Driven by Consumer and Enterprise Segments, Biometrics Market Forecast to Grow to US$26.8 Billion in 2020

17 Mar 2015

​Overall market revenues for biometrics are forecast to hit US$26.8 billion in 2020, most of which is still stemming from government. “However, due to increased consumer acceptance of biometric modalities, consumer and enterprise segments are predicted to catch up with governmental spending in late 2017 and take the dominant portion of the market, hitting 29% CAGR for the period 2015 to 2020,” comments Dimitrios Pavlakis, Research Analyst at ABI Research.

“More companies are rising to the challenge expecting a bigger slice of the market, especially in the consumer and enterprise segments. However, since biometric technology is comprised of multi-layer applications spanning diverse ecosystems, there will ultimately be winners and losers,” adds Pavlakis. “This is because simply creating a matching biometric algorithm will get you nowhere. Developing a sustainable, scalable, and dependable biometric solution requires a plethora of factors that need to be addressed for both present and future markets. Players in this space will need to take into the account the ever-changing technology as well as consumers’ expectations.”
