Global Facial Recognition Market: Snapshot

A few international vendors, such as Cognitec Systems, 3M Cogent, Safran, Gemalto, and NEC, have stronghold over the global facial recognition market, dominating with their technological and financial might, feeding their biometric technology customers. However, the competition itself among these market leaders is quite intense, with research and development of innovative products at its backbone.

The global facial recognition market is expected to gain from several new trends, including the shift from 2D to 3D facial recognition, advancements such as cloud-based services, emergence of facial analytics, growing application in mobile security and drones, increasing application in physical security and intelligent signage, commercialization of facial recognition technology to the corporate sector, and incrementing integration of facial biometrics with smart cards. On the other hand, factors such as privacy concerns, significant error rates, competition from non-biometric technologies, and the lack of established international standards are expected to hinder the market from achieving its true potential in the near future.

This report on the global facial recognition market has been prepared to act as dependable document for audiences such as government including homeland security and military, enterprises including banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), and retail, and other consumers. A number of key companies operational in the facial recognition market have been profiled in the report in order to present qualitative and quantitative scenario of the market, and studies their product portfolio as well as recent strategic decision to evaluate the future.

Global Facial Recognition Market: Overview

Facial recognition refers to a complex computer application used to robotically identify a creature from a video mount or digital image source. One of the methods of doing this is by equating the selected facial features from a facial database and the image fed by the video mount or the digital image source. Technological developments in the field have significantly improved the accuracy with which the target is identified.

Facial recognition systems are generally used for surveillance and security purposes, however, the range of applications using these complex systems is rising at a significant pace in the global market. Some advanced systems are also used to compare and match other biometrics such as eyes and fingerprints by comparing this data with digital databases.

Facial recognition is increasingly emerging as one of the most preferred technologies for authentication and identification of a variety of subjects, ranging from animals to humans. The technology is not restricted to its traditional application of facial detection any longer. Its present usage includes photo tagging, refining search engine searches based on facial images, identifying age, sex, and ethnicity of a person in retail stores, gathering intelligence on buying pattern in retail shops, and identifying missing persons.
