The global speech and voice recognition market size was valued at USD 12.62 billion in 2023. The market is projected to be worth USD 15.46 billion in 2024 and reach USD 84.97 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 23.7% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Pattern recognition is used to turn speech into a series of words in speech and voice recognition technologies. This enables users to receive prompt responses by verbally addressing the systems rather than typing or scrolling through the screen with the assistance of voice and speech software.

Moreover, ongoing advances in Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning (ML), and Automated Speech Recognition (ASR), along with the massive amount of data and availability of AI based platforms have led to an exponential increase in the capabilities to process voice at a larger scale. For instance,

  • In August 2023, Meta introduced an AI model for speech and text translation into nearly a hundred languages. By reducing delays and errors in the translation process, this new model improves efficiency and quality.

  • In August 2021, LumenVox launched Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) engine with transcription. The next-generation speech and voice recognition technology was built on deep Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), delivering accurate speech-enabled customer experiences.

The COVID-19 pandemic augmented the development of various technologies that stimulate safety and social distancing, from telemedicine to contactless payments. Speech and voice recognition software played a vital role during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speech and Voice Recognition Market Trends

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to be the Nexus Point of Innovation and a Key Trendsetter for Speech and Voice Recognition

The evolution of artificial intelligence is creating potential opportunities for the digitalization of numerous industries. The dominance of AI-powered devices indicates that search algorithms and systems have evolved to improve machine learning and its applications in daily life. Google's RankBrain is a crucial example designed to recognize phrases and words to learn, understand, and better predict outcomes. It uses machine learning and natural language processing technologies to transcript voice searches.

Moreover, web conferencing tools have gained popularity in the industry. Speech and voice recognition technology can further improve web conferencing by providing post-call transcripts through real-time captioning from calls.

As per the Speechmatics Voice report, in 2021, web conference transcription accounts for around 44% of the voice technology market share and is one of the top applications that will have the most significant commercial impact.

Speech and Voice Recognition Market Growth Factors

Rising Use of Deep Neural Engines and Networks to Increase Speech and Voice System Demand

Superior adoption of emerging technologies, such as IoT, AI, and machine learning, fuels the speech and voice recognition market growth. Voice-based authentications in smartphone applications have increased the demand for voice and speech biometric systems. Moreover, the usage of deep learning and neural networks in applications, such as audio-visual speech recognition, isolated word recognition, speaker adaptation, and digital speaker recognition, is propelling the demand for voice technologies. Key players are focusing on such emerging technological advancements to grow their businesses in the long run. For instance,

  • In April 2022, Google LLC released speech recognition technology to help boost the voice UI. Google's Speech-to-Text API utilizes a neural sequence-to-sequence model to further develop exactness in 23 dialects and 61 of the supported localities.  


Speaker Diarization & Accuracy in Multilinguistic Approach to Hinder Speech Recognition Technology Demand

As voice technology continues to excel, developers and engineers have been trying to surpass difficulties related to speech software. Factors frequently seen hindering the seamless performance of speech and voice recognition systems include fluency, punctuation, accent, technical words/jargon, background noise, and speaker identification. One of the biggest challenges in voice is the breakthrough in accuracy for languages other than American English. As per the Speechmatics Voice report, in 2021, around 30.4% and 21.2% account for concerns related to accent and dialect, respectively.

Voice-based technologies will sustain to deliver more customized experiences as they better differentiate and identify users' voices. However, the threat to voice data privacy remains, which hinders the market growth.
