Far-Field Speech and Voice Recognition Market by Component (Microphones, DSP and Software), Application (Smart TV/STB, Smart Speakers, Automotive, and Robotics), Microphone Solutions (Single, Linear, Circular), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2024
“Far-Filed Speech and voice recognition market is expected to grow at CAGR of 23.89% from 2018 to 2024.”
The far-field speech and voice recognition market is expected to grow from USD 969 million in 2018 to USD 3,505 million by 2024, at a CAGR of 23.89%. The growth of the far-field speech and voice recognition market can be attributed to the advancement of deep-learning-based far-field microphones, growing impact of front-end hardware components on the accuracy of speech and voice recognition, and growth in voice control-based smart speakers. However, growing privacy threat from voice-enabled smart home devices and lack of accuracy in far-field speech and voice recognition systems in noisy and harsh environments are restraining the market growth.
“Software expected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
Software or deep learning plays a major role in voice pickup. It offers beamforming, spectral noise reduction, acoustic echo cancellation, and de-reverberation technologies to enhance speech recognition performance in far-field use cases and hence improve the quality of the input speech signal. Alango offers a voice enhancement package (VEP), a set of software technologies comprising a multi-microphone beamforming array and echo canceller, which support far-field speech recognition enhancement in smart home products, mobile phones, and automotive voice-controlled applications.
“Microphones expected to hold a largest market size of the far-field speech and voice recognition market throughout the forecast period.”
Far-field speech and voice recognition systems use multiple microphones in form of a linear or circular array to reduce the impact of noise and reverberation from the surrounding environment. In recent years the development of deep-learning-based trainable algorithm for far-field microphones has greatly reduced the limitation of signal distortion and loss of information. Microphones with machine learning, neural networks, and beamforming have improved front-end voice processing. Smart speaker from Google has been at the forefront in deploying deep learning-based microphones in their device. Using deep learning-based microphone, Google had reduced the number of microphones in their smart speakers to two microphones per device, whereas their arch-rival Amazon is using 7 microphones in a single smart speaker.
“Far-Field Speech and Voice Recognition market in RoW is expected to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period.”
The growing adoption of smart speakers and smart home devices in South America, Israel, and UAE is driving the growth of the far-field speech and voice recognition market in RoW. South Africa and Nigeria are also key revenue generators in the far-field speech and voice recognition market in RoW. IBM Watson and Google are progressively making strategic decisions to penetrate into the comparatively lesser tapped region. IBM Watson added the capability to understand the Arabic language, and this has increased the demand for IBM Watson in the MEA region. Furthermore, the falling price of smart speakers from Google and Amazon have also fueled the growth of smart home devices among middle class consumer in the Middle East & Africa.
