Global Automated Fingerprint Identification System Market 2016-2020
Fingerprint biometric technology is used to identify individuals using their fingerprints, which are scanned and matched against a database. The matching is executed on the basis of features, such as the arches, whorls, and loops, of the fingerprints. Pattern-based algorithms are used to match a person's fingerprints against databases to provide access to secure premises. In the early 2000s, with advances in technology, an advanced fingerprint system known as AFIS was introduced. AFIS can electronically capture data and analyze and identify a fingerprint pattern among millions of patterns.
Automated fingerprint identification involves automatic matching of one or more unknown fingerprints against an existing database of fingerprints. AFIS is mainly used by law enforcement agencies for identifying criminals.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global AFIS market to grow at a CAGR of 12.47% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automated Fingerprint Identification System Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Automated Fingerprint Identification System Market: 3M Cogent Inc., M2SYS Technology, NEC Corp., and Safran Group.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AFIX Technologies, BioEnable, BioLink Solutions, Biometrics4all, Crossmatch, Dermalog Identification Systems, Futronic, Innovatrics, Papillon Systems, Sonda Technologies, Secure Outcomes, and Suprema.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The integration of AFIS technology for law enforcement in mobile devices is growing with the increased use of mobile devices across the globe in different sectors such as healthcare, government, enterprises, BFSI, and transportation. This integration enhances the computing power for quick and accurate detection of fingerprint patterns using different algorithms. Thus, mobile biometrics can be used to identify individuals in a number of locations such as booking stations, prisons, patrol vehicles, and battlefields.”
According to the report, cloud-based AFIS technology uses cloud services through a web-based user interface, which can be either a browser or mobile application. In such a scenario, the biometrics infrastructure is managed by the cloud service provider and is available on demand. Cloud-based AFIS infrastructure includes a server that consists of a biometric template database and all the processing data that is created during the individual's identification and verification.
Further, the report states that strong competition from inexpensive non-biometric technologies is a major challenge hindering the growth of the market.
