The global affective computing market size is estimated to grow from USD 22,195 million in 2019 to USD 89,977 million by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 32.3% from 2019 to 2024.

Such growth in the market can be attributed to a revolution among organizations attempting to understand human behavior across industry verticals globally.

Affect is a phenomenon of psychology used to describe the interaction of an organism with stimuli, illustrating various experiences of emotions or feelings. Affective computing is the area of study where AI and cognitive computing are used to gather data related to human emotions, such as joy, sadness, anger, and disgust, and measure them.

A strong inclination toward this segment is driven by promising applications in areas such as Virtual Reality (VR), perceptual interface, affective agents, or recommender systems. Originally, the concept of affective computing was designed to recognize the user's expressions upon interaction with cognitive systems, but the concept has gradually widened further in many new areas, such as speech recognition and gesture recognition. These new application areas have imbued computers with human-like capabilities of interpretation, observation, and generation of interactive features.
