Scope of Global Gesture Recognition Market Report- 

Gesture recognition is the transformation of primate movements or gestures into machine orders utilizing numerical algorithms. Technology enables a person to interact with a machine using human gestures and movements, such as hand, finger, hand, head, or whole-body movements. Gestures can arise from any physical movement or position but usually from the face or hands. Major focus in the field includes recognizing emotions from face and hand gestures. Users can control or interact with devices without physically touching those using simple gestures. A number of methods have been developed using camera and computer vision algorithms to interpret sign language. However, gait, posture, proximity, and recognition of human behaviour are also the subject of gesture recognition techniques. Gesture recognition can be seen as a way for computers to begin to understand human body language, thus creating a better bridge between machines & humans than the old text user interface or even the GUI (graphical user interface), which still limits most of the input on the keyboard and communicate naturally without a mouse and any mechanical equipment. 

The Covid-19 pandemic has also impacted the growth of the global gesture recognition market owing to the closure of various businesses. In addition, disturbance in supply chain network owing to lockdown and  other factors have also affected the market growth during the pandemic. 

The global gesture recognition market is segmented based on the type, technology, end-user, and region & country level. By type, the global gesture recognition market is segmented into online, and offline. Based on technology, the global gesture recognition market is segmented into touchless and touch-based. By end-user, the global gesture recognition market is segmented into healthcare, consumer electronics, industrial, automotive, and others.

Researchers Developed New Hand Gesture Recognition Algorithm 

On December 28th, 2021; a team of researchers led by Xi Yu of Sun Yat-sen University developed a new hand gesture recognition algorithm that is complex, accurate, and applicable. Hand gestures are increasingly being adopted for human-computer interaction, and recent advances in camera systems, image analysis, and machine learning have greatly improved optical-based gesture recognition. 

Scientists Developed Artificial Intelligence System for High Precision Recognition of Hand Gestures 

On August 14th, 2020; Scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that recognizes hand gestures by combining skin-like electronics with computer vision. The introduction of human hand gestures by AI systems has been a valuable development in the last decade and has been adopted in high-precision surgical robots, health monitoring equipment, and gaming systems. 

Increasing Demand from Automotive Industry in Order to Offer Driver Safety, and Rising Adoption of Gesture Recognition in Consumer Electronics are Some of the Major Factors Driving the Market Growth  

One of the major factors driving the growth of the gesture recognition market is the increasing demand from the automotive industry in order to offer driver safety. Gesture recognition systems are progressively adopted in various vehicle types attributable to their capacity to give an elevated degree of accuracy and advance vehicle control as well as security. These systems can be worked involving human touch or different gestures to start and finish the necessary activities. Vehicle manufacturers across the globe are expanding the demand for technologically advanced tools in their items to offer a more significant level of safety standards and stay away from the interruption of drivers. Thus, the demand for automotive gestures is being expanded around the world. For example, in January 2020, Cerence Inc., a designer of AI assistance technology for vehicles, presented developments across its Clarence Drive stage, including button-free, gesture-based interactions to make a natural and human-like in-vehicle experience. 

In addition, the rising adoption of gesture recognition in consumer electronics is also boosting the growth of the gesture recognition market. The consumer electronics section is supposed to hold the leading position in the global gesture recognition market attributable to expanding digitization and adoption of gesture recognition innovation. A few organizations are likewise implementing this innovation which helps users to interact with computers and upgrades human-machine connection. This innovation additionally helps physically impaired individuals to operate devices. Home automation refers to the utilization of remote control, speech, the internet, and gestures to operate appliances. Human-computer interaction (HCI) is the technology of computers and humans understanding each other's language and making an easy-to-use interface. HCI utilizes a remote interface controlled by gestures, a non-verbal method for communication. Rising utilization of customer electronics and IoT gadgets because of the developing requirement for solace is additionally driving the market development. For example; with Google Assistant and Alexa built-in, TCL A TVs offer an AI answer for home life. One can undoubtedly control the TV and other home gadgets just with your voice. 

Moreover, the growing technological advancements & increasing digitization are also supplementing the market growth. For instance; as per the news published, on February 17th, 2022; Coolpo launched a new video conferencing product with gesture recognition. However, high-power utilization by gesture-related products and the high cost associated with gesture recognition may hinder the growth of the global gesture recognition market. Despite that, technological advancements in gesture recognition may create more opportunities for the further growth of the market. 

North America is Expected to Dominate the Global Gesture Recognition Market 

Geographically, North America is expected to dominate the global gesture recognition market within the forecast period due to the increasing adoption of gesture recognition, rising use of smartphones, and growing technological advancements in this region. The increasing adoption of gesture recognition in the consumer electronics and gaming industry is driving the growth of the market. For example; in September 2021, Alcatraz AI, a supplier of physical security advancements solutions, presented its new validation solution, the Rock. The solution limited touchpoints and offered facemask verification to guarantee the most extreme safety of employees in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. In addition, the rising use of smartphones is another factor supplementing the market growth in this region. With the most recent generation of smartphones boasting strong processors and built-in cameras, it becomes conceivable to foster complex and computational costly applications like a gesture recognition system.
