[68 pages Report] MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global biometric-as-a-service market size to grow from USD 1.2 billion in 2019 to USD 2.7 billion by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 17.0% during 2019–2024. Major growth drivers for the market include increasing users and data-security initiatives by government, growing usage of mobile devices, and increasing demand for robust fraud detection and prevention systems.
In the biometric-as-a-service market by offerings, the services segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Services are mostly support services for upgradation or maintenance, which are either a part of the subscription plan or a standalone service. Additionally, services revenues are mostly derived from integration services with complex enterprise applications.
Unimodal solutions are easy to deploy and less complex than multimodal technologies. However, unimodal technologies are more vulnerable to threats, such as spoofing, and are not as reliable as multimodal systems. These systems are therefore deployed in industries where high levels of security and reliability are not required.
North America is expected to contribute the highest market share, in terms of revenues during the forecast period as it is a technologically advanced region, with a high number of early adopters and the presence of major market players. Factors such as large-scale funded programs and employee access monitoring in buildings are driving the revenue growth in this region.
Major vendors in the global market include NEC (Japan), Aware (US), Fujitsu (Japan), Nuance (US), Leidos (US), Idemia (France), M2SYS (US), Smilepass (UK), Certibio (Brazil), HYPR (US), BioID (Germany), Accenture (Ireland), Fulcrum Biometrics (US), and Phonexia (US).
Nuance is a well-established voice biometrics solution and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) solutions provider with a wide geographic presence. The company's segments include healthcare, enterprise, automotive, and imaging. It caters to multiple verticals, such as financial services, government, healthcare, legal, manufacturing, education, and logistics. The company has expanded its biometrics solution portfolio with the addition of behavioural biometrics solutions by partnering with BioCatch, a leading behavioural biometrics solutions provider.

The study consists of 4 major activities to estimate the current market size of the biometric-as-a-service market. An extensive secondary research was done to collect information on the market, the peer market, and the parent market. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with the industry experts across the value chain through primary research. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the complete market size. Thereafter, the market breakup and data triangulation procedures were used to estimate the market size of the segments and subsegments of the biometric-as-a-service market.
In the secondary research process, various secondary sources, such as D&B Hoovers and Bloomberg BusinessWeek, have been referred to for identifying and collecting information for the study. Secondary sources included annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies; whitepapers, certified publications, and articles by recognized authors, gold standard and silver standard websites, Research and Development (R&D) organizations, regulatory bodies, and databases.
Various primary sources from both the supply and demand sides of the biometric-as-a-service market were interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information for the study. The primary sources from the supply side included industry experts, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (VPs), marketing directors, technology and innovation directors, and related key executives from various vendors of biometric-as-a-service solutions, associated service providers, and system integrators operating in the targeted regions.
