Compact and Low-powered Portable Biometric Devices to Gain Increasing Adoption in Military Biometric Market

Biometrics is increasingly becoming one of the most crucial elements of attempts aimed at tightening security at national borders, confirming identity, facilitating and securing travel, and keeping a track of people entering and exiting a country to mitigate the issue of illegal immigration. Biometrics are also gaining increased adoption in military operations, with countries setting up new or revitalized identification policies across sea, land, and air borders. The biometric industry is bracing itself to face the vast challenges that come with the huge set of opportunities that military application offers; technological advances and the rapid influx of innovative, mobile, and low-power devices are helping the biometric industry make the most of the opportunities available in the area.

A recent report by Transparency Market Research (TMR) states that the global market for military biometrics will exhibit a promising 7.4% CAGR over the period between 2017 and 2025, rising to a valuation of US$5,650.5 mn in 2016 to US$10,620.6 mn.

In this blog post, TMR analysts highlight some of the key trends observed in the global military biometric market in the recent times:

Which regional market is at the forefront of the overall development of the market?

North America and Europe are presently the leading contributors to the revenue of the global military biometrics market. The two regions collectively accounted for a more than 55% of overall market in 2016 and are expected to retain their dominance over the next few years as well.

North America is envisioned to steer the global market towards an excellent growth path owing to the stringent rules regarding identity of people entering or leaving, especially the U.S. Vast rise in defense budgets and the adoption of advanced biometric technologies by other countries as well will continue to help North America retain the top spot in the global military biometrics market in the near future.

How is the nature of competition in the global military biometrics market?

The vendor landscape of the global military biometrics market features a large number of companies operating amid intense competition. The field is highly dynamic in terms of technological advancements and influx of innovative products. The trend of mobility is making inroads in the field and portable devices with high precision scanning in a compact form factor are entering the market at a rapid pace.

Recently, fingerprint sensor company Integrated Biometrics launched a pocket-sized fingerprint scanner that can be powered by a smartphone. The company envisions that the rugged designs of the compact device, named FIVE-0, is certified by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and is Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) compatible, will make it useful across a number of applications in areas such as intelligence, law enforcement, border control, and military.
