Healthcare Biometrics Market Size and Growth Rate From 2023 to 2032

Market Overview

The healthcare biometrics market provides patient identification and staff authentication solutions. Healthcare biometrics are used in hospitals and other healthcare centers to detect accurate patient health conditions or monitor patients. In the medical field, the important objective beyond healthcare biometrics is to control the continuous fraud taking place in the medical field worldwide.

The adoption of advanced technologies helps to update the security hurdles that are placed in place to protect directory losses and patient information. The number of frauds related to patient data, records, and history is increasing day by day, and this needs to be stopped by implementing advanced technologies. Healthcare organizations and research medical centers are adopting modern technologies to increase the security levels of the system. These drivers will enhance the profit rates of the market size.

Regional Snapshot

North America dominated the healthcare biometrics market in 2023. Due to the increased number of frauds and crimes that happen in the healthcare system, North America is holding the largest share. The rise in the number of threat data and fraud cases has raised the demand for modern technology in the system, which will help to secure the data and patient records collected by these advanced systems and kept secure for future use to prevent any unprincipled cracks in the system.

  • In March 2024, In North America, Princeton Identity launched multimodal edge healthcare biometrics for the market with potential devices in point-of-sale implementations, attendance management, time, and access control.

At New York University, biometric verification is often used to streamline the patient registration procedure by improving patient intake and decreasing paperwork to ensure secure, accurate healthcare service delivery. Especially in Elmhurst Hospital, the Mount Sinai healthcare system, Langone Health of New York Health, and many other hospitals have integrated biometric verification technologies into their operational protocols. These technologies consist of retina scans for body temperature while scanning, facial recognition for mobile apps utilizing face ID, and fingerprint recognition for patient verification.

Asia Pacific is estimated to grow fastest in the forecast period. Due to the increasing government support for medical healthcare, Asia Pacific is expected to show the largest growth. The rising adoption of advanced technologies in the medical healthcare sector to obtain the confidence of the customers and obtain a better profit return has helped to grow the healthcare biometrics market.

  • In Delhi, SmartTech Asia 2024 brought together all the smart technology providers from segments like healthcare biometrics and e-security to show advanced technologies, which are now significantly used by all sectors, including manufacturing, authentication, and digital payment.

Market Dynamics


Execution of government initiatives

In recent years, the risk of data breaches in the healthcare sector has increased due to the rapid digitization of healthcare data. Governments in various regions have implemented constitutions to address patient information-related security concerns. Security is needed not only for patient safety but also to protect against nationwide threats that information leaks can pose. Hence, governments from all over the world take the initiative, invest in innovation, and develop strategies for data protection.

  • In March 2024 in Lahore, the Punjab Health Division announced plans to introduce a healthcare biometric system in government hospitals over Punjab to ensure doctors' and staff’s attendance.

Rising need for security due to increasing incidents of crimes

Initially, the use of healthcare biometric technology was to secure and identify a criminal’s identity. Biometric technology was mostly used to verify criminals with the help of biometric scanning biometric characteristics such as vein patterns, hand geometry, DNA, signature, fingerprint, voice, and iris. The major motive for installing biometric systems is to decrease terrorist attacks and crimes. As of now, millions of criminal cases have been solved with the help of healthcare biometric technology. Biometric technology is also used in surveillance.

A face identification system is installed in CCTV cameras, which capture and store individuals' facial information. This information helps to verify and recognize the criminals in any terrorist and crime activity. Increasing technology-based CCTV cameras in leading regions such as Japan, India, and China are boosting the healthcare biometrics market growth in the forecast period.


High cost of biometric devices

In the medical field, healthcare biometric devices are essential to detect and record patients' health. Additionally, due to the increased number of fraud threats and crimes, the demand for biometric devices is growing rapidly. But sometimes healthcare centers can't afford biometric devices due to the high cost of healthcare biometric devices. Due to the lack of adoption of healthcare biometric devices, security centers can't detect crimes and fraud threats. This factor is enough to reduce the growth of the healthcare biometrics market.


Contactless healthcare authentication

Contactless healthcare authentication technologies include voice recognition, facial recognition, and iris recognition. This contactless healthcare biometric device takes patients' voice commands and face detection very quickly and reduces excessive time to operate this device.

Contactless healthcare technology offers several advantages, such as storing health check data, social distancing, temperature scanning, and speed and efficiency. In addition, this contactless healthcare device also identifies the users while wearing a face mask. These major opportunities can drive the healthcare biometrics market growth in the coming years.

Recent Developments

  • In March 2024, HID launched a facial identification biometric kiosk and a self-service patient engagement to secure healthcare operations. HID announced these services in collaboration with patient care suppliers and healthcare biometric kiosk producers CTS.
  • In March 2022, BioIntelliSense introduced its medical-based BioButton Rechargeable wearable device. The new Biobutton rechargeable appliance permits continuous multi-parameter monitoring of a wide range of more than 20 vital signs and physiological healthcare biometrics for up to 30 days (about four and a half weeks) on a single charge, which is based on configuration.
  • In February 2024, the company VerifiNow launches the patient biometric identity verification solution. This innovation is for telehealth providers. PatientVerifi is specially made to fulfill the need to identify patient verification in virtual healthcare.
  • In January 2024, in Kenya, the Health Cabinet Secretary Susan Nakhumicha announced extensive fraud with the help of the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) scheme. This scheme is executed partly using healthcare biometrics.
