Segmentation of Market covered in the research:
Based on type, the market has been classified as face recognition, fingerprint identification, DNA analysis, iris recognition, and voice recognition. The fingerprint identification system is expected to dominate the global biometrics in government market owing to its use in closing cold case files. It also finds use in financial transactions as payment merchants aim to decrease the number of fraud and theft. In 2018, Mastercard introduced biometric cards that stores fingerprints of the user for authentication purposes. It can gain further adoption as cashless economies and digital technology becomes commercial. On the other hand, face recognition can gain precedence in the coming years as it finds application at airports and border checkpoints. Government agencies such as the United States Special Operation Command (SOCOM) are planning to use facial recognition technology in portable and handheld forms. The segment is deemed to reach a valuation of USD 7.7 billion by the end of the forecast period.

By application, the market is segmented into healthcare and welfare, public safety, latent fingerprint matching, voter registration, border control, national id, and e-visas. The healthcare and welfare is bound to be the biggest revenue generator for governments as the COVID-19 virus affects citizens globally. SuperCom is an Israeli company that has collaborated with the local government for tracking and monitoring the quarantine process of patients entering the country’s borders. It is used to curb the spread of the virus and ensure cases remain at an all-time low. On the other hand, the national id segment is likely to take off owing to rising immigration numbers and need for preventive measures for stopping criminals from entering borders. The use of multi-modal biometric authentication for enhancing security as well as identifying faces with ease can drive the segment growth.
