Biometrics Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

The increasing need for surveillance and security is notably driving the biometrics market growth, although factors such as high installation and maintenance costs for biometrics may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the biometrics industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Biometrics Market Driver

The increasing need for surveillance and security is one of the key drivers supporting the biometrics market growth. With the advances in technology, cybercriminals and hackers are targeting retail POS transactions. The rise in the number of credit card payments at retail stores has increased the instances of fraud, which has compelled the credit card companies and the BFSI sector to adopt biometrics to secure confidential details of users. Theft of such critical data could endanger national security. Likewise, the transportation sector deals with border safety, which requires a high level of security to avoid unauthorized intrusions. In the healthcare sector, which deals with bio-chemicals and lab research, data also needs to be protected against theft and cyber-attacks. Stronger security measures such as fingerprint recognition, face recognition, and iris recognition are, therefore, being installed in the above-mentioned sectors. Such activities will drive market growth during the forecast period.

Key Biometrics Market Trend

The increasing role of multimodal biometrics solutions is another factor supporting the biometrics market growth. Multimodal biometric solutions will soon become one of the key areas of importance for both buyers and vendors in the global biometrics market, as a single biometric solution is not adequate to ensure authentication in all kinds of environments. For instance, in a completely dark environment, facial recognition systems may not work. In areas with cold climatic conditions, users may find it difficult to use fingerprint access while wearing gloves. Also, it is challenging to use voice authentication in loud environments. Therefore, multimodal biometrics solutions will contribute significantly to the global biometrics market during the forecast period, fueled by factors such as the necessity for additional security layers and improved accessibility.

Key Biometrics Market Challenge

The high installation and maintenance costs for biometrics are some of the factors hindering the biometrics market growth. Cost is an important factor to take into account while choosing a biometric recognition system such as multi-factor authentication or multimodal biometric systems. Installing biometric systems can be complicated and costly and returns on investment are usually difficult to quantify. Implementing facial recognition, iris recognition, and retina scan systems in locations that require very high security, such as nuclear plants or classified sites, is very costly. For instance, the price of a fingerprint scanner can range from $50-2,500 based on application. High installation and maintenance costs will pose challenges for small-scale end-users as they may not be able to afford biometrics systems. These factors can restrict the market growth of biometrics during the forecast period.

This biometrics market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.
