Market outlook of emerging technologies in the biometrics space

The global emerging biometric technologies market was valued at around US$550 million in 2014. Currently, the adoption of emerging biometric technologies is limited to the developed regions of North America, Europe, and APAC. However, as the technology advances and numerous vendors enter the market, it is expected to be adopted in developing regions as well.

The market is witnessing high adoption of emerging technologies in the sports and gaming sectors. Vendors are researching newer methods to implement these emerging technologies into their systems and the scenario is likely to boost the market significantly over the next four years.

How are multimodal biometrics shaping the market?

There are a number of ways in which multimodal biometrics are finding utility in the market-

Accuracy and reliable recognition:

Multimodal biometric system provides a high level of accuracy to the end-users for verification as well as identification modes. For instance, if two individuals walk in a similar manner, chances of error in the identification of an individual is high. In such cases, multimodal biometric system is used that increases the reliability and accuracy of biometric technologies.

A fortified level of security:

Multimodal biometric system provides multiple levels of security For instance, a highly secured premise can use up to three biometric technologies. In case of failure of any one of the biometric technologies, the end-user can still be identified and verified to gain access into secure premises.


In the biometrics system, there is a threat of the system being spoofed. However, with the usage of multimodal biometric system, the vulnerability of biometric system has reduced to a great extent.

User acceptance:

Since multimodal biometric system provides a high level of security, they are being widely accepted and deployed in many countries.

Market segmentation of emerging biometrics technologies and further analysis

  • DNA analysis
  • Keystroke analysis
  • GAIT analysis
  • EEG/ECG analysis

The global DNA analysis biometrics market is expected to reach around US$570 million by 2019 thanks to its high adoption in the government sector.

It is used in forensic labs for sample identifications. DNA analysis is a highly sophisticated and complicated biometric solutions, and it is carried out only in critical conditions.

Market segmentation of emerging biometrics by end-users

  • Government
  • Healthcare
  • Others

Healthcare sector is at its nascent stage of adopting the latest biometric solutions. It is mainly implemented to improve the security of crucial information regarding a patient and doctor's information. Biometrics in healthcare is used mostly for improving hospital management.
