Healthcare Biometrics Market by Technology (Single-factor (Fingerprint, Face, Iris, Palm, Behavioral (Signature, Voice)), Multifactor, Multimodal), Application (Workforce Management), End User (Hospitals, Healthcare Institutions) - Global Forecast to 2021

The healthcare biometrics market is projected to reach USD 2,848.3 million by 2021 from USD 1,182.6 million by 2016, at a CAGR of 19.2% during the forecast period. The growth of this market is majorly driven by government initiatives to support the implementation of biometrics in healthcare facilities and increasing healthcare fraud & medical identity theft. On the other hand, the high cost of biometric devices and issues related to the use of biometric technologies are the major factors limiting the growth of the market.

North America commanded the largest share of the global healthcare biometrics market in 2015 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 20.2% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to increasing government initiatives to ensure data protection and the security of healthcare facilities and presence of large number of prominent players. Owing to this, biometric technologies are increasingly being adopted to comply with stringent laws such as HIPAA and HITECH.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was passed as a federal law in the U.S. to safeguard the confidentiality of Electronic Protected Health Information (EPHI) of patients. Under this law, covered entities such as healthcare clearing houses, health plans, and healthcare providers, who transmit EPHI as a part of their business, are obligated to employ reasonable and appropriate levels of security to control access to EPHI. Additionally, healthcare organizations that violate any HIPAA regulations face significant financial penalties. This changing regulatory scenario in the North American region has resulted in an upsurge in the demand for efficient security measures in order to comply with these norms.
