Affective computing market is estimated to grow at a CAGR 35.89% rate during the forecast period. Major factors contributing to the growth of the market are the increasing adoption of human and machine interaction technologies. The market for affective computing systems has already started to evolve, with enabling technologies already being adopted across verticals, such as academia & research, media & entertainment, government & defense, healthcare & life sciences, IT & telecom, retail & e-Commerce, BFSI, automotive, and others, including, travel, security, energy & power, and consumer electronics. This market study has been further segmented into four regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW).


The hardware segment of the affective computing market is segregated into cameras, sensors, storage devices & processors, and other components, including power management systems, touchpoints/displays, radios/antennas, microphones, and speakers. Deployment of cameras for affective computing is expected to witness notable growth over the coming years, owing to the rising demand in facial feature extraction software.


The healthcare and life sciences vertical is expected to have the largest market share in terms of affective computing technology implementation, owing to the large number of application areas in the vertical, which include facial expression recognition for the especially abled children (autism, dyslexia, and others) and detection of psychological disorders.


North America is estimated to hold the largest market share owing to the presence of a large number of enterprises deploying affective computing technologies, along with technological advanced scenarios. However, APAC offers the potential growth opportunities for the affective computing market to emerge over the coming years and surpass the North American market in terms of technology adoption. The key factors driving the growth rate in the APAC region include increasing technological implementations and rising smart city investments.
