Global access control solutions market overview

The global access control solutions market will grow steadily over the forecast period and will exhibit an impressive CAGR of over 13% by 2020. The rising need for a high level of data and identity security in corporate firms will lead to the growth of access control solutions market size. In recent times, the need for access control solutions like biometrics and smart cards has increased owing to the recent rise in the number of terrorist attacks and criminal activities. Since most corporate employees use their mobile devices to access company data, the demand for access control solutions will increase significantly as these devices are highly vulnerable to attacks.

Technavio’s market research analyst has estimated eminent factors, such as the introduction of contactless access control solutions, to drive the prospects for market growth during the estimated period. Contactless access control is primarily used in the utility sector like oil and gas, water treatment plants, and construction sites. Hand geometry coupled with smart devices like tablets, laptops, and notebooks allows the contactless approach, as an image of the palm can be captured with the camera of a mobile device and can then be used to secure these devices and applications from hackers and viruses while providing access to authenticated users.
