Global e-Passport Market 2017-2021

About e-Passport

E-passports are used to authenticate the identity of a traveler during international travels. This technology stores data about the traveler on a smart chip, which bears a unique identification number, and a digital signature. It is more secure than traditional paper technology as it cuts down the risk of data alteration and duplication. The data stored electronically on the chip is authenticated by public key infrastructure (PKI), which helps eliminate forgeries. Facial, fingerprint, and iris recognition are the major biometric modalities used in the technology.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global e-passport market to grow at a CAGR of 26.31% during the period 2017-2021.
