Increasing demand for vehicle security and comfort is projected to fuel the demand for advanced technologies such as iris or facial recognition system.
The biometric identification market for automotive is projected to grow at a CAGR of 25.61% from 2017 to 2022, to reach USD 21.72 billion by 2022.
On the other hand, the major factors hindering the growth of the biometric identification market in vehicles are the high cost of system or module and the possibility of potential failure of electronic components used for biometric systems.
The market for optical sensors is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period from 2017 to 2022. The optical sensors are lightweight and consume less power.As these components are used in the authentication system/modules such as fingerprint recognition, signature/keystroke recognition, and iris recognition, the increase in demand for biometric systems would directly influence the demand for components.
The biometric vehicle access system is projected to be the largest segment of the biometric identification market for automotive, by application. The growth of this segment can be attributed to increasing focus on comfort, safety, and vehicle security in premium cars in North America and Europe.
The manufacturers are now offering advanced features such as fingerprint authentication in high-end vehicles. With the increase in demand for luxury vehicles in Asia-Oceania, the market for biometric identification is expected to grow in the region in the near future.
The break-up of the primaries is as follows:
- By Company Type– Tier-1 - 55%, Tier 2 - 20%, and OEM - 25%
- By Designation— C level - 75%, Manager level - 25%
- By Region— Europe - 20%, Asia-Oceania–40%, North America - 10%, and RoW – 30%
