Biometric authentication market to focus on banking and consumer electronics, study suggests

Biometric Authentication Systems

The biometric authentication market will likely focus on opportunities in the consumer and banking sectors by 2021, market research company ABI Research has recently forecast.

The research paper points out that consumer and banking segments will experience 19% and 12% growth rates, respectively.

The research finds that enterprises are focused on employee authentication, as is the consumer sector on smartphones. The integration of fingerprint technology in smartphones will lead to the disruptive growth of the current consumer landscape.

ABI Research forecasts that fingerprint sensor shipments will hit close to two billion by 2021, accounting for an overall growth rate of 44%.

The increase will result in biometrics becoming particularly relevant in the automotive, data management, healthcare and telemedicine, smart home, and wearables IoT market segments.

“After establishing a foundation in smartphones and user authentication, the biometrics market is branching out and entering the evolving IoT ecosystem,” says Dimitrios Pavlakis, Industry Analyst at ABI Research.

“The revenue shift will happen as the market focuses on consumer devices and securing more investment from mobile and computing device OEMs, as well as large banks and credit card companies.”
