Executive Summary

Biometric authentication is a process through which a user’s identity is verified with the involvement of their biological mark such as scanning or analysis of some body part. There are two types of biometric systems: Physiological and Behavioral. In physiological type various methods such as face scanning, fingerprint scanning, hand, iris and DNA scanning are done. Whereas keystroke, signature and voice recognition are the categories which falls under behavioral biometrics.

Biometric authentication is applied for various purposes such as for attendance in offices, security systems, in criminalistics department of police, voting system, etc. All the biometric processes are executed through three types of devices: fixed devices, discrete devices and integrated devices.

Mobile biometric authentication is that segment of biometric market where biometric authentication is accomplished via a mobile device such as smartphone, tablet and other biometric wearables devices. Many biometric modals such as voice recognition, fingerprint scanning, iris scan, etc. are applied in these devices. The end user of mobile biometric devices are generally categorized into enterprises and individual consumers. Mobile biometric authentication is laid with many advantages such as improved security, reduced operational cost, etc. Though, it carries few disadvantages as well like not 100% accuracy is confirmed, requires additional hardware's, etc.

The global mobile biometric authentication market is expected to increase at high growth rates during the forecasted period (2017-2021). The global titanium dioxide market is supported by various growth drivers, such as increasing smart devices with biometric technology, growing smartphone demand, increasing online transaction, etc. Yet, the market faces certain challenges, such as, lack of governing certification bodies, hacking of fingerprint, etc. Few new market trends are also provided such as, authentication of biometric in PC, 3D face ID in devices and voice recognition biometric technology in smartphones, etc.
