Image recognition is a method used to acquire, process, and scrutinize images. The technique is used to gather high-dimensional data for the purpose of generating numerical or symbolic information. Image recognition incorporates disentangling of representational information from the data gathered from the image by using replica created with the help of geometry, physics, statistics, and learning theory. The recognition based on passwords and PINs are gaining widespread acceptance, as it is hard to crack and difficult to steal or duplicate. Additionally, misplacing of cards, tokens, keys etc. have a detrimental effect on the system; therefore, the image recognition as a technology is gaining prominence. To add to the popularity, the smartphones and devices with cameras have further driven the market growth. Growing demand for security applications and products enabled with image recognition functions will have a significant impact on the market growth. Different sectors such as retail, automotive, healthcare, and defense, are widely adopting the image recognition technology within the working environment. Low-resolution image size and storage are some factors that would restrict the market growth. Based on the Component, the market is segmented into Hardware, Software, and Services.
