). As palm vein biometrics relies on scanning the vein pattern under the skin, it is considered to be a reliable and extremely secure biometric modality. Unlike fingerprint biometric technology which depends on the integrity of the skin on the fingertip for precise identification and can be negatively impacted by cuts, bruises, and dirt, the integrity of the skin is not a problem with palm vein biometrics.
New York, Dec. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Palm Vein Biometrics Market - Growth, Trends, Forecasts (2020 - 2025)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06000976/?utm_source=GNW
- Over the years, the requirement to control access to premises, and systems has grown. Currently, many organizations rely on passwords, or cards to confirm people’s identity for access. However, this traditional approach poses severe challenges. For instance, loss, or theft of cards causes security risks. With the correct combination of PIN and card, anyone could be granted access to restricted areas or data. Thus, increasing application of biometrics for security purpose is expected to positively impact the market growth.
- For instance, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited in India is using palm vein recognition technology to keep track of employees and provide authorized access to them. Companies such as Fujitsu, in 2018, announced that it will deploy its palm vein authentication technology to its employees in Japan. The palm vein authentication will replace password-based measures, and allow the employees to gain access to buildings and log in to their desktops with only their hand.
- With multiple options available for biometric identification, companies could choose to adopt multifactor authentication to reduce the probability of fraud even further. Such trends are also expected to influence market growth. For instance, Fujitsu has plans to combine its palm vein scanning technology with facial recognition in a new authentication concept for access control.
Key Market Trends
BFSI Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share
- With the increasing level of security breaches, need for highly secure verification and identification systems have increased in the BFSI sector. Various banks and financial institutions integrated biometrics technologies such as palm vein recognition technology with access control systems to provide customers with secure access. For instance, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, a commercial bank in Japan, implemented a palm vein biometric system to provide a secure and cost-effective solution to its customers.
- Apart from physical access control, palm vein biometrics is expected to gain traction for contactless payment authentication. For instance, in 2018, Japan’s AEON Credit Service and Fujitsu will begin a trial of a cardless retail payment system using biometric palm vein authentication technology at some convenience stores.
- Many BFSI organizations are adopting palm vein biometrics, which is fueling the market’s growth. For instance, Gesa Credit Union, a financial services institution is leveraging palm recognition technology in association with financial technology company Fiserv. Fiserv is a financial services technology solutions provider, that offers a DNA account processing platform and integrated services, including Verifast: Palm Authentication for biometric authentication.
- Many startups are also investing in product innovations. For instance, in June 2019, Redrock Biometrics, a vendor of palm-based biometrics for authentication and identification, announced the launch of its identification solution, PalmID-X at the exclusive invitation-only Finovate Spring 2019.
North America Expected to Hold Significant Market Share
- According to the Federal Trade Commission, identity thefts related to payment and banking sector are prominent in North America, which in turn, is set to boost the adoption of advanced authentication services such as biometrics. According to the Federal Trade Commission, in 2018, California experienced the maximum number of identity theft complaints. Around 73,668 cases of identity thefts were reported.
- The region is also witnessing a growing interest among organizations in adopting systems that use biometric characteristics to identify people. For instance, a New Jersey-based healthcare company, Atlantic Health System uses Patient Secure’s biometric palm vein scanning solution to speed up the patient intake and improve record accuracy. This technology helps in preventing individuals from using someone else’s medical data to receive treatment.
- Many BFSI organizations are adopting palm vein biometrics, which is fueling the market’s growth in the region. For instance, Gesa Credit Union, a financial services institution, headquartered in the United States, is leveraging palm recognition technology in association with financial technology company Fiserv. Fiserv is a financial services technology solutions provider, that offers a DNA account processing platform and integrated services, including Verifast: Palm Authentication for biometric authentication.
- Many startups are also investing in product innovations in the region. For instance, in June 2019, Redrock Biometrics (San Francisco), a vendor of palm-based biometrics for authentication and identification, announced the launch of their identification solution, PalmID-X at the exclusive invitation-only Finovate Spring 2019. The solution expands the application of biometric identification to a large group of people, creating a basis for seamless services and transactions without the physical tokens. Using a standard RGB camera and infrared camera, PalmID-X captures palm prints or subdermal veins to produce a highly unique palm signature.
The palm vein biometrics market is competitive and consists of several major players. Many companies are increasing their market presence by introducing new products, by expanding their operations or by entering into strategic mergers and acquisitions.
- November 2019 - Fujitsu launched sales of the FUJITSU Security Solution AuthConductor V2 which uses various authentication methods, including palm vein authentication, to deliver comprehensive biometric authentication support for customers. In addition to providing a unified palm vein authentication office environment, this product features facial authentication, fingerprint authentication and IC card authentication for PC logons, and is fully scalable to support use by anywhere from several people to organizations with tens of thousands of users. With the launch of this upgraded solution, Fujitsu enables customers to enjoy convenience with secure and flexible solutions for a diverse range of use cases and authentication scenarios.
- June 2019 - Redrock Biometrics launched its identification solution, PalmID-X. It expands the applicability of biometric identification to multiple people, creating a basis for seamless services and transactions without physical tokens. It captures palm prints and/or subdermal veins to create a unique palm signatures.
