     Key Highlights

  1. More than 40 vendors shipped Biometric devices
  2. Top 3 players captured around 62% share of the market
  3. In the Multi-Modal segment, Time & Attendance systems captured major share of the market

India Biometrics Market witnessed a marginal increase in demand for the Single-Modal Biometric devices. However, the demand for Fingerprint Biometric readers registered a consistent increase over the past few quarters. At present, the usage of Biometric systems is restricted to only few sectors however, their demand is likely to increase across many more verticals such as Airlines, Banking and Financial Services, Travel and Transport, Government, Healthcare, Consumer Electronics and Retail over the coming quarters.

The Indian companies are expanding their Biometric product portfolio as well as players are developing new Biometric devices. For instance, the recent integration of 3M Cogent’s MiY Biometric access control readers with Schneider Electric’s Andover Continuum in March, 2014 will enhance the Biometric access control product offerings.

Increasing use of Biometric data by the Government of India will further enhance the adoption of Biometric devices across the private sector. India Biometric Market is expected to witness promising growth in the authentication and advanced security systems. Biometric authentication has to be synchronized with the existing security systems in India which will help organizations to enhance security systems with higher efficiency and low cost. Further, apart from synchronization OEM also need to focus on strengthening the individual privacy in Multi-Modal Biometric devices.

The demand for Biometric devices is further expected to accelerate with the introduction of Biometric authentication systems in government pilot schemes such as Biometric cards in National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA). Additionally, Bank of Punjab has launched a new program to execute the auto disbursement subsidy through Biometric Cards.

6Wresearch released its annual report on India 3D Printer Market titled “of India 3D Printer Market, By Application, Technology, & End Use: 2014 – 2019”


3D printer rides on the wave of technology innovation in additive manufacturing. The market has made significant strides in the developed countries like the U.S. and is expected to witness tremendous growth in the near future due to expiry of patents, low cost of production, increasing awareness & penetration, growth of 3D scanners and advancement of material research. 

Presently, India 3D printer market is at nascent stage but holds tremendous potential for the manufacturers, local assemblers and distributors due to increasing use of rapid prototyping and 3D modeling across various industry sectors. Adding to the above factors, the location of research and development bases of various industrial and engineering companies fuels the existing growth of 3D printer market in India. 

However the opportunity doesn’t come without its cost. India, being price sensitive nation, is at evolving stage and yet to see the rapid adoption rate. Indian consumers follow the conventional approach where the modeling is still done through CNC machines which costs less than 3D printer in India thus raises reluctance among the players to go for 3D machines. For the market to see increasing penetration, it requires major transformation such as easier design capabilities, compatibility for mass production and manufacturing of large format objects.

Presently, the market of 3D printers can be segmented by various applications. Led by electronics vertical (volume share of 24.1%), the market is closely followed by automotive (21.2%). Others include medical (15.0%), industrial (13.8%), aerospace (10.8%), architectural (5.2%), and educational (3.0%). The market of 3D printers is expected to reach $46mn by the year 2019.

3D printer market offers tremendous potential in the commercial segment such as healthcare sector, architecture, educational, art & craft. Other niche applications include special purpose applications, use in organ replacement, extent of customization, animation & gaming fashion & apparels customized footwear designs, interior decoration, furniture modeling, educational models, chocolate and drug printing.

Globally established players, such as Stratasys and Optomec, are gradually making their footprints in India through partnerships and alliances with India based technology firms. Other major global players in 3D printing market include Fabbster, 3D Systems, Leapfrog and Flashforge.

Major players active in India 3D printing market (including manufacturers and distributors) space are Altem Technologies, Imaginarium, Brahma 3, KCbots, and JGroup Robotics. 

Globally established companies such as Stratasys and Optomec have partnered with Indian based technology companies for increasing their customer base. Other established global players in 3D printing industry include EOS GmbH, Ultimaker, Object, 3Digiprints, Arcam AB, Exone, and Voxeljet.

Major players active in India 3D printing market space are namely Altem Technologies, Cycloid, DigiTech Systems, Imaginarium, Brahma 3, KCbots, and J Group Robotics.

Mandatory Government Initiatives Fuelling the Growth of Saudi Arabia’s Biometrics Market-6Wresearch


Middle East region is emerging as a key growing region in global biometrics market, where countries such as UAE, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are exhibiting tremendous growth in overall biometrics market. Amongst all Middle East countries, Saudi Arabia is one of the fastest growing biometrics markets. The market for biometrics in Saudi Arabia is incrementing on the back of increasing IT spending, growth registered in biometric based access control systems, and increasing adoption of biometrics technologies across industry verticals.

According to 6Wresearch, Saudi Arabia’s biometrics market is projected to reach $1.5 billion by 2019. Fingerprint recognition technology occupies lion’s share in the overall market due to its ease of usage, cost efficiency and higher return on investments. Though, fingerprint technology market is anticipated to remain dominant during 2014-19, but higher growth rates are expected from other biometrics technologies such as face and IRIS recognition.

Increasing government initiatives and mandatory policies have contributed for the growth of biometrics technologies in the country. For instance, government has mandated biometrics enabled visas for all the tourists visiting in the country, which is spurring the demand for biometrics technologies.

In Saudi Arabia’s biometrics market, government, travel and transportation segment has generated majority of the market revenues. Growth of e-Visas and passports are expected to boost the biometrics market over the next five years. e-Visas based on face and fingerprint biometrics would be issued to various applicants. Additionally, General Directorate of Passports has mandated fingerprinting for all the expatriate women residing in the country, thereby further fuelling the growth of biometrics market in Saudi Arabia.

In the forecast period, penetration of biometrics technologies is expected to gain momentum in other verticals such as Banking & Finance, Retail, Hospitality and Oil & Gas, which would bolster the demand for various biometrics systems in the country.
