“Voice recognition system to be the largest market for biometric identification“
The voice recognition system is one of the most common features that the manufacturers are now offering in the mid to high-end passenger cars. Although voice recognition is a basic feature as compared to other biometric identification technologies and has little role to play in vehicle security, OEMs are offering it as a comfort or driver assistance feature. Along with voice authentication, the voice recognition system is also used for navigation and infotainment. Owing to its multiple uses, the voice recognition system market is estimated to account for the largest market during the forecast period. This technology is expected to grow due to low prices (as compared with other features) and increasing demand for infotainment and navigation systems, which act as a differentiating feature for OEMs.
“Fingerprint recognition to grow at the fastest pace in the Biometric Identification Market“
With the increase in vehicle theft and demand for keyless entry and engine start functions, the demand for fingerprint authentication process has increased. In comparison to the other biometric processes, the fingerprint technique can be easily incorporated in the vehicle. Also, with economy of scale, it will offer a cost advantage to the manufacturers. Further, the manufacturer can also offer additional features with fingerprint authentication such as biometric engine start functions. With the introduction of autonomous cars, the fingerprint authentication system is expected to have a major impact. Features such as integrated mobility solutions and goods delivery through personalized pods/lockers can be incorporated. In-vehicle payment and identification are also expected to be carried out by fingerprint authentication. Hence, with technological and design modifications, the biometric fingerprint recognition market is expected to be the fastest growing market.
“Presence of a large number of manufacturers would drive the North American Biometric Identification Market“
The North American region is projected to have the largest share of the Biometric Identification Market during the forecast period. The market growth in the region can be attributed to the presence of a large number of manufacturers such as Synaptics Incorporated (U.S.), Nuance Communications, Inc. (U.S.), and Methode Electronics (U.S.), among others. Also, the rising concerns for vehicle security and increasing demand for luxury vehicles equipped with biometric module or system such as fingerprint recognition and iris recognition will boost the market for biometric identification in the region.
