Technological Innovations and Government Regulations Drive Use of Biometrics in Border Control Applications

(PRZOOM - Press & Newswire) —  Palo Alto, CA, United States, 2008-07-30 - The increased stringency clamped down on fraudulent activities and illegal immigration post 9/11 has greatly increased biometrics' usage in border control applications


The convenience and user friendliness of biometric solutions such as e-passports have made biometrics the security solution of choice to monitor cross-border activities.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (, North American Biometrics in Border Control Applications Markets, finds that the market earned revenues of $130.4 million in 2007 and estimates this to reach $729.5 million in 2014.

If you are interested in a virtual brochure, which provides manufacturers, end users, and other industry participants with an overview of the North American biometrics in border control applications markets, then send an email to David Escalante, Corporate Communications, at david.escalante[.], with your full name, company name, title, telephone number, company email address, company website, city, state and country. Upon receipt of the above information, an overview will be sent to you by email.

Although the government initially was reluctant to lend support to biometrics, a few major successful deployments at the air, land, and seaports won market vendors the support of the federal government.

"Regulatory standards like the Visa Waver program mandated by the United States has opened up significant revenue that generates opportunities for biometric vendors," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Neelima Sagar. "Collaborating and marketing the right technology for a specific application and educating people regarding privacy concerns through more trade shows and conferences will help vendors achieve significant profit margins."

Vendors will exploit any opportunity they can gain, since the competition continues to escalate. They could strategically position products early in their life cycle or focus to provide higher, accurate, and more cost-effective solutions.

"Historically, fingerprint recognition technology has been the most economical and well-suited technology for documents issuance and physical access control," notes Sagar. "However, a shift in dynamics is expected as the price of face recognition and iris recognition systems declines."

Market participants increasingly invest in research and development to gain an edge in technological competence and to provide enhanced, non-invasive security solutions. Iris recognition technology has taken a great leap with the development of a solution that can measure from distances more than 20 meters. Iris recognition can identify stationary as well as mobile objects and because of this will witness remarkable growth.

In the face recognition segment, the invention of 3-D face recognition eliminates a number of problems such as feature localization, pose, and illumination. Market participants can leverage these product benefits to establish a strong foothold in the market once they sort out the issues of standardization and the sales cycle.
