Market Highlights

The imperative need for efficient security systems to secure confidential data in enterprises has led to an increasing demand for biometrics. Biometrics offer several advantages in high-end identification management as they are precise, easy and safe to use, accountable, secure, user-friendly, convenient, and scalable. The advantages of the technology are expected to play a major role in pushing the global biometrics authentication and identification market, mentions Market Research Report (MRFR) in its recently published report.

 The growth of physical security breaches over the past few years has paved the way for the market growth of biometrics market. Biometrics find novel use in government projects such as passport and visas and also serve as a means for unique identification and authentication purposes. The growing need for enhanced security for access of confidential data in enterprises has necessitated the integration of biometrics in security systems and is a major driver of the market. The shift in trend from fixed biometric devices to mobile biometrics devices and rise in demand for portable biometrics and touch-less biometrics devices has also aided in market expansion. 

MRFR states that the global market is projected to garner considerable growth during the forecast period due to a number of key factors. Rising concerns related to global security and safety, the massive demand for security protocols, and the integration of biometrics across various industry verticals like government, banking, homeland security, financial institutions, and others are expected to be key drivers of the global market. Biometrics even hold novel use in government projects like visas and passports and serve as a key technology for unique identification and authentication purposes. Additionally, the booming demand for smartphones, increasing support from the government, increasing adoption of biometrics in the healthcare and banking sector, and the usage of biometrics in smartphone technologies are some of the other key drivers of the global market.

Deep penetration among consumers owing to growing crime rates and fraudulent activities, escalating deployment of biometrics in facial recognition and phone unlock in smartphones spurs the market for biometrics. Despite the number of advantages biometric systems offer, the growth of the market might be hindered by the high price of deployment of biometric systems, difficulties in integration into existing software. Moreover, security concerns arising out of breach of stored biometric information or biometric template acts a barrier to the adoption of biometrics system.

However, on the other hand, the growth of the global biometric authentication & identification market can be hampered by the high deployment pricing associated with biometric systems and difficulties in integrating the technology into existing software.
