India a Huge Market for Video Analytics in the Post Covid Era – Market Size, Trend & Career Option

Our Indian brains are one day elder than yesterday and one day younger than tomorrow, which means that everything we do is one step better than yesterday and will lead to something one step better tomorrow.

But the current pandemic has taken us back to our crawling days, from where we will have to forget all our post lifestyle and adopt a new lifestyle within the COVID protocol boundaries. And the only possible effective method we have to achieve this is trial and error. But for trial and error, someone needs to continuously monitor everyone.

Hmm, But who can do that? Well, the answer is no one can. But unfortunately, we don’t take no for an answer, right? And hence we will change the question to get the answer. So, what can do that? 

Well, we already have the answer – Video analytics. Video analytics is a new branch of security protocol that analysis a video piece employing pre-programmed codes and reports any action happening in the video that is of some kind of violation.

And this is where the problem begins and where ever the problem begins a market grows for the solution. It is easy to support this statement just by analyzing India’s journey through COVID times.

In the beginning, India had a great record of controlling the spread of the virus. But as soon as people got to know more about it we started crossing the lines and currently, we have registered 2.84 million cases and rank 3nd as of today.
