Palm Recognition Biometrics Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Prevalence Cybercrimes to Boost the Market Growth – cybercrimes are generally committed via the internet which to break palm recognition biometrics, a hacker needs physical access to it. This factor is a major restraint between a security system and a hacker. Hence, the surge in cybercrimes is projected to hike the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in 2022, around 200,000 cybercrimes took place across the globe.

  • Rising Cases of E-commerce Fraud – a surge in the cases of E-commerce fraud is stated to drive the market growth since biometrics are difficult to copy and use for malicious activities. Hence, the number of E-commerce fraudulent can be reduced using Recognition Biometrics. For instance, in 2022, approximately USD 40 billion were lost to online payment fraud around the world.

  • Increasing Biometric Payment Method – nowadays, people prefer online methods to make payments. Online payments are more convenient and safer than using real money. For instance,  in the United States, around 72% of people were ready to use fingerprint authentication than PIN code in 2021 while this figure for Saudi Arabia was anticipated to be around 88%.

  • Growing Sales of Smartphones across the Globe – fingerprints and biometrics are highly utilized in smartphones nowadays to enhance the security of these devices. For instance, the unit sales of smartphones were projected to be around 1.5 billion in 2021 while nearly 1 billion mobile phones were shipped across the globe.


  • High Deployment Costs of Palm Recognition Biometrics
  • Most organizations restrict to technology updates owing to the fear of the high costs that they would have to pay for them. As palm recognition biometrics usually cost high, hence, upgrading the existing systems of the end-users to the new technology would require significant investments, which is anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, as businesses and governments are under constant threat from hackers, the fear of data theft or fraud is also therefore anticipated to limit market growth over the forecast period.
  • Fear of Privacy Intrusions to Hamper the Market Growth
  • Lack of IT Professionals to Operate Palm Recognition Biometrics

Palm Recognition Biometrics Segmentation

Type (Palmprint, Palm Vein Biometrics)

The global palm recognition biometrics market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by type into palmprint and palm vein biometrics. Out of these segments, the palmprint segment is estimated to gain the largest market share in the year 2035. Palmprint recognition authentication systems are based on the information that has been acquired from the palm imprints of an individual. The key advantages of using palmprint recognition are its user-friendly nature and greater flexibility. Palmprints are used in the applications such as criminal, forensic, or commercial. For instance, it was estimated that 30% of the latent prints found at crime scenes come from palms. Upon the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, these palm recognition systems observed a significantly high demand from various end-users for their contactless authentication properties The palm vein biometrics segment, on the other hand, is also projected to grow by holding the second-largest share of the segment. Palm vein recognition authentication systems measure the vein patterns and utilize infrared light to map the vein structure underneath the skin of an individual’s palm. Moreover, as palm vein biometric systems use a contactless authentication technology, hence it finds massive utilization in hospitals and other environments where hygiene is a key factor.

Component (Hardware, Software, Services)

The global palm recognition biometrics market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by component into hardware, software, and services. Amongst these three segments, the hardware segment is expected to garner a significant share in the year 2035. The common examples of hardware associated with palm recognition biometrics are readers, scanners, cameras, and others, out of which, the scanners segment was projected to cross USD 16 million in the year 2021. Hardware palm recognition equipment is good for integration, training, and maintenance. Additionally, the digital cameras segment is anticipated to reach approximately USD 1 billion in 2023.
