The 3D facial recognition software tool is expected to witness a highest growth.

The global facial recognition market is expected to grow from USD 4.05 billion in 2017 to USD 7.76 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.9% during forecast period. The 3D facial recognition software tool analyzes, identifies, and verifies the facial characteristics of individuals with high potential. The 3D facial recognition technology uses 3D geometric features of the human face, which are compared with the images stored in the database. The increased need for enhanced surveillance and monitoring at public places and the increase in use of facial recognition technologies in industries, such as the government are said to be driving the facial recognition market growth.

Training and consulting services segment is expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period

In the facial recognition market, the training and consulting services segment includes feasibility assessment, analysis, and advisory of large-scale governmental and military projects. It also includes requirement gathering, biometric security design, technology evaluation, and validation of biometric features. Several leading service providers offer training and consulting services in the facial recognition market.

Law enforcement segment is expected to have the largest market size during the forecast period

Facial recognition software and services are predominantly applied at the premises where enforcement, surveillance, and monitoring of the facial detection law is needed. Facial recognition technologies are capable of recognizing faces in real-time using webcam; providing accurate gender information; detecting age, mood, and other features; and searching faces from the database. The demand for the software is expected to have increased, due to the increasing data breaches and the enterprises’ growing need to save resources from unauthorized access.

North America is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period

Among the 5 regions, North America is expected to have the largest market size in the facial recognition market during the forecast period. The North American region has shown increased investments in the market, and several vendors have evolved to cater to the rapidly growing market. A considerable growth is expected in the region during the forecast period. Major initiatives taken for the growth of the facial recognition technology have their origin in this region. The smart city initiatives taken by the government in this region has positively impacted the adoption trend of the facial recognition technology across the region, to enhance the monitoring and improve the surveillance.

The global facial recognition market is expected to grow from USD 4.05 Billion in 2017 to USD 7.76 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.9%. The growth of the global market is expected to be driven by various factors, such as the increased need for enhanced surveillance and monitoring at public places and the increase in the use of facial recognition technologies in industries, such as the government.

The components segment is further segmented into software tools and services. The services segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Due to the growing awareness among enterprises about the features of facial recognition technologies and the rising need for a more secured biometric system, the demand for facial recognition systems is expected to be increasing globally. The cloud-based facial recognition services play a vital role in face detection and recognition, and comprise training and consulting services and cloud-based facial recognition services. The facial recognition services are used by governments, Homeland Security, military, retail, and healthcare.

On the basis of software tools, the 3D facial recognition technology segment is expected to have the largest market size during forecast period. The 3D facial recognition model overcomes the drawbacks of the 2D facial recognition technology. 3D facial technology is not dependent on illumination, which enables it to capture high-quality images in uncontrolled environments, such as poorly lit or completely dark areas. The 3D facial recognition technology has a high potential to analyze, identify, and verify the facial characteristics of individuals. The facial recognition technologies are used in applications areas, such as cross-border monitoring, document verification, and identity management.

The services segment subsegmented into training and consulting services, and cloud-based facial recognition services. Among these services, the training and consulting services segment is expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period. In the facial recognition market, training and consulting services include feasibility assessment, analysis, and advisory of large-scale governmental and military projects. It also includes requirement gathering, biometric security design, technology evaluation, and validation of biometric features. Several leading service providers offer training and consulting services in the facial recognition market.

Among technologies, the analytics solution segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR.
