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

The Global Facial Recognition market is witnessing an increasing number of mergers and acquisitions, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. The existing vendors and new entrants are taking the acquisitive route to either enter the market or broaden their portfolio of offerings. For instance, the French defense company Safran Group completed the acquisition of biometric solution provider L-1 Identity Solutions in July 2011 for US$1.09 billion. The acquisition helped Safran become a leading player in the Global Facial Recognition market. Similarly, 3M completed the acquisition of Cogent Inc. in December 2010 for US$943 million. In addition, Google acquired Ukrainian augmented and facial recognition start-up Viewdle for approximately US$30 million in 2012.
