Automated Border Control (ABC) eGate Deployments
Automated Border Control (ABC) eGate Deployment List
Critical Data on Current Deployments by Airport, Seaport, and Land Border
Check out Acuity’s “ABC eGate Deployment List”. This list -- presented in spreadsheet format -- provides details for each known eGate deployment including the number of eGates, locations, installation date, vendors, what type of biometrics are used, what kind of token --if any -- is used, who qualifies, is registration required, etc., as well as vendor market share information.
According to Acuity’s December 2014 count, there are currently 1644 operational ABC eGates worldwide. Nearly 50% of the total numer of eGates deployed at all airports, seaports and land borders are in Asia. However, Europe leads in airport deployments with nearly 40% of global units.
Acuity expects ABC eGate numbers to continue to grow as they move from pilot and intial deployment phases to full scale roll out as is occurring in the United Kingdom and Germany. While eGates will increasingly be used at land borders and seaports, today these border control points represent just 4.7% and 22% respectively, of all eGate units deployed.
