According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "India Biometrics Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025," the India biometrics market size grew at a substantial rate during 2012-2019. Biometrics refers to the process of using biological measurements or physical characteristics of an individual as a means of identification. Biometric identifiers are broadly categorized into physiological and behavioral characteristics. While fingerprints, face and palm prints are included among physiological characteristics, behavioral characteristics include voice and signature recognition. Since biological characteristics are unique for every individual, they are considered to be one of the most effective and efficient methods of identification. Biometrics are widely used across the corporate, industrial and government facilities to ensure fast and reliable access to systems or devices. Fingerprint mapping, iris recognition and facial recognition are some of the most widely used forms of biometric technology for data veracity and access control.
India Biometrics Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the growing adoption of biometric security systems across the corporate sector in India. These systems are extremely convenient to be used by employees as they eliminate the need for carrying identification cards. In line with this, the Government of India has also adopted the technology for the e-passport and e-visa programs. Various other programs are also incorporating fingerprint scanning and iris recognition for identity verification. For instance, UIDAI (Aadhar) captures the biometric details of the Indian residents for authentication purposes. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of biometric identification in smartphones, tablets and laptops has also provided a thrust to the market growth. Moreover, the inflating disposable incomes and growing population in the country is contributing to the increase in the uptake of smartphones and other devices, thereby facilitating the market growth. The advent of multimodal biometrics in the market is expected to further create a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to witness strong growth during 2020-2025.
