Biometric technology is defined as the technologies used for identifying and authenticating unique physical characteristics of individuals. This technology is primarily used to authenticate the identity of an individual by verifying certain physical or behavioral metrics such as facial structure, fingerprints, voice tone, palm or finger vein patterns, and iris movements.

Further, biometric technology is referred to as the computerized or automatic technique that plays important role in recognizing and security. This technology offers advanced recognition or authentication methods to replace traditional methods such as passwords, pin codes, and others. Recently, the use of biometrics is getting a favorable response in varied industries such as banks and financial institutions, medical centers, airports, and others. The main reason behind such wide adoption is the provision of sustainable and high-security benefits to individuals or any organization by protecting sensitive data from third-party fraudulent activity.

Key Market Highlights

  • The global biometric technology market size is anticipated to surpass USD 137.9 billion by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 18.9% during the forecast period (2022-2030).
  • Globally, biometric technology is divided based on the component: hardware, software, and service
  • In the context of deployment, the market is categorized into contact, contactless, and hybrid.
  • The market is also separated as per type: physiological biometric (iris recognition, face recognition, hand geometry, fingerprint recognition, and others) and behavioral biometric (voice recognition, signature recognition, and others).
  • Based on authentication type, the market share is segmented into three groups: single-factor authentication, and multi-factor authentication.
  • Further, the end-use segment comprises seven aspects: transportation & logistics, government, BFSI, defense & security, healthcare, IT and telecommunication, and others.
  • The market is geographically categorized into five regions: Europe, the Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, and the Middle East and Africa.
  • North America and Asia Pacific are expected to support industry growth during the forecast period due to the high adoption of security and surveillance solutions.

Biometric Technology Market Segmentation Details:

Based on component, the hardware segment contributed major shares to the market growth in terms of volume. Biometric hardware is mainly adopted due to its easy installation and complete access to each security aspect. This component mainly collects the user’s physical or behavioral traits such as fingerprints and palm prints, iris scans, facial features, and others. Further, such hardware is connected to the business’s data servers which authenticate the entered credentials to further allow information access.

Based on the deployment, the contact-based deployment segment contributed major shares to the biometric technology market growth. Contact-based biometric hardware is primarily used within building infrastructures as it helps to collect and verify finger impressions with information on data servers. This segment is widely adopted in multiple institutions such as fitness centers, athletic clubs, commercial office spaces, residential areas, and others mainly due to its user-friendly interface. 

Based on type, the physiological biometrics segment is anticipated to account for the largest contribution to the biometric technology market shares. These biometrics involve the structure of a person’s body. Several physical traits such as iris structure, fingerprint impression, or face structure are mapped for use with biometric security scanners. Moreover, these biometrics reflect the unique identity of any person which makes it a universally accepted mode of ensuring proper usage of biometrics with an individual’s consent.

Based on the authentication type, the multi-factor authentication segment is projected to support the market demand in terms of revenue. This type of authentication is mainly adopted to add extra layers of security over existing security patches. Such multi-layered authentication makes it difficult for any unethical hacker to access sensitive data. Thus, multi-factor authentication is widely adopted within the IT and Telecom, BFSI, and Defense sector to prevent any risks of data theft or data breach within a large network of servers.

Based on end use, the government segment is expected to contribute substantial shares to the market shares in terms of volume. Several biometric technologies such as Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS), Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC), and others are integrated within government institutions for specified tasks such as verification of security cards, giving web access to the individuals’ identity within government institution and undergo any background checks.

Based on region, North America is anticipated to contribute major shares to the market growth in terms of revenue and volume. Large numbers of established government institutions and multinational conglomerates heavily rely on such biometric technologies to prevent any fraudulent interventions. Further, the widespread of such technology awareness among businesses and the population also supports the demand for biometrics within the infrastructure as smart door locks, airport access control, and facial scan for accessing e-commerce applications.
