Healthcare Biometrics Market Research, 2031

The global healthcare biometrics market size was valued at $5.2 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $24.9 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 17.4% from 2022 to 2031. Biometrics are used in doctors’ offices, hospitals, and other healthcare settings to ensure accurate patient identification and patient monitoring. Access control and patient record storage are two examples of applications. Biometrics can be used for patient monitoring outside of traditional healthcare settings, and biometrics are also being used to develop applications such as electronic prescriptions and remote diagnosis.

Healthcare Biometrics Market

Rising healthcare IT application combined with increasing awareness and demand for cyber security and biometric development catering to healthcare facilities are the major driving factors contributing to the healthcare biometrics market growth. In addition, the government takes steps to enact a number of laws to ensure hospital security. Today, any health industry must meet stringent security requirements. Another market motivator is government support. The use of biometrics is required in critical hospital rooms. Government support to improve security is causing positive market changes. Fraud and data threats are significantly reduced as a result of these initiatives. These critical drivers will boost the revenue rates of the healthcare biometrics market size.

The cost of the healthcare biometric system is significant, requiring additional investment on the part of hospital and clinic management. As a result, patients face higher treatment costs, increasing the overall cost of the healthcare system. This proves to be a stifling factor in the market's growth. When using a biometric scanner, a number of issues arise that are difficult to resolve by a human operator. Errors in presenting the individual information to the system result in an error in the final result, causing the user discomfort.

The healthcare biometrics industry players are investing a lot of effort on the research and development of smart and unique strategies to sustain their growth in the market. These strategies include product launches, mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, partnerships, and refurbishing of existing technology. In March 2022, BioIntelliSense had announced the release of its medical-grade BioButton Rechargeable wearable device. The new BioButton Rechargeable device can monitor a wide range of 20+ vital signs and physiologic biometrics continuously for up to 30 days on a single charge, depending on configuration. In August 2021, RAIsonance, Inc., an artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML)-based technology company, announced the launch of a new product, SoundPass. SoundPass is a non-medical, biometric tool using multi-factor authentication (MFA) for establishing and maintaining a bubble of perimeter security around the premises or a group of people.

The key players profiled in this report include Zotero, NEC CORPORATION, Crossmatch Technologies, Fujitsu Limited, Bio-Key International, 3M Cogent, Inc., Suprema Inc., IDEMIA (Morpho), Imprivata, Inc., and Integrated Biometrics.

The global healthcare biometrics market is segmented into Technology, Application and End-User.

Healthcare Biometrics Market by Technology

By technology, the fingerprint recognition sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. Due to higher reliability and ease of access, the fingerprint identification market has the largest share. The system is more secure thanks to DNA recognition, which is expected to increase demand for biometrics systems in the healthcare sector. The fingerprint recognition pattern is the most widely used biometric system in the world, and it is gaining traction in the small-scale industry as well. These are predicted to be the major factors affecting the healthcare biometrics market size during the forecast period too.

Healthcare Biometrics Market by Application

By application, the medical record and data center security sub-segment dominated the global healthcare biometrics market share in 2021 owing to stringent government regulations such as Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH), which work to keep patient information private. Furthermore, rising adoption of Electronic Health Record (EHR) by medical centers is expected to drive market growth. The importance of data security in healthcare extends to any location where data may be used or accessed, including the endpoint. Any device that can access, process, or store PHI is considered an endpoint, and this includes mobile devices, tablets, laptops, desktop devices, and connected devices such as printers.

Healthcare Biometrics Market by End-User

By end user, the hospitals sub-segment dominated the global healthcare biometrics market share in 2021. Hospitals use advanced technology on a large scale to eliminate the large crowds that tend to visit this setup while accompanying the patients. Because it is extremely difficult for medical staff to operate when there is too much chaos, the healthcare biometric system assists in authenticating people's entry by allowing only eligible people into the main premises of hospitals.

Healthcare Biometrics Market by Region

By region, North America dominated the global market in 2021 and is projected to remain the fastest-growing sub-segment during the healthcare biometrics market forecast period because of the high number of frauds and crimes in the healthcare sector. The prevalence of fraudulent activities is expected to accelerate the adoption of these technologically advanced biometric systems for collecting patient and registration data. Furthermore, the establishment of new healthcare facilities such as hospitals and clinics may serve as a primary driving force for the region's growth in this market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Healthcare Biometric Industry

  • COVID-19 had a positive market impact. Biometrics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning were critical in responding to the pandemic. Biometric systems have been integrated and adopted as critical tools for COVID-19 early detection, medical screening, and public safety monitoring around the world.
  • In key areas such as law enforcement, surveillance, healthcare, border control, and biotechnologies, biometrics have been integrated into infectious disease prevention and control procedures.
  • According to healthcare biometrics industry analysts, touchless biometric identification technologies such as face recognition and iris recognition will gain traction during the COVID-19 pandemic. To combat the spread of COVID-19, law enforcement, government agencies, and other organisations switched from touch-based biometric authentication to touchless biometric authentication solutions.
