Category : Semiconductor and Electronics | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC161

Access control and authentication are the numerous measures, which can be either electronic or physical, designed for monitoring of objects and people, and controlling access to and precluding intrusion of any information or property. The primary objective of access control and authentication is to restrict physical access of any unauthorized person in controlled facility. These systems are the security devices that control the access of resources in the operating system. Also, access control and authentication systems are the significant tools used for investigating or preventing crimes which may take place in public places such as multiplexes, shopping malls, airports, casinos, banks, ATMs and other such places. Security requires cost expenditure and has some drawbacks that restrict it from eliminating the risks entirely.
Increasing incidences of terrorism, and safety & security concerns are the major factors influencing the growth of access control and authentication systems market, globally. Also, with the advancement of infrastructure developments, the business organizations are extensively adopting the access control and authentication systems. Increased criminal activities is also boosting the market for access control and authentication systems and making the market complicated and sophisticated. A few other factors bolstering the market include increasing trend of biometric authentication procedures in mobile devices. Fingerprint recognition is used as a feature for authentication in high-end mobile phones and is soon expected to be added as a feature in mid-range devices too. With the growing smartphone usage day-by-day, these devices have become crucial for saving important information. Thus, the concern of smartphone users towards unauthorized access to their mobile devices is driving the market for access control and authentication. The rising concerns regarding illegal immigration and the subsequent risk of document counterfeiting have also increased the demand for document readers. Additionally, the rising threat of terrorism is another factor bolstering the market growth.
In the past few years, the use of access control and authentication systems has increased in different applications ranging from defense to commercial sectors. High growth is witnessed in hospital, banking, retail and IT sector thereby, increasing the demand for access control and authentication systems. However, factors such as high costs, false alarms and lack of awareness among people particularly, in Asian countries are few factors hampering the market growth. Although, with the advancement in technology, the costs of these systems is anticipated to decrease which may result in rising adoption of these devices in APAC region.
