Objectives of the Study

The main objective of this report is to define, describe, and forecast the global facial recognition market on the basis of components which includes solutions/tools, services, and service models, along with application areas & regions. The report provides detailed information regarding the major factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and industry-specific challenges). The report attempts to forecast the market size with respect to five main regions; namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Latin America, and Middle East & Africa (MEA). The report strategically profiles key players and comprehensively analyzes their core competencies. This report additionally tracks and analyzes competitive developments such as joint ventures, Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), new product developments, and Research & Development (R&D) activities in the market.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the facial recognition market begins with collection and analysis of data on key vendor revenues through secondary research such as annual reports & press releases, investor presentations of companies, white papers, technology journals including SDx Central, facial recognition evolution, certified publications, and articles from recognized authors, directories, and databases. Vendor offerings have also been taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the total market size of the global market from the revenue of the key solution and service providers in the market. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and to arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown profiles of primary participants is depicted in the below figure:

The facial recognition market size is estimated to grow from USD 3.35 Billion in 2016 to USD 6.84 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 15.3% from 2016 to 2021. The main driving factors for the growth of the market include growing surveillance market and increasing applications in numerous industry sectors. These factors are boosting the adoption of market.

The facial recognition market is segmented by component, technology, use cases application area, enterprise, and geographical region. Among the software tools, the 3D facial recognition technology is the fastest growing market. The reason for the wide adoption of this technology is the quality of image captured. Among facial recognition services, the cloud-based facial recognition services are the fastest growing market, due to rapid adoption of cloud technologies.

In the technology segment, the analytics solution is expected to be the largest contributor during the forecast period. As video analytics is gaining traction across industries, there has been an increase in demand for analytic solutions. Among the use case segment, the law enforcement, surveillance, and monitoring market is expected to hold the largest market share, as there is increase in demand for software due to increasing data breaches and unauthorized access.

Among the application area segment, the government segment holds the largest market share, the reason being increasing investments by government organizations in the facial recognition market. The opportunity to extract intelligence from real-time videos via surveillance cameras is driving the facial recognition analytics market.

Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period; therefore, the facial recognition market in APAC is expected to grow significantly due to huge governmental investments in security and surveillance infrastructure. Moreover, the growth is anticipated with technological advancements along with the mandatory regulations imposed by government regulatory entities to adopt the best-in-class technologies and standards.

Facial Recognition Market

Interoperability concerns and misinterpretation in analysis of emotions are the factors hindering the growth of the facial recognition market. The integration is of concern, as for facial recognition to work efficiently, it must be able to communicate with the existing legacy systems such as surveillance cameras, databases, and access control systems. The presence of high-quality video capturing devices is essential for effective analysis by software tools offered by the vendors in the market.

3M (Minnesota, U.S.), NEC Corporation (Tokyo, Japan), Aware Inc. (Montana, U.S.), Safran Group (Paris, France), Daon (Virginia, U.S), Cognitec Systems GMBH (Dresden, Germany), Ayonix (Tokyo, Japan), Keylemon(Martigny, Switzerland), nVsio (Lausanne, Switzerland), and Animetrics (New Hampshire, U.S.) are the major players in the market adopting majorly partnership and agreement & collaboration strategy to grow in the market. The strategy of new product launches/upgradation and business expansions accounted for a share of 38% and 6% respectively, of the total strategic developments in the global facial recognition market.
