Contactless Biometrics Technology Market

The time consumption will be drastically reduced for a less intrusive biometric authentication device. This will also contribute to fewer tensions and less frustrated and unpleasant staff. Intrusiveness may lead to an increase in the time taken for successful authentication due to a waste of time in proper contact with the biometric system. It can significantly raise friction and annoyance due to failed attempts and inaccurate touch. As fingerprint recognition is becoming increasingly common, other biometric technologies like voice, facial and even vein pattern recognition is swiftly flooding the market. The deployment of fingerprint recognition for contactless card payments instead of PIN numbers is one of the areas that the banks and card issuers explore extensively.

The outbreak of COVID-19 was the key cause for the development and acceptance of contactless biometric technologies. Organizations, institutions and governments are still focused on hygiene with the spread of this deadly virus around the world. Contactless biometrics technology plays a crucial role in verifying personal identities by providing users with access controls without any physical contact with the security infrastructure. In addition, governments around the world have stepped up measures to adopt contactless biometric technologies to respond quickly to the crisis of COVID-19. This is anticipated to boost the demand for contactless biometrics technologies among government agencies for public safety surveillance.

Contactless Biometrics Technology Market: Introduction

  • Contactless biometrics technology is a technique of identifying different faces on a large scale. It is used to enhance the security through biometric face recognition. In addition, contactless biometrics is used to collect data of an individual through face detection, recognition, and on a cloud platform.
  • Contactless biometrics technology is a highly accurate and reliable system for personal biometric identification (including contactless modalities) and used for registration, time attendance, and management of personnel.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has been the main catalyst for the growth and adoption of contactless biometrics technology. Organizations, institutions, and governments are now focusing on hygiene with the spread of this deadly virus across the world. In order to verify personal identities, by providing access controls to users, without any physical contact with the security infrastructure, Contactless biometrics technology is playing a crucial role. Beside it, governments across the world have ramped up measures to adopt contactless biometrics technologies to swiftly respond to the crisis of COVID-19. This is expected to enhance the demand for contactless biometrics technology among government agencies for public safety monitoring.
