New research is available on the global government biometrics market, and according to Reportlinker, future demand is expected to be steady.
According to the research, Analysis of the Global Government Biometrics Market, increased concern for safety and security in growing economies is expected to have a positive impact on the market as a whole and emerging economies like Brazil, India, South Africa, the Middle East, Russia and China are expected to adopt the technology, initially accelerating market growth.
The report, now available in the Reportlinker catalogue, also notes that border control will dominate the global market between now and 2019, and that system integrators currently hold the majority of power.
Among the other findings of the research, fingerprint continues to be the biggest market, while face and iris recognition are gaining prominence; national ID systems are increasingly deployed in emerging economies and consolidation is expected.
Consolidation is a major trend in the industry, and is one that is expected to continue. The Biometrics Research Group, in a recent Biometrics Research Note, argues that this trend has been so far led by multinationals and that there are many small companies in the market ripe for acquisition.
