GCC Biometrics Market Overview:

The GCC biometrics market was worth US$ XX Billion in 2022, expanding at a CAGR of X% during 2017-2022. Looking forward, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around X% during 2023-2028, reaching a value of US$ XX Billion by 2028. Biometrics are utilized to authenticate the identity of users by analyzing their physical, biological, and behavioral characteristics. Some commonly known biometrics identifiers include facial recognition, fingerprints, finger geometry, retina scanning, digital signatures, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) matching, heart-rate sensors, iris, vein, and voice recognition. They rely on advanced methodology, a secure system, and data and device access to provide convenience and reliability. They also offer various advantages, such as faster authentication, convenience, accuracy, flexibility, scalability, access control, high security, and assurance. As a result, biometrics are extensively utilized in the public banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI), healthcare, aviation, information technology (IT), and telecommunication industries across the GCC region.

The market is primarily driven by the extensive applications of biometrics in various end-use industries. For instance, biometrics is extensively adopted in the healthcare sector to prevent fraudulent claims and enhance data security. Moreover, biometrics is utilized in the transportation sector to allow hassle-free traveling. Besides this, the escalating demand for biometrics in the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) industry to secure sensitive data from fraud attacks represent another major growth-inducing factor. The market is further propelled by the installation of biometrics systems at seaports and airports to provide immigration control, surveillance, and access control to staff and authorities. Along with this, with the growing incidents of theft and criminal activities, the GCC government is developing and incorporating a biometric database to prevent convicted expatriate workers from re-entering the countries. This, coupled with the increasing utilization of cloud-based biometric systems in the education and training sector to record class attendance, augmenting the market growth. Apart from this, technological advancements in biometrics tools that combine different biometric methods, such as iris and facial recognition, are accelerating the product adoption rate. Furthermore, extensive investments in research and development (R&D) activities by key players to develop automated biometric systems with enhanced accuracy and response time are creating a positive market outlook across the GCC region.
