Global Biometrics Market in the Government Sector 2016-2020

About Biometrics

Biometrics involves the authentication of an individual by evaluating one or more unique biological traits. This authentication can be done through voice recognition, hand geometry analysis, DNA analysis, gait recognition, fingerprint identification, facial recognition, iris recognition, signature verification, and vein recognition. Biometric technologies are considered to be more reliable for authentication compared to physical devices and numeric codes. With advances in hardware, sensors, readers, pattern recognition, and signal and image processing technologies, a number of biometric technologies have been developed to deal with the identification of individuals.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global biometrics market in the government sector to grow at a CAGR of 11.9% during the period 2016-2020.

      Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Biometrics Market in Government Sector 2016-2020

      Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Biometrics Market in Government Sector: Cross Match Technologies, 3M Cogent, M2SYS Technology, NEC, and Safran.

      Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aware, Ayonix, BI² Technologies, BioEnable, BioLink Solutions, Cardzme, Cognitec Systems, FaceFirst, Fulcrum Biometrics, Iris ID, IRI TECH, M2SYS, Nuance Communications, SpeechPro, Suprema, and TENBIO.

      Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A noteworthy trend to watch for is the emergence of touchless sensing technology. Advances in technology led to the development of touchless sensing technology that generates 3D fingerprint scan to resolve the problems with the traditional fingerprint recognition technology. The 3D touchless fingerprint technology is interoperable with legacy devices to provide high-quality images. To make 3D fingerprint images interoperable with current AFIS systems, a simulated rolling procedure was introduced. The procedure unwraps 3D fingerprint images into 2D fingerprint images that are comparable with legacy rolled fingerprints. 3D fingerprint image provides a high-quality, large, and nail end to nail bed representation of the finger.”

      According to the report, a key growth driver for the biometrics market is the rising numbers of identity theft. Lately, there has been an increase in the number of identity and data theft cases, primarily because of the growing use of websites and web applications. The growing popularity of online consulting and sharing of health-related results online is also resulting identity thefts as hackers are increasingly targeting the servers of healthcare organizations. The increasing complexity of these attacks is prompting government organizations to implement secure authentication solutions, including biometric solutions. These solutions are highly reliable as they efficiently assess individuals on the basis of their physical or behavioral patterns, which are very difficult to forge.

      Further, the report states that the high cost of biometric systems can hamper market growth.
