The video analytics market is expected to grow by 21 percent year-over-year in 2011, according to ABI Research. This surge in demand will drop to a more sustainable growth of 13.9 percent in 2012 and will stabilize at near 11 percent year over year growth at the end of 2016, driven by the emergence of innovative use cases such as business intelligence (BI) tools and the maturing of product offerings. The video analytics market is projected to grow a little over 2.5 times from 2011 to 2016.
