Global ANPR System Market- Overview

Automatic Number Plate Recognition, or ANPR, is a technology that uses a camera to interpret and extract textual information from vehicle number/license plates. It further transfers the information to the computer processor in the ANPR-based application, which generates a database for interpreting and storing that information. The images are captured using CCTV or a camera installed in the area. This system is significantly used in traffic management, tolling, weighbridges, bus lane enforcement, car park management, etc. They also have in-built infrared lighting cameras to capture images in low-light conditions.

Global ANPR System Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rising Application of ANPR Systems in Traffic Management and Security & Surveillance will boost the Market

The adoption and installation of ANPR systems for traffic management and security & surveillance have grown significantly over the past few years. ANPR devices are commonly used for traffic control, as well as to track fraud, violence, and terrorist activities. These devices have shown a variety of advantages, such as tracking stolen cars, vehicles used in robberies, vehicles that have broken traffic laws, or vehicles that are operating with expired insurance. Developed regions like North America and Europe are constantly installing ANPR systems at various parking spaces for security and surveillance purposes.

Use of Cloud-Based System Is Propelling The ANPR Market

The increasing use of cloud-based software for the storage of the data collected by the ANPR system is contributing significantly to the growth of the ANPR market. When the ANPR directly stores the data in the cloud, it allows easy accessibility from different locations. Along with this advantage, it also proves to be cost-effective and provides better & high storage. Therefore, it is estimated that the cloud-based ANPR system will gain significant traction in the upcoming years.

Restraints

Different Layouts and Designs Of The Numeric Plate

Although the ANPR system is highly accurate, it is still lacking in some areas. One of the key disadvantages of this system is the mischaracterization of ambiguous characters on the license plate. Vehicle numbers and license plates are often personalized. It means they can be of various colors, fonts, and sizes. As a result, the system's algorithm may encounter some difficulties in capturing and interpreting the numbers on the plate. Furthermore, the parent country of the ANPR system also influences its algorithm as the licensing system differs for each country. Thus, the reading may be inaccurate if they are used in countries with different number plating systems.

Impact of Covid-19 on Global ANPR System Market

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and the lockdown imposed by the governments of different countries, millions of people were compelled to stay to prevent the virus from spreading. Since more people were staying at home, traffic jams in major cities reduced considerably. Moreover, as the lockdown was imposed, all the government projects regarding the installations of ANPR systems at parking lots or toll stations were put on hold.  However, travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are also stimulating the demand for ANPR systems to some extent, as this technology helps law enforcement officers to keep a watchful eye on the roads.

Global ANPR System Market - By Type

Based on type, the ANPR system market is segmented into mobile, portable, and fixed (stationary). The fixed/stationary ANPR systems have recorded significant traction over the past few years and are estimated to grow significantly during the forecast period. This segment has a high demand especially in traffic management and defense forces. Cameras in fixed or stationary ANPR systems are mounted in fixed positions such as billboards, buildings, street lights, or pedestrian overpasses over highways. Fixed ANPR systems can be customized according to the needs of the user, which proves to be effective in its application for security purposes.

Global ANPR System Market - By Application

Based on application, the global ANPR market is categorized into security and surveillance, toll management, parking management, traffic management, and others. The traffic management segment held the largest market share with the highest revenue in the year 2020. Factors such as government initiatives of installing ANPR systems for traffic management purposes are significantly contributing to the growth of this sector. ANPR systems are very useful in enforcing traffic rules and monitoring those who violate them. The traffic management segment is also projected to register high growth during the forecast period.

Global ANPR System Market - By End-user

In terms of end-users, the global ANPR system market is segmented into commercial and government. The government sector leads the market with the highest market share. This segment is further estimated to grow during the forecast period. This is mainly because the governments of different countries are increasingly installing ANPR systems at various locations for law enforcement purposes. However, the application of the ANPR system in the commercial segment is also rising but is growing at a very slow pace.

Recent Development

l  In March 2021, the Greensand Trust, a UK-based independent environmental charity fundraising organization announced the installation of the automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system at the Rushmere country park. The decision was made to prevent crowding and the formation of queues around the parking lot of the park. However, a proper date of installation has not been fixed yet.

l  In April 2021, the City of York Council made two main city center car parks ticketless. The ticketless system will use ANPR cameras to provide ticketless parking. It will let visitors pay for their parking at their exit, rather than at the entrance. The decision was made in partnership with York BID. The new ‘pay-on-exit’ system was installed at the Marygate and Coppergate car parks in York city.
