Facial recognition is a biometric security system that identifies a person from a digital image or video frame. Unlike fingerprints and iris recognition, the facial recognition system focuses on the facial features of a person. Facial features such as cheek bones, and the distance between eyes, and eye-brows are the factors that are used to differentiate customers; therefore, the need for physical contact of the subject for identification is not necessary. The facial recognition technology, though being relatively new, can be integrated into the existing surveillance systems.
The 3D integration would support better object recognition and overcome barriers of 2D facial recognition such as light and pose deflections of an object. Covert monitoring of an individual could be a threat to privacy and would be a hindering factor to the growth of the market. Increased adoption of facial recognition technology in web applications for picture tagging, social interaction, and others nevertheless is expected to drive the demand for facial recognition system.
The report highlights the adoption of facial recognition. Based on the technology type, the facial recognition market is segmented into 2D, 3D and facial analytics. Based on the component type, the market is segmented across hardware and software. The hardware segment is further subdivided across scanners, cameras, hand held devices and integrated devices.
