Market Report Description
The Global People Counting System Market size is expected to reach $1.7 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 10.5% CAGR during the forecast period. People counter refers to electronic equipment that is deployed to calculate the footfall i.e., number of people going through a particular way or an entrance. It is utilized in several applications for footfall analysis and queue management like supermarkets, retailers, brick & mortar stores, and transport hubs. Several types of people counters are available in the market based on the budget and requirements of the stores such as thermal imaging systems, WIFI trackers, Infrared beams, Simple manual clickers, and video counters. Currently, many new technologies such as thermal sensing, infrared beams, video, and among others, are integrated into people counting systems.
The surging awareness about retail analytics in order to understand customer behavior and preferences in the hospitality, retail, and entertainment sectors is expected to open new growth avenues for the global people counting system market. Additionally, retailers are compelled to deploy sophisticated people counters due to the developing retail industry and increased acceptance of digitized technologies.
Moreover, the higher adoption of automated systems across various industries is helping people counting systems to achieve high popularity in transportation & retail applications. A number of market vendors are launching 2D and 3D video-integrated counting systems that are capable of offering precise traffic measurement results because of the installation of cameras and stereo vision cameras. Therefore, these factors are likely to augment the growth of the people counting system market during the forecast period.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Governments around the world have imposed stringent lockdown restrictions including stay-at-home orders that prohibited individuals to go out in public. As there was no or lesser number of people going through any passage or entrance, the demand for people counting systems was reduced dramatically. The global people counting system market had witnessed an adverse impact due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, hence declined the demand & adoption of people counting systems across the world.
Due to this, a decline was observed in the development of the global people counting market throughout the first half of 2020. This trend remained the same till the first quarter of 2021. Moreover, the demand & deployment of people counting systems would boost again due to the rising production and the increased demand for occupancy monitoring, identification of customer behavior analytics, and visitor footfall count in store during the second or third quarter of 2021.
Market Growth Factors:
The market growth is set to boost due to the increasing combination of 4D technology with video-based people counters
Various end-user verticals like hospitality, retail, healthcare, and transportation have been significantly deploying 2D and 3D people counting systems. 2D people counting systems refer to the video-based monocular single-lens device that is appropriate for low-traffic and highly lit environments. In addition, these people counting systems display as high as 95% accuracy.
Facilitate the energy-saving
It becomes possible to save the energy-consumption by understanding the occupancy levels and traffic patterns of every space. Building owners may want to lower down the temperature in a place when capacity is full to enhance the comfort of the occupant. For this purpose, the people counting system plays a vital role in counting the number of people inside the premises. In addition, these systems can also utilize this data to maximize when spaces are not being occupied; assisting in decreasing energy costs and enhances sustainability.
Market Restraining Factor:
The global market is expected to hamper due to the thriving e-commerce sector
Factors such as the advent of several online shopping portals and the thriving e-commerce industry are expected to hinder the growth of the global people counting system market. As per the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the leading 13 worldwide B2C e-commerce companies’ sales were approximately USD 2.9 trillion in 2020. The B2C e-commerce sales involve the transaction between end-users and online retailers only.
