San Francisco, July 24th, 2020 – Despite the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 360 and spherical video camera market will experience growth through 2024. This is largely due to the increasing adoption of new monoscopic camera systems and artificial intelligence that enables them to be utilized in a variety of roles — beyond simple point-of-view video capture. A new report from Greenlight Insights estimates the worldwide 360 and spherical video camera market will grow to $1 billion by 2024, up from $538 million in 2019, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 14%.

"360 and spherical video camera growth is being driven by the adoption of smart camera systems and the adoption of the artificial intelligence applications that enable them," said Clifton Dawson, CEO and principal analyst at Greenlight Insights. "Although the market is experiencing a short-term decline driven by COVID-19 impacts, the longer-term prospects will be driven by the increasing use of 360 and spherical video in hospitality, real estate, and healthcare."

360 cameras for consumers and the enterprise are quickly becoming critical tools to capture, create and share engaging personal content, as well as for achieving optimal employee performance in today's day-to-day business operations. As a major application of the Internet of virtual reality, 360 video is playing an increasingly important role in hospitality, real estate, and healthcare.
