Healthcare Biometrics Market

As more healthcare networks have begun to store patient records electronically, there has been an imminent rise in concern with regards to the security of such data and many networks are moving to biometric technologies for addressing this concern. Among the currently used biometric technologies in healthcare, fingerprint recognition is the most accurate personal identification method for securing limited access systems from external attacks. The long history of fingerprint identification and its extensive use in forensics have mainly driven the demand for fingerprint recognition in healthcare security systems. Fingerprint recognition can be used in for both identification and verification purposes. In verification, fingerprint systems compare the input fingerprint to the enrolled patient or healthcare personnel and determine if they correspond. In identification, this technology is used to compare the input fingerprint with those of the enrolled users in the database to ensure secure access. The growing list of areas where fingerprint recognition can be used in healthcare networks along with the advent of compact and cheap sensors and advanced processors have augmented the demand for fully automated, real-time and highly accurate systems.

For the purpose of this study, global healthcare biometrics market is studied for their application in following areas:

Healthcare Biometrics Market

Among the considered usage areas, hospitals and clinics occupy the largest share in the global healthcare biometrics market. Hospitals and clinics currently form the major hub of primary purpose of healthcare biometrics namely patient identification and tracking and workflow management. These organizations form the largest areas where patient and healthcare personnel are found and optimum management of the information of such individuals at hospitals and clinics is of prime importance. Moreover, containment of the incidents of healthcare frauds is best achieved through efficient adoption and implementation of healthcare biometric solutions systems in hospitals and clinics. In addition, it is suggested that pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing, and research and academia will be the fastest growing usage areas where the adoption of advanced biometric solutions will be the fastest. Safeguarding the extensive amount of intellective property, research data and other such sensitive information is becoming of prime importance to such institutions, this touting the imminent need for biometric security solutions.

Geographically, the global healthcare biometrics market is cumulative to North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.

Healthcare Biometrics Market

At present, North America is the clear leader in the global healthcare biometrics market with a market share of approximately 40% in 2016. Early introduction of healthcare biometric technologies in the healthcare system, greater patient pool as against other parts of the world, extensive patient data in both care system as well as in clinical trials, and existence of evolved healthcare scenario are the key factors contributing to the dominance of healthcare biometrics in North America. Additionally, it is expected that Asia Pacific market will witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. Exponential growth in patient pool admitted in hospitals, growing research initiatives being conducted in house and outsourced, and proliferation of medical tourism facilitate the growth of Asia Pacific market. Moreover, rapid development of the healthcare infrastructure in large economies such as India, China, Mexico, and others will serve as major penetration opportunities to prime market players.

The detailed regional classification of the global healthcare biometrics market is as follows:

  • North America (U.S. & Canada)
  • Europe (U.K., Germany, and Rest of Europe)
  • Asia Pacific (China, Japan, and Rest of Asia Pacific)
