The global biometric market in workforce management is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20% between 2015 and 2019 due to the growing need to address issues of buddy punching, time theft, data theft, and identity theft issues.
APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period with several enterprises in countries like India and China expected to implement biometric time and attendance solutions to mitigate time fraud and employee attendance issues.
Fingerprint identification accounts for 63% of the total workforce management market share and is expected to continue to sustain growth during the forecast period.
“Construction sites are implementing biometrics workforce management systems to provide authorized access, owing to increasing security dimensions at construction sites,” says Amrita Chaudury, Lead Analyst, ICT, Technavio Research. “To overcome thefts of tools and equipment from construction sites, the companies are using biometrics identification and monitoring systems at these sites. Moreover, biometric installations also enable monitoring of real-time performance of labor and assessment of productivity.”
Companies mentioned in the report include BioEnable, 3M, M2SYS Technology, Safran and Suprema.
