Global Biometrics Market in BSFI Sector to Grow at a CAGR of 20% During the Period 2016-2020; Finds New Report

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Global Biometrics Market in BFSI Sector 2016 - 2020” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/02/2016 -- Report forecast the global biometrics market in BSFI sector to grow at a CAGR of 20% during the period 2016-2020.

Security of data and financial assets have been a key concern for banks as well as for customers. Numeric keypads, keys, and identity badges were widely used to prevent unauthorized access to data and premises. With technological advancements, two-factor authentication was introduced, where individuals could gain access to secure premises after they are authenticated twice, via hardware devices and numeric codes. However, hackers can gain access to hardware devices and obtain numeric codes, which increases the security risks, especially in the BFSI sector.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global biometrics market in BSFI sector for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of biometric solutions in the BFSI sector, including insurance companies to mitigate insurance claim frauds.

The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
- Europe
- North America
- South America

According to the report, increase in digitization of banking services will drive growth in the biometrics market in BSFI sector. The increased use of smart devices and smartphones and tablets have led a digital reformation of the banking sector. The BFSI sector is one of the prominent users of portable devices for digital payments and cashless financial transactions. With the growing transaction volumes and the introduction of new digital payment solutions, the banking sector is challenged with the need to keep the magnitude of fraudulent activities low, without compromising on the convenience of the customers.

Further, the report states that high cost of deployment restricts adoption of biometrics in the BSFI sector. The major inhibitor for the adoption of biometric technologies in the BFSI sector is its high cost. Alternative security solutions such as swipe cards, access cards, tokens, and keypads are relatively cheaper than biometric systems. Therefore, these traditional security solutions are popular with SMEs in the BFSI sector in developing and under-developed countries. Installation and maintenance of some biometric systems on a small scale is inexpensive, whereas the lifetime cost of other sophisticated systems used in large-scale operations is costly. Costs for such large-scale systems include not only the initial capital expenditure (CAPEX) for hardware and software, but also includes the cost of issuing identity documents, training and employing staff, maintaining equipment, and managing databases. Also, the adoption of biometric technology involves hidden costs associated with the implementation of middleware, application software, and system integration, which is further inhibiting the growth of the market.
