Eye Tracking Market Size

Eye Tracking Market size was valued at USD 850 million in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 30.5% between 2024 and 2032. The growing research interest in eye tracking in natural environments reflects a broader shift towards studying human behavior and cognition in ecologically valid settings. By combining the precision of eye tracking technology with the complexity of real-world scenarios, researchers can gain deeper insights into visual attention, perception, and decision-making processes, ultimately advancing the understanding of human behavior in everyday life.


Eye Tracking Market

For instance, in January 2024, Tobii launched UX Explore cloud platform, making eye-tracking-based mobile UX research more scalable. The latest product from Tobii, UX Explore, empowers user experience (UX) researchers to harness the power of eye tracking and measure user attention using only a smartphone. The new software-based platform uses deep learning eye tracking algorithms and allows studies to be conducted remotely, accessing users in their natural environment.


With the increasing use of smartphones and tablets, there is a growing demand for mobile eye tracking market. Mobile eye tracking technology allows researchers to study user behavior and interactions in real-world environments, providing insights into mobile app usability, advertising effectiveness, and consumer behavior on mobile devices. For instance, November 2021, Entropik Technologies Pvt. Ltd. announced the launch of the first multi-platform eye tracking technology that works on both web and mobile devices. Real-time analytics dashboards and visualization tools empower stakeholders to identify usability issues, make data-driven decisions, and optimize digital experiences on-the-fly.

Integrating eye tracking technology into existing products, applications, or research methodologies is a complex and time-consuming task owing to the various intricate components and calibration requirements. Developers and researchers frequently face challenges related to compatibility, integration, and data analysis, requiring specialized expertise and resources.

Eye Tracking Market Trends

The inclusion of a new dynamic vision assessment module reflects a rising trend towards more comprehensive and personalized vision assessments. Traditional vision assessments often focus solely on static measures such as visual acuity, but the industry has witnessed an increasing recognition of the importance of assessing dynamic visual skills such as eye movement coordination, tracking, and convergence/divergence abilities. For instance, in January 2021, RightEye LLC announced the launch of its Version 4.0 update to the RightEye Vision System. This update offers three improvements including a new dynamic vision assessment module, an expanded and updated reference population dataset, and a modern dashboard and user interface.

Eye tracking technology is finding applications in healthcare for diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation purposes. Eye trackers are used to assess visual impairments, neurological disorders, autism spectrum disorders, and traumatic brain injuries, providing valuable insights into patient behavior, attention, and cognitive function.

For instance, in January 2020, EyeTech Digital Systems, Inc. announced the launch of EyeOn, an all-in-one, ultra-slim eye gaze tablet during the Assistive Technology Industry Association conference in Orlando. The EyeOn eye tracking platform enables people with mobility and motor impairments to select, type, and speak entirely hands-free, using eye movement to control the device that measures just ¾” thick and weighs under 4.5 pounds.
