Global Automated Border Control Market is Growing at a Significant Rate in the Forecast Period 2019-2026



The automated border control system played a crucial role by providing immigration control systems in airports sea ports and land ports. It uses latest technologies and advanced software such as E-gate, kiosk and others for facial recognition, Iris recognition and fingertip recognition. In 2016, Paris airport implemented 87automated border control gates for entry/exit of passengers in airports, which is safer, secure passage from immigration and increased real time detection for frauds cases.

The Acuity market intelligence is working on the project name as total addressable market where maximum utilization automated border control system where 8,759 numbers of e-gates are installed for controlling secured passenger flow and safety.

Gemalto launched a slash queues automated border control system that exhibits with E-gates and kiosk software which is more speed, convenience, cost-efficiency and security concern. It is used for door opening with seamless passenger processing and maximum applicable for single person detection system that identifies passenger substitution, piggyback and tailgating at airports.

Nowadays government agencies are adopting automated border control system that solved out the problem faced in the cargo volume and numbers of people shifting across the border. It offers safe guards to the national interest. In the term of maximum growth of cargo volume and numbers of people shifting across the border that offered safeguard to the national interests.

The growth of automated border control system software in the global arena has been shifted in the past few years, due to rapid demand for border control in different airports. It is used for detecting passengers flow and reduces processing time in the spacious modern area.

The AVATAR (Automated Virtual Agent for Truth Assessments in Real-Time) which is embedded with latest technology based artificial intelligence and non-invasive sensors is used for detection of deception, visa processing and other processing services.

In 2018, Luxemberg airport successfully inaugurated the automated border control gates that delivered service to the passengers while maintaining the border safely, e-passports management, gate design, PKD certificate exchange, interoperability and human interface while passengers travelling to Non-Schengen and arriving from non- Schengen countries.

In 2016, Vision- box installed rollout of automated border control e-gates at Australian international airports that boost the increasing traveller volumes and documentary security features with photo/data integrity.

In 2015, IDEMIA and Morpho partnership with eIMASS, that offered biometrics system and data analytics technologies that reducing waiting times at checkpoints and improving travel experience at five major airports at UAE.


It has been observed that the automated border control system is increasing gradually by government agencies which provide safety, security and privacy at different airports, sea ports and land ports. The adoption of automatic border control system offers security solutions in the form of biometric-based and e-Passports with implementation of IoT technology and E-gates at border entry points & check points.

For instance, UK Border Agency (UBA) launched an investigation procedure at Manchester airport which detect the passenger pass through facial recognition and iris recognition with E-gates software solutions.

ARINC recently developed automated border management system (ABMS) that enabled border agencies to provide security, flow of passenger, passenger name record (PNR), advanced passenger information (API) at border check points and airports.

In Australia, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection offers automated processing solution that supports seamless traveller plan with the implementation of biometric identification. This implementation has ensured complete protection of Australian networks from huge cyber threats.



Not only automated border control software such as E-gates and kiosk comprises of various advantages but also has certain limitations. High cost invested for security function in recent infrastructure projects is impeding the market growth. Automated border control software is mostly used for verification of individuals, decreased passenger processing time, border security and others. In 2015, Fiji government approved US$ 167.50 million for the Transport Infrastructure Investment Project, which offered automated border control system and multi-criteria analysis.

Most of the government and private organization invested lots of capital to bring out the high precise software such as SITA, e-gates and kiosks which is capable in providing passenger experience functionality real time approach, increased trans-border intelligence and information sharing. This has further increased the check-in processing, thereby protecting the passenger’s identity.



Although the innovation cost is more, still many of the software companies are still innovating and developing equipment in the field of technology based automated border control system software. The increasing demand of technology based IoT is rapidly catching up worldwide in the field of airports, sea ports and land ports and others. The IoT technology used to provide flexibility in passenger flow management and process passengers.

Carrasco International Airport launched a new technology with Vision box i-match eGates software that improved security and facial recognition at airport checkpoints that reduces waiting time, reduction of transaction time of person in migratory procedures.

In Europe most of the passengers using electronic passports which exhibits with self-service immigration control system that boost the departure and arrival of several Italian airports. In Italy, major airports are using fingerprints identification security for passenger with extra layer of security.

In South America, Buenos Aires international airport launched a new technology based E-gates with biometrics technology that used to captured facial and fingerprint. It is also used for providing high transition security at ports entry and exits



The demand for automated border control software in commercial environments over the past several years has been driven by the several users connecting to the electronic service provider networks. The growing processing time leads to congestion at airports and customers that further decreases the verification of individuals. Airports are the largest end user of E-gates and kiosks in the field of passenger processing such as intelligent sensor technology, comprehensive optical document checking, and higher possibility of error tolerance and reduced airport queues.

Collins Aerospaces’ ARINC Automated Passport Control (APC) kiosks delivered a proficient way that improved the passenger flow at United States immigration and custom checkpoints. It also enhances security by enabling CBP officers to focus on verification, questioning and admissibility.

In 2014, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport launched CBP automated passport control kiosk that decreased the 20-40% of wait times at airports. It offers fully hosted kiosks that automated the border inspection process.

In 2016, Oakland International Airport upgraded its new BorderXpress Automated Passport Control (APC) kiosks that improve efficiently with customs entry process, cost to the passenger and requiring no preregistration.
