Retail to Witness Significant Market Growth

According to National Retail Federation, in the year 2021, nearly 40% of retailers in the United States stated that they had noticed the greatest increase in fraud occurring in multichannel sales, e.g., when buying online and picking up in-store. Also, shoplifting is one of the main sources of inventory shrinkage in US retail.?
The retail sector is focusing on deploying innovative solutions to increase security and customer experience as well, for which few of the retailers are implementing facial recognition technology. From security to advertisements, a multitude of applications of face recognition is being used in retail. From sending customized advertisements to identified shoppers to identifying gender, age, customer count, capturing glance time on products, the applications are endless.?
For instance, the prominent US retailer Walmart affirmed that it utilizes image recognition cameras at the registration to identify theft. Having used the innovation as of now in more than 1,000 stores, the organization also invested in ensuring the safety of its customers and associates.?
Retailers can work towards delighting the consumer by enhancing the quality of the shopping experience. In a Wipro study of consumers in the United States, 66% said that they are more likely to shop in the store where they receive personal suggestions while shopping. One of the biggest challenges retailers face today is the limited understanding of consumer behavior while walking along the store aisles.?
Retail video analytics is increasingly witnessing widespread adoption, as it can offer event-based analysis, heat mapping, smile detection, eyeball detection, and help in the implementation and management of smart shelves.?
In 2019, Kroger, one of the largest retailers, partnered with Microsoft to transform its stores and operations to personalize the shopping experience and improve associate productivity. The company adopted Microsoft Azure-powered video analytics solutions, which help store associates recognize and address out-of-stocks and ensure customers can locate items on their list.

Residential Addresses a Major Market Potential

The emergence of smart homes increased the prominence of video surveillance systems in the residential segment in the past few years. The surveillance systems implemented in this sector have varied applications, such as monitoring and access control. These systems are also equipped with features, such as motion detection and night vision.?
There are around 2.5 million burglaries annually in the United States, and 66% of these are home invasions (source: US Department of Justice). In September 2020, Insurance Zebra conducted a nationwide survey of 1,500 American homeowners and renters to gain deeper insight into common concerns and oversights regarding personal security and safety. The survey found that around 46.9% of people don’t have a home security system installed in their homes. Such a factor might lead to the major demand for video surveillance.
Most of the regional municipal law enforcement is leveraging video analytics for real-time response and post-event investigation, and cities are also using data for urban planning and traffic optimization. Many American cities have been aggressive towards equipping in surveillance infrastructure, including Detroit, which recently installed cameras for monitoring public housing residents, and Baltimore, whose police department conducted secret aerial surveillance of residents for several years.?
Video analytics play a significant role in residential security video surveillance technology, enabling the reduction of false alarms instances and enhancing the system’s ability to detect suspicious situations. The industry expert consumer survey of 10,000 broadband households found that among the 26% of US broadband households that intend to buy a smart video doorbell, the majority rated artificial intelligence (AI) or advanced analytics capabilities as very vital when selecting a specific video doorbell to purchase.?
