Action Camera Market Size Analysis, Growth, Share, Market Trends, Forecast to 2030


The global action camera market is growing rapidly. The market growth attributes the increasing use of smart gadgets, booming consumer electronics industry, and the growing content sharing trend on social networking websites. Besides, continuous advancements in the consumer electronics sector drive market growth, bringing about miniaturized next-generation cameras. Moreover, the rising use of social media as a platform for various promotional & marketing activities escalates market growth.

According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global action camera market size is poised to create a value of USD 9,382.5 MN by 2023, growing at 14.21% CAGR throughout the assessment period (2018-2023). In 2017, the market valuation had reached USD 4,237.9 million, due to the camera segment of consumer electronics increasing with evolution in terms of product size, quality, and efficiency. Due to the increasing usages of social media platforms such as Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook, the trend of sharing live videos and pictures is increasing.

Action cameras offer some impressive specs for the price, including 4K video recording capability at 60fps, alongside a large display with a simple UI, and onboard video stabilization. With the increasing technology upgrades, action cameras have significantly evolved. Over recent years, the demand for action cameras is growing due to the advanced features and benefits that these cameras offer. What's unconventional, though, is the side that allows screwing in accessories such as microphones, LED lights, and so on.

With this arrangement, action cameras can be turned into a Run & Gun camera set up to record vlogs and whatnot on the go. Additionally, the increasing adoption of the action cameras in media & entertainment to cover the live sport are the key factors acting as a tailwind for the growth of the market. Also, various professional and personal applications to enable users to capture and process images and videos boost the action camera market size.

A key emerging trend in the market is the adoption of 360° cameras with VR integration, offering the user a life-like experience of any event. Heading with these factors cumulatively, the demand for action cameras is growing too. On the flip side, the rising penetration of smartphones having high-end cameras is a key factor estimated to impede market growth. Also, the long product life cycle and high cost of the camera hamper the market growth, restricting its production.
