The Global Automotive Biometric Market was valued at USD 209 Mn in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 673.7 Mn by 2027, with a growing CAGR of 18.2% during the forecast period.
Automotive biometrics refers to electrical components that identify individuals supported by physiological and behavioral characteristics. Using biometrics, such as fingerprint recognition at doors and steering wheels, microphones in cars that recognize the owner's voice, and others. Biometric systems obtain the necessary data, analyze it with the existing records, and then grant the owner complete access once the match is made.
With the growing focus on the development of autonomous vehicles, demand for advanced automotive biometric is set to increase. In the automotive security industry, biometric systems have gained wide acceptance because of their high accuracy. Since biometric systems rely on biometric mechanisms such as fingerprinting, voice recognition, and iris scanning, among others, there is a probability that personal information can be compromised.
In addition to this, the growing demand for aesthetics and comfort features in automobiles has led to an increase in the use of automotive biometrics. Using automotive biometrics, the user can personalize his/her vehicle. A biometrics system in an automotive is connected to an interior camera that can recognize the driver's face and adjust the seat, mirror position, temperature, navigation, and other parameters according to the knowledge stored during a database. For instance, in September 2021, Genesis announced that it will begin rolling out of its own “Face Connect” technology, enabling vehicles to recognize human faces, open and close doors without using a smart key. Thus, this technological advancements proliferating the demand for automotive biometric market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact on the Automotive Biometric Market Analysis:
The global biometrics market and its technologies are still emerging, largely due to the rapid development of biometric use-cases and the shift to multiple biometric modalities encompassing physiological and behavioural factors. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic and changing user preferences for biometric identification is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Access control and identity management based on fingerprint biometrics have been the preferred method since the prevalence of its application and commercialization around the turn of the century. The changing effects of the pandemic have had the most dramatic impact on identity and access management within the physical and digital security environment. Face recognition gained traction before the spread of the pandemic, and contactless biometric solutions must become the most popular because they could alleviate issues surrounding health and safety. This industry will see widespread adoption much sooner than initially anticipated.
