Report Description

Biometrics is a technology that helps in the identification of individuals based on their physical or behavioral features. It involves verification and identification of both physiological traits such as fingerprints, face recognition, DNA, palm print, hand geometry, and iris recognition and behavioral traits such as keystroke patterns and speech pattern/voice recognition. The technology is also used for authentication purposes. A biometrics system can be either an identification system or a verification system. In an identification system, a person’s identity is determined without their consent. Identification systems are more often used in surveillance applications. In a verification system, the biometric data is used only to verify a person’s identity. Verification systems are mostly used in access control applications.

TechNavio’s analysts forecast the Biometrics Market in North America to grow at a CAGR of 16.98 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Press Release

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Biometrics Market in North America 2014-2018

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Biometrics Market in North America : ""3M Cogent Inc., Cross Match Technologies Inc., NEC Corp., Safran SA , Advanced Biometrics, Amano Cincinnati, Aware , BIO-Key International, Cognitec Systems , DigitalPersona , Fingertec USA, Fujitsu , GAMASIS, Griaule Biometrics , M2Sys, NuanceCommunications, Precise Biometrics, ZKteco

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “The integration of biometrics and smart cards for projects such as driving licenses and passports is one of the major trends witnessed in the market. In addition to these projects, biometrics is being used as a stand-alone authentication device for various purposes. Biometrics integrated with smart cards offers the advantage of offline authentication, which is beneficial for end-users in remote locations that do not have a proper communication infrastructure. In addition, smart cards have the added advantage of storing many applications for multiple purposes”

According to the report the Biometrics market in North America is driven by several growth factors. The strong economy of the US is one of its major drivers. The US is the largest economy in the world and one of the major exporters of arms and ammunitions. Its financial strength and abundant revenue enable it to make significant investments in the Biometrics sector for security applications. The demand for a high level of security, which in turn leads to high adoption of biometrics in the Government, Healthcare, and Transport sectors, is another major driver in the market.

Further, the report states despite the above drivers, the growth of the Biometrics market in North America is curtailed by some challenges. Strong competition from inexpensive non-biometric technologies such as swipe cards, token-based two-factor authentication, and software authentication is one of the key challenges for the market.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
