Global Automated Security E-gate Market 2017-2021

Global Automated Security E-gate Market 2017-2021

About Automated Security E-gate

Automated security e-gates use facial recognition and other associated technologies to verify the identity of the person passing through the gate. An automated security e-gate is an integrated security system. It performs electronic authentication of travel documents, establishes the identity of the person holding the documents, and determines the border-crossing eligibility based on certain pre-defined rules.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automated security e-gate market to grow at a CAGR of 8.70% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automated Security e-Gate Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automated security e-gate market: ARJO Systems, Gemalto, Josanti Infoimaging, and OT-Morpho

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: NEC, Rapiscan Systems, SITA, and VISION-BOX.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Boarding gate with explosive detection systems. Global air travel involves huge passenger traffic of different origins. Airports support numerous airline companies, with each company operating flights across multiple geographies. The highly diverse air travel scenario thus creates possibilities of a security breach. A major security concern at airports is the transportation of explosives. Security systems are being designed to identify such instances; especially those involving body-borne improvised explosive devices.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Developments in biometrics technology. Biometrics authentication has gained significance as an effective means of authentication, for security applications. Iris and fingerprint scanning are increasingly being adopted in border control, in addition to facial recognition. Advancements in biometrics are focused on mitigating errors in identification. For instance, finger vein technology, an advanced authentication method, uses the unique blood vessel pattern beneath a person's finger to identify the person. This is done by using an infrared sensor and a charge coupled device.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Susceptible to hacking. Automated e-gates use software to facilitate authentication. The gates in the process of authentication, generate huge amounts of sensitive passenger data. This poses a risk of e-gate systems being hacked. In 2014, a group of hackers was reported to have infiltrated airport security systems. The hackers called Tarh Andishan are based in Iran and are operational since 2012. They are backed by the Iranian government as part of the country's cyber warfare efforts. Tarh Andishan has around 20 members who use hacking techniques like SQL injection, automated worm-like propagation systems, and back-doors. They attack government and military systems, aerospace companies, and hospitals. This was part of an operation called operation cleaver.
