The global biometrics market will grow to $7.9 billion by 2027, according to a forecast by market consultancy ASDReports. This reflects a compound annual growth rate of 6.37 percent from 2017.

The increased attention is due to new uses for facial recognition and fingerprint identification capabilities.

Trends include a growing reliance on biometrics to secure national borders, use of multimodal biometrics over unimodal biometrics, and increased sales of mobile biometric devices.
