An e-passport is an electronic chip printed on the page of a passport that stores several forms of information such as the holder's name, date of birth, and other character information. Furthermore, this technology keeps passenger information on a smart chip with a unique identifying number and digital signature. Furthermore, several European nations are embracing e-passports since they are safer than traditional paper passports and lower the possibility of data duplication and tampering.

An e-passport is a chip-enabled passport that includes a biometric identity card, increasing the transparency and security of travel papers. However, in terms of application, verification, and information, it is identical to a conventional passport. The distinctive benefits of an e-passport are that travelers will not have to wait in line for extended periods of time because it may be scanned in a matter of seconds. It also has an individual biometric record. As a result, it will deter fraudsters from stealing data and creating duplicate passports. Furthermore, no one has the ability to erase data from it.

TCS is expected to launch chip-based e-passports before the end of the year 2022. The new passports will be chip-based. Those now in use will be given a new chip when their contracts expire.

The new coronavirus epidemic has wreaked havoc on worldwide markets and is causing more problems. The rapid lockdown established at both regional and worldwide places was concerning since humans were holding the infection and becoming a focus of transmission. During this time period, global demand for e-passports and e-visas increased. People wanted to leave their current location and return to their homes to be with their relatives during such tragic and urgent moments. The anxiety of transferring the infection and entering the phase of community spread of the virus, on the other hand, was considerably greater and took a toll in the globally functional scenario. As a result, after the spread was under control and there were fewer victims and more treatment and immunization available, worldwide governments needed to open their doors to international travel.


RFID technology will dominate the global demand for ePassports, with growth projected between 2023 and 2030. However, the biometrics category is expected to expand the fastest, with a growing CAGR between 2023 and 2030. Biometrics is becoming an essential element in ePassports as it increases security. It also included contactless smart card technology, an integrated Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip, additional security measures, and other features. During the projected period, the dependability of such features generates new development prospects for the ePassport market.

In 2028, the leisure travel application category is predicted to dominate the worldwide ePassports market. Growing discretionary money and comparatively easy cross-border travel regulations have raised the demand for ePassports in recent years. The growing threat of terrorism and other criminal activity is raising security concerns. The biometric information of the passport bearer is stored in the ePassport. As a result, it is a dependable and safer solution in terms of security. As a result, rising security concerns may have a substantial influence on the worldwide ePassport market's growth.

ePassports is divided into four security categories: basic access control, password-authenticated connection establishment, supplemental access control, and extended access control. From 2023 to 2030, the password-authenticated connection establishment (PACE) security segment is expected to grow. With the increased need for enhanced data security and data encryption, the majority of ePassports now include expanded access control. ePassports were based on BAC (Minimal Access Control) and were chip-based with basic information; however, as technology advances, ePassports with biometric information and sophisticated SAC and PACE technologies are being employed.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation
