Biometrics market forecast

Technavio’s market study identifies the rising acceptance of biometrics systems among students to be one of the primary growth factors for the biometrics market size in the education sector. Biometrics system primarily records the physical or behavioral characteristics and then converts it into computer codes to be stored in a database for future verification. Biometrics in education institutes prevents unauthorized use of data, unauthorized access to the premises, and error in attendance monitoring. This enables the efficient tracking of students, which will consequently increase their acceptance among educational institutions. According to the biometrics market research, our analysts estimate that this market will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 26% during the forecast period.

Biometric smart cards contain biometrics data of an individual for the verification and authentication of the owner of the card. Smart cards are made of plastic and contain integrated circuits with useful and relevant data. Students and employees are utilizing smart cards to gain access to office and institute premises by punching the card into a biometric reader that authorizes and authenticates the person. Smart Attendance Terminal (SAT) is an innovative handheld biometric smart card that identifies and authenticates a student’s identity and marks the live attendance of students through fingerprints. This will increase the integration of biometrics in smart cards, which will be one of the key trends contributing to the growth of the biometrics technology market.
