Immigration Control System Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Integration of IoT Technology - Advanced technology in immigration control system aimed at enhancing the functionality and capacity of border control systems are increasing the need for IoT devices and services to increase the accuracy of border crossing processes.  Continuing concerns about border security are increasing the demand for creative countermeasures to security threats. IoT-based biometrics has the potential to transform automated border controls while increasing traveler convenience and reducing security risks at borders.
  • Increasing Security Concerns Due to Territorial Conflicts - The main reason for the market's growth is a heightened awareness of national safety concerns due to the growing territorial conflict among the two regions, as well as concern for passengers' comfort. An increasing number of people shift to other countries without proper passport and visas and become illegal immigrants over a particular region, this raises the security concerns more as thus drives the market growth further. In 2019, an estimated 25 to 40 percent of all illegal immigrants to the U.S. entered the country on legal visas at airports, then overstayed, and the rest entered the country illegally, according to a United Nations report.
  • Growing Penetration of Chip Installed Passports - The need for reengineering the process from enrolment to issuing has arisen, as more and more passports are produced using chips or microprocessors. With millions of people accessing e-passports the deployment of smart air terminals and smart borders is rapidly growing. Furthermore, in order to address a variety of objectives, such as law enforcement, border controls, the identification of workers, access control, and attendance checks, biometric sensors have been deployed by governments around the world.


  • High in Cost – ICSs can be expensive to implement and maintain, requiring significant investment in hardware, software, and personnel. This can be a challenge for governments, especially those with limited budgets.
  • Accuracy and Reliability is Predicted to Hamper the market Growth in the Upcoming Period
  • Lack of Standardization is estimated to Pose Limitation on the Market Expansion in the Predicted Period.

Immigration Control System Segmentation

Verification (Image Processing, Biometric, Facial Recognition, Fingerprint Recognition)

In terms of verification, the biometric segment in the immigration control system market is anticipated to hold the highest CAGR of 40% by the end of 2036. Multimodal biometric systems consisting of facial recognition, fingerprints, and iris scanning in one integrated system are expected to be increasingly used. The system uses unique human identification parameters which are validated precisely and stored in a database of the system. In order to ensure the authenticity of data, this biometrics system is applied with E-passports and scanning systems. According to the South African Department of Home Affairs, a new biometric digital identity system called NIS is currently being developed and will help increase citizens' access to various services from January 2022, which would be beneficial for other countries.

End User (Border, Airports, Seaports)

Immigration control system market from the airport segment is anticipated to hold significant revenue share of 30% during the forecast period. Significant market shares are expected to be held by the aviation sector. It will keep its position, in particular by virtue of a significant rise in airports and an ever increasing number of air passengers over the forecast period. Two of the most significant drivers for market growth that have been examined are an increasing threat of terrorist attacks as well as security standards established by international bodies, such as IATA, ICAO and ACI. Longer check-in times create overcrowding, forcing travelers to spend longer periods of time in lines. In order to prevent people from standing in long lines the concept of e-gates in airports was introduced. The technological advancement reduces time in airport check-in and is suitable for measuring security at the airport. The growing prevalence of e-gates at airport further drives the segment growth in the upcoming period.
