The global image recognition market is expected to reach USD 80.07 Billion by 2026, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Image recognition is the process of recognizing and detecting an object or a feature in a digital image or video. Computers utilize machine vision technologies coupled with a camera and artificial intelligence software to realize image recognition.

Increasing demand for image recognition in security applications is likely to drive the market growth in the forecast period. Companies are emphasizing on identifying fraud detection, reduce the need for traditional passwords, and to enhance the ability to differentiate between a human face and a photograph. For instance, Trueface.AI, the developers of Chui, a facial recognition doorbell, is implementing facial recognition and deep learning technology to distinguish a human face from a photograph.

The proliferation of smart devices is anticipated to drive the market demand in the upcoming years. Recently there has been demand backed by substantial promotional activities for facial biometrics in smartphones. For example, Apple iPhone X, featuring a Face ID facial recognition, shipped 16.0 million units and was the world's best-selling smartphone model in the first quarter of 2018.

Barcode scanning enables retail workers to easily track fast selling products, which in turn leads to quicker stock replenishment and aids to keep pace with customer demand. Further, barcode scanning lets retailers get a better insight into customer buying behaviors, as a result of which retailers can make necessary decisions to maintain their profitability.
