Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) Market (Security and Surveillance, Vehicle Parking, Traffic Management, Toll Enforcement) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is a surveillance system with primary capability of capturing the image of vehicles and identifies their license number. ANPR systems consist of high-speed cameras with IR filters, processors capable of performing optical character recognition (OCR), application software, user interface, and an alert capability to notify operators in case of a match. ANPR systems can be a standalone device or can be used with existing traffic enforcement cameras or closed-circuit televisions and are used by the police forces across the globe to prevent and detect crimes. These systems are also used for electronic toll collection on roads and for monitoring traffic activities such as red light adherence and speed enforcement. Additionally, ANPR systems can assist in the detection of stolen vehicles. The ANPR technology varies from location to location depending on the designs of number plates. 

ANPR systems are increasingly being adopted in traffic enforcement, detection, and prevention of crimes and access control in the public sector. Initiatives undertaken by governments to incorporate new technologies in order to ensure safety in the public sector is one of the key factors driving growth in the global automatic number plate recognition market. However, challenges related to non-uniformity in the license plate design across different states, countries, or regions are hindering the adoption of this technology. Applications of ANPR systems in the commercial sector have increased in the recent years and shown significant traction in the vehicle-parking segment.

An Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system reads the number plate of passing vehicles, extracts the characters on the plate and converts them into digital format, which can be used for a variety of applications. Data collected through ANPR systems can be compared with the vehicle and people database available with law enforcement agencies such as the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and Police National Road Agency. ANPR systems consist of high-speed cameras with IR filters, processors capable of performing optical character recognition (OCR), application software, user interface, and an alert capability to notify operators in case of a match. The global automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) market, valued at USD 477.8 million in 2014, is expected to witness strong growth at a CAGR of 12.8% during 2015 to 2023.

The key factor driving the growth of ANPR systems globally is its high penetration in traffic enforcement and security and surveillance applications across the world. Automatic number plate recognition technology has been used significantly by governments for traffic enforcement and security and surveillance applications. However, commercial end usage is increasing owing to the escalating demand for ANPR from vehicle parking applications such as parking security and parking fee collection. Market growth is strong in regions such as Europe and North America where ANPR has been installed in nearly every country for different applications. Developing economies such as Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Latin America, and Africa, hold immense potential for the growth of ANPR as both government and commercial installations have increased in recent years.

Security and surveillance represents the largest application segment for automatic number plate recognition systems. ANPR systems are popularly used for public safety and security. ANPR cameras installed on streets or on police department vehicles capture images of vehicles and this helps extensively in real-time crime investigation. ANPR systems are also used for surveillance. The development of advanced information technologies has brought surveillance to a completely new and extended level of operation. In surveillance, ANPR enables the matching, rapid recovery, identification and tracking of vehicles in real-time in public space. ANPR is more beneficial than CCTVs for surveillance, since it can create a database for each passing vehicle that is not possible in CCTVs. Police departments across all regions are using ANPR systems for security and surveillance. For example, the U.K. has an extensive network of ANPR cameras to track vehicle movements in cities.

By region, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is known as Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) in North America. The region is one of the largest adopters of license plate recognition technology and growth of this technology has been significant in the last five years. Typical applications of ALPR in this region include recovery of stolen vehicles, parking enforcement, access control, asset recovery, security monitoring, and insurance fraud. Positive results from the usage of ANPR in North America have been responsible for the popularity of this technology in the region.

Some of the key players in the global automatic number plate recognition market include PIPS Technology Ltd., NDI Recognition Systems Ltd., Genetec Inc., Tattile Srl, and Bosch Security Systems. The key strategy used by players to sustain in the ANPR market is to develop ANPR solutions with better reading capabilities and integrated ANPR systems. The market is highly fragmented and thus the competition within a particular market segment such as ANPR engine manufacturing, ANPR component manufacturers, and system integrators is high.
