The integration of behavioral biometrics with biometric solutions, which aids in ensuring authentication in financial institutions, businesses, government facilities, and retail point of sale, is increasing the product's industrial demand.

Fintech companies, telecom operators, retailers, banks, and other industries have begun to use contactless biometrics technology for client identification. Furthermore, it is anticipated that it will become a required process for authenticating and identifying clients when opening a new or current account.

However, unlike passwords, biometric data is impossible to replace, which is a major market limitation. Because biometric data is physically irreplaceable, an alternative solution must be employed to replace biometric authentication.

Key Takeaways:

  • Facial recognition is the fastest-growing technological category. During the forecast period, the segment is expected to rise 5.6X.
  • The software segment is expected to provide the most revenue by component. By the end of the forecast period, the market is expected to generate an absolute dollar opportunity of USD 34.1 billion.
  • During the forecast period, identity verification under the application is expected to rise 5.3X. By the end of 2031, the segment is expected to have a market value of USD 52.9 billion.
  • The segment that generates the most revenue is North America. In 2021, the region will have a market share of over 30%, with a growth rate of 16.0% from 2021 to 2031.

Growth Drivers:/b>

  • With the emerging internet of things lead to global contactless biometrics market growth.
  • Integration of behavioral biometrics help in securing authentication to propel the demand for contactless biometrics.
