Global Affective Computing Market to Reach US$ 682.2 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Increasing Demand for Human-Computer Interfaces

July 24, 2022 | Technology & Media

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Affective Computing Market Report by Technology (Touch-based, Touchless), Components (Hardware, Software), End Use (Automotive, BFSI, Government, Healthcare, IT and Telecom, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global affective computing market reached a value of US$ 68.6 Billion in 2023. Affective computing refers to a multidisciplinary field combining psychology, and computer and cognitive sciences, which recognizes, interprets, and simulates human emotions. It uses a range of software and hardware components, including sensors, cameras, processors, machine intelligence, and microphones that assist in sensing and evaluating the non-verbal communication signals of users. Affective computing aids enterprises in understanding the reactive state of customers, selling products effectively, monitoring employee emotional states to adjust their workload, and performing content optimization to engage with clients. Apart from this, affective communication optimizes overall organizational productivity; therefore, it is extensively incorporated in the autonomous and e-learning systems in varying industries.

Global Affective Computing Market Trends:

The widespread adoption of affective computing across various industrial verticals can be attributed to the increasing demand for effective and improved human-computer interfaces to establish an interaction between the user and system after detection of the emotional state. In line with this, significant technological advancements, such as the large-scale integration of machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), and dual cameras to detect human behavior, motion, gestures, and physiology, are acting as another growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the rising need for telehealth applications, especially during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, has prompted the extensive incorporation of affective computing solutions for monitoring patient conditions and providing treatment, which is propelling the market growth. Additionally, escalating fraudulent activities, such as hacking, have prompted the installation of virtual assistants and face-recognition biometrics in affective computing systems to offer better security, which is propelling the market growth. Other factors, such as the fueling utilization of consumer electronics and several wearable devices and the strategic collaborations amongst key players to enhance product efficacy to offer personalized experiences to users, are positively stimulating the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 682.2 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 28.2% during 2024-2032.
