Biometric market has been growing as one of the fastest emerging markets for the past few years especially due to rising need for personal security concerns, and the advent of new technologies that offered numerous future growth opportunities. Recent developments, larger & wider scale adoption, significant capability & performance advancements, standards development, and consumer acceptance, indicate looming and substantial market expansion of the biometric industry.

Many governments across the world are adopting biometric technologies to strengthen national security and maintain individual identity. Besides, corporate security and identity theft are fueling growth in the global biometric market. According to our new research report “Global Biometric Forecast to 2012”, the global biometric market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 23% during 2011 - 2013. The report explains prevalent market trends and future scenario of the biometric market in different verticals, technologies, and regions, underlining the future potential areas and key issues crucial for the market development.

Among the technologies, fingerprint recognition is possibly the most widely used and familiar biometric technology. Further, biometrics is also becoming a common solution for remote transactions and e-commerce. Fingerprint is a very substantial reliable desktop solution, and it is expected that the desktop will become a driver for biometric revenue derived from transactional authentication and product sales.

The report has also found that, technologies, such as facial recognition, fingerprint, AFIS, and Iris are anticipated to account for around 84% of the global biometric market by 2013 end. This is possible due to the growing acceptance of these technologies in various civil and commercial applications including financial sector, security, POS (Point of Sale), ATMs, border security (passports and customer ID), etc.

Furthermore, financial services sector is set to emerge as one of the most exciting markets for biometrics vendors. Vendors need to adopt right pricing strategy and communicate the return on investments effectively to take advantage of the burgeoning opportunities for biometrics in the financial sector.

The report offers an extensive research on various biometric technologies, acknowledging some of their widely used applications and contextualizing the role of biometrics as an important part of security suite available to the government as well as the private sectors. It also discusses some of the countries undertaking major biometrics initiatives across the world.
