Biometric system market, published by MarketsandMarkets, size is estimated to grow from $33.0 billion in 2019 to $65.3 billion by 2024; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.6% during the forecast period.
Multi-Factor Authentication Segment to Grow at Highest Cagr During Forecast Period
The growth of the multi-factor authentication segment is attributed to the increasing deployment and the need for security to avoid hacking attacks on sensitive information, especially in government and defense applications. The combination of multiple identifiers adds an extra level of security, making the system more effective, accurate, and reliable. In addition, a multimodal biometric system can reduce the failure to enroll (FTE) and failure to capture (FTC) rates. The rapid development of biometric smart cards for payment and identification purposes is expected to drive the growth of the multi-factor authentication segment.
Contact Functionality Type Segment Expected to Have Largest Market Size During Forecast Period
Contact-based biometric systems include palm, fingerprint, and signature recognition systems. Of these, fingerprint recognition systems have been in the market for the longest period. Widespread adoption of fingerprint recognition systems is driving the market for contact-based biometric systems. Since fingerprint recognition is mostly used in contact-based biometric systems, the increasing demand for fingerprint recognition solutions would have a positive impact on contact-based biometric systems. Signature recognition is also gaining traction owing to the low deployment and procurement cost associated with this technology. Emerging applications such as sports and entertainment are also expected to deploy fingerprint recognition solutions extensively in the coming years.
Market in RoW to Grow at Highest CAGR during Forecast Period
The region is currently contributing less to the overall market. The increasing demand for advanced identity management solutions from various governments in this region to maintain security at border crossing points is the main factor fueling the growth of the biometric system market in the region. Furthermore, the countries in the region have started adopting fingerprint-based biometrics for banking and finance applications.
