Biometric Authentication Market 2020: Industry Insight and Major Players (Fulcrum Biometrics, NEC Corporation, Thales Group )

Rising usage of mobile biometric technology and inclination towards cloud based biometric solutions are expected to drive the growth of the biometric authentication market. The global biometric authentication market was valued at USD XX million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD XX million in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 15.5% during the forecast period.

Biometric authentication is a process of verifying individual’s identity through unique biological characteristics that are previously stored in the database. It compares and matches biometric features of an individual to verify that a person trying to access a particular device is authorized to do so or not. Rising usage of mobile biometric technology is driving the demand biometric authentication market. Private industry and governments are more inclined towards usage of mobile biometrics in order to speed up the processing of user identification. Mobile biometrics helps in verifying individual biometric feature on a mobile device which is portable and can be easily shifted or moved from one place to another. This can be achieved on a mobile device either with the help of biometric sensors or by attaching portable biometric hardware to it via WiFi connection or USB cable. This helps in speeding up the biometric authentication process at various industries.
