specific areas.
Report Description
What are the key drivers behind recent market
changes? Global governmental spending on
biometric programs and corresponding systems is
predominantly driven by the numerous e-passport
and national identity card programs underway in
various countries and the projects slated to
begin in the near future. The US and European
nations including the UK, Germany, France and
other smaller European nations were the early
adopters of biometric technology for various
purposes including border control, airport
security, identity security, and law enforcement.
E-Passports and national identity cards equipped
with electronic chips carrying biometric data,
form the major basis for all the aforementioned
applications. With increasing popularity,
countries in Asia Pacific and Latin America are
adopting biometric passports and electronic
identity cards. Furthermore, the increasing
instances of terrorism around the world are also
urging governments of vulnerable nations such as
the US, UK, Russia, and India to introduce secure
biometric passports and electronic documents
which prove instrumental in checking the entry of
hostile forces into countries through the borders
or airports. These national identity and
biometric passport issuance programs involve huge
investment and require long durations to be
The report provides detailed analysis of the
market for biometric systems during 20142024,
including the factors that influence why
countries are investing or cutting expenditure on
biometric systems. It provides detailed
expectations of growth rates and projected total
expenditure. Government initiatives towards
identity and border control, increasing concern
over data security and growth in urban population
leading towards increase the proportion of rebel
groups and terrorists are expected to boost the
demand for biometric identity and security
systems over the coming years. As this sector
gains prominence, it is expected that large
competitors will try to generate competence by
acquiring medium and small sized niche entities,
with unique facilities that will fill the gaps in
their portfolio of products, or services. In July
2012, Apple Inc acquired fingerprint sensor and
recognition solution provider AuthenTec for
US356 million. Moving ahead the company has
integrated the fingerprint recognition into its
latest mobile devices iPhone 5S. In the same
month, Cross Match Technologies, a provider of
interoperable biometric identity management
systems was acquired by Francisco Partners, a
global private equity firm focused on investments
in technology and technology-enabled services
business. Later in the same year, search engine
giant, Google acquired facial recognition
technology company Viewdle.
Reason To Buy
Policies and technology developments to protect
civil rights as well as personal and information
privacy have become inevitable prior to applying
any advanced biometric technology into practice.
In recent years, privacy issues are becoming
increasing significant as novel biometric
technologies such as facial recognition, iris
recognition and DNA identification technologies
are introduced. Theft of biometric information
might result in unauthorized access to military
facilities and thus perpetrate terrorist
activities resulting in a major threat to the
national security. Biometric information
collected by the government agencies may also be
transferred to other departments for
administrative or other purposes that will
increase chances of illegal hacking. .
Furthermore, biometric data that is acquired
originally for national ID or for passports can
also be used by government agencies for
surveillance purposes and for checks against
forensic databases without the person being aware
of its use. DNA identification systems, a new
category of biometric system presents privacy
issues, different from those involved in other
biometrics collection. DNA sample collected
through a blood draw or a swab of the inner cheek
is more invasive than other external biometrics
such as fingerprint or photograph. Also, it
contains information about a persons genetic
make-up, including gender, health, disease
history and other hereditary information that can
be used for purposes other than for which it was
Reason To Buy
Historically, the government agencies have been
collecting information from only one biometric
system at a time. However, in recent years, use
of multi-modal biometrics is gaining prominence
as collecting more than one piece of biometric
data from an individual makes identification more
accurate. Therefore, designing completely
reliable and automatic biometric systems is a key
challenge for companies and governments alike. As
there is no standardization of biometric data due
to information collection by several law
enforcement agencies simultaneously, achieving
interoperability by integrating all these
databases has become very difficult. Furthermore,
high data retention time leads to additional
problems as data that is less identifiable in the
past becomes more identifiable with the
advancement in technology. For example, biometric
records stored in the Automated Biometric
Identification System (IDENT) and Integrated
Automated Fingerprint Identification System
(IAFIS), by US law enforcement agencies, are
expected to be retained for 75 years. This means
that the government agencies will be using the
same poor quality biometric data and information
despite the developments in technology, in a
drive to achieve interoperability. Additionally,
technical issues in some biometrics, such as
facial recognition, make their use inappropriate,
as accuracy is mainly dependent on consistent
lighting conditions and angles of view.
Reason To Buy
The government agencies worldwide have started to
recognize biometrics as one of the safest
verification and identity authentication tools.
The use of biometrics such as iris, fingerprint,
finger vein, voice recognition and voiceprint
have become a new generation of authentication.
However, it has also created a new generation of
fraud. One of most serious threat to the
technology is from impersonation. Impersonation
sees the imposter attempt to be incorrectly
recognized as a different, legitimate user. The
imposter with a fake identity but legitimate
biometric information stored in his biometric
card can successfully access vital government
sites and can even cause damage on someone elses
identity. The biometric card does not ensure that
the person applying for an ID card is using her
own name, rather than a stolen or false identity.
The plan does require card applicants to present
identity documents such as drivers licenses and
national identification cards. However, the
imitated identify documents are easy to get in
several countries including the United States. It
is likely therefore that the well-developed
identity document forgery industry will provide
support to the imposters and will help them gets
their biometric cards issued on a fake identity
resulting in a situation which can be even more
fatal.. The imposters are more difficult to
identify than the individuals with fake documents
as they have legitimate biometric cards.
Reason To Buy
Biometric systems primarily work on security
features by protecting the information stored on
the card. However, most of the biometric cards
encryption scheme with technologies including
fingerprint recognition, face recognition and
voice recognition can be broken and once the
encryption system on the ID card is broken, or
the master decryption key leaks or is reverse
engineered, then all existing ID cards can become
vulnerable. Some of the widely used biometrics
systems are vulnerable to hacking with even the
most common techniques. A fingerprint can be
duplicated using gelatin molds and then pressed
against the scanner of a fingerprint reader,
granting access to its user. There have been
instances where voice recognition systems have
been defeated with voice recordings. Even face
recognition systems have been bypassed with
photographs of the legitimate users. Although,
the use of hybrid biometrics systems have
successfully overcome many of these hacking
attempts successfully, it has proved difficult
for the authorities to avoid expert hackers who
have even managed to outsmart hybrid biometrics
systems. With the advent of new technologies in
the security, the hackers also advance their
expertise to overcome the modern security
measures. Therefore, the biometrics sector will
be under constant threat from sophisticated
hacking and the authorities will have to rely on
biometrics on a partial basis.
