How did COVID-19 Impact Contactless Biometrics Technology Market?

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, governments of several states have imposed lockdowns with the safety measures like social distancing and decentralization, which have generated the need for contactless biometric technology. This solution helps  verify individual identity with  a secure authentication process. In addition, the increasing number of cyber-attacks and data breaches in financial institutions have encouraged them to adopt biometric solutions to prevent such activities.

Post-pandemic, companies are focusing on developing new solutions for contactless biometric machines,  giving momentum to market growth. For instance, in June 2022, AI Innovator Moqi launched contactless biometric scanners in order to meet the demand for post-pandemic identity solutions. This solution can capture 10 HD fingerprints within 120 seconds, and scanning is unaffected by wet, dry, or rough fingers, which was difficult for convectional contact-based scanners.
