Report Description

Biometrics Market
Biometrics Market


The Biometrics Market is expected to grow at a strong CAGR of around 16% owing to the increasing need for convenient and fast modes of authentication and the rising need for easy-to-operate or user-friendly security systems. Biometrics are biological measurements or physical characteristics that can be used to identify an individual. For example, fingerprint mapping, facial recognition, and retinal scanning are all biometric technologies. Researchers claim that ear shapes, sitting and walking patterns, distinctive body odors, hand veins, and facial contortions are also unique identifiers, these characteristics further define biometrics. The growing adoption of biometrics in consumer electronics, banking and financial services, and the automobile industry is also contributing to the growth of the market. Furthermore, significant advances in biometric solutions designed for authentication and identification applications further influence the biometrics market. For instance, in November 2020, SIMPLEX QUANTUM, Inc. announced that it has completed registration in the United States of a patent for a system designed to accurately authenticate an individual’s electrocardiogram (ECG) waveform data.

Some of the major players operating in the market include Fujitsu, NEC Corporation, Thales, Assa Abloy, Cognitec Systems GmbH, Suprema Inc., IrisGuard Ltd., M2SYS Technology, Leidos Holdings Inc., and Precise Biometrics Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst component, the hardware segment held a prominent share of the market in 2020”

Based on component, the market is segmented into hardware and software. The hardware segment catered to a significant share of the market in 2020. This is because biometrics hardware balances convenience, security, and user experience. Biometric devices are most commonly used in security, banking, mobile access and authentication, law enforcement, public transportation, schools, home help, and building access. Biometric hardware uses automated methods to confirm or recognize the identity of a living person based on their physiological or behavioral characteristics.

“Amongst authentication type, multi-factor segment held a significant share of the market in 2020”

By authentication type, the market is bifurcated into single-factor and multi-factor. Among these, the multi-factor authentication type accounted for a prominent share of the global biometrics market in 2020. This is because multi-factor authentication is widely adopted throughout industries due to the high level of security provided by multi-factor authentication. It is a key component of biometrics for better security. While it can be useful for hackers to identify a single authorization factor, multiple layers of real-time access verification and monitoring are important for adhering to the biometrics.

“Asia-Pacific to grow at a strong CAGR during the forecast period”

Asia-Pacific biometrics market is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. The presence of prominent biometric system manufacturers in the region such as Fujitsu and NEC Corporation is expected to contribute to the growth of the region owing to the rapid economic growth in major countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea. The growth of the biometrics market in the region is also due to technological advances and growing public awareness of the use of biometrics systems for security purposes.
