Europe is a leading e-passport market as the region deploys e-passports on a larger scale. The rising acceptance of e-passport in countries like the United Kingdom is expected to drive the industry in the coming years. Recently, the United Kingdom enabled visitors from countries like Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Canada, and the United States to use the e-passport gates for swifter entry into the country. The e-passport market in Europe is expected to be aided by the rising adoption of multimodal biometric identification. The use of multiple biometric identifiers, including fingerprints, iris, and face, to confirm authentication is called multimodal biometric identification. As a result, multimodal biometrics can provide enhanced security layers and help to overcome the error rates of normal biometrics.

Due to the technological advancements taking place in biometrics, the segment is growing at a faster rate as compared to radio frequency identification. Radio frequency identification, however, is still expected to grow at a positive rate in the coming years with the adoption of e-passport by many emerging markets. Leisure travel is one of the leading application sector for e-passport.

The e-passport market is being significantly driven by the rising urbanisation and globalisation across all the major regions. The growing urbanisation and globalisation have led to an increased number of passengers travelling by air, especially in developing countries like India, China, and Indonesia. The Asia Pacific region is likely to emerge as one of the leading s by the end of 2026. This rise in the number of passengers has significantly aided the e-passport market demand. Multiple countries are planning to introduce e-passport smart gates at airports, which can simplify the identification of the passengers and, thus, the immigration process. With e-passports expected to be introduced in countries like Bangladesh and India, the industry is expected to be further propelled forward in the Asia Pacific region.


Properties and Applications

The e-passport features an electronic chip, which includes the same information that is written on the passport data page: the name of the applicant, the date of birth, and other biographical information. The e-passport also includes a biometric identifier.

Market Analysis

The global e-passport market is being driven by the rising identity thefts and frauds. The rising demand for increased security is driving the demand for e-passport further. The rising cases of visa and passport frauds is another factor, which is driving the demand for e-passports. These e-passports will eventually help in reducing the transborder crimes and illegal immigration. Illegal immigration increases the threat to the security of the nation and the citizens; thus, the security at the border needs to be tightened. The e-passports will help ease the identification process and lower the fraud rates.

Long hours of waiting at the security check point has led to an increased need of e-passports. Thus, the demand for e-passports is also being aided by the need for faster and easier security checks at the airports. The demand for e-passports is also being supported by its cost-effectiveness, as they would be cheaper alternative to the printed passports and any changes can be made easily. These are also the preferred alternatives over the regular passports because they would not get old and cannot be lost or spoiled. The renewal process of these e-passports would also be much easier than the regular passports, making them a preferred alternative among the prospective consumers.

The advanced and developed infrastructure of the airports also demand a better and advance security check up system, which is expected to drive the industry growth of e-passports in the coming years. The growing air traffic is another factor driving the demand growth forward.
