Research and Markets: Global Biometrics for Mobile Devices 2015: Fingerprint Recognition, Voice Recognition, Facial Recognition, and Other Biometric Modalities for Identification and Authentication Applications

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/chx7q6/biometrics_for) has announced the addition of the "Biometrics for Mobile Devices" report to their offering.

Starting from a base of $249 million 2015, global mobile biometrics revenue is forecast to reach $3.5 billion by 2024, with cumulative revenue for the 10-year period totaling $17.5 billion.

Biometrics for mobile devices have finally reached a tipping point. The march began with the release of the Apple iPhone in 2007 and later the iPad, each subsequently matched by Android competitors. These smartphones and tablets finally have enough processing power and hardware capabilities to put biometrics directly into their users' hands. Biometrics, whether for mobile devices or large stationary systems, typically perform one of two functions: authentication, proving that someone is who they claim to be, or identification, figuring out who someone is. Nearly all consumer-facing use cases are authentication and nearly all identification uses are enterprise-facing, especially government use cases. Somewhere in the middle, financial institutions are offering their users the chance to authenticate to online banking systems with their voices or with their eyes, in place of keying a personal identification number (PIN).

This research indicates that the two dominant industries in the mobile biometrics market are finance and government. For finance, the online banking uses cases are one driver. Another is using a biometric authentication in addition to a PIN for high-value or sensitive transactions. Government applications include identifying people from national fingerprint databases. Other industries include healthcare, where biometrics can authenticate caregivers and identify patients.

This report examines the market trends and technology issues surrounding biometrics for mobile devices and presents 10-year forecasts for mobile device biometric hardware and software during the period from 2015 through 2024. Biometric modalities and applications are analyzed in depth, and the report also includes detailed profiles of 25 key industry players. Market forecasts, segmented by world region, include mobile biometric hardware unit shipments, device pricing and revenue, software application licenses, application pricing, and application revenue.
