“Rising need for socially intelligent artificial agents that offer assistance to human-computer interaction and growing presence of artificial agents in social environments to drive the overall growth of the emotion detection and recognition market.”
The global emotion detection and recognition market size is projected to grow from USD 21.6 billion in 2019 to USD 56.0 billion by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.0% during the forecast period. Rising need for socially intelligent artificial agents, increasing demand for speech-based biometric systems to enable multifactor authentication, technological advancements across the globe, and the growing need for high operational excellence are expected to enhance the use of emotion detection and recognition solutions across the globe. However, high production costs and integration of new emotion detection and recognition technologies with existing legacy systems are expected to restrain the market growth.

By software tool, the biosensing software tools and apps segment to hold the largest market size in 2019
Biosensing software tools and apps collect human gestures through sensors, such as Electrocardiography (ECG), Electroencephalography (EEG), Electromyography (EMG), eye tracking sensors, and wearables. These software tools convert the collected inputs into mathematical form and interpret them for various applications, which is used in online learning systems, law enforcement sectors (applications, such as lie-detection and other threat detection), and healthcare. The use of biosensing software tools and apps to analyze growing inputs from the increasing adoption of biosensors, such as wearables, can act as a game changer for this particular market.

By end user, the industrial segment to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period
The industrial end user includes big manufacturing giants and heavy industrial equipment manufacturers, such as automobile, chemical industry, real estate, renting and leasing, textile industry, brewing industry, and the energy industry, which consists of the electricity industry, natural gas industry, and the petroleum industry. These end users deploy emotion detection and recognition software to minimize or restrict fraudulent activities. Emotion detection and recognition software can also be integrated with devices and applications of other automotive industries to have an emotional connect with the users and track the data with emotion sensors to gain a deeper understanding and improve customer experiences.

Asia Pacific to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period
Asia Pacific (APAC) has witnessed an advanced and dynamic adoption of new technologies and is expected to record the highest CAGR in the global emotion detection and recognition market during the forecast period. APAC constitutes major economies, such as China, Japan, and Australia, which are expected to register high growth rates in the emotion detection and recognition market.

End users, such as industrial, commercial, and enterprises are expected to adopt emotion detection and recognition solutions at the highest rate in the region. Companies operating in APAC would benefit from the flexible economic conditions, industrialization-motivated policies of the governments, as well as from the growing digitalization, which is expected to have a significant impact on the business community.
