Innovation and Inventions in Gesture Recognition Market Seek to Make Machine-Human-Interaction More Natural

In the past few years, the field of human-computer-interaction has seen significant emphasis and a rising rate of research initiatives aimed at creating easy-to-use interfaces by directly employing manipulation skills and natural communication of humans. Many innovative products applying gesture recognition technologies have also been introduced in the market and have received far-ranging popularity. Many smartphones, consumer electronics products, smart TVs, gaming consoles have efficiently elucidated the ease with which one can now interact with machines.

The rising demand for gesture based products from the tech-savvy global population of today is significantly driving the global gesture recognition market. The market had a valuation of US$7.5 bn in 2014. The market is expected to expand at an impressive 20.3% CAGR between 2015 and 2021 and reach a valuation of US$29.1 bn by 2021, according to a research report on gesture recognition technology market by Transparency Market Research. The rising demand for 2D gesture recognition technology in consumer electronics as well as the rising applications of 3D gesture recognition in the automotive industry are prompting researchers to develop innovative ways of incorporating gestures in interaction with machines.

Market has Much More to Offer than Enhanced Intuitiveness of Consumer Electronics

A number of novel gesture recognition technologies have reached the consumer through innovative products in the past few years. By making mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers more intuitive, the market has demonstrated the potential of gesture recognition technologies to ensure user-friendliness in consumer electronics. This, however, is only a snapshot of the potential applications of gesture recognition technologies.


The market is seeing the introduction of novel ways of making machines understand human gestures. The various technologies of human gesture recognition integrated to ensure communication with machines are also continuously increasing. Researchers are taking efforts to perfect gesture technologies with their offerings, and are making the field increasingly sophisticated. Some companies are experimenting with ultrasonic waves to leverage the potential of touch-less gesture recognition, some are working towards the improvement of optical sensors for boosting the potential of gesture recognition devices. The examples are numerous, pointing towards the possibility of the introduction of new natural user interfaces that will allow humans to interact with machines with as much ease as is the interaction with humans.

Microsoft’s 3D In-Air Gesture Recognition System a worthy Contender


A recent news about the development of one such gesture recognition system by the technology giant Microsoft affirms this possibility. A patent application from Microsoft published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office reveals one such new-generation 3D gesture recognition system that apparently does not even require multitouch commands. The in-air gesture recognition system has been designed to work with both traditional consumer electronics devices such as smartphones and tablets as well as future smart devices like kitchen appliances with or without a display. It is being said that the system will be able to recognize figure and two-arm gestures when working with stuff like whiteboards.
