The global gesture recognition market was valued at US$ 9.6 Billion in 2019  and is expected to surpass US$ 36.3 Billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 22.9% during the forecast period (2020-2027), according to the Global Gesture Recognition Market Report, By Component Type ( Touched System and Touchless System), By End-Use Industry (Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, Healthcare, Retail, Gaming and Others), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa), published by Coherent Market Insights.

The increasing demand for gesture recognition technology in the automobile sector is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Technological advancements are enabling automotive vehicle manufacturers to implement gesture recognition feature in vehicle that allow driver/user to manage the control system of a car with ease. Gesture recognition technology also enhances car safety on the road. Moreover, increasing awareness regarding driver and passenger safety has led automakers to install various safety features in automobiles which can provide safety without affecting the interior system of the vehicle. Moreover, implementation of sensor-based electronic components has also increased in the past decade. The human-machine interface in the form of gesture recognition is also installed in automobiles. Additionally, government regulations to ensure driver safety are driving demand for gesture recognition features. However, adoption of touchless gesture recognition in simple operations can create complexity and hinder market growth.

Moreover electrification of automotive industry has led to introduction of autonomous and electric vehicles that are the highest consumers of electronic devices. An autonomous vehicle consists of an electronic device where the vehicle is guided by sensors with less human intervention. Sensor-based gesture recognition technology is being installed in several autonomous and electric vehicles. The growing importance of driver safety and the electrification in the automotive industry is creating new opportunities for growth of the gesture recognition market. In January 2020, Grupo Antolin announced a partnership with Eyesight Technologies. Through this partnership, Eyesight Technologies Driver Sense (Driver monitoring system) can track the driver's eye, eyelid, pupil, and head to determine the activeness, alertness, and attentiveness of the driver. Automotive manufacturers and product development engineers are developing a gesture detection systems based on different sensors and 3D tracking technology in order to achieve high efficiency. Disruptive innovation that focuses on reducing driver distraction and increasing comfort of drivers at affordable cost is also being introduced in the automotive industry.

Gesture Recognition Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several industries have witnessed a significant shift in their businesses. There has also been significant impact on gesture recognition market, as the Chinese automotive industry temporarily restricted their operations to curb the spread of COVID-19. Gesture recognition technology is used in automobiles to ensure safety to drivers and passengers. Furthermore, this trend has carried over to Europe and North America regions where factories were temporary closed due to nationwide lockdowns implemented in several countries. Additionally, the automotive industry witnessed significant drop in sales revenues. According to Coherent Market Insights analysis, in March 2020, China registered 8% drop in vehicle sales.
