Behavioural biometrics set for sturdy growth

Access & Identity Management Handbook 2022 Access Control & Identity Management

According to a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global market for behavioural biometrics is anticipated to top US$9 billion by 2031, surging at a CAGR of 20% over the next 10 years.

Behavioural biometrics is a technology that analyses measurable patterns in human activities. These patterns include mouse activity, keystroke movement and device movement. Behavioural biometrics identifies interactive gestures, such as how individuals type on a keyboard, how they use the mouse, how they move the device and how they touch the screen.

Physical biometrics involves fingerprints or iris patterns, whereas behavioural biometrics continuously evaluates a user’s ongoing interaction with their devices. Behavioural biometrics discriminates between a legitimate user and a cybercriminal by identifying unique patterns in human activities.

Financial institutions, businesses and government facilities are using behavioural biometrics for payments, online banking and secure authentication. The behavioural biometrics market is expected to accelerate rapidly as products and services are moving into advanced digital security beyond simple passwords and PIN codes.

Wide acceptance of behavioural biometrics for fraud prevention and detection in financial services, consumer applications and government applications is set to drive market growth at a fast pace over the coming years.

Key takeaways from the study

• Global behavioural biometrics market to top US$9 Bn by 2031.
