The global market for crowd analytics was valued at $331 million in 2015, and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 24.9% to reach at $1,531 million by 2022. The global crowd analytics market is expected to witness a high growth rate during the forecast period, due to increase in demand for better crowd distribution planning in smart cities, upsurge in the number of airlines & train passengers, and increased concerns of security & surveillance across several geographic regions including North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific
Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a highest CAGR in the near future. Industry participants have realized the importance of strengthening the overall crowd analytics market due to growth in need for public and crowd control management at large retail malls and airport gateways. Expansion of global brands and increase in expenditures by citizens of the several emerging countries, such as China, India, Australia, and others have led to growth in the number of visitors at commercial malls. However, the LAMEA crowd analytics market has the least share in the global market, as it is in its progressive stage of growth. Lack of awareness and low information and communication technologies (ICT) expenditure in several underdeveloped countries including Kenya, Chile, Egypt, and others hamper the market growth.
Key players profiled in the report are AGT International GmbH, Crowd Dynamics International, Crowd Vision Limited, Geodan Next, Mira, NEC Corporation, Nokia Corporation, Savannah Simulations AG, Spigit, Inc., Walkbase, and others. These players have adopted strategies, such as geographical expansion, mergers & acquisitions, product portfolio expansion, and collaborations, to enhance their crowd analytics market penetration.
Increase in demand for better crowd distribution planning in smart cities
