FARMINGTON, Conn., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Despite the popular perception that the security Industry is one of the most recession resilient industries worldwide, capable of providing a positive rate of return to an economy's GDP, the global biometrics market ironically showed signs of weakening during the midst of steady deterioration in business climate between 2007 and 2009. However, as technological advancements and proliferation of internet applications, such as social networks, drive the role of fingerprint authentication, particularly in wireless devices, the biometrics market is expected to rebound to generate $16.47 billion by 2017.
Global Information Inc (GII) presents two excellent market research reports covering the global markets for biometrics and silicon-based fingerprint sensors from our premium research partner, Global Industry Analysts, Inc.
Silicon-based Fingerprint Sensors
The global market for silicon-based fingerprint sensors is projected to reach $255 million by 2018. Major players in this market include Atmel Corporation, AuthenTec Inc., Fingerprint Cards AB, Fujitsu Limited, Hangzhou Synochip Technologies Co. Ltd., IDEX ASA, Jiangsu Winch Corp. Ltd., Validity Sensors Inc., among others.
Growth in social networks such as LinkedIn, Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook is increasing the demand for a user-friendly and secure mechanism for managing the usersÂ' digital identity. Silicon-based fingerprint sensors are expected to hold significant potential in maintaining digital identities in cloud-based computing infrastructure. In the coming years, more services are expected to be accessed and aggregated via personalization and authentication events using sensors. Users are expected to increasingly use services such as Microsoft Live ID, Twitter API, OpenID, Facebook Connect, and Google ID for securely connecting the user to their personal accounts and other websites on the Internet.
Asia-Pacific represents the largest regional market in terms of value sales. Japan is projected to be the fastest growing market with a CAGR of about 19.1% over the analysis period, closely followed by the Asia-Pacific region. Localization of software is expected to drive growth in European and Asian regions, particularly in high growth markets such as China. Advanced swipe sensors, due to its lower form factor, are expected to be employed increasingly in devices such as mobile phones, laptops, and tablets PCs, among others. The ongoing advancements, mostly directed towards miniaturization of sensors, have resulted in lowering of production costs as well as enabling the application of sensors in a wider range of devices. Fingerprint technology is expected to remain as a market leader in the coming years mainly due to ease-of-use and cost factor.

We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
