According to “Prijo Samuel, Senior Research Analyst, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch,” Biometric access control systems is anticipated to be one of the fastest growing segments in Saudi Arabia’s access control market, with fingerprint biometric systems contributing majority of revenue in the biometrics market.
“Demand for biometric access control systems is growing across sectors such as commercial offices, banking, retail, healthcare, hospitality and education as these offer high level of security over card reader systems,” Samuel further added.
According to “Ravi Bhandari, Research Associate, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch,” In the Saudi Arabia Access Control Market, card reader accounted for major revenue share in 2014, followed by biometric and others. However, card reader access control systems are expected to lose their market share by 2021 due to increasing adoption and declining prices of biometric access control systems.
High cost of biometric systems has restricted the expected growth of this segment over the years. However, with improved technology and adoption, the market is expected to grow at significant pace over the coming years, Ravi concluded.
