Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Facial Recognition Market Report, 2016" report to their offering.


The analysts forecast the Global Facial Recognition market to grow at a CAGR of 24.5 percent over the period 2012-2016.

One of the drivers in this market is the growing need for high-level security in the Government sector.

In addition, Google acquired Ukrainian augmented and facial recognition start-up Viewdle for approximately US$30 million in 2012.
