Key Market Trends

Healthcare Sector Expected to Hold Major Share

  • In terms of the end-user industries, the healthcare sector is expected to drive technological transformation within the market. Biometric solutions in hospitals provide secure access to information and meaningful cost savings through fraud reduction. For instance, it cuts the cost associated with duplication of patient medical records, and thus, enhances the data security.
  • Biometric scanning technologies are fueling developments and improvements in the care delivery system in the healthcare sector. Moreover, incremental innovations in the field of communication have led to the use of IoT, thus, improving the healthcare management system. This factor has created an immense demand for biometric scan software in the current market scenario.
  • The increasing number of data breaches in the healthcare industry, giving rise to the adoption of biometric scan software. In 2018,  multiple US-based companies involved themselves in the healthcare sector, including Arm, ForgeRock, Philips, Qualcomm Life, Sparsa, and US TrustedCare announced that they had banded together to establish “OpenMedReady“, a standards body focused on ensuring that the patient data used by healthcare practitioners is accurate. They indicated that smartphone-based fingerprint recognition will be a key element in their framework, as a means of tying medical data directly to patients.

Competitive Landscape

The biometric scan software market is fragmented. The emergence of mobile identification solutions for providing access to invaluable information, such as positive identity verification, benefits verification, arrest records, restraining orders, and wants and warrants has penetrated the demand for biometric scan software. Overall, the competitive rivalry among existing competitors is high. Moving forward, acquisitions and collaboration of large companies are focused toward innovation. Some of the key developments in the area are:

  • Aug 2018 - NEC Corporation invested in Tascent, a U.S.-based provider of biometric identification solutions. Tascent’s technologies include optical control technology to remotely capture an accurate, high-quality iris image at high speed, and a user interface technology that guides users in support of capturing accurate biometric information.
  • Jun 2019 - NEC Corporation submitted a proposal to take charge of Malaysia’s digital identification project, as the government prepares to introduce biometric identities for all of its 32 million citizens. The finalized details of the project has not been revealed yet.
