The top three revenue-generating end-user segments for the global finger biometrics market are discussed below:

Global fingerprint biometrics market in government sector

The government sector has adopted the fingerprint biometric technology due to the rising incidences of violent activities and intrusions in the past. In 2014, the fingerprint technology was widely adopted because of the low cost of hardware systems. Moreover, the adoption of fingerprint technology is increasing due to the increasing adoption of mobile biometrics in the government sector for law enforcement.

According to Amrita Choudhury, an industry expert in IT security from Technavio, “The need to track employees and government initiatives, such as e-passports, border control programs, and e-governance, are fostering the growth of the market. For instance, the FBI of the US Department of Justice is using fingerprint technology for law enforcement in the region.”

Global fingerprint biometrics market in transit sector

The fingerprint biometrics market in the transit sector is experiencing a revenue growth due to a rise in the implementation of fingerprint biometric technology for cross-border programs at various airports and seaports. Several immigration counters have integrated fingerprint recognition technology to enhance passenger verification, increase workforce efficiency, and reduce queuing up at counters.

“Some countries, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand, use fingerprint biometric technology for border entry control. The US government has embedded a chip in the passport and visa documents that contain fingerprint scan, photograph, and a digitized signature, which will help in authentication of the individual,” says Amrita.

Global fingerprint biometrics market in healthcare sector

The implementation of stringent regulations, such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), for maintaining patient privacy has led to the growth of the market revenue for fingerprint biometrics. Additionally, fingerprint recognition is being used as an option to ID cards to track time and attendance of employees. Fingerprint biometrics is also being integrated into mobile devices, used by doctors for remote access to patient's records.

For instance, Arizona’s Children’s Clinics for Rehabilitative Services, which was previously using PINs and passwords has implemented Crossmatch’s data protection and access software. This software prevents unauthorized access to patient records.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Gemalto
  • BIO-key International
  • Crossmatch
  • HID Global
  • M2SYS Technology
  • NEC
  • OT-Morpho
