Biometric-as-a-Service Market Trends

Growing desire for cost-effective solutions to have access to biometrics capabilities boosts the market growth

The typical biometric approach for integrating biometric capabilities into commercial applications is costly and time-consuming. Biometrics-as-a-service is provided through a cloud-based platform that combines cloud capabilities and technologies with biometrics infrastructure. This enables biometric onboarding and authentication on the cloud platform while removing the expense of the database, network, and storage components. 

The only hardware component required is a biometric capture device to record individual biometric input, making these solutions easier to implement and increasing their acceptance across many sectors. Furthermore, most biometrics-as-a-service companies provide integration services to assist customers in integrating biometrics capabilities into their existing systems. This decreases the requirement for technical resources to integrate the service even more. Businesses always need such low-cost solutions, fueling market CAGR globally in recent years.

Furthermore, the growing usage of these solutions in the banking, healthcare, and retail sectors is boosting market development. For example, banking service providers provide mobile-based applications for virtual transactions and digital wallets, which are very sensitive and can only be accessed via advanced authentication methods such as fingerprint scanning and face or voice recognition, which is another factor driving the growth of the biometric-as-a-service market revenue.

Biometric-as-a-Service Market Segment Insights

Biometric-as-a-Service Components Insights

Based on components, the Biometric-as-a-Service Market segmentation includes Solutions and Services. The services sector is expected to dominate the market throughout the Biometric-as-a-Service Market revenue forecast period. The increasing demand for upgrade and maintenance services drives the segment's expansion throughout the predicted period. Furthermore, the growing need for integration services in sophisticated business systems will increase the segment's demand. Services sector revenue is predicted to expand quickly over the projection period due to the rising BaaS technology maintenance or upgrade requirement. Increased use of this technology by the BFS and IT industries and manufacturing firms will fuel revenue development in this area.

Biometric-as-a-Service Deployment Insights

Based on the deployment, the Biometric-as-a-Service Market segmentation includes Cloud-Based and On-Premise. The cloud-based segment held the majority share in 2022, contributing to around ~65-67% of the Biometric-as-a-Service Market revenue. The Cloud-Based segment is currently dominating the Biometric-as-a-Service Market. Cloud-based solutions can be easily accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, and businesses can easily scale up or down their usage depending on their needs.

For instance, SkyBiometry upgraded the version of its cloud-based face detection and identification algorithm in July 2019 with major advancements that make the system considerably more accurate and enable a larger variety of facial traits to be detected. Fujitsu has collaborated with ImageWare Systems (IWS) to offer Biometric-as-a-Service solutions. Enterprises may be prepared for a BYOD working environment and security-enhanced services for mobile transactions by combining Fujitsu's cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) with IWS' biometrics authentication technology.

Biometric-as-a-Service Organization Size Insights

Based on the organization size, the Biometric-as-a-Service Market data includes large, small, and Medium Enterprises. The large enterprises segment dominates the Biometric-as-a-Service Market. Large enterprises typically have greater financial resources and are more likely to have complex security needs. As a result, they are more inclined to invest in biometric authentication systems. Additionally, large enterprises often have more extensive IT infrastructures, making it easier for them to implement and manage biometric-as-a-service solutions.

However, the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) segment is expected to grow faster than the large enterprises segment in the coming years. This is due to the increasing awareness of the benefits of biometric authentication solutions and the growing availability of cost-effective cloud-based biometric-as-a-service solutions that are easy for SMEs to implement and manage.

For instance, Qopper, a US-based IoT network startup, announced two new solutions, The Occupancy Monitor and the Temperature Kiosk, in June 2020 to assist retail and commercial establishments in securely reopen following the relaxation of COVID-19 limitations.

Biometric-as-a-Service Vertical Insights

Based on vertical, the global biometric-as-a-service industry includes BFSI, IT & Telecom, Hospitality & Travel, Media & Entertainment, and Healthcare. The BFSI (Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance) segment will dominate the Biometric-as-a-Service Market in 2022. BFSI companies are subject to stringent regulatory requirements and are particularly vulnerable to cyber-attacks and fraudulent activities. Biometric authentication solutions provide a reliable and convenient way to verify the identities of customers, employees, and partners, reducing the risk of unauthorized access and fraudulent activities.

However, the healthcare segment is expected to grow faster in the coming years. The adoption of biometric authentication solutions in healthcare is increasing due to the growing need to secure patient data and comply with regulatory requirements such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Additionally, biometric authentication solutions are being used to improve patient identification, reduce medical errors, and prevent fraud and identity theft in the healthcare industry, positively impacting the market growth.
