ANPR System Market size is projected to grow over the forecast time period with the introduction of innovative Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. The technology allows machines to recognize characters automatically through the optical mechanism and converts the typewritten, handwritten or printed text of scanned images mechanically or electronically. The images are then converted into machine-coded text, which is used in text mining, text to speech, and machine translation. The adoption of this technology to scan & identify the registration number of vehicles in parking facilities of large business groups, government facilities, and military locations will drive the ANPR system market growth. It assists the gate security personnel with automatic audio or visual warning about a vehicle that has a previous database. Moreover, it provides fast & easy database searching of the vehicle information, enhancing the parking efficiency & security.
The increasing demand for automated traffic monitoring & management solutions is predicted to drive the ANPR system market growth. The rise in road accidents and traffic jam issues in countries including China, India, and Malaysia are encouraging the government authorities to implement modern traffic control systems, allowing authorities to track vehicles that break traffic rules. Additionally, government authorities are also utilizing the technology to trace unregistered or untaxed vehicles. For instance, in May 2019, the UK government implemented these cameras in several locations that will end the paper tax discs for vehicles. The technology utilizes roadside cameras that capture number plates, which are then checked with the registered vehicle database by the Department of Infrastructure.
Increased crime rates, car thefts, and accidents are being widely controlled by the adoption of these systems to monitor & track vehicles and their locations. The cameras provide the insight of the driver vehicle speed and capture the registration number of the vehicle, aiding in tracking the vehicle & driver details. The efficiency and reliability of these systems in crime & accident control are accelerating their adoption in the ANPR system market. The growing adoption of these systems in parking facilities is also a major factor propelling the market. It helps the security personnel in several functions including parking security, parking fee collection, parked vehicle database, and vehicle security. For instance, Phantasialand Theme Park in Germany has installed these cameras for tracking the insights of visitors, their geographic location, and pattern of return.
Inconsistency in number plate design is the major factor restraining the ANPR system market demand. The design and number plate size & fonts differ across the globe, making it difficult for manufacturers in the market to construct a fixed algorithm, which will read all kinds of fonts with high efficiency & accuracy. Moreover, the change in government regulations regarding the design & development of vehicle number plates is also a major factor that restricts the automatic number plate registration system market growth. For instance, in December 2018, The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways India issued a notification of the amendment of Central Motor Vehicle Rules that directs vehicle manufacturers to incorporate pre-fitted High Security Registration Plates (HSRP) from April 2019. This change in number plate design will impact the current algorithm of the recognition system, negatively impacting the ANPR market growth.
The increasing demand for the hardware systems, such as video capture cards, processors, cameras, and LED signs & relay cards, will drive the ANPR system market growth. The manufacturers in the market are offering hardware systems in different configurations such as rackmounts, rugged mobiles, desktops, and tablets. It helps businesses to implement the recognition system based on their business requirements and space availability. These hardware systems are being developed for different applications such as ParkIT ANPR camera for the access control system, image capturing with smart cam, speed cam, and video signal digitizing. The advantages of incorporation of these systems, such as easy installation, factory calibrated, low false hit rate, reads personalized number plates, and efficient operations, are accelerating its adoption in the automatic number plate registration system market.
Government & defense is the major application segment of the ANPR system market due to the increased concern for safety & security of citizens. Several applications of these systems, such as traffic management, security & surveillance, crime & accidents control, and red-light control, are the areas where the importance of these systems can be seen. The features of the system that help government authorities to perform such operations effectively include optical character recognition, image capturing, and speed recognition. Additionally, the increasing government investment to install such modern solutions will also augment the ANPR system market growth. For instance, in May 2019, Leeds City Council announced its plans to install around 300 cameras with ANPR technology by January 2020.
The Europe ANPR system market is predicted to witness high growth over the coming years due to the strong presence of manufacturers such as NDI Recognition System, Q-Free ASA, and ARH Inc. Strict governmental regulations for traffic management have led to increased adoption of ANPR devices in their traffic control systems. Countries including France, Italy, the UK, and Germany have designed these systems and adopted to implement strict traffic rules & laws. These government policies are encouraging market players to offer innovative solutions in the region.
Major players in the automatic number plate registration (ANPR) system market are Bosch Security System Inc, Q-Free ASA, Genetec Inc, ARH Inc., PIPS Technology Ltd., NDI Recognition Systems LLC, and Digital Recognition Systems Ltd. These players are competing based on the growing demand and requirements of these systems globally in the ANPR system market. They are developing solutions based on the business requirement that allows them to integrate these security solutions by considering proper space availability and security location.
