HTF report forecasts market for biometrics in connected cars
Iris biometrics will be used by a smaller share of the connected car market as the market evolves, falling from more than 20 percent in 2017 and 2018 to below 15 percent by 2022, according to new research from HTF Market Intelligence.
“Biometrics for the Connected Car – Automotive Biometrics Market Analysis & forecasts 2018-2023” is the first in a series of reports on the IoT market, and examines the relative popularity of iris, face, fingerprint, heart (ECG), brain (EEG), and other biometrics. Face, fingerprint, ECG, and the ‘others’ category are expected to be found in as many or more cars as iris identification by 2022.
The report also provides coverage of key players identified in the market, including Eyelock, Delta ID, Fotonation, Princeton Identity, KeyLemon, Fingerprint Cards, Goodix, Precise Biometrics, Qualcomm, Silead, Sonavation, Synaptics, VKANSEE, Nymi, B-Secur, Nuance Communications, Sensory and VoiceVault.
The report also considers both the private and commercial car markets, and breaks down expected market performance by geographical region.
The automotive market for biometrics appears to be taking off, as auto makers have become concerned that they are losing control of the dashboard, according to Synaptics VP of Marketing Godfrey Cheng, and numerous biometrics and related applications were demonstrated this year at CES. Hyundai is planning to sell a vehicle with fingerprint unlocking in China in 2019.
