Market Highlights

The global iris recognition market share is growing at a rapid pace. Iris Recognition provides advanced analytics applications to enhance security, increase throughput while improving user experience. With next-generation biometrics, organizations are gaining the capability to capitalize upon existing surveillance infrastructures, access control, and time attendance applications.

Iris recognition is hailed as a safer and more convenient security technology. It is almost there where one can think to bid goodbye to keys, cards, passwords, PIN codes, etc. Resultantly, the adoption of iris recognition is growing rapidly, and so is expanding its market value. The market is expected to continue to garner significant traction in the years to come.

According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global Iris Recognition Market Share is projected to create exponential valuation by 2027, registering a phenomenal CAGR during the forecast period (2020-2027). Increasing uptake of iris recognition technology in passport verification, border security control and crime-fraud prevention detection is a major tailwind for the market rise.

Additionally, the proliferation of next-generation biometrics and smart mobile devices, alongside the rising uses of this biometric technique in government and travel immigration industries, boosts the market size. On the other hand, technical limitations and cyber trojan horse attacks, such as spoofing tampering, false acceptance rate (FAR), and false recognition rate (FRR), pose challenges to market growth. 

Also, the prohibitive cost of deployment and risk involved in privacy intrusion are major growth impeding factors for the market. Nevertheless, the continual success of this advanced biometric in criminal investigations would support the market growth throughout the assessment period.
