Action Camera Market Key Takeaways


An action camera can be referred to as a digital camera that is primarily designed to capture high-speed or fast-paced events. The action cameras are generally smaller in size and high durability as well as are made waterproof to resist from water damage. These devices are usually equipped with CMOS image sensors and can take burst and time-lapse images while also capturing high-definition footage. As these cameras are meant to capture those extreme events, they are often fixed to helmets, surfboards, or handlebars, and are widely adopted for sport events such as bungee jumping and wingsuit riding. Different variance of cameras are used to catch specific viewpoints, such as a helmet camera that offers the actor’s viewpoint in tandem with a second camera mounted to the rider’s environment such as a board, wing, handlebar, or forearm.

Additionally, these cameras are designed to take footage from a first-person viewpoint and also giving audiences a unique perspective on sports events such as surfing, rock climbing, and skiing. Factors such as lightweight, portable, and smaller sizes and forms, which can be applicable for a variety of situations present key aspects for the wide adoption of the cameras across events. Besides having a long battery life, the devices can capture high resolution image and allow to film crystal-clear footage. With these reasons, the demand for action cameras are increasingly growing on the global market.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Advancements of technology in consumer electronics such as the incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR) techniques in cameras are key drivers for the market expansion.
  • Wide adoption of action cameras from professional players engaging in extreme activities as well as outdoor event experiences are expected to boost the market.
  • Availability of Wi-Fi compatibility and smartphone app compatibility are two key features development that drive the demand for the cameras. This is projected to fuel the market expansion.
  • Complexity in the handling of the devices and high cost of the products are key challenges that can hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Increasing number of organizing outdoor events globally and rising participation from a large number of population in various extreme actions are projected to create several opportunities for the market players.
