Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Automated Border Control Market size is expected to reach USD 7 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 14% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of automated border control was USD 2 Billion. The reason behind the growth is due to the growing travel and tourism industry across the globe. The travel and tourism industry has had a strong upswing driven by a rise in foreign travel and shifting customer tastes. For instance, the travel and tourism industry increased by more than 20% from 2021 to 2022, contributing around 7% of the world's GDP. Particularly, global travel and tourism revenue is expected to reach around USD 105 billion in 2028, growing at a rate of over 3% between 2024 and 2028. 

The growing deployment of advanced technologies including artificial intelligence is believed to fuel market growth. Artificial intelligence (AI) with a border focus is being developed and used through the application of facial recognition technology for a variety of reasons, including border control, asylum, and migration. The term "artificial intelligence" (AI) has evolved to refer to automated technology and border control systems that are considered new and could be applied to verify individuals and items as well as detect and identify dangers.

Automated Border Control Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Terrorism - Terrorists use a wide range of travel strategies to reach locations across the globe, which has led to increasing efforts to improve border security, leading to a higher demand for automated border control.
  • Growing Need for Security in Seaports - Seaports are "possible targets of illegal activity", therefore automated border control is essential for the secure transportation of products via sea.
  • Increasing Digital Transformation- Verification of digital IDs is getting more and more common since it allows passengers to complete the entire immigration process without having to interact with border control personnel in person and eliminates the need for manually reviewing travel documents.
  • Rapid Integration of Smart Borders - With the use of automated and biometric technology, nations are implementing smart border control, which helps expedite border crossing, and improve the experience of visitors at the border.


  • Security and privacy concerns - Automated border control systems typically collect personal data owing to the establishment of biometric databases which raises privacy issues and ethical concerns since biometric data is considered inherently insecure and participants distrust the government's ability to protect it.
  • Stringent regulatory standards for the protection of data may hamper the automated border control market growth
  • High implementation and maintenance costs can be a challenge for the lower economic region

Automated Border Control Segmentation

Procedure Type (Integrated Two-Step Process, One Step Process, Segerated Two-Step Process)

The integrated two-step process segment is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 52% in the coming years owing to the growing need for border security. Border security agencies are under pressure to maintain the highest levels of security owing to the growing instability in geopolitical and territorial conflicts. This has led to the increasing adoption of integrated two-step processes for automated border control where verification of security documents and authentication of travelers is done by following two steps for identifying potential threats before they reach the border. Moreover, the integrated two-step process involves verifying the traveler in separate steps, and the validation after document authentication occurs only if authentication is successful.

In addition, single-step procedures do not require registration and allow for one-step verification to verify the traveler's identity.

Solution Type (ABC E-Gates, ABC Kiosks)

The ABC E-Gates segment in automated border control market is set to garner a notable share shortly. E-gates, also known as automated border control systems (ABC), are automated self-service barriers a high-performance automated border control solution that enables automated and fully secure self-service border crossing processing for travelers with biometric ID cards to provide comprehensive self-service security and identification upon international departure and arrival. ABC eGate is based on advanced technology to manage multiple people simultaneously by minimizing queues and the time required to pass through a private airlock while avoiding traffic congestion.

In addition, ABC is a self-service kiosk that expedites the arrival of eligible passengers, that are easy to use reduces waiting times at the border, and improves customer satisfaction. The world's most reasonably priced kiosk solution supplier is ABC Kiosks, which gives the authorities standard trip information, helps to reduce potential bottlenecks, and enhances passenger flow by enabling parallel passenger processing.

Component (Hardware, Software, Services)

The Hardware segment is poised to gain a noteworthy share shortly. The automated border control system is based on biometric technologies which include physical hardware such as document verification systems, biometric systems, baggage scanners, and digital ID authentication which enable the authorities to efficiently process travelers while maintaining high levels of security.
