logoMarket Overview

Biometric authentication is used by biometric payment systems, a point-of-sale (POS) technology, to speed up transactions and payments. A type of point-of-sale method known as biometric payment uses biometric authentication to identify the customer or end-user and allow the fund withdrawal from their bank account. Furthermore, the most popular type of biometric payment is a fingerprint. The development of complex biometric authentication technologies like palm recognition, eye recognition, and others has occurred in addition to the fingerprint biometric authentication technique. However, because of the ease of use and relative affordability of fingerprint identification systems, biometric payments made possible by fingerprint authentication technologies are most widely employed in the market. A method that enables identification using many identifying modalities, such as the fingerprint, iris, palm, etc., all from a single biometric payment terminal, has been made possible by technological improvements is the multi-modal biometric payment terminal system.

The biometric payments industry has grown significantly during the previous four years in terms of value. The market for biometric payments is also expected to grow by double digits during the projected period due to its ease of use. The global biometric payment market is rising significantly as a result of growing biometric use case scenarios in the consumer electronics sector, as well as expanding formats of authentication and identification devices, to name a few. Additionally, it is projected that the global biometric payment market will grow over the course of the research period due to an increase in the need for surveillance and security measures as well as an increased risk of external threats like terrorist attacks. Additionally, throughout the forecast period, factors relating to quick, simple, and secure solutions as well as an increased acceptance rate of biometric-based applications and devices, would support the expansion of the global biometric payment market.

logoCOVID-19 Impact:

Due to the rules and regulations prohibiting physical contact from preventing the disease, the contactless payments business boomed during COVID-19. The market for biometric payment cards benefitted from the rising usage of biometric payment methods like voice-based payment to avoid direct contact because it gives contactless payment options in addition to chip-enabled payments. According to IDEMIA, 76.0 percent of customers worldwide in 2021 have a favorable opinion of biometrics, and 81.0 percent are prepared to replace PIN codes with fingerprints. Such market trends create a great potential for the replacement of conventional payment methods with innovative contactless and quicker payment processing choices.

logoKey Insights

  • The global market is estimated to witness growth at a CAGR of 9.5% during the forecast period
  • On a technological basis, in 2021, the single-factor authentication market category is anticipated to have the biggest market share.
  • On a deployment basis, in 2021, the hardware category is anticipated to have the largest market share.
  • In 2021, North America dominated the global market.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Advancements in smartphone technology

Additionally, the simplicity and convenience of using mobile phones for online transactions have resulted in a huge increase in transactions made through smartphones, which is also expected to support the segment's growth in the global market for biometric payments. Furthermore, the market for mobile payments, which had a value of USD 133.2 billion in 2018, is predicted to rise at the greatest CAGR throughout the course of the projection year.

logo Restraints

  • Information breach

Payment using biometric means is debatable. Historically, law enforcement has been linked to fingerprint scanners. Critics of biometric payment are concerned that law enforcement or governmental organizations may have access to fingerprint sensors. However, biometric payment service providers rapidly clarify that their databases do not contain the customer's actual fingerprint. The point-to-point measurements of the finger are used to generate an encrypted integer that they store.

Instead of using the actual fingerprint, that number is utilized to confirm a customer's identification. The bottom line is that a biometric payment system, like any system that accesses private data, is only as safe as the databases and transactions it is linked to.

logo Opportunities

  • Implementing new technologies to improve the customer payment experience

Global providers of biometric payment cards are constantly integrating innovative technologies to enhance the payment experience for customers. For instance, the second-generation T-Shape sensor module from biometric business Fingerprint Cards met Mastercard's stricter security requirements in January 2022. With greater security, this technology made payment processing simple and convenient for both customers and businesses. As a result, these technological developments create several possibilities for the market's future expansion.

logo Challenges

  • Lack of technological infrastructure

One of the main factors limiting the growth of the biometric payments market globally is the lack of adequate technological infrastructure in many different countries, along with other technical barriers seen in biometric systems, such as problems with facial and voice recognition and fear of security uncertainties.

logoSegmentation Analysis

The global biometric payment market can be segmented into technology, type, and deployment model.

Based on technology, the global biometric payment market can be divided into single-factor authentication, fingerprint recognition, iris recognition, palm recognition, face recognition, signature recognition, voice recognition, biometric smart card, and multimodal segments. The single-factor authentication market is predicted to have the most market share at the start of the forecast due to variables like increasing convenience, cost-effective solutions, and quick functional replies, to name a few.

The contact-based, contactless, and hybrid categories make up the global biometric payment market, respectively, according to type. The hybrid segment is predicted to have the largest market share at the start of the projection because of the growing usage of reliable and trustworthy biometric solutions and better safety incentives against spoofing and forgery-related intrusion attempts. The global biometrics payment market can be broken down into hardware and software depending on the deployment model. The software category is predicted to hold the largest market share at the start of the forecast due to factors like the increasing acceptance of cloud-based services and AI-related adoption measures in the field of biometric devices, to name a few.

logoRegional Landscape

  • Rising number of dominating players is likely to help North America dominate the global market

In 2021, North America had the largest share in the biometric payment market due to the abundance of biometric payment solution providers and their extensive use of them in the region. The existence of a sizable number of businesses functioning in the market can be blamed for the expansion of the regional market. More than 70 percent of New York's Visa cards will support biometric payments by April 2021. Such acceptance is being sparked by the New York MTA's introduction of contactless on all subways and buses. Therefore, it is anticipated that the rising usage of biometrics as a form of payment in North America would open up growth potential for the local industry.

The biometric payment markets in the Asia Pacific and Europe are expected to trail North America in terms of revenue by second and third, respectively. However, the China biometric payment market is predicted to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period due to the nation's rising digitization, internet usage, adoption of smart devices and smart technologies, and changing consumer transactional behavior. Additionally, during the forecast period, the biometric payment market will expand its presence in the region due to rising consumer awareness of the higher security benefits derived from biometric payment solutions and decreased pricing alternatives for these devices. The region's biometric payment market will rise as a result of increased government measures to increase the impact of biometric payment devices, as well as increased deployment of biometric payment devices in airports, banks, ATMs, and other public locations. During the forecast period, a sizable market share will be attained because of the rise of trustworthy vendors in the area and expanded international player penetration.
