The biometric market has made an improvement in the security means worldwide and everyday this market grows at important rate. In this case, Global Industry Analysts, GIA, projected that this growing rate will increase to US$16.47 billion by 2017. GIA supports the idea that the previous terrorist attacks resulted in this increment of the use of biometrics and more security controls measures. For this reason, the biometric market has the need to evolve continuously.
Since this is a market with an important growing rate and different options, there are some systems that gained more popularity than others. For instance, the market of Smartphones, PDAs, portable computers and any other wireless-based device have the majority of investments in the market. Governments are interested in making more investments in this sector in order to improve this service for the further development of ID Cards. This is because the use of the wireless devices represents the vehicle for an upcoming biometric market.
The largest market in biometrics has been the US for several years, although Asia-Pacific is the one with the fastest growing rate. This final market has the fastest increase because the governments of the continent encourage foreign investors to participate in the market, also because of the presence of higher crime rates makes the security controls to forcedly improve the biometric systems. But in the two previous markets, including this time Latin America, the most reproduced systems are the Iris/Retinal Scans and the facial recognition.
