Healthcare Biometrics Market Size to Surpass Around USD 79 Bn by 2030

According to Precedence Research, the global healthcare biometrics market size is expected to surpass around USD 79 billion by 2030 and expanding growth at a CAGR of 18.1% from 2022 to 2030.


Ottawa, July 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global healthcare biometrics market size was estimated at 29.44 billion in 2022. The North American market records the highest growth due to the increasing number of fraud cases and crimes in the health care system. With the increase in the occurrence of fraud the need for high security surveillance systems arises and hence the adoption of healthcare biometrics comes into play. With the introduction of modern health care facilities such as hospitals and clinics, modernization of the system is also essential. Further, the European nations from the second largest market for the healthcare biometrics as a result of the active government support to the system in order to provide excellent facilities to the patients.

Market dynamics


The active support which is provided by the government to the health care system has encouraged the use of modern technologies in order to provide an excellent service to the population and in turn obtain a better revenue return from the market. After the occurrence of the pandemic the number of fraud cases seen in the healthcare system has increased immensely which needs to be controlled with the help of modern technology. The problem of fraud patient identity was on a rise due to the huge number of patients that turned to the hospital as a result of mass infection, hence the need for sorting out the required individual out of the crowd became extremely important. The use of healthcare biometrics helps to perform the needful by restricting the patient that a leak and other fraud cases. Theft of medical identity has also increased to a great extent which proves to be a driving factor for the growth of the market during the forecast period. These multiple reasons prove to be the driving forces for the growth of the market during the forecast period.


The cost of the healthcare biometric system is considerably high which imposes an additional investment on the management of the hospitals and clinics. As a result of this, a higher cost of treatment is imposed on the patients which makes the entire healthcare system very costly. This proves to be a restraining factor for the growth of the market. Multiple issues are faced while using a biometric scanner which are difficult to rectify by the human operator. Errors while presenting the individual information to the system leads to an error in the final result, and creating a discomfort for the user. A physical disability of the user proves to be of barrier for the artificial intelligence of the health care biometric system which creates difficulties for the consumer. Since these systems make use of electrical energy, constant power outages in the developing nations prove to be a restraining factor for the market. These multiple reasons prove to be the restraining factors for the growth of the market.


The adoption of a contactless biometric system proves to be a great opportunity for the growth of the market. Technologies such as face recognition and retina scan are adopted by the big companies and hospitals in order to modernize their system and provide the best possible security to patient data and hospital information. The developing countries are readily accepting the use of the biometric system in order to match with the advanced facilities provided by the developed nations. This proves to be an opportunity for the healthcare biometric system for expanding its limits globally. These multiple reasons proved to be great opportunities for the market growth.


The biometric data and information that has been recorded into the system needs to be protected too in order to have a secured security system. Frauds in the field of information technology lead to the hacking of digital information from the system which proves to be a threat to the biometric medical identification data. Loss of such important information will prove to be a great threat to the society. Supply of constant electric power to the biometric system becomes a challenging factor for the developing economies as the problems of constant power outages are still faced by them. These factors prove to be the challenges posed in front of the market.
