Video analytics is a technology that is used to identify, record, and analyze video streams via electronic media. Intelligent video analytics (IVA) helps end-users to detect events of interest and recognize a range of behaviors on a real-time basis, without a human operator having to view the video. It also helps users with advanced monitoring capabilities that conduct highly advanced video surveillance. IVA recognizes objects in motion based on various parameters such as size and shape.

A recent report by Technavio’s analysts forecasts the global IVA market to grow at a CAGR of 32.47% during the period 2016-2020.

According to the report, the IVA market major driver is the increased volume of unstructured video data, while the market challenge is the lack of awareness to the innovative possibilities of video analytics.

The relevant market segements according to the report include banking, financial services and insurance, government, healthcare, industrial, retail, and the transport and logistics sector.
