Post-pandemic, this led to the speedy replacement of touch-based technologies such as the use of fingerprints on elevator buttons, smartphones, and door handles, and together with the emergence of biometric identification through contactless sensors enabling facial recognition, ear recognition, iris recognition, hand vein capturing, gait recognition, and voice recognition. All these advancements are massively responsible for the uptrend in the utilization of a variety of non-contact biometric technology, which is anticipated to propel market growth in the forecast period. For instance, ~64% of airports are aiming to roll out self-boarding gates using biometrics and ID documentation by 2023.

Global Contactless Biometrics Technology Market: Key Takeaways

  • Market in North America to propel the highest growth
  • Government segment to garner the highest growth
  • Market in Asia Pacific to grow at the highest rate

Growing Adoption of Advanced Technologies to Boost Market Growth

With the growing role of smart technologies such as QR scanning, near-field communication involving 5G and IoT, biometric facial recognition, and thermal scanning technologies, as well as increased investment in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and big data, the biometric algorithm is expected to evolve contactless solutions for facilitating authentication, access control, payment, and fraud prevention in man The global total corporate investment in artificial intelligence (AI) in 2021 accounted for around USD 94 billion showing a sharp rise from 2020. According to one report, from the pandemic to July 2020, there was a 136% increase in contactless transactions in the United States, promoting digital services and digital transactions. Moreover, face-recognition technologies combined with real-time emotion detection technology and upcoming health monitoring and caretaking robots are gaining popularity in the healthcare sector, enabling improved security and patient identification, better patient monitoring and diagnosis, as well as an improved patient experience, besides a reduction in the workload of healthcare workers.

Global Contactless Biometrics Technology Market: Regional Overview

The global contactless biometrics technology market is further divided into given major regions. This includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region. 

Rising Security Threats to Drive the Growth in the North America Region

The contactless biometrics technology market in the North American region is estimated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2035. The rising security concern as well as increasing government spending on homeland security and emergency management to curb terrorism and other cross-border illegal activities in the region is leading to the increasing adoption of various identification and authentication methods as well as surveillance solutions. Military spending in the United States increased in 2020, accounting for over USD 750 billion, a rise of ~USD 20 billion from 2019 and more than USD 50 billion from 2018. Moreover, the growing use of facial and iris recognition at airport security, besides the increasing use of contactless biometric cards for banking and financial services, is also expected to contribute to the growth of the market in the region.

Rising Concerns about Illegal Immigration to Drive Growth in Asia Pacific Region

The contactless biometrics technology market in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to garner the highest CAGR by the end of 2035. The market growth in the region in the forecast period can be attributed to the growing concern over illegal immigrants with rising intraregional migrations as well as the increasing number of terrorist activities in the region. As per a 2020 report, Asia was home to over 4.5 billion people and was also the origin of more than 40% of the world’s international migrants, which accounted for ~115 million. Besides this, the subsequent commercialization of the biometrics industry resulting from government initiatives such as India’s Aadhaar or China's CRIC (Resident Identity Card) as well as the rising threat of the communal spread of the future wave of COVID-19 in the Asia Pacific region are expected to boost the robust market growth of contactless biometrics technology market in the region.
