Covid-19 scenario

  • Most biometric devices such as fingerprint scanners, vein recognition and others involve touching surfaces and as a result there has been a sharp drop in demand for these maneuvers from several verticals, especially during the initial phase.

  • Additionally, the majority of government agencies have suspended the use of biometric attendance for all its employees, as a precautionary measure to control the spread of the coronavirus.

  • However, other biometric devices such as iris scanner, facial recognition and others have seen higher demand as they do not involve any touch points and provide decent authentication results.

The hardware segment took the lion’s share

Based on components, the hardware segment held the major share in 2020, generating almost two-thirds of half of the global biometric technology market. This is because these hardware scans are checked against the registered database to approve or deny access to the respective system. The software segment, however, is expected to quote the fastest CAGR of 15.4% during the forecast period. This is because it allows different application software on different operating systems to be compatible.

The physiological biometrics segment held the highest share in 2020

Based on type, the physiological biometrics segment held the highest share in 2020, generating around three-quarters of the global biometrics technology industry. The fact that it is considered highly reliable, as the characteristics of people are unique and cannot be compromised by the influence of the psycho-emotional phase, drives the growth of the segment. The behavioral biometrics segment, on the other hand, would cite the fastest CAGR of 16.8% from 2021 to 2030. This is because it is based on the unique and measurable patterns of human activities such as voice, keystroke, communication, handwriting, middleware, signature, and scent for identification or authentication.

North America held the largest share

Based on region, the market across North America accounted for the major share in 2020, contributing more than two-thirds of the global market biometric technology industry. This is attributed to the growing use of web applications and the internet has increased the demand for security and verification due to the increased threat of cyber attacks and data theft. Asia Pacific, simultaneously, is expected to quote the fastest CAGR of 17.3% throughout the forecast period. Growing usage of internet, online payments, immigration and initiatives like “Digital India” and “Adhar” by Indian government are likely to expand the growth of biometrics market at the fastest pace of the region.
