Identification documents and PIN are traditional methods used to verify the identity of a human being. However, an increasing number of cases of security threats, illegal transactions at ATMs, unauthorised immigration and unauthorised infiltration across borders are factors which have resulted in the evolution of new generation biometrics methods. New generation biometrics refers to technologies that are used to verify the identity of individuals through biological characteristics such as facial expression, voice, palm, fingerprints, signature, iris, vein and DNA. Fingerprints, iris and facial recognition are the most commonly used techniques for identification. Vein and DNA recognition are the latest biometric techniques. Biometric traits are permanent and unique. Accuracy, high degree of privacy, ease of use, uniformity across the system and interoperability are some of the advantages of biometric techniques. Biometric technology enables storage of information in a digital form which is nearly impossible to reconstruct. The exceptional features of biometric techniques ensure a wide spectrum of applications, ranging from government, border security, healthcare and commercial security, to banking and finance, travel and immigration and defence. Government funding for the deployment of biometric technology is also a major driver for this market. Major players operating in the market are 3M, Fujistu Ltd., Safran SA, Thales SA, Siemens AG and Fulcrum Biometrics.
To enable an in-depth analysis, the global new generation biometrics market is segmented based on technology, applications and geography. The global biometric application market is categorised into various applications namely border security, healthcare, commercial security, banking and finance, travel and immigration and defence. Different technologies used for human identification are palm, fingerprints, signature, iris, vein and DNA. Analysis is carried out across different regions, namely, North America, Europe, APAC and LAMEA. Fingerprint recognition is the most widely used technology followed by face and iris recognition. Travel and immigration is the application that generates the highest revenue. It is succeeded by government and defence. North America is the global leader in new generation biometrics, followed by Europe and APAC.
