Facial recognition apps are becoming more and more common with every passing day as they are being deployed in different devices and different places for safety reasons and privacy concerns. People are getting more vigilant about their security and their privacy as technology undergoes significant developmental changes.
So much so that the global market size for facial recognition software and applications was evaluated at 3.5 billion USD in 2020 and it was predicted to reach a surprising all-time high of 8.5 billion USD in 2025 with a growth at a CAGR of 17.2%, which, if you ask us, is quite impressive. The Asia Pacific, however, was expected to have the highest growth in terms of CAGR out of the lot.
However, when it comes to the development of a facial recognition application, the biggest challenge is estimating the price. With inflation, rates of agencies, the number of hours required, and the number of people needed in a team to develop an face recognition app, it can be difficult to actually find an estimate close to the actual price however as a rough estimate facing recognition app development cost $60,000 to $200,000.
You will also find that there are expenses that companies often overlook and, as a result, they end up surpassing their allocated budget and often have to spend extra on their project. To save you from any such problem, we have broken down the total price and the factors that may affect the price to give you an accurate estimate if you want to develop a face recognition app. So, without further ado let’s see how much bank balance you are going to need for a facial recognition application:
The Best Face Recognition Apps of All Time
Before we even get into the pricing of development and designing let’s look at the best facial recognition apps that are known for their quality of service and friendly user interface for you to look at if you are searching for inspo:
- Face 2 Gene
- Face Phi
- LogMe Facial Recognition
- App Lock
How Much Does It Cost?
If you are looking to develop a simple facial recognition app that only has the most basic and minimal features required for an app to work, then it may not cost you as much as other face recognition apps do. For example, if you develop an application that works on the basis of counting the number of faces in an image, then you only have to dish around 60,000 USD. Such simple applications also take only a weeks to design, develop, build, and launch. However, when you move towards complexity and increase the number of features that your face recognition app has, the cost also increases by tens and even hundreds of thousands.
So, the cost of developing a scalable and robust facial recognition application depends entirely on the complexity and the requirements of the project. Plus, if you’re going for a completely bespoke application be prepared to make a hole in your pocket.
A good face recognition application goes through several developmental stages, including business objectives analysis, data analysis, identification of the scope of work, risk identification, building proof of concept, appropriate technologies, tools selection, definition of high-level architecture, definition of the expected results, resources required, and cost estimation.
So, keeping all of these stages in mind the cost of the project can go way above 600,000 USD based on the size of the project.
To Wrap it up
There are going to be challenges regarding your app’s development and design when it comes to planning the development of a facial recognition app. You might also face some difficulties thinking of an out-of-the-box solution to develop an app that no one else has developed before. And in such a scenario it can be really beneficial for you (without a doubt) to have an experienced team of developers and designers to help you with coming up with a design and the whole development process that follows after. We can help you with that because we know that for the construction of a robust facial recognition app, you need the right balance of effort, time, energy, and technical skills to ensure your project is scalable as well as worthy of securing financial investments.
