Global Gesture Recognition Market for Desktop and Portable PCs 2015-2019
About Gesture Recognition
Gesture recognition is the ability of a device to identify and respond to different gestures, such as movement of hands, fingers, arms, head, or the entire body, of an individual. Gesture recognition technology can be 2D-based or 3D-based. It uses a camera-enabled device that beams an invisible infrared light onto the individual, which is reflected back to the camera and onto a gesture recognition IC. The IC, with the help of gesture recognition software, creates depth maps of the images received and responds appropriately to the movements. Thus, no physical contact is required between individuals and devices. Gesture recognition technology when combined with voice recognition, facial recognition, eye-tracking, and other related technologies provide a very powerful technology that can completely change the way we control machines.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Gesture Recognition Market for Desktop and Portable PCs 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Gesture Recognition Market for Desktop and portable PCs: EyeSight Technologies, PointGrab, Intel, and SoftKinetic.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One major trend upcoming in this market is the advent of Pico projectors. These projectors are tiny and lightweight, and are highly portable. With such a projector, the user has to simply place the PC on a table, switch on the projector, run AR games, and use gestures to play games on any surface.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers that promote growth in this market is the increasing adoption of gesture recognition technology by pc manufacturers. Since PCs hold the largest share in the global gesture recognition market, incorporation of 3D cameras will provide more value to the customers.
Further, the report states that the declining global PC market is one of the major challenges that the market faces. Due to the increasing adoption of smartphones and tablets the market for PCs will decline during the next five years. This will negatively impact the gesture recognition market for desktops as the number of PCs sold is expected to decrease during the forecast period.
