The global gait biometrics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.98% during the period 2016-2020.

Gait analysis generates multiple variables such as movement angles, which can be used to compute factors that are not or cannot be measured directly through computer modeling of gait analysis. These models are used in the R&D process to facilitate a deeper understanding of the behavior of the musculoskeletal system.

Gait analyzers are generally huge and bulky and need a well-equipped room to analyze an individual. This had been a major challenge for vendors, as this limits the adoption of gait systems. Vendors such as Medical Motion have introduced portable gait biometric systems, which can be implemented even in a practice field. This has increased the acceptance of portable gait analyzers among athletes and trainers, as these are more user-friendly.

According to the report, the healthcare sector is a major adopter of gait biometric systems, which are mainly implemented to improve patient analysis and track their physical health conditions. Gait systems are used to support patients with orthopedic troubles as well. It can track and analyze a patient's movement and body posture. The technology is highly adopted in North America and Europe. As gait analyzers can enhance the functioning and improve applications in the healthcare sector, it will have a positive impact on the market.

Further, the report states that high cost of gait biometric systems hinders the market growth.
