Optical character recognition (OCR) is a technology that accurately recognizes printed and written text characters by a computer. A typical OCR system consist of several components which may include optical scanning, location segmentation, preprocessing, feature extraction and recognition post processing. This involves photo scanning of the text, analysis of the scanned-in image and the conversion of character image to character codes. OCR software is also used to extract data from scanned documents or camera images that enables the user to access and edit the content of the original document. OCR is unique as it does not require control of the process that produces the information, however other techniques are also prevalent for automatic identification that include speech recognition, radio frequency identification and bar code reader,. The entire document management process has been revolutionized as the industry verticals adopted OCR technology in their business processes.

Major industries where OCR technology is widely used includes banking, legal, healthcare, education, finance and government. The advancement of OCR from a special purpose reader to multi-purpose interactive system has lowered the data capturing cost and has led to the development of more reliable OCR system. Therefore, OCR technology may become very useful solution for businesses that require lot of paper documentation or have huge historical data that needs to be digitized. There are many domain specific applications of OCR system which include invoice OCR, check OCR, and receipt OCR etc. These can be used for automatic number plate recognition, data entry for business documents, extracting key information and as an assistive technology for visually impaired and blind users. Optical character recognition is generally an offline process to analyze a static document. Nevertheless, cloud based OCR software is also gaining momentum globally. In recent years, web-based OCR systems are being sold as commercial products. The global market for optical character recognition is anticipated to expand at revenue CAGR of 15.2% during the forecast period from 2020-2030. The global OCR market is expected to reach US$ 51,527.0 Mn by 2030.

OCR supports mission critical subscription business operations and excludes the need of manual data entry and outdated scanners. Moreover, OCR technology with its high speed and accuracy is driving the growth of OCR market. However, the most visible hurdle in the growth of this technology is the lack of recognition of handwritten material. Presently the standard OCR software accurately works for standardized set of documents. Nevertheless, a more advance OCR technology might include intelligent character recognition (ICR) that works on learning model of human brains which can eventually solve the problem of recognition of complex handwritten documents. This is expected to create opportunities for the growth of OCR market during the forecast period.
