Biometric technology is an advanced technique for the identification of humans, based on their characteristics or traits. These traits can be face, fingerprint, iris, voice, signature, palm, vein, and DNA. The existing methods of human identification such as identification documents and PIN are not able to cope up with the growing demand for stringent security, which gives a high growth opportunity for the use of the biometric technology. This technology is very popular also because biometric characters such as face, fingerprint, hand, and so on cannot be lost, stolen, or easily forged.
Biometric technology is the verification of humans by their characteristics such as face, fingerprint, voice, iris, palm, signature, vein, and DNA. DNA and vein recognition are the latest and most advanced types of biometric authentication. Fingerprint, face, and iris recognition are commonly used in almost all the application areas. The demand for biometric technologies has increased manifolds in the recent years. The basic reason behind this is the rise in the number of terrorist activities, coupled with multiplicity of theft on the part of crucial data and information which have raised concerns regarding the national security. Today, biometric technologies are used in several verticals such as consumer electronics, government organizations, airports, corporations, and so on, where security remains the prime concern.
According to the new market research report "Next Generation Biometric Market by Technology (Fingerprint, Palm, Face, Iris, Vein, Voice & Signature), Function, Application (Government, Defense, Travel & Immigration, Home Security, Banking, Consumer Electronics & so on) & Geography - Forecasts & Analysis 2014 - 2020", published by MarketsandMarkets, the biometric market will be worth $23.54 Billion by 2020 at an estimated CAGR of 17.6%.
