The defense geospatial applications market is defined here as tools and products that contribute to the art of analysis, including imagery, Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) data, terrain data, mapping software, integration tools, and any other geo-referenced data that contribute to analysis. This research effort includes spending associated directly with the applications used to process, exploit, and disseminate (PED) geospatial products and services. Some overlap of spending on computer hardware, sensors, or collection platforms may be found but is considered relevant to the US defense geospatial applications market. Research Parameters: The market forecast period is 2017 to 2022 using a base year of 2016. A large portion of defense geospatial applications utilize data from the US Global Positioning System (GPS) which can be considered a key enabler of the geospatial applications market. However, for the purpose of this research GPS market data (e.g., spending on satellites, ground control stations, and user equipment) will be excluded. Market share within this research is based on the government contracts awarded to companies for any product or service associated with defense geospatial applications. Given the fact that most government contracts are awarded on a multi-year basis, actual company revenue attributed to defense geospatial applications cannot be fully determined. Estimated spending and future year forecasts (2017 2022) are based on the most recent (2018) DoD and DHS budget request. All years referenced within this effort are based on US fiscal years and not conventional calendar years. This research is limited to the unclassified information available and therefore does not offer a complete depiction of the defense geospatial applications market. Frost & Sullivan estimates that the enclosed research addresses 25 to 30% of the actual market and the rest falls within the Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) realm, which is not accessible for this effort. Questions this Study will Answer: Is the defense geospatial applications market on the rise, and if so for how long and at what rate? Who are some of the existing competitors and how do they stack up within the defense geospatial applications market space? Which defense agencies are utilizing geospatial applications and what is their current and future estimated spending in the market? What are some of the influences driving or restraining demand for geospatial applications? Do any growth opportunities exist that could propel interested parties to enter the defense geospatial applications market or create an opening for existing competitors to capitalize on? Which defense programs utilize geospatial applications?

Surveillance technologies have moved beyond static, passive security operations, where cameras capture video data from security events, alert security operators, and the video data is used mostly for post-event analysis. Modern surveillance operations are now adopting more proactive security technologies, such as surveillance automation, artificial intelligence, facial recognition, and more, in order to better predict security events before they happen and to enact efficient mitigation procedures to halt events before people or assets are endangered. Due to the increasing volumes of surveillance technology and video surveillance operations, the massive amount of data collected necessitates more advanced surveillance technologies to gather, monitor, analyze, and provide relevant insights into these potential security threats. Public sector end users, such as law enforcement, transportation, critical national infrastructure, and airports, as well as retail and commercial end users can all benefit from these advanced surveillance solutions which include cameras, video management systems, storage, and video analytics to offer better efficiency and insight. End-to-end security systems, offering both security hardware and software options, have seen increasing demand from customers in all verticals due to their substantial return-on-investment, scalable and flexible system design, and technological sophistication. End-to-end security vendors will continue to see increased opportunities in these markets as customers continue to refresh, upgrade, and re-design their surveillance operations to meet modern security demands and improve their overall operational efficiency and asset protection capabilities. Research Scope This analysis looks at the United States' video surveillance market beginning in 2016 and forecasted through 2023. It discusses how end users, such as law enforcement agencies, retail and commercial enterprises, and critical national infrastructure agencies, are adapting to their needs for more advanced surveillance technology, what is driving their purchase decisions, and what restraints they must overcome. This analysis also looks at the specific challenges facing each end-user group and what continues to drive increased spending within these vertical markets. It also analyzes the four major technology segments within an end-to-end security system, discussing camera technology, video management systems, video storage systems, and video analytics functions. The analysis will look at specific trends, technologies, and segment-specific challenges affecting overall segment growth and forecast potential growth opportunities within each segment. This analysis will also explore potential growth opportunities within the overall surveillance technology market and what trends and potential disruptions could affect this rapidly developing industry in the short-, medium-, and long-term periods.--BEGIN PROMO--
