The Fastest growing Segment for Emerging Gesture Recognition Market is Foundin Consumer Electronics
The biggest contributor to the gesture recognition market is the consumer electronics due to the commercialization of this technology in smartphones, media tablets, smart TVs, set-top boxes, and gaming consoles. Gesture recognition technology is now utilized by OEMs such as Sony, Samsung, Apple, and others in the consumer products. The Smart TV market is trying to incorporate more and more features in a single device. The growth rate will be very high in the coming years in this sector as the technology is evolving at a rapid speed. The gesture recognition market was already commercialized in 2012 in several consumer electronics products such as smartphones, laptops, smart TVs, media tablets, and gaming consoles, except for set top boxes.
The segment which holds an exponential growth of gesture recognition technology is the healthcare segment. Currently, the gesture recognition market in healthcare is still in the inital stage as most of the applications are only in prototyping stage;theyhave not yet been commercialized and arebeing used only for rehabilitation applications. Research & Development is going to develop many more innovative products which will enable and help doctors to serve and treat patients in aneasier and effective manner. Research is being carried out in order to combine Microsoft’s Kinect camera with an algorithm to convert gestures to commands for manipulating MRI images on large visual display units.
Another section with a high potential growth rate for gesture recognition technology is the automotive sector. Although the technology is in the testing stage and will only commercialize by the end of 2015, the automotive firms are seeking to integrate this technology with car accessories, which is adding fuel to this growth. The functionalities of AC, music system, GPS, andothers can be controlled by the driver only by using gestures. Thus, this decreases distractions, leading to greatersafety during driving. Mercedes Benz (Germany) has already displayed an experimental system named DICE (Dynamic & Intuitive Control Experience) which let drivers perform basic functionalities using hand gestures. Indian car companies,such asMahindra-Satyam,have also come up with in-car navigation systems supporting gesture recognition, which are an emerging market for the automotive sector.
