Rapid Technological Developments in Biometric Authentication to Drive Growth

The false rejection rate (FRR) and false acceptance rate (FAR) of various biometric access control systems such as iris and fingerprint recognition have enhanced significantly since the past few years. The National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST) stated that facial recognition gained an FRR of 1.1% in the U.S. in 2019. The constant technological advancement to introduce novel biometric authentication features would spur the vehicle access control market growth in the near future. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has compelled manufacturers to focus more on reducing innovation funding and managing day-to-day cash flow. It has also disrupted the supply chain of numerous companies. This would hamper the demand for vehicle access control systems.
