Historical Vs. Future Outlook on Biometrics Middleware Sales
Biometrics middleware has gained traction in the past years with rising demand from BFSI, healthcare, and various government sectors. With reliable security solutions gaining ground across diverse end-use segments, suppliers and manufacturers have invested further in research & development (R&D) activities in order to manufacture advanced products. Overall, the industry outlook for biometrics middleware has remained positive during the last 5 years from 2016 to 2021, apart from a temporary decline in 2020.
While incorporation of cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence is aiding market expansion, the trend of digitalization is creating lucrative revenue streams for industry players. Furthermore, rising adoption of biometrics middleware in military, law enforcement, and other governmental sectors is expected to fuel the sales of manufacturers through 2031.
How is Adoption of Artificial Intelligence Spearheading Demand for Biometrics Middleware?
As biometrics middleware providers are incorporating artificial intelligence in developing new products, it is pushing the demand-supply graph upwards around the globe.
AI-driven biometrics have extensive application in different domains, such as-
- Fraud prevention in financial services sector
- Risk-based payment authentication
- Effective prevention of massive data breaches
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has taken up an initiative named “Executive Order on Maintaining American Leadership in Artificial Intelligence” in 2019, in order to develop technical standards and related tools in support of reliable and robust systems equipped with AI technologies. This, in turn, is aiding the growth of biometrics middleware providers.
An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs
What are the Key Challenges Faced by Biometrics Middleware Providers?
Despite having unlimited security features, biometrics middleware is expensive and often not affordable by small to medium institutes or residential sector users. Also, there are a few negative sides that act as restraints to key players, such as-
- Complex technical features
- Biometric verification takes time and may not be suitable to be performed on a daily basis in institutes or offices with a high number of employees
- Additional hardware integration requires extra cost
- While the world is adopting the ‘new normal’, this system might not comply with the terms of hygiene, as thumb impression verification and others require physical touching
However, these few disadvantages of biometrics middleware are outpaced by its various advantages, and hence, manufacturers are optimistic of new opportunities coming their way.
What’s Increasing the Profit Margins for Biometrics Middleware Suppliers in the United States?
Technical advancements and surge in demand from healthcare, IT, and government sectors are fuelling the sales of biometrics middleware suppliers in the United States. As key end-use sectors are getting back on track after overcoming the negative impacts of the pandemic, the U.S. is anticipated to lead in North America as far as biometrics middleware is concerned.

As stated in the report, the United States IT sector accounts for US$ 1.8 trillion of the U.S. value-added Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and 11.8 million jobs. These statistic imply the unlimited opportunities for players in the U.S. biometrics middleware market.
How Lucrative is the Opportunity for Biometrics Middleware Providers in Germany?
Germany has emerged as the most lucrative country in the world’s second-largest biometrics middleware industry - Europe. Increase in requirement from BFSI, governmental, and other sectors coupled with digital advancements are propelling market growth in Germany.
As stated in a report titled “Financial Sector- Germany”, published by the Germany Trade and Investment (GTAI) organization, in Germany, financial services and insurance providers contributed nearly EUR 120 billion to the GDP in 2019, which is equivalent to almost 4% of total domestic GDP. These statistics indirectly point towards the new opportunities for biometrics middleware manufacturers in Germany.
Why is China Leading the World’s Fastest-growing Asia Pacific Biometrics Middleware Industry?
China has been leading in the world’s fastest-growing biometrics middleware industry - Asia Pacific, and is predicted to maintain its position during the forecast period. Backed by highly advanced digital, IT, residential, and healthcare sectors, China is in the limelight for biometrics middleware providers.
According to a report titled “Technology and ICT China”, published by China Country Commercial Guide on 30th July 2019, China’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry is among the most dynamic sectors in the country. As per the report, by the end of the year 2021, the industry is projected to reach US$ 8.1 trillion, representing 55% of China’s GDP. This gives an estimation of how big the opportunity is for biometrics middleware developers in China.
Will India Offer Stakeholders Heightened Returns?
India is a highly lucrative market for biometrics middleware, owing to its well-developed manufacturing infrastructure and growing adoption of modern technological solutions by industry players. With demand from governmental and IT sectors rising again, India is expected to remain in the limelight for biometrics middleware manufacturers throughout the forecast period.
As stated in a report titled “Software and Services Sector”, published by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology on 10th January 2020, the Indian Information Technology Enabled Services Industry is highly progressive and subject to further advancements.
