Top Players in the Biometrics Market

Top Players in the Biometrics Market

The global biometrics market size reached a value of US$ 33.2 Billion in 2022. As per the analysis by the IMARC Group, the biometric systems are evolving rapidly due to increasing security breaches and transaction frauds across the globe. This has prompted manufacturers to transition from single-sample verification matchers, such as face, fingerprint, iris, and voice, to a wide range of multi-modal, fully automated recognition systems. One such trend is the use of vein and gait authentication, which takes into consideration the person’s way of speaking and the unique pattern formed by their blood vessels. Additionally, the large-scale integration of biometrics with mobile devices has also facilitated the emergence of mobile banking and payments that are now considered safer and faster due to its portability and on-cloud data storage capabilities. This, in turn, has prompted companies to deploy multi-factor authentication (MFA) systems and apply the blockchain based approach that distributes biometric data and facilitates the process of recording transactions, thereby supporting digital payments. Other than this, companies are adopting the biometric single sign on (SSO), which is an authentication scheme that allows a user to log in with a single ID and password to any of several related, yet independent, software systems. This, in turn, enables them to secure their networks from data breaches and maximize password management costs. Besides this, manufacturers are engineering industry-specialized biometric solutions to meet the unique security demand of respective industries, which is providing lucrative growth opportunities to the market players. Furthermore, leading companies are considerably investing in research and development (R&D) activities to advance technologies, such as third-dimensional (3D) image, sensor, feature extraction, pattern matching, and distinct area detection (DAD) algorithms, that are more user-friendly and compatible with existing infrastructures. This, in turn, is catalyzing the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 87.4 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 17.36% during 2023-2028.
