The global Biometric Sensor Market Size is expected to reach a value of $1.5 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period.
Biometric sensor is a type of transducer that transforms biometric entities such as voice, face, fingerprint, and others into electrical signals which can be then processed digitally. The system that is equipped with biometric sensors compares and validates the user by comparing the biometrics of the user with the database of biometrics present within a given system. Once the user is authorized, access is then granted to the user accordingly. The introduction of biometrics in identification process has replaced ineffective systems such as the use of passcodes and PINs, which could be easily hacked. Growing incidences of cybercrimes and security breaches would be the leading causes for the growth of the global biometric sensors market. However, substantial R&D investments would pose as a challenge for the market growth. The rise of internet age has given rise to several challenges; therefore, the need for a superior security system is the pressing need of the hour. Biometric sensors are used in commercialized buildings, banking sectors, medical & research labs, and in smart weapons owing to superior levels of security protocols.
