Biometrics-as-a-Service Market Increasing Demand for Cloud-Based Security Solutions Drives Growth 2028

The global biometrics-as-a-service market is projected to witness significant growth, reaching USD 6,291.7 million by 2028, according to a report by Reports and Data. Biometric security services have gained popularity as a robust commercial security solution, offering several advantages such as enhanced security through precise validation. These authentication systems rely on various biometric traits like facial recognition, fingerprint scans, iris recognition, and vein pattern recognition.

Biometric systems are highly effective in securing both public and private offices by enabling attendance tracking, authentication, access control, and more. Compared to traditional security methods, biometric systems provide more accurate identification, thereby reducing the risks of security breaches. Access is granted only through biological characteristics that are difficult to replicate, such as iris scans or fingerprints. As a result, the system offers highly reliable information, contributing to improved security and accountability.

By logging activities through a biometric system, organizations can establish a clear connection between employees and specific actions or events. This capability becomes valuable in addressing potential security breaches in the future. The ability to trace actions back to specific individuals enhances accountability and aids in investigations.

Overall, the increasing adoption of biometric security systems as a service is driven by the need for stronger security measures, accurate identification, and improved accountability across various sectors, including commercial establishments, government agencies, and healthcare facilities.

Further key findings from the report suggest

  • Among the technologies, the fingerprint recognition accounted for the largest market share of ~31% in the year 2018. Fingerprint identification is based on different patterns of human fingers, which are unique among all individuals. It is the easiest and most convenient way of identifying a person. The primary advantage of the fingerprint identification method is that the fingerprints pattern remains the same for a person throughout the life of an individual, making it a reliable means of human identification.
  • The iris recognition technology is forecasted to witness a higher growth rate of 23.7% during the forecast period. The characteristics of an iris are significantly unique for each and can be recognized from a distance. That’s why it is difficult to be forged. As compared to the false acceptance rate and the false rejection rate of other biometric modalities, this method is remarkably lower. In such a way, it becomes the most secure authentication technology and has been used in financial institutes, borders, hospitals, and several sensitive projects.
  • The mobile applications accounted for the largest market share of ~27% in the year 2018. In smartphones today, fingerprint recognition has become accessible for users. Various banks have integrated this feature into their mobile banking application. The fingerprint sensor, also called touchID in iPhones, can be combined to unlock the banking app and authorize payments. This added layer of security reduces the risks of the password getting hacked. As the user does not have to remember the password, it is more convenient and user-friendly.
  • North America held the largest market share of ~29% in the year 2018. With the growing proliferation of mobile devices in the region, the demand for biometrics technology is expected to boom in the coming years. The broader acceptance of mobile transactions will provide the manufacturers with opportunities to make design changes to incorporate biometric features.
