The application of opinion mining and sentiment analysis (OMSA) in the era of big data have been used a useful way in categorizing the opinion into different sentiment and in general evaluating the mood of the public. Moreover, different techniques of OMSA have been developed over the years in different data sets and applied to various experimental settings. In this regard, this paper presents a comprehensive systematic literature review, aims to discuss both technical aspect of OMSA (techniques and types) and non-technical aspect in the form of application areas are discussed. Furthermore, this paper also highlighted both technical aspects of OMSA in the form of challenges in the development of its technique and non-technical challenges mainly based on its application.
