How is New Technology Adoption Driving Market Growth for Behavioural Biometrics?

As several behavioural patterns and data points are being continuously collected by behavioural biometrics, any combination of data can be employed for the identification of a user. Thus, the authentication is precise and accurate, and users cannot practicably be impersonated.

Advent of AI in behavioural biometrics is a major growth driver for the market. Since the fundamental incident signals in which the device user’s behavioural data, such as length of stride and speed of typing are encoded, it cannot be easily susceptible to human interpretation.

Hence, AI-driven behavioural biometrics undertaking is adding impetus to the market by delivering real-time results. Rising demand for behaviour-based technologies will be a major factor for the emergence of AI in behavioural biometrics.

Due to an increase in the number of Internet users, people have found their digital journey painful as they are losing their security trust on online activities and privacy. This need to protect sensitive data from cyber intrusions with modern security and increasing demand for voice recognition in behavioural biometrics has driven market growth.

What are the Key Challenges Faced by Behavioural Biometrics Providers?

One of the major challenges faced by behavioural biometrics providers globally is high installation cost. Due to ongoing technology upgrades, initial cost of adopting behavioural biometrics has increased rapidly, which restrains end users from purchasing these solutions.

This is especially prevalent in developing nations where budgets for educational institutes will not be able to accommodate this technology. Even in developed nations, the cyber security budget of many companies is rather limited, which can hinder the adoption of behavioural biometrics-based mobile authentication solutions.

Concerns associated with the security of the technology and high cost of cloud-based behavioural biometric tools are some of the restraining factors that may affect the growth of the biometrics market to some extent.

Which Region Offers Huge Opportunity for Providers of Behavioural Biometrics?

Owing to growing demand for behavioural biometrics in the BFSI segment and ICT sector in North America, the region is anticipated to hold more than 40% share in the global market for behavioural biometrics.

Availability of IT infrastructure and increasing demand for gait recognition are factors expected to drive growth of the market in the region.

Further, the region benefits from governmental interest and funding in security sectors. The government is known to aggressively fund research and start-ups in the field of behavioural biometrics.

Rising demand for behaviour-based authentication software in Canada, latest trends of behavioural biometric software in Japan, and growing demand for behavioural biometrics in Germany are supplementing market growth in these respective countries.

What Makes Behavioural Biometrics Software Hold a Higher Market Share?

The software segment is the highest revenue-generating segment accounting for 60% of global revenue. Growing demand for reliable and safe digital transactions globally, owing to increasing penetration of smartphones and e-commerce, is leading to increased adoption of behavioural biometrics software.

To reduce fraud, increase security, and minimize costs associated with traditional multi-factor authentication solutions and passwords, vendors are developing behaviour-based authentication software. Additionally, rising number of fraudulent activities coming to light is driving demand for behavioural biometrics tools.

  • For instance, in March 2019, Veridium Ltd., a provider of identity and access management software, launched InMotion for VeridiumID, the company’s software-only platform for mobile security.

Behavioural biometrics platforms provide enhanced mobile security for individuals and businesses. The software makes use of User Behavior Analytics (UBA) to identify patterns in human behaviour and detect anomalies, which could indicate security breaches, using statistical analytics.

Introduction of such innovative software based on behavioural biometrics is further expected to drive growth of the software segment over the next ten years.

Why Do Large Enterprises Lead Demand for Behavioural Biometrics?

Large enterprises focus on implementing behavioural biometrics in their business applications to enhance customer loyalty and reduce overall infrastructure costs. This trend is expected to drive demand for advanced behavioural biometrics applications in the large enterprises segment to a great extent.

Increasingly sophisticated data theft and cyber-attacks are driving the adoption of behavioural biometrics-based cyber security measures, which provide adaptive authentication and persistent security for large enterprises. Furthermore, behavioural biometrics tools allow large enterprises to meet increasingly stringent cyber-security regulations and standards such as ISO 27001, NIST 800-171, and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Increasing advances in technology and technology-driven business models increase customer expectations for a high-end security experience to protect their data. To provide an improved security experience, large enterprises are adopting a combination of two or more biometrics modalities such as face detection biometric technology, fingerprint biometric systems, and voice recognition in behavioural biometrics, so as to offer secure services to their customers.

Has COVID-19 Impacted the Behavioural Biometrics Industry?

Healthcare, banking, and retail are the top industries adopting contactless biometric technologies for enhanced safety. Due to COVID-19, many of the public and private sectors are using behavioural biometrics for ensuring modern security.

The world has seen demand for secure, hygienic, and convenient authentication systems during this pandemic. It has been difficult for users to touch card readers, keypads, and devices for identity authentication.

The pandemic has forced top biometric component and equipment manufacturers to halt manufacturing operations on a temporary basis to obey government rules, and due adverse impact on supply chains, revenue of companies has been affected. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the entire global economy in unprecedented ways.

Various companies or industries have asked their staff to work from home, and this has intensified the need for digital solutions. With the outbreak of COVID 19, the market for behavioural biometrics is expected to witness significant growth due to increasing cyber-attacks and data breaches across the globe.
