Automotive Gesture Recognition Systems Market by Component Type (Touch Based Systems, and Touchless Systems), Authentication Type (Hand/Fingerprint/Leg, Face, Vision/iris), Application (Lighting System), and Region – Global Forecast to 2021″, The automotive GRS Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 30.5%, to reach USD 3,144.8 million by 2021. The focus on enhanced user experience in the various applications and increasing awareness about driver safety and regulations is projected to drive the automotive GRS market. The introduction of autonomous and electric vehicles is expected to accelerate the demand for gesture recognition systems in the near future. It is consequently a major driver for the automotive GRS industry.

The future of gesture recognition would be highly dependent on its acceptance amongst end users; which, in turn, would depend on its reliability among many other factors. The integration of multiple technologies enables accurate functioning as well as enhances user experience and comfort. The integration of hand, facial or voice, foot operated recognition technologies in the automotive industry allows a user to control the vehicle infotainment systems, opening, and closing windows, liftgates etc. with the use of cameras and sensors. A user can log in or activate a gesture recognition device or interface with the use of hand, face or voice and also by foot recognition. This would enable only the right user to control the device. Also, when a device is integrated with more than one technology such as 3D vision based and also Time-of-flight, an end user can make gestures depending on its usage.

The fastest growing market for the automotive GRS is the Asia-Pacific market, which holds a majority of the share of the automotive GRS market by value and volume. The major contributors to the growth of this market are China, Japan, and India, which are some of the largest markets for automobiles. Increasing disposable income in these regions is expected to increase consumer spending on premium features in a vehicle, which will also contribute to the growth of the automotive GRS market.

The next emerging market is the multimedia/infotainment/navigation market, as the OEMs are focusing on automotive GRS technology development. As the number of premium cars continues to increase, OEMs are majorly focusing on decreasing the driver distraction factors by reducing driver workload and by simplifying the controls for interacting with these systems. As per the current market scenario, the new gesture-based multimedia and infotainment systems are in demand by the OEMs. For instance, SoftKinetic together with Melexis (Belgium) announced the availability of the first 3D sensor for automobile safety and infotainment markets. It is used for natural 3D gesture recognition and robust driver monitoring, which brings a new level of infotainment navigation control and safety features.
