that can be used in extreme situations where it is impossible to hold traditional cameras or recorders. Internet connectivity and high-speed data network have significantly extended the capabilities of wearable cameras, enhancing market penetration on a scale and value share accumulation in an array of industry verticals. In the medical and security sectors, lack of trust, data breaches, and criticality drive the growth of the body-worn camera market revenue.

Facial recognition is expected to assist law enforcement agencies in evidence management and public reassurance by providing real-time updates or notifications regarding any suspicious activity or person caught. The London Police have already implemented facial recognition-enabled body-worn cameras, which help identify illegal immigrants, counter-terrorism, and increase national security. Thus, integrating facial recognition technology in body-worn cameras is anticipated to present a lucrative opportunity for the players working in the body-worn camera market during the forecast period.

Additionally, the recorded videos can help uncover facts and facilitate the quicker resolution of complex issues. Wearable cameras are also useful in covering areas covertly, which is particularly important in localities or areas where there is an evident lack of trust and confidence in law enforcement authorities. In such cases, the video documentation of events can prove accounts articulated by officers and community residents.
