The global iris recognition market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Despite genetic similarities, irises of different individuals are structurally distinct and unique, which allows them to be used for recognition, identification and authentication purposes. Iris recognition, also known as iris scanning, is a method used for identifying individuals based on the unique pattern of their iris. The process utilizes visible and near-infrared light to capture a high-contrast image of the iris. The technology combines computer vision, pattern recognition, statistical inference and optics. This form of biometric system helps law enforcement officers to compare iris images of a suspect with an existing database. Also, several countries across the globe are implementing these systems in airports, points of entry or exit and other authoritative premises to reduce security breach incidences. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global iris recognition market to grow at a CAGR of 23% during 2021-2026.

Market Trends:

Over the past few years, there has been a rise in the number of crimes and the threat of terrorist attacks across the globe. These incidences have prompted government facilities to install high-tech biometric systems to improve security conditions and preventing fraudulent activities. This remains one of the primary factors that are driving the growth of the market.
Manufacturers are developing iris recognition technology so that it can be integrated with various devices such as smartphones, banking systems and ATMs. These innovations are attracting investors who are interested in conducting large-scale R&D for applying these designs in real-life applications which, in turn, is influencing the market growth positively.
Healthcare providers are making efforts to use iris-recognition for addressing patient identity challenges. The combination of iris biometric technology and healthcare-focused PTOYNet blockchain network will help in delivering improved administrative, financial and clinical efficiencies.
