The gesture recognition & touchless sensing technologies enable a user to interact with a device to perform a specific task without the need of touching it. Microsoft Kinect was introduced in 2010, which further triggered the market growth. It was the first time when a vision based non-touch device was launched in the market. Post the launch of Kinect, manufacturers and the other players from the gesture control industry’s value chain started focusing on consumer electronics to implement gesture-enabled solutions. Currently, laptops, TVs, smartphones, and so on are GR enabled. Recently, a number of OEMs such as Samsung, Fujitsu, and Sony have launched gesture enabled products in the market.

The total gesture recognition and touchless sensing market is expected to reach $ 23.55 Billion by 2020 at a high CAGR of 28.23% between 2015 and 2020.

The touchless sensing market primarily comprises touchless sanitary equipment and touchless biometrics. Currently, looking at the increasing rate of cybercrimes and illegal trespassing, biometric authentication market has gained pace in terms of growth. Government initiatives also promote biometric authentication techniques. The increasing hygiene concern is a major driver for the growth of the market for touchless sanitary equipment.

The gesture recognition market exhibits a huge potential in verticals such as consumer electronics, advertisement & communication, healthcare, and others. The touchless sensing market is driven by the growth in verticals such as government, finance & banking, consumer electronics, and so on.

In this report, drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges for the gesture recognition & touchless sensing market have been covered. A major driving factor for the gesture recognition market is the enhanced user experience and ease of use. Major restraints for this market are the lack of haptic perception and high power consumption. The figure below shows the estimated growth of the gesture recognition market between 2013 and 2020.
