Facial Recognition Market is segmented into Component, Technology, Application, End User Industry, and Region

The facial recognition market is forecasted to grow at a high rate owing to the accelerating demand for surveillance industry

The Global Facial Recognition Market was valued USD 3.6 Bn in 2020 is expected to reach USD 11.0 Bn by 2027, with a growing CAGR of 17.3% during the forecast period.

Face recognition is the process of detecting and recognizing an individual's identity with human facial features, utilizing images, videos, or real-time images for identification. Face recognition systems use computer algorithms to detect and select features and characteristics of a person's face. These features can include eyes gap, chin shape, skin texture, and iris.

The global facial recognition market is accounted to drive at a significant pace majorly owing to rising government initiatives to restructure and improve the existing security systems at varied applications such as airport security, state borders, law enforcement, crime sector, and much more. For instance, in August 2019, the USA government announced its plan to implement facial recognition systems at the airport. US government is extensively taking initiatives to restructure its security systems on airports in the nation.

Furthermore, multiple North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) member banks are planning to use face and voice recognition technology for online identification. Companies have worked with the federal government to implement technologies for surveillance and identity management. For instance, in April 2018, Alibaba, a China-based e-commerce company has invested USD 600 million in SenseTime, a Hong Kong-based company that provides facial recognition software to companies and governments across China.
