Impact of COVID-19 on Access Control and Authentication Market

In 2020, the world is facing a very difficult and unpredicted situation, as the coronavirus continues to spread. The COVID-19 has started showing its distressing collision on most of the profitable businesses across the globe. The outbreak is posing serious challenges to various industries and the world economy. The biometric access control devices are now playing a significant role in the safety and security of the people. The novel coronavirus is pouring the need for contactless biometric access control devices as the consumers don’t want to interact with shared contact-based authentication devices. The positive impact will be perceptible which in turn encourage the growth of the access control and authentication market over the forecast period.

In May 2020, Melbourne-area Avalon Airport, Australia, has expanded its partnership with Elenium Automation, an airport check-in automation technology company, to deploy the company’s full suite of biometrics and other technology for contactless self-service throughout the airport to combat with COVID-19 outbreak. Similarly, Heathrow Airport, U.K., announced the trial of facial recognition technology and thermal screening to identify folks with COVID-19. These developments between public sector and biometric access control system providers work towards the relaunch and upgradation of existing system with contactless authentication devices to combat the safety concerns during COVID-19 pandemic, thereby ultimately encouraging the growth of the access control and authentication market in the coming years.

Moreover, several players in the access control industry are more focusing on the development of biometric and temperature-detection technologies to support global disease-containment efforts. For instance, in May 2020, NEC Corporation, a leading provider of innovative IT, network, communications, AI, and biometric products and solutions, launched NeoFace Thermal Express that employs fever detection and biometric facial recognition technology to provide contactless screening for access control based on authentication and safety rules. This indicates the positive signs for the demand of contactless access control devices in the coming years. In addition, the favourable government policies & initiatives including financial packages for the businesses and ease in the tax, and increasing demand for biometric devices in the healthcare sector coupled with increasing investment in healthcare industry are further expected to contribute to the growth of the access control and authentication market over the coming years.

The global access control and authentication market study presents historical market data (2018 & 2019), estimated current data (2020), and forecasts for 2027. The market is segmented on the basis of technology (biometrics, smart card, electronic locks & doors), component (hardware, software, and services), application (residential, commercial, government & public sector, IT & telecom, BFSI, retail, military & defense, healthcare, manufacturing, hospitality, education). The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyses the market at a country level.

Based on technology, the biometrics technology segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the overall access control and authentication market in 2020. The large share of this segment is primarily accounted for the increasing adoption of biometric recognition technology across several applications; growing incorporation of various recognition technologies including facial, voice, IRIS, fingerprint, and palm & vein in security systems; and increasing usage of biometric access control devices across several applications such as border control, airport, payment, hospitals, commercial, and residential spaces.

Based on component, the hardware segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the overall access control and authentication market in 2020. The large share of this segment is mainly due to the factors such as increasing adoption of access control hardware, advancements in promising technologies and their integration with access control devices, and increasing demand for high-level security. However, the services segment is anticipated to grow with the fastest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the consistently increasing need for convenient and secure access control services, increasing adoption of high-level security devices, and growing need to prevent system failures.
