With social distancing measures being aggressively imposed by most countries, governments and private sector organizations are rapidly deploying face recognition tools to screen and identify individuals. In India, for instance, Arvi, a health tech start-up, introduced contactless thermal scanning kiosks in June 2020, which use facial recognition tools equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities. These kiosks are capable of detecting face through face-masks and checking temperatures of individuals through a thermal screening process. In another instance, Universal Studios in Singapore installed facial recognition scanners, which visitors will have to pass before entering the park, in August 2020. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic is speeding up the adoption of image recognition solutions to curtail the spread of the virus.

Market Restraint

Increasing Number of Bans on Facial Recognition Tools to Limit Market Growth

Chief among the factors limiting the image recognition market growth is the growing clamor around the world to ban the use of facial identification technologies. Such technologies, according to many experts, erode privacy, incite racial and cultural biases, and can be easily misused by those in power. Citing these dangers of image recognition technologies, activists, policymakers, and ordinary citizens around the world are demanding that these technologies need to be discarded. For example, Democrats in the US introduced the ‘Facial Recognition and Biometric Technology Moratorium Act’ in June 2020 to ban the use of facial recognition tools by federal law enforcement agencies. Tech companies are responding on similar lines. In Europe, the European Union is mulling a ban on facial recognition in public places for five years.  These governmental measures are likely to inhibit the growth of this market in the coming years.
