Latin America Biometrics Market to Reach US$ 7,089 Million by 2027, Propelled by the Extensive Product Employment in Governmental and Private Organizations

Published on Nov 18, 2022

The latest report by IMARC, titled “Latin America Biometrics Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the Latin America biometrics market size reached US$ 2,633 Million in 2021. Biometrics are used to recognize, authenticate, and identify individuals based on their behavioral or physical characteristics. They are secure, fast, accurate, and reliable as compared to traditional security systems. Biometrics identifiers can be categorized into two categories, including physiological and behavioral characteristics. Physiological characteristics include palm veins, fingerprints, palm prints, face, DNA, iris retina, and hand geometry. On the other hand, behavioral characteristics include voice, typing patterns, and signature recognition.

Latin America Biometrics Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the extensive employment of biometrics in governmental and private organizations, and institutional setups for door access, marking attendance, and employee identification. Additionally, biometrics are easy to use and implement, and provide an economical solution for ensuring assurance and high-end security, thereby creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, they are also installed in high-security areas to secure the facility and minimize the risk of intrusion by identifying unknown individuals through automated biometrics recognition, which is positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, various companies are entering into partnerships to expand their consumer base globally. In line with this, the launch of multimodal biometrics that utilizes multiple behavioral or physiological characteristics for authentication is enhancing recognition and security performance. Furthermore, the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has led to the rising adoption of contactless biometrics systems that analyze gait, voice and face recognition for identity authentication. Apart from this, the utilization of biometrics has significantly increased in hotels, restaurants, and cafes for enabling users to register without an ID, consequently boosting product demand. Other growth-inducing factors include the growing demand for secure, accurate, and remote access to medical records and treatment plans and the rising security concerns due to the increasing prevalence of cybercrimes in Latin America. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 7,089 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 17.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
