The growing threat of national security due to rise in number of illegal migration, is one of the primary drivers aiding to the growth of the global military biometrics market. The increase in the number of illegal migration affects the growth in economy as the people residing illegally are not liable to pay any form of taxes to the government. This is one of the primary concerns for restricting illegal migrations. Furthermore, another issue that can be linked with illegal migration is the fear of terrorism. According to the U.S. department of defense, 30,000 illegal migrations were reported in 2015 which belonged from countries linked with terrorist activities. The use of biometric authentication helps in identifying individuals entering the country. Hence the demand for biometrics in defense applications is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.
The global market for military biometrics accounted for US$ 5,650.5 mn in 2016. The market is expected to grow steadily at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2017 to 2025, to reach US$ 10,620.6 mn.

North America to Continue Leading Global Military Biometrics Market
By geography, the global military biometrics market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Latin America. North America and Europe together held more than 55% of the global market in 2016 and expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. North America has been anticipated to be the largest market in global military biometrics market. The growing concern for illegal migration in the U.S. is expected to drive the demand for military biometrics in this region.
Asia Pacific held the second largest market for military biometrics. The region has also been analyzed to be the fastest growing owing to the presence of developing nations such as India and China who are increasingly adopting the biometric authentication in defense to upgrade their security measures.
Europe held the third largest market during the forecast period.

Middle East and Africa region is also expected to witness steady demand for military biometrics owing to the presence of countries such as Saudi Arabia and U.A.E. which invest significantly to upgrade their defense and security.
Facial and Iris Recognition to Witness Strong Demand
The global military biometrics market has been segmented by types in fingerprint recognition, facial recognition and iris recognition among others. The fingerprint recognition segment has been analyzed to be the largest market during the forecast period. The fingerprint recognition is most commonly used authentication system in most of the defense agencies across the globe. However, the accuracy of iris recognition is expected to drive the demand for this segment strongly in future. Furthermore, facial recognition is also witnessing steady growth due to their wide use in border security and surveillance.
