The global automated border control market size is expected to grow from USD 2.1 billion in 2023 to USD 3.9 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 13.3%. The key factors driving the automated border control market growth are the growing travel and tourism industry owing to the increase in international passenger traffic and rising security concerns across all modes of transport.
“ABC Kiosks segment to hold considerable growth rate from 2023-2028”
Automated border control (ABC) kiosks are self-service systems that scan passengers’ travel documents and answer their security-related queries, thus optimizing the recognition system’s performance at border crossing points (BCPs). The demand for ABC kiosks is rising rapidly as these systems provide ease in verifying travel documents and authenticating travelers’ identities across all modes of transport.
“Software segment holds the considerable share of automated border control during the forecast period”
Software in the automated border control system processes and analyses biometric data captured from travelers, such as facial images, fingerprints, or iris scans. It applies an algorithm to extract and compare unique biometric features, enabling identity verification and matching against databases of known individuals or watchlists. Based on the processed data and watchlist matching results, the software component enables real-time decision-making at the border. The demand for software components in the automated border control system is expected to increase owing to the growing need for more sophisticated identity verification and security measures.
“Airports segment holds the largest share of automated border control market in 2022”
The airports segment dominated the automated border control market in 2022 and is expected to remain the same during the forecast period. Implementing automated border control systems at airports helps the authorities streamline processes and minimize the need for manual intervention. This can result in optimizing staff allocation and potentially decrease the number of personnel required for traditional passport control. Additionally, the number of air travelers has been steadily increasing over the years, and this trend is expected to continue. Automated border control systems offer a scalable solution to handle the growing passenger volumes without compromising security or efficiency. All these factors are responsible for the segmental growth.
Asia Pacific is expected to capture the largest market growth rate during the forecast period
Asia Pacific is expected to hold the largest CAGR of the global automated border control market from 2023-2028. The automated border control market in APAC is gaining pace in the last few years. The major factor driving the growth of the automated border control market in APAC is the growing tourism industry. The rise in international travel, both for business and tourism purposes, has put pressure on border control authorities to process a large number of travelers efficiently while maintaining stringent security measures. Automated border control systems offer a solution to address this challenge. By implementing technologies such as biometric verification, document authentication, and self-service kiosks, these systems expedite the immigration process, reduce waiting times, and enhance overall border management efficiency. They provide a seamless and convenient experience for travelers while ensuring accurate identity verification and screening for security purposes.
