Global Iris Recognition Market Size More Than Doubles to at Robust CAGR of 17% Reaching USD 9 Billion by 2029

Published | 31 March 2023

Global iris recognition market is flourishing because of an increasing demand for security features, growing concerns for privacy, and rapid adoption of iris recognition technology in mobile devices.

BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated global iris recognition market size at USD 3.64 billion in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, BlueWeave expects global iris recognition market size to grow at a robust CAGR of 17.08% reaching a value of USD 8.94 billion by 2029. Major growth factors of global iris recognition market include an increasing need for secure authentication and identification systems, the widespread adoption of biometric technology in various industries, and the advancement of iris recognition systems. The market growth is also fueled by the integration of iris scanners in smartphones, higher adoption rates in government projects, rising incidents of fraudulent activities, and growing security concerns. Governments are increasingly turning to biometric technologies to enhance cybersecurity and facilitate system access, with some police departments also utilizing iris recognition technology.

Iris scanning is frequently used in conjunction with other biometric technologies, including fingerprints and face recognition, as seen in the biometric verification procedures implemented in the UAE. Also, major banks are leveraging iris recognition technology for various applications, including authenticating mobile banking apps and providing speedy and convenient experiences for their customers. These factors are expected to contribute to the expansion of the global iris recognition market during the forecast period. However, high costs associated with the deployment of iris recognition systems are anticipated to restrain the growth of global iris recognition market during the period in analysis.

Global Iris Recognition Market – Overview

Iris recognition is a type of biometric identification system that uses mathematical pattern recognition technology on video images of one or both irises of an individual's eyes. The patterns of the iris are unique, stable, and visible from a distance, and the technology uses video cameras with near-infrared illumination to capture detailed images of the iris. Iris recognition can accommodate contact lenses and glasses and is accessible to blind individuals with irises. Despite its versatility in securing identification, popular iris scanners can be tricked by high-quality images of irises or faces. The scanners can be difficult to adjust and may not be convenient for multiple people of varying heights. Lighting changes can also affect scanner accuracy. Additionally, iris scanners are more expensive than other forms of biometrics, passwords, and proximity card security systems.
