Country Specific Statistics & Information
Developing countries such as India and South Korea are increasingly targeted by the key players to develop and launch the biometric payment features into the existing range of products. For instance, in August 2022, Samsung Electronics and MasterCard have signed MoU as a part of which the two companies will be launching payment cards with built-in fingerprint sensors. Hence, the two companies will be launching payment experiences while reducing physical contact with payments terminal.
Furthermore, according to an article published in October 2022, merchants across the U.S. are expected soon to be able to accept biometric payments authenticated by a customer’s fingerprint using a point-of-sale (POS) solution launched by payment processing provider Green Payments. The solution is anticipated to allow users to link different payment options stored in a digital wallet including credit cards, bank accounts, and cryptocurrencies to individual fingers and then make in-store purchases at the POS by tapping the relevant finger on a biometric sensor.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, advanced authentication in financial services market demand has increased as there was surge in preference for cashless transactions. The COVID-19 pandemic increased the requirement for POS terminals equipped with radio frequency identification, biometric technology, and other technologies that accept payments through contactless chip cards and digital interface cards due to the need for contactless payments. The growth of advanced authentication in financial services market systems during the pandemic had enabled the interaction of customer relationship management (CRM) as well as other financial solutions for organizations. Thus, the pandemic had a moderate impact on advanced authentication in financial services industry.
