According to the new research report released by the research institute markets and markets, the global gesture recognition market is expected to reach US $18.98 billion in 2022, with a compound annual growth rate of 29.63% in the forecast period (2017-2022); In 2022, the market scale of non-contact recognition (face recognition, fingerprint recognition, iris recognition and speech recognition) will reach 15.27 billion US dollars, and the compound annual growth rate in the forecast period (2017-2022) will be 17.44%.

Gesture recognition technology is widely used, but there are many shortcomings

The report points out that the wide application of gesture recognition control function in automobiles, the continuous improvement of digital level among industries, the government policy drive and the use of contactless health solutions are the main driving forces driving the growth of global gesture recognition and contactless sensing market.

Application advantages and disadvantages of gesture recognition technology

1. Low technical complexity

Gesture recognition technology simplifies the operation process of the terminal device, users do not need to understand the function of the device before using, and users have a high degree of adoption. Because of the low complexity of gesture recognition technology, good user friendliness and easy for end users to learn, the future gesture recognition market will usher in growth.

The application of gesture recognition technology eliminates the necessity of any physical connection of electronic devices to control it, and it is more interactive than touch screen. Therefore, the technology not only provides convenience for users, but also has various advantages in many application fields such as automobile and medical treatment. Through gesture recognition, users can control the vehicle infotainment system through simple gestures. Similarly, in healthcare applications, surgeons can use gesture recognition to control surgery video through gestures, thus eliminating the need for control.

2. There is no sense of touch

Touch refers to any interaction produced by touch. With gesture recognition, the user’s whole activity is touch free. Users can play video games through gesture interaction instead of remote control. Perhaps the initial user may feel uncomfortable and need some time to learn how gesture recognition works, but. Due to consumer awareness and the popularity of gesture based devices, it is expected that the impact of this restriction will be reduced over the forecast period.

3. High power consumption

Gesture processing requires high-level software algorithms, which leads to high battery consumption and increased use of processor space. Devices such as smartphones, laptops, media players and tablets are all power sensitive. Many semiconductor manufacturers focus on integrated chip level software to reduce costs and develop processors that support gesture recognition. Therefore, the impact of power limitation is not expected to be significant during the forecast period.

In addition, every time users want to use gesture recognition function, they need to turn on the camera.

Market share of gesture recognition and contactless recognition

Gesture recognition and non touch biometrics involve RFID technology, imaging technology (face recognition, fingerprint recognition, iris recognition, etc.), sensor and voice technology. Markets and markets pointed out that touch based gesture recognition technology accounted for a large share of gesture recognition market in 2016, because of the large customer base of touch based devices. It is understood that there are two kinds of gesture recognition technology based on touch: multi touch and action gesture. These technologies allow users to make specific gestures by touching the device or through a controller connected to the device.

Gesture recognition and non touch recognition technology are mainly used in consumer electronics, government, finance and banking, medical and automotive industries. Among them, consumer electronics industry occupies the largest market share in 2016, while the growth rate of health care industry will be the highest during the forecast period. The growing concern of the health care industry is expected to have a significant impact on the gesture recognition market, and will accelerate the adoption of gesture control devices throughout the forecast period. Therefore, the convenience related to gesture control equipment is expected to affect the medical industry in the forecast period.

Market share of gesture recognition and contactless recognition

Geographically, in the forecast period, thanks to the growing demand for consumer electronics products, the Asia Pacific region will occupy a dominant position in the global gesture recognition and contactless recognition market, and the Asia Pacific region will maintain the highest growth rate in the forecast period. The growing demand for gesture recognition products such as smart phones, laptops and tablets, and smart TVs has driven the growth of gesture recognition market in the region.

The touch recognition market is dominated by the Americas. This is mainly driven by large-scale government funded projects such as the visa waiver program (VWP), which enables people from some countries to travel to the United States without a visa. However, the developing countries in the Asia Pacific region have great growth potential, providing a good environment for product manufacturers. Therefore, in the forecast period, the non touch recognition market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the fastest speed.

Finally, the report also points out that the complex framework of gesture recognition technology may bring challenges to manufacturers in the gesture recognition market. Similarly, dealing with relatively high-end biometric products may pose challenges for manufacturers and end users in the touch free sensing market.
