But conversely, the unreliability and high cost involvement related to the implementation of biometrics technologies will decelerate the growth of the global biometrics system market in the near future, the report said.

Despite this, the development of multimodal biometrics solution will further improve the biometrics system market in the next five years.

The report highlights the top technology innovations in the application segment including hand geometry, face, iris, voice, AFIS, signature, non-AFIS, and others (DNA and rhythms),

The non-AFIS segment led all other application segments in 2012 as a result of being cost-effective and user-friendly.

This is followed closely by iris recognition, which is expected to contribute significantly to the growth of biometrics system market over the next five years as a result of greater adoption in the high-end security applications and modest contactless and safe biometrics application.

The transport/visa/logistics segment had the largest market share in 2012, and is expected to display a significant growth in the biometrics system market in the near future, while the banking segment is also expected to see a large growth rate in the next few years.

The report states that North America surpasses all other biometric regional markets in 2014, followed by Europe.

Additionally, Asia Pacific is expected to see undergo substantial growth in the near future, driven by increasing concerns of safety and security and rising government projects such as e-passports and the national identification program.
