Global Biometric Vehicle Access Systems Market reached US$ 0.9 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 1.8 billion by 2030, growing with a CAGR of 12.1% during the forecast period 2023-2030.

The rising emphasis on the development of self-driving vehicles is expected to drive the growth of the biometric vehicle access systems market. Biometric systems are increasingly being used in vehicle security systems due to their increased accuracy. Due to the biometric system is so reliant on biological validation, such as fingerprint scanning and face recognition technologies, it increases the level of security.

Some automakers, like Ford, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Volkswagen, have started to integrate biometric systems into their vehicles to improve customer safety and convenience. Due to the widespread adoption of automotive biometrics has been noticed, which might fuel global biometrics market growth.

For example, LG Electronics created a new technology in January 2022 that will allow car owners to start their automobiles without needing a key by recognising their facial expressions and finger gestures using numerous in-car cameras. One of the cameras is used by the biometric authentication system to identify the user's individual body parts. Based on the data from the first camera, a second camera modifies its viewing angles to record the user's iris and other biometric information.

Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region in the global biometric vehicle access systems market covering about 1/4th of the market in 2022. The region's countries have seen the most dramatic changes in the biometrics market. The Asian economy's GDP development and the substantial presence of car manufacturers produce a large market demand for Asian countries such as China and India.


Rising Awareness for Vehicle Safety and Security

The high degree of reliability as it asks for biological evidences such as fingerprint scan, face and others, thus enhancing the level of safety, is a major reason driving the growth of the automotive biometric vehicle access system market. Biometric access systems are challenging to hack or steal because they do not require passwords.

Furthermore, because access is provided based on the owner's recognition, hackers cannot easily discover the passwords. Biometric vehicle systems are easier to use and faster to operate. Some car manufacturers, including Ford, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen, intend to implement biometric systems into their vehicles for the safety and convenience of their consumers.

Tesla's advanced driver assistance systems in the Model 3 and Model Y vehicles, for example, used face recognition to guarantee that the driver was seated and paying attention in May 2021. The camera data is stored and analysed locally within the vehicle. According to a Tesla patent application for an AI automotive system, the company is experimenting with using face biometrics to track passenger whereabouts or personalise settings.

Growing Implementation of Iris Recognition

Iris recognition is regarded as a reliable and accurate biometric technique for driver verification in autos and players are advancing with other capabilities, such as safeguarding the various services given through the gateway. Hyundai submitted a patent in April 2022 for a system that makes use of iris scanning technology to authenticate the driver's identification as they enter the vehicle. The device also prevents anyone from starting the vehicle until a biometric match is found.

EyeLock recently announced a partnership to integrate their iris biometric verification technology into the SiriusXM e-Wallet in a highly safe, touchless gateway prototype. While driving or riding, drivers and passengers are going to able to find, pay for or pre-pay for coffee, petrol, movie tickets or parking. It aids in the elimination of vehicle distractions by gathering iris biometrics from the driver or passenger using EyeLock's custom-designed, visor-mounted prototype. The innovative technology serves to a major future trend in biometric application in iris recognition, which is driving market growth.

High Installation Costs

The implementation of biometric vehicle access systems necessitates a significant initial cost. The price includes the procurement of biometric hardware and software components like fingerprint scanners, facial recognition cameras and palm vein scanners, as well as their integration with the vehicle's current infrastructure. Manufacturers and customers can discover the initial deployment to be prohibitively expensive.

Users may require instruction on how to utilise the technology properly and customer support services for troubleshooting and assistance must be available. It can be expensive to develop and maintain the software needed for biometric vehicle entry systems. Creating algorithms for feature extraction, pattern recognition and secure data transmission are all part of software development. Furthermore, regular software updates and maintenance add to the overall cost.

Segment Analysis

The global biometric vehicle access systems market is segmented based product, technology, application and region.

Growing Adoption of Automation Vehicles Drives the Growth of Facial Recognition

Facial recognition is expected to drive the market by holding a share of about 1/3rd of the global market in 2022. The deployment of technology aids in vehicle access control and safety. Market enterprises are attempting to incorporate a solution to track driver and passenger behaviour by measuring their emotions. With the advancement of technology, it is projected that the use of facial recognition to integrate safety and access will become increasingly prevalent.

For example, if the driver appears sleepy or dizzy, the vehicle can take over to ensure safety. The aspects increase the market potential of these solutions. Jaguar Land Rover is exploring a device that monitors the occupant's emotions. The driver's facial expressions are monitored via a camera mounted to the steering wheel and biometric sensors. If the system detects that the driver is stressed, it can modify the ambient lighting to calming colours.

Geographical Penetration

Adoption of Advanced Technologies in North America

During the forecast period, North America is the dominant region in the global biometric vehicle access systems market covering more than 35% of the market. It is one of the world's largest car production centres. The region's automotive sector is facing tough competition from the used automobile market. As a result, car manufacturers in the region rely on newer technology, such as biometrics, to offer value and differentiate themselves in the market.

The corporations are positioning and segmenting their biometric solutions in the market strategically. For example, Ford Global Technologies in Michigan was issued a patent in February 2022 for face recognition systems fitted into vehicles that recognise their drivers and unlock the doors on sight.

Furthermore, a patient was filed at U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in January 2022, implying that the rumoured Apple Car would be integrated with onboard AI. The patent describes the technical specifics of the onboard system, which includes cameras that can identify the individual's biometrics while seated in the automobile and override control to that individual if a directive to break away from exterior control is given.

Competitive Landscape

The major global players in the market include: Hitachi Ltd, Fujitsu Ltd, Nuance Communications, Safran S.A., Fingerprint Cards Ab, Synaptics Incorporated, VOXX International, Voicebox Technologies, Hid-Global and Methode Electronics.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

With the epidemic spreading globally, automakers are having difficulty regulating their output levels and component supplies in the globally market. The global automotive production unit has declined precipitously as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In accordance to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association, thus far, EU-wide output losses due to factory shutdowns total at least 2,446,344 motor cars.

In particular, biometric systems have been highlighted as an important tool for early detection, patient screening and public safety tracking in the attempt to contain the spread of COVID-19; however, demand in the automobile sector has been drastically reduced due to low automotive production and supply chain disruptions.

Voice recognition and natural language processing technologies powered by artificial intelligence are used in conjunction with microphones to provide voice commands, voice assistants and real-time translation services.

Precise Biometrics and Infineon are the latest technology companies to perceive market opportunities in biometric applications for the car industry. At CES 2022, a number of companies unveiled new biometrics-based solutions for vehicle applications, including Gentex displaying a driver-monitoring camera, Mindtronic demonstrating a novel artificial intelligence (AI)-based biometric-sensing technology and Mercedes-Benz revealing additional information about the infotainment capabilities of its VISION EQXX prototype.

Russia- Ukraine War Impact

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has had an influence on several sectors, including the car industry. Due to potential risks such as theft, sabotage and espionage, the conflict created a threat to the security and safety of vehicles and increased demand for security technology in Ukraine and other impacted countries.

Russian authorities have long exploited biometric data for facial recognition powered by artificial intelligence to monitor and imprison peaceful protestors and other dissidents. With the full-fledged invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, facial recognition software became one of the government's methods in suppressing anti-war rallies.

Many automakers have either ceased exports to Russia or closed their operations there, which might have long-term consequences for the market as a whole, particularly for European brands. Hyundai and Toyota, two big Japanese manufacturers in Russia that produce 80,000 automobiles each year, have announced that they will close their operations in 2022.

Both Ford and Volkswagen have discontinued production of certain components from their respective lineups. In recent years, Ford has significantly reduced its operations in Russia, focusing only on commercial van production and Russian sales through a minority participation in the Sollers Ford joint venture. Ford notified the other party in its joint venture that it will suspend operations in Russia immediately until further notice.
