By application, law enforcement segment to have highest market share during the forecast period
By application area, the facial recognition market has been mainly categorized into emotion recognition, attendance tracking and monitoring, access control, law enforcement, and others. Over the past decade, many major technology players have acquired companies that are operating in the facial recognition domain to add value to their own services. For instance, technology giants, such as Microsoft, Amazon, and Google, are exploring into the space of facial recognition due to the increasing demand for this technology.
With the COVID-19 outbreak, the demand for biometric recognition technologies, such as facial recognition, has increased for analyzing and identifying subjects wearing facial masks, especially in high security applications. Wearing masks has made face recognition difficult, which leads to the need to modify or upgrade the existing algorithms, involving the iris, pupil, sclera, upper and lower eyelids, eye folds, eye corners, skin texture, fine wrinkles, skin color, and skin pores, has also increased. Law enforcement agencies are investing in the R&D of advanced technologies. For instance, the US Department of Defense’ DARPA planned to invest around USD 2 billion on AI-based technologies, such as facial recognition. This is expected to fuel the growth of law enforcement application market in the coming years.
The major facial recognition vendors include 27 major vendors, namely NEC Corporation (NEC) (Japan), Aware, Inc. (Aware) (US), Ayonix Corporation (Ayonix) (Japan), Cognitec Systems GmbH (Cognitec Systems) (Germany), NVISO SA (nViso) (Switzerland), Animetrics (US), Neurotechnology (Lithuania), Daon (Ireland), Stereovision Imaging, Inc. (SVI) (US), Techno Brain (Dubai), Innovatrics (Bratislava), id3 Technologies (id3) (Israel), Thales (France), Idemia (France), Nuance Communications, Inc. (Nuance) (US), BioID (Germany), Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC. (Fulcrum Biometrics) (US), TrueFace.AI (US), Amazon (US), FacePhi (Spain), Herta Security (Herta) (Spain), Kairos AR, Inc.
