Global Automated Border Control Market Overview
Automated border control systems are meant for automated immigration control that consolidates the latest technologies of e-gate hardware and advanced software such as document scanners and facial recognition. It facilitates fast and secure service for airports and border authorities and a user-friendly experience for travellers. World demand for automated border control (ABC) is projected to grow with a combination of factors, including a rising focus on homeland security due to increased terrorism, a rise in the number of travellers, improving border crossing time, rise in awareness about the security concern of the nation, growing demand for travellers convenience, and need for automation across the ports. An increased number of travellers makes it difficult for the countries to keep track and maintain the security process. Moreover, security and speed, cost-efficiency, and convenience have long represented conflicting goals for border control authorities. Departing, arriving, or in transit, travellers are becoming more demanding. Comfort, speed, and intuitive technologies are all on their list of priorities. Automated border control is the best approach to these issues. A lucrative, user-friendly design of automated border control helps speed up lines and creates a seamless experience for traveling passengers.
According to Value Market Research, the global automated border control market size was valued at about USD 886.02 million in 2020 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of around 18 % during the forecast period 2021 to 2027.
Automated border control offers reduce traveller process time and queue time, make effective use of floor space, release pressure for immigration authorities, reduce budget cost, results in fewer flight delays, and enable document and biometric verification. Advancements in infrastructure in developing countries, growth in domestic and international airports, and a rise in corporate travellers are accelerating demand for more ABCs. However, the lack of standardization and higher spending required for installing the systems hamper the growth of the automated border control market.
The global automated border control market is consolidated.

In this research report, the automated border control market is segmented by type, component, application, and region.
Analysis, By Type
By type, the global automated border control market is divided into ABC kiosks and ABC e-gates. In the gate and kiosk configuration, a passenger or traveller approaches a kiosk for a finger, facial, and passport scan. They further proceed to a set of doors and pass over using their fingerprint. The E-gate segment held the highest share in the global automated border control market. E-gate sums up as high cost than ABC kiosk. E-gate segment growth can be attributed to the increasing need for automation and increasing passenger’s traffic.
Analysis, By Component
By component, the global automated border control market is divided into hardware, software, and services. The hardware segment dominated the global market and will continue to remain leading by the end of the forecast. Hardware is the most costly and fundamental need for the entire automated border control system, thus accounting for high revenue. The software segment is another lucrative component segment of the automated border control market. Evolving demand for security, speed, cost-efficiency, and convenience encourages demand for software. In addition, key participants are launching new software to encompass new security requirements across end-use.
Analysis, By Application
By application area, the global automated border control market is segmented into airports, seaports, and land ports. The airport segment occupied the majority share in the global market. Airport security plays a crucial role in preventing airports from threats such as terrorists, thieves, and smugglers. Growing air travel, increasing security measures, stringent guideline implementation, and minimal inconvenience are factors estimated to amplify airport segment growth. Airports depend on automated border control to process a high volume of passengers and reduce slow-downs, leading to travel delays.
Analysis, By Region
Based on region, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
