Touchless Sensing Technology Market is driven by several factors like:

  • Hygiene
  • Low Maintenance Cost
  • Government Measures for Water Conservation
  • Tourism and Hospitality Industry and Many More

Touch-less sensing helps in maintaining good hygiene. For example, in touchless sanitary equipment, one does not need to tap the faucet or the soap dispenser to avail of its function. The sensor senses the hand close to the equipment and performs its functions. This minimizes cross-contamination and maintains 100% hygiene.

Increasing security concerns for both physical and cyber access is the main reason for the growth of the Touchless Biometric Market. Biometrics solution for several applications like automotive, banking & finance, commercial security, defense, travel & immigration and many more. The latest trends that are currently changing the pace of the market include; the legislative compliance to avoid fraud, use of multi model authentication in banking & finance, increasing security concerns for network, pc and internet security, smartphone-based mobile device.

Gesture Recognition Technology was there in the market since a long time but the first commercialized touch-less gesture recognition device was launched in 2010.
