Affective Computing Market Analysis, Regional Analysis 2021: 2027

Market Research Future (MRFR) predicts the global Affective Computing Market to grow exponentially from 2021 to 2027 (forecast period).

Affective Computing Market Scenario:

Market Research Future (MRFR) predicts the global Affective Computing Market to grow exponentially from 2021 to 2027 (forecast period).

Affective computing is a multidisciplinary area of research that encompasses psychology, cognitive science, physiology, and computer science. Facial expressions, posture, gestures, speech, keystroke force or rhythm, and temperature changes of the hand on a mouse all indicate changes in the user's emotional state, and these can be identified and interpreted by a computer. For example, the technology includes wristbands that attempt to detect emotional cues in users through vital signs.

The market's major players are primarily focused on affective computing in order to develop highly intelligent systems for improved human-machine interaction. The primary goal of affective computing is to create a computing device that can gather clues to user emotion from a variety of sources. Computing will impact many industrial applications, including consumer electronics, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), security, healthcare, virtual reality, and robotics.

One of the major market drivers is the growing adoption of connected devices across various end-user industries, as well as continuous advancements in enabling affective computing technology. However, inadequate standards and high production costs are expected to impede market development.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Affective Computing Market

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, different governments and regulatory bodies require both public and private organizations to adopt new procedures for operating remotely while maintaining social distance. Since then, the digital ways of doing business have become the latest business continuity plan (BCP) for many companies. With the extensive use of mobile devices and Internet penetration across the world, people are increasingly turning to emerging technologies such as facial recognition, speech recognition, and gesture recognition to stay connected virtually.

Organizations, on the other hand, are implementing various concepts such as bring your own device (BYOD) and work from home (WFH) to modernize their work cultures. To mitigate the spread of the virus, organizations can use affective computing solutions like facial feature recognition and camera sensors for temperature sensing. Many industries are investing heavily in RD to build analytics software to track the spread of COVID-19.
