The mobile biometrics market is expected to grow from USD 4.03 Billion in 2015 to USD 49.33 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 29.3% between 2016 and 2022. The increased security breaches and the rising threats to the public and private properties have led to the need for mobile biometrics. One of the areas where mobile biometrics can provide substantial support is eliminating fraudulent multiple identities or preventing identity frauds.

The mobile biometrics market has been segmented on the basis of components, authentication modes, industries, and geography. The single-factor authentication mode is expected to lead the market during the forecast period, while multi-factor authentication in biometrics is an emerging trend in this market. The growth of the market is primarily driven by factors such as government initiatives, increasing use of biometrics in smartphones, e-passports, and use of biometrics technology in crime identification & banking.

Fingerprint recognition is the leading single-factor authentication method and is expected to lead the market during the forecast period as it is the cheapest and most widely used method across all industries.

The consumer electronics industry led the mobile biometrics market in 2015. The finance and banking industry is expected to grow at a prominent growth rate during the forecast period. The increasing size of mobile transactions and the growing e-commerce supports the growth of mobile biometrics in these industries.
