Global Biometrics Market to Reach US$ 87.4 Billion by 2028, Impelled by Rising Security Applications

March 03, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Biometrics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," finds that the global biometrics market size reached US$ 33.2 Billion in 2022. Biometrics refers to biological measurements of physical and behavioral characteristics of individuals that are utilized for authentication. Some commonly used biometric identifiers include fingerprint, face, palm veins and prints, iris, DNA, retina, voice, signature, and typing patterns. These unique traits are recorded and detected by electronic devices to recognize, identify and authenticate individuals for secure entry and access to systems and data. They offer more efficient, safer, and faster identification than traditionally used alpha-numeric passwords, thus minimizing the risks of unwanted intrusion or data theft. As a result, biometric systems are widely installed across workplaces, government offices, educational institutes, hospitals, banks, and other high-security areas.

Global Biometrics Market Trends:

The rising security applications of biometric systems due to their high accuracy, cost-effectiveness, and easy usage represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Besides this, the growing need for advanced security solutions to ensure privacy and reduce security threats has augmented the product demand. Additionally, there has been widespread adoption of biometric systems in the corporate sector for door access, employee identification, and attendance. Along with this, the rising usage of biometric systems by banking organizations to secure mobile payments and online transactions against fraudulent activities has catalyzed the market growth. Furthermore, various product innovations, such as the launch of multimodal or hybrid biometric systems that employ two or more biometric indicators for enhanced recognition and accuracy, have also accelerated the product adoption rate. Other factors, including the introduction of e-passports, integration of biometrics in consumer electronics, increasing terrorist and criminal activities, growing security concerns, and technological advancements, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, the market value is expected to reach US$ 87.4 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 17.36% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
