Biometrics Institute launches 2015 Industry Survey to assess biometrics industry

May 12, 2015 - 

The Biometrics Institute has launched its 2015 Industry Survey requesting its members and key stakeholders to provide input on the current status and expected future developments of the biometrics industry.

Now in its sixth year, the industry survey assesses trends and developments in the biometrics industry.

The survey’s results will provide a number of projections and expectations for the performance of the biometric industry in the coming year as well as highlight areas for development and research.

The survey is being distributed to all Biometrics Institute members and other key stakeholders, all of whom will receive a free copy of the full report through the website while others can request an executive summary.

“The biometrics industry continues to grow and develop and with over 180 member organisations representing over 600 individuals plus over 5000 contacts in our network, the Biometrics Institute is well placed to capture the thinking of the biometrics world and gauge levels of uptake,” said Isabelle Moeller, CEO of the Biometrics Institute. “Based on changes in the industry and feedback from our members, this year’s survey has been significantly updated and refreshed. We are particularly excited to see what developments the industry expects to see over the next 12 months.”

The Biometrics Institute will present the findings at various events, including the interim findings at Biometrics Institute Asia-Pacific Conference on May 27-28 in Sydney, the detailed briefing at Member Meeting London on June 12 at Australia House in London, and a full briefing at Biometrics 2015: Secure identity solutions now! on October 13-15 in London.

Previously reported, the Biometrics Institute recently issued a warning to the Australian government that they must take extra precaution when using children’s biometrics for border protection and other purposes.
