The global face recognition door lock market size was USD 737.6 million in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with face recognition door locks witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a lower growth of 14.3% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 844.6 million in 2021 to USD 2,414.2 million in 2028 at a CAGR of 16.2% during the 2021-2028 period. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Face recognition door lock is a smart security solution based on facial recognition technology and other devices such as a camera. The system offers real-time information of the visitor by detecting the face and offers various features such as friends and family data, blacklist options, and instant alerts on smartphones. The growing demand for a smart security solution, smart cities, and smart homes is expected to boost the market growth. Further, with advanced technology integration, the solution providers offer highly accurate detection technology to reduce security risk. This is expected to fuel the demand for a facial recognition-based smart door lock system.

COVID-19 Impact

COVID-19 Outbreak to Fuel Demand for Touch-free Security System

The outbreak of COVID-19 has drastically affected the people and the manufacturing industries across the globe. The sudden lockdown has hampered the production units across the countries. Similarly, the manufacturing and production plants of face recognition door locks have suffered during the pandemic. This is due to the disturbance in the supply chain, reduced availability of resources, labor, and staff. Thus, the market has witnessed a lower growth rate.

However, post-lockdown, the supply chain sector observed the industry's re-establishment while driving smart security solutions. The pandemic has surged the demand for touch-free smart security solutions such as face recognition door locks, and smart doorbell, among others owing to the fear of virus transmission. This is expected to drive the growth of the market post-pandemic.

Similarly, various companies focus on developing innovative smart door lock products to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on security applications. For instance, in May 2020, ZKTeco launched a smart camera with temperature detection and mask detection techniques, along with smart visible light facial recognition technology. The camera helps maintain the customer's safety at home and is equipped with remote monitoring features. Similarly, other companies are offering contactless and touch-free security systems with facial recognition technology. This is expected to facilitate the demand for facial ID smart door lock systems in the long term.

Integration of Advanced Technology with Facial Recognition Technology to Fuel Market Growth

The application of facial recognition technology is gaining traction across various businesses due to the growing implementation of face identification-based security solutions. Additionally, the companies are highly investing in offering an advanced and improved version of face recognition technology. With the integration of advanced technologies such as deep learning, the internet of things (IoT), and artificial intelligence, the security system has gained a significantly high accuracy rate in detecting faces. The security solution providers can offer automation, high security, ease of utilization, advanced customization features, and more by adopting advanced technology. This is expected to surge the demand for face recognition door lock systems. For instance,

  • In February 2020: smart door lock provider SensibleVision, headquartered in the US, announced a partnership with Inuitive to enhance facial recognition-based smart door locks. The partnership is aimed at adopting advanced technology to boost the system's accuracy rate.

  • In September 2020: ZKTeco, a China-based company, announced Visible Light Facial Recognition, a modern technology based on deep learning technology. The company has highly invested in research and development to provide improved technology for various applications. The technology has accelerated the detection of face ID in smart lock systems.


Increasing Demand for Smart Security Systems to Drive Market Growth

A smart door lock system is one of the integral types of smart security solutions. The high internet penetration, clusters of connected devices, and smart technology adoption boost the demand for smart security solutions for personal and industrial applications. Furthermore, the increasing implementation of technologies such as artificial intelligence, deep learning, and the internet of things propel the demand for smart security solutions due to their accuracy and precision to recognize facial expressions.

With the technological advancements in biometric solutions, the integration of biometrics such as facial recognition, iris recognition, and fingerprint with the face recognition door lock system is gaining popularity. The high accuracy and capabilities of facial recognition technology are expected to surge the adoption of facial recognition-based security solutions. For instance, Austria-based Nuki integrated its smart door lock systems with facial recognition technology. Its facial recognition offers live detection of faces and reduces fake facial prototypes such as photos, videos, or silicone masks. The adoption of advanced technology and 3D solutions of facial ID technique improves the detection accuracy. This is expected to fuel the face recognition door lock market growth.


Low Detection Accuracy Rate to Limit Market Growth

The implementation of facial recognition in door lock systems is gaining traction. However, there are some drawbacks to using facial recognition technology in a smart locking system. The face detection accuracy in the system has yet to reach 100%. This can impact the implementation of facial ID solutions in highly secured areas. Furthermore, the low battery backup, loss of internet connection, facial expression changes over the period, and privacy issues are likely to hamper the adoption of the technology.
