Global Biometrics Market in the Government Sector to record strong growth until 2020

Biometric Authentication Systems

The global biometrics market in the government sector is likely to grow at a CAGR of over 11% until 2020, one of the most recent research reports from Technavio has been able to suggest.

The research paper, titled ‘Global Biometrics Market in the Government Sector 2016-2020‘, points out that some of the driving forces behind the growth of the global biometrics market in the government sector are various government initiatives related to attendance monitoring and access control, the increasing volume of identity thefts, the rising need for border security, as well as the wider adoption of cloud-based biometrics.

“Fingerprint recognition, which is the oldest biometric technology used in the government sector, accounted for the largest market share in 2015, with a 47.29% share. It was followed by facial recognition with 11.21%, iris recognition with 9.69%, and voice recognition with 7.35%. These three technologies will witness a high growth during the forecast period mainly due to their user-friendliness,” said Abhay Singh, one of Technavio’s lead industry analysts for automatic identification systems.

“In 2015, the defense department was the largest contributor to the market. The defense department uses biometric systems for monitoring purposes, access control, and identification of individuals. Governments across the globe allocate significant amounts in their defense budgets for biometric solutions, given their ever-rising importance. Defense spending on these solutions will remain high during the forecast period,” added Abhay.

Improved security and reliability with Tensor Biometric Access Control

Biometric technology uses human physical attributes as locks and keys, making it particularly suitable for access control systems on the buildings of large organisations. Using biometrics for security and identification requires meeting two challenges: they must be cheap enough and sufficiently simple to be used by ordinary users.

Furthermore, for enhanced security, these biometric access control systems should combine two or more types of authentication, such as coupling fingerprints with key codes or passwords to provide greater trust that who is logging in is only who is expected to do so.
