Action cameras are digital cameras designed to record action while performing activities. These cameras are designed to be compact and rugged and are largely waterproof and shockproof, making them suitable for high-intensity activities. Action camera accessories are used to mount, place, support, protect, and charge the cameras. These include batteries, mods, mounts, protectors, and other accessories.

The growth of this market is backed by factors such as the growing demand for action cameras in adventure sports and growth in travel blogging across the globe. Moreover, the rising demand for advanced action cameras across the automotive sector provides significant opportunities in this market. However, smartphone availability featuring high-resolution & wide-angle cameras obstruct this market’s growth to some extent. In addition, data security concerns are challenging the growth of the action camera & accessories market.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Action Camera & Accessories Market

With the increasing number of COVID-19 cases globally, consumers opted to spend on necessities and food products compared to recreational & leisure activities, travel & tourism, and adventure sports in the highly impacted regions, including Europe and Asia-Pacific. Panic buying among consumers led to empty shelves at retail outlets due to the scarcity of essential goods. In the first and second quarters of 2020, consumers stored huge quantities of grocery & food commodities due to lockdowns and the limited availability of goods across retail stores. This situation resulted in a massive decline in the demand and sales of basic and advanced consumer electronics products, including action cameras. Also, the imposition of stringent lockdowns and the temporary halting of recreational and sports activities such as boating, mountaineering, skiing, and underwater sports negatively impacted action camera businesses globally.

Lockdowns across major countries led to the shutting down of manufacturing facilities and the imposition of trade restrictions across borders, halting production. Entire supply chains were disrupted, which created a demand-supply gap. The consumer electronics industry was highly impacted as consumers were not spending on high-cost electronic products due to the global economic downturn.

Speak to our Analysts to Understand the Impact of COVID-19 on Your Business:

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 had an unprecedented impact on public health and businesses alike. Following the WHO’s social distancing guidelines for minimizing the spread of the virus, people avoided air travel, hotels, cruises, and crowded places. These factors reduced the participation of consumers in sports activities, and travel restrictions further impacted the demand for action cameras.

The action camera & accessories market is segmented based on product offering, technology, frame rate, distribution channel, end user, and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at the country level.

Rise in Travel Blogging Across the Globe to Drive the Growth of the Market

The travel & tourism sector contributes greatly to the global economy. The growing tourism industry contributes to economic growth, job creation, and development worldwide. According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), tourism accounted for 7% of the global trade and one in eleven jobs globally in 2019. According to the UNWTO World Tourism Barometer, in 2018, export earnings from international tourism reached nearly USD 1.7 trillion. By 2030, 1.8 billion people are expected to travel internationally.

In recent years, there has been immense growth in travel blogging. Travelers and tourists create videos and share their travel experiences on online platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook. Travel blogging is becoming increasingly popular among young travelers, and the influence of online video platforms is also increasing rapidly across the globe. Travel bloggers require high-resolution cameras that can capture high-quality video and images and offer advanced features such as image stabilization and wide viewing angles. These trends have propelled the demand for action cameras in recent years.

Several countries, including France, Bali, the Maldives, and Spain, depend on revenue from the travel & tourism sector as it directly affects these countries’ incomes and GDP. Travel bloggers help promote the tourism industry and influence video equipment sales, including action cameras. Manufacturers offer travel & tourism-specific cameras to meet the growing demand for image stabilization and wide viewing angles. Action camera manufacturers have worked on reducing camera size and weight to offer easy-to-carry products. Also, accessories such as camera mods, stands, and protectors are being developed to cater to travel & tourism industry users. These factors, coupled with technical innovation, are expected to support the demand for advanced action cameras in tourism and travel blogging applications during the forecast period.
