Biometrics refers to the process of using behavioral and physical characteristics of a person as a means of authentic identity for them. These characteristics are unique to a person, and the biometric system has continuously established itself in the field of security and surveillance. The behavioral characteristics include the person’s voice, keystroke & signature, and the physical characteristics are the fingerprint, face, hand, iris, and DNA.

Several government initiatives are being launched to utilize this technology for different national-level policies and identification applications. India’s AADHAR project is a perfect example of this system and by far, the largest biometric identification system in the world. Various financial institutions such as the banks are in the process or are planning to convert their customer base identification through biometrics, which in turn, will create a huge demand for the biometric market. From the past few years, the fingerprint identification technology is covering a large portion of the market as all other technologies are slowly and steadily penetrating the market. Additionally, the decreasing price of biometrics technology is further paving the way for the biometric market growth.

According to the biometric market research report, with the emergence of the COVID-19 crisis, the biometrics systems are getting into the spotlight for early detection, patient screening, and public safety monitoring to minimize the spread of the coronavirus. Moreover, the accelerating application of biometrics in face recognition and surveillance operations systems to detect individuals who are not wearing protective masks is another factor that is drastically surging the demand of the market.

On the basis of the authentication type, the biometrics fingerprint recognition segment is anticipated to witness a higher CAGR over the forecast period. This is attributed to the exceptional advantages offered by this fingerprint recognition technology, followed by its simple to install and lower cost factors. In addition to this, the strong demand for this technology in the travel and immigration applications for e-passports with biometric passport data, e-visas, and driving license, is further surging the demand of the market over the coming years. The accelerating usage of the fingerprint authentication in numerous sectors such as healthcare, banking & finance, and other sectors, will have a positive impact on the growing demand of the segment in the market.

Based on the Offering, the software segment is predicted to dominate the biometric market over the forecast period owing to the increasing adoption of cloud-based services and AI for biometric devices to ensure compatibility of devices and operating systems. The software services in the biometric systems improve the functionality of the hardware by storing and recalling spatial data. The biometric system used in specific applications such as criminal identification at the border crossing points are equipped with software which helps in imparting interoperability and compatibility to biometrics devices/systems with computers and networks.

On the basis of the region, the North America region is likely to experience a faster CAGR during the forecast period. The US and Canada have a strong economy, which empowers them to invest in various public safety activities increasingly. The accelerating adoption of smart technologies and the growing digitalization have further surged the biometric market growth in this region. The rising number of government initiatives in North American countries—such as the US, Canada, and Mexico – for large-scale funded programs including e-passports and e-visas are attracting a large number of end-users to opt for biometric systems. The US Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security have been implementing fingerprint biometrics to facilitate physical and digital access and combat security issues. In addition to this, the large presence of key players, including Aware (US) and Cross Match Technologies (US), is further boosting the growth of the biometric system market in this region.
