This market research report identifies Nuance Communications, 3M Cogent, Assa Alboy, Motekforce Link, and Gemalto as some of the key players in the global touchless sensing equipment market. The report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by technology (voice recognition, touchless sanitary ware, iris recognition, automatic doors, contactless card access systems, and gait analysis systems) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global outlook of the touchless sensing equipment market

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global touchless sensing equipment market will grow steadily during the predicted period and will post a CAGR of more than 10% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the increase in demand for touchless sensing in mobile devices to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. Several countries such as Australia, the Philippines, the US, the UK, India, and Chile have imposed strict restrictions that prevent the use of mobile devices while driving. The introduction of these regulations has resulted in the augmented demand for touchless sensing technologies such as voice recognition in mobile devices. As a result, there is an increasing demand and adoption of mobile devices equipped with voice recognition applications, which induces vendors to increase their R&D investment and develop applications with voice command options. Additionally, the demand for facial recognition systems in smartphones will also drive the demand for the market in the coming years.

The demand for advanced authentication processes will soon result in the implementation of voice recognition systems in mobile banking as well. Financial institutions will start using voice-based authentication solutions to accept or reject mobile transactions. In addition to advanced security, voice recognition systems are also cost-effective, which will increase their adoption in mobile banking in the next few years. The voice recognition system provided by one of the leading vendors, Nuance Communications, is already being used by financial institutions such as Barclays Wealth, ING, and Santander.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a number of large and small-scale vendors which often leads to price wars, in turn, intensifying the level of competition among vendors. Large vendors usually focus on the development of high-quality interfaces, whereas the small scale manufacturers focus on providing effective solutions to SMEs. The market is completely technology intensive which induces large players to acquire smaller players to maintain their market position. The need for a huge capital investment and the presence of large vendors restricts the entry of new players in the market.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Nuance Communications
  • ValidSoft
  • Grohe
