This industry research report identifies Gemalto, NEC, Safran, and Vision-Box as the leading vendors in the global airport e-gates market. This research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by the key regions such as the Americas, APAC, and EMEA.

Overview of the global airport e-gates market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global airport e-gates market will grow impressively during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of almost 20% by 2020. The implementation of e-gates at airports reduces the delay at process points subsequently reducing the average passenger processing time from several minutes to just 10 to 12 seconds. This is considered to be one of the primary factors that will contribute to the growth of this market. The check-in times normally vary based on flight services, which induces authorities to recommend passengers to arrive at the airport hours prior to the departure of the flight for manual passenger processing. Whereas, the self-service check-in machines and the baggage drop-off points at e-gates are open from at least 3 hours before the scheduled departure of the flight. Passengers can walk-in anytime before the scheduled departure and check-in, by placing their passport’s photo page on the scanner, stepping into the gate, completing the eye scan, and stepping out through the gate. The implementation of automated immigration gates helps in optimizing passenger processes at airports and also in reducing the time spent by travelers.

Multimodal biometrics are more accurate as they use two or more biometric technologies, such as fingerprint, finger vein, iris, and voice pattern recognitions. Multimodal biometrics are more reliable, secure, and are also considered to be cost-effective as they are available with multiple technologies in a single device. As a result, the implementation of multimodal biometric systems will gain prominence across the globe and will mainly be adopted for border control applications.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a number of established international vendors. The market witnesses constant competition with the major vendors offering new biometric technologies such as contactless biometrics and acoustic characteristics to secure contracts. Moreover, vendors are constantly increasing their investments in R&D to develop next-generation ABC (automated border control) gates to provide more compact and user-friendly gates to the passengers.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Gemalto
  • NEC
  • Safran
  • Vision-Box

The other prominent vendors in the market are AOptix, Atos, Automatic Systems, Ayonix, eGate Solutions, and SITA.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the airport e-gates market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The Americas has the largest adoption of automated gates at the airports. This market study estimates that the Americas will account for about 46% of the total share of the airport e-gates market by 2020 and will also dominate this market throughout the forecast period. The recent regulations introduced by the US Customs and Border Protection agency mandates the implementation of facial recognition technologies at American airports, which will lead to a major shift toward the adoption of other biometric technologies such as facial recognition systems in the coming years.

Growth drivers, challenges, and upcoming trends: Contactless biometrics

Fingerprint recognition has been the most prominently used biometric systems at airports. Increasing instances of communicable diseases have resulted in the rise in the number of passengers reluctant to adopt contact biometric solutions in air terminals and other public areas. As a result, biometric technology vendors and biometric scanner manufacturers have started focusing on the development of contactless fingerprint scanners. The emergence of touchless technologies will help border control authorities to capture travelers' biometrics quickly and comfortably and also significantly improve the user experience. One of the major vendors, Safran has already announced the implementation of several new touchless biometric technologies, such as on-the-move systems and non-intrusive systems.
