Boston Marathon Bombing Expected to Boost Video Surveillance Spending

Despite the impressive growth that was already projected for the global video surveillance equipment market prior to the recent bombing at the Boston Marathon, IMS Research, part of IHS, is predicting that the terror attack will likely drive increased government spending on video surveillance.Footage from both public and private security cameras proved to be an invaluable tool for authorities during the bombing investigation as they were able to quickly identify the suspects in the case. In fact, just last week, Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis called for the implementation of a city-run surveillance system and indicated that he would be interested in using aerial surveillance technologies to monitor events such as the marathon in the future.According to a statement, IMS said that it is the process of updating its most recent forecast of the video surveillance equipment market, which projects worldwide revenue to rise to $20.5 billion in 2016, a 114 percent increase from the $9.6 billion that was spent in 2010.
