The biometric technique used for identification and authentication of individuals by analyzing different facial features from an image with the help of stored facial database is termed as facial recognition. This technique is expected to witness high growth during the future years due to its widespread adoption in applications that require both, law enforcement and non-law enforcement. The technology of facial recognition is highly preferred as compared to other biometric techniques such as skin texture recognition, iris recognition, voice recognition, and fingerprint scanning, owing to its easy deployment with the help of cameras and other monitoring devices. In the present era, this technology is increasingly used for marketing and security purpose.
The facial recognition market foresees immense growth opportunities in the future years. This technique helps to provide high-level security for private and public sectors. Owing to the rising incidents of terrorist attacks on various government organizations, a majority of firms and governments are further implementing facial recognition biometric technology. Also, rising applications in intelligent signage and physical security and varied technology advancements such as 3D-technology based recognition systems and cloud-based services has led to an increased use of facial recognition technology. However, high concerns pertaining to the shared personal data, lack of accuracy, and high cost of implementation are set to hamper the market expansion of facial recognition in some regions. Also, technologically advanced facial recognition systems with varied application in drones and mobile security will further create better opportunities in the upcoming years.
The major factors driving the market growth includes high demand for advanced security & surveillance systems in government and civil agencies to augment security and safety. The incidents pertaining to data breach cases has increased significantly during the period from 2011 to 2015, due to lack of laws related to data security and rising generation of digital content. The increasing number of cases related to data breach and senseless force attacks have raised the demand for advanced surveillance systems that has further led to the increased demand for facial recognition solutions. However, high cost of implementation and reduced accuracy has hampered the growth of this market. Maintenance costs and middleware costs also add up to the implementation cost. However, some manufacturers, such as FaceFirst, Inc., have initiated the usage of efficient algorithms such as FFT, PCA, in order to improve accuracy and limit the cost of facial recognition technology. Therefore, with the development in technology, the market is expected to witness increased adoption in varied applications in coming years.
