Optical Character-Recognition Software Developers

Clear focus

Demand for optical character-recognition software will pick up over the next five years. Industry revenue declined marginally during the recession, as private investment took a hit, but businesses will resume spending on OCR software in the coming years. In particular, as medical records move online, businesses will need the software to assist in the process.

This industry develops and distributes optical character recognition software, which electronically translates scanned images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text. This software is used to convert books and documents into electronic files, to computerize record-keeping systems in offices and to publish text onto websites.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
