Facial recognition refers to a biometric technology for identifying faces and verifying the identity of an individual. Facial recognition software and systems use deep learning algorithms to capture, analyze and compare patterns, live captures or digital images to the stored faceprint repository to verify the identity.

It eliminates the need for physical contact for verification, can be integrated with existing security infrastructure and offers an improved level of security. It also enables faster data processing and facilitates automated authentication. As a result, facial recognition finds extensive applications for homeland security, criminal investigations, identity management, intelligent signage and photo indexing and sorting.

The increasing incidences of cyberattacks, terrorist activities and identity thefts across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the widespread utilization of smart surveillance systems, such as multi-factor authentication systems, is stimulating the market growth. Facial recognition provides high-level security to public and private organizations through accurate identification of individuals for access control. This, in turn, is bolstering their demand across the corporate sector and commercial spaces. These systems are also used in the healthcare sector to replace passwords and provide healthcare providers a quick access to the patient's medical records.

Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of 3D recognition systems, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. 3D facial recognition systems can operate in the dark, recognize faces from multiple viewing angles and determine changes in facial characteristics, age and gender. Such advanced features are contributing to the increasing demand for efficient facial recognition solutions across various industry sectors. Other factors, including the utilization of mobile security devices, drones and cloud-based surveillance systems, along with extensive infrastructural developments, are anticipated to drive the market further.
