Passport readers are document identification devices utilizing technologies such as optical character recognition (OCR), radio-frequency identification (RFID), barcode among others for decoding the information on passports. Passport readers automate the process of manually checking and filling the information in the system. Presently social and environmental unrest across the world has resulted in increase in the number of migrants. For instance, United Nations (UN) states that the globally international migrants have increased at a faster rate than the world population to account for 3.7% of total world population in 2017. In addition, rise in migrant smuggling activities around the globe have posed imminent threat to countries, mandating them to protect themselves against these illegal activities which is giving rise to social disturbances and increasing the demand for passport reader. For instance, in 2018 a report by United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) states that about 2.5 million migrants were smuggled worldwide in 2016. Rise in smuggling of migrants has risen the number of passport forgeries. For instance, in 2016 as per BBC more than 1000 fake passports have been seized at UK borders. Manual inspection of passports at security check points pose limitations which have pushed the growth of passport reader market worldwide.

The growth in implementation of passport readers at border crossings, airports and harbors is estimated to be driven by adoption of advanced security check solutions by governments of multiple countries to overcome the threats from passport forgeries and other fraudulent practices promoting migrant smuggling. For instance, European Union has initiated a project, ‘Smart Borders’ in 2013 which aims to streamline the external border management. The European Commission is proposing Smart Border packages including Kiosk systems which features biometric scanners, passport readers and other technologies for effective border management. Also as per a recent news article published by The Washington Post, Kevin McAleenan, an officer from United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), during his visit to a humanitarian camp in Panama, proposed to provide passport readers to ease the border check process. Owing to these factors, harbors, airports and border control applications account for more than half of the global passport reader market over the forecast period.
