Market Overview

The market is expected to register a CAGR of 20.3 % during the forecast period 2020 - 2025. There is a growing need for trust between customers and public sector companies because the companies have access to additional information like geolocation, behavioral and contextual and interaction between both parties is mostly digital, which is driving the growth of advanced authentication methods. 

  • In the ever-evolving world of technology, the threat of data breaches is also ever evolving. There is a growing community of hackers who are responsible for compromising the username and password authentication. In order to stay in compliance with standards set by organizations that govern network security, advanced authentication methods are cropping up.
  • As the population and creativity of hackers grow, organizations are compelled to deploy new authentication methods which will ensure protection of customer data. It is forcing the vendors for continuous innovation. 

Scope of the Report

Every organization needs a reliable security system as a way to confirm the truth of something or the identity of a person. The basic or traditional password method is too often breached or copied or share, thereby exposing data to theft or malicious intrusions. Thus there is a need for two factor or multi-factor authentication. It greatly reduces the risk of threat.

Key Market Trends

Biometric Verification to Dominate the Market

  • Biometrics and advanced analytics are helping to revolutionise the way governments and public service agencies are addressing data security and privacy concerns.
  • Biometric technologies like facial recognition, iris detection and fingerprint recognition continue to improve, with more sophisticated sensors and algorithms helping to reduce false acceptance rates (FAR) and block attempts at spoofing.
  • In many countries, capturing biometric data has been mandated for civil identification. Some countries have also introduced national ID cards, which hold biometric identifiers like fingerprints in a chip.
  • US prisons are building biometric databases of inmates’ voices by having their voice prints digitized, for the sake of prison security and surveillance. Also, according to President Trump's order, facial recognition would be deployed in top 20 US airports for biometric verification of the identities of all travellers crossing US borders. 
  • As more and more states seek to regulate the collection, use, and retention of biometric data, Biometric Legislation Law was proposed across the United States in May 2019.
