Global Facial Recognition Market to Grow at 21.2% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Increasing Incidences of Identity Theft

October 18, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Facial Recognition Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global facial recognition market size reached US$ 5.0 Billion in 2021. Facial recognition is a biometric technology that is widely deployed for the authentication and identification of individuals. This technology compares the facial features of a person with the stored facial database using deep learning algorithms. It assists in capturing, analyzing and comparing patterns in an efficient manner to facilitate a non-contact process for authentication without the need for physical contact for verification. It can be widely integrated with numerous advanced technologies to safeguard an infrastructure in a better manner. Consequently, it is increasingly utilized as a key security component in criminal investigations, identity management, homeland security, intelligent signage and photo indexing.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Facial Recognition Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the rising incidences of terrorist activities, identity thefts and cyber-attacks. Facial recognition is widely deployed for high-level security and smart surveillance systems across public and private sectors, thereby providing an impetus to the market growth. These recognitions are also being integrated with multi-factor authentication systems to offer enhanced security for sensitive data, which is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. Additionally, continual technological advancements, including the development of 3D recognition systems to recognize faces from several viewing angles and precisely determine changes in facial characteristics, are also contributing to the market growth. Moreover, these systems are increasingly being used in the healthcare sector to replace passwords and provide healthcare providers a relatively quicker access to the patients and their records. Some of the other factors favorably impacting the market growth include the rising adoption of cloud-based surveillance systems and extensive research and development (R&D) activities. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 21.2% during 2022-2027.
