North America voice and speech recognition market size, by technology, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

The integration of voice-enabled in-car infotainment systems is gaining popularity across the globe as several countries initiate “hands-free” regulations that govern the use of mobile phones while driving. The developers of voice and speech products are focusing on innovations, which are expected to accelerate the market growth over the forecast period. The use of voice recognition technology in smartphones enables doctors and clinicians to translate their voice into a rich, detailed clinical description, which is recorded in the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. The increasing penetration of voice-enabled IoT devices in smart home automation is expected to drive the market in the near future. IoT-enabled devices would benefit a number of traditionally offline devices with innovative means of user interactions in addition to traditional means, such as touch screens and buttons.

Functions Insights

On the basis of functions, the global market has been further segmented into voice recognition and speech recognition. In terms of revenue, the speech recognition segment accounted for a dominant share of more than 65.1% of the global market in 2022. Automobiles and mobile phones are suitable for speech recognition implementations. The increasing mobility of society requires accessibility to data and services anytime and anywhere. Cloud and client-based speech recognition employments can significantly augment the customer experience and provide optimization in cost-saving for companies.

Furthermore, this technology has been assisting doctors and radiologists in maintaining records of patients owing to benefits, such as reducing the report turnaround time and assisting doctors in record keeping. The integration of speech recognition with Virtual Reality (VR) is expected to lead to enhanced market demand. For instance, in February 2017, Facebook enhanced its VR platform, Oculus rift, by adding speech recognition to the VR gear of the oculus rift. On the other hand, the voice recognition segment is projected to record the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.

Technology Insights

On the basis of technologies, the global market has been further bifurcated into Artificial Intelligence based and non-artificial intelligence based. The non-Artificial intelligence based technology segment accounted for a dominant share of more than 71.7% of the global revenue in 2022. The segment is estimated to retain the leading position growing at a steady CAGR from 2023 to 2030. On the other hand, the Artificial intelligence based technology segment is expected to register the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. The demand for Artificial intelligence based technology is on the rise as the system recognizes the patterns of speech accurately.

Artificial intelligence exceptionally converts speech into well-structured algorithms by undergoing certain stages, including the representation of speech units, formulation, and development of recognition algorithms along with the demonstration of correct inputs. The rising developments in machine learning and natural language processing are expected to boost the growth of the Artificial intelligence based technology segment. A rising number of Artificial intelligence based digital assistants, such as Alexa and Cortana, are expected to drive the demand for voice and speech recognition solutions over the forecast period.

Vertical Insights

On the basis of verticals, the global market has been further divided into the automotive, enterprise, consumer, BFSI, government, retail, healthcare, military, legal, education, and others. In terms of revenue, the healthcare segment accounted for the highest share of more than 28.9% in 2022. Speech recognition boosts the process of data capturing in EHR systems. This process empowers physicians to interact with the system by speaking a few words. Speech recognition is still in the developing stage and deployed in individual segments of healthcare, which include radiology, pathology, emergency medicine, and others.

The automotive vertical also has a significant market share. The enhancement of automotive technologies, such as connected devices would update the driver with traffic conditions on the route and alternative routes. Voice & speech recognition technologies are expected to have a wide scope of application in consumer and retail verticals over the forecast period on account of the rising adoption of connected devices and growing penetration of personal assistants, such as Google Home and Amazon Alexa, in the Europe and Asia Pacific regions.

Regional Insights

On the basis of geographies, the global market has been further divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle & East Africa. North America accounted for the maximum share of more than 31.9% of the global revenue in 2022. The region is expected to expand further at a steady CAGR retaining the dominant market position over the forecast period. The growing adoption of voice-enabled applications in smartphones and the increasing use of voice & speech recognition in mobile banking, consumer electronics, and IoT devices are expected to drive the market in the North America region.

Voice And Speech Recognition Market Trends by Region, 2023-2030

In Europe, speech & voice recognition technologies are expected to witness increased applications in the consumer electronics and retail sectors owing to the rising trend of connected devices in automotive and home automation. The demand for speech & voice recognition is growing in China, Japan, and Singapore, which is expected to fuel the market growth in the Asia Pacific region. The regional market is estimated to register the fastest CAGR from 2023 to 2030. The rising penetration of voice-enabled devices in the automobile and healthcare segments is also expected to boost the APAC regional market growth.
