Biometrics as a Service is a service that authenticates and identifies persons based on their behavioral and biological traits. It offers a solution for ensuring that only authentic users have access to the services, largely through the use of facial recognition and microphones for speech capture.
The global biometrics as a service market was worth USD 1.6 billion in 2020 and is predicted to be worth USD 3.88 billion by 2028, expanding at a 17.9% CAGR from 2021 to 2028.
Growing desire for cost-effective solutions to access advanced biometrics competencies, as well as rising acceptance of cloud-based services, are two main drivers of biometrics as a service industry. The increased security of biometric data stored in the cloud, as well as the integration of biometrics-as-a-service into current systems, are two reasons that could hinder biometrics as a service business. However, rising e-commerce demand increased mobile device usage, and improved security awareness are all creating chances for the biometrics as a service market to grow during the forecast period.
Traditional biometric techniques for incorporating biometric capabilities into commercial applications are expensive and time-consuming. A cloud-based platform that blends cloud capabilities and technologies with biometrics infrastructure is known as biometrics-as-a-service. This enables biometric authentication and onboarding on the cloud platform while eliminating the costs of the database, network, and storage components. The biometric capture device is the only hardware component required to capture individual biometric input, making these solutions easier to implement and pushing their acceptance across multiple industries. Furthermore, most biometrics-as-a-service companies offer integration services to help customers integrate biometrics capabilities into their existing systems. This further decreases the technical resources necessary to integrate the service. Companies are continuously in need of such low-cost solutions, which is boosting global demand for them. The growing demand for comprehensive authentication systems, as well as the increasing acceptance of cloud-based services by enterprises worldwide, is one of the primary reasons driving the market’s favorable outlook. Both government and private businesses are deploying advanced BaaS solutions to prevent security breaches and identity theft.
Modality Type Segment Analysis Preview
Unimodal systems are easier to implement and manage than multimodal technologies. Unimodal technologies, on the other hand, are more prone to attacks such as spoofing and less dependable than multimodal systems. As a result, these systems are employed in businesses where high levels of security and reliability are not required. These are well-known due to their low cost and ease of accessibility. The other modality type is multimodality.
