OCTOBER 4--There has been a great deal of attention focused on biometrics where authentication and identification are critical. Though biometrics has been used for years in hundreds of high-profile deployments, with millions enrolled in public- and private-sector biometrics systems, the size, composition, and growth of the biometrics industry are not widely known. Furthermore, there has been little discussion of the future applications for which biometrics is best suited.
The Biometric Market Report 2000--2005 from the International Biometric Group (New York NY) provides a comprehensive analysis of revenues, growth trends, and industry developments in the current and future biometrics marketplace. The report is essential reading for institutions deploying biometrics technology, investing in biometrics companies, or developing biometrics solutions.
