Biometrics Institute releases survey

July 31, 2012 - 

The Biometrics Institute today released the results from its third annual industry survey.

The survey found that experts thought the most significant development in the biometrics industry over the past year was the wide scale deployments of national identification programs and the increasing use of biometrics at airports worldwide.

The study, which polled 249 respondents, also found that the biggest trend was the increasing use of biometrics in everyday applications. According to Isabelle Moeller, Chief Executive of the Biometrics Institute: “The adoption of biometrics in everyday life is expected to be the most significant development in the future overall and in both Australia, New Zealand and Europe and amongst both users and suppliers.”

The full version of the survey is now available to Biometrics Institute members. The results will also be presented at the organization’s next UK member meeting and at its 8th Biometrics Institute Technology Showcase and Exhibition in Canberra/ Australia.

The Biometrics Institute is the international independent not-for-profit user group with currently over 120 member organizations including governments, financial services institutions, health service providers and also vendors of biometric products and services. The Institute has offices in Australia and the UK.
