With the development of the information age, people have put forward higher requirements for information security protection. As a new type of technology in recent years, biometrics has played an increasingly prominent role in protecting people's information security. As the identification algorithms of major technology companies are different, the development of identification technology is also different. In the future, as a biometric technology to protect people's lives and property, it will be widely used. What are the benefits of biometric technology application?
Technologies such as fingerprint recognition, face recognition, iris recognition, and vein recognition in mobile phones have been used commercially for decades. With the increase in applications and the enrichment of application scenarios, we finally see the spring of commercial applications of biometrics.
According to industry data, the global biometrics market reached US$3.01 billion in 2007 and reached US$13 billion in 2015, with a compound annual growth rate of 20.07%. It is estimated that by 2020, the global biometrics market will exceed 25 billion U.S. dollars. In the domestic market, my country's technology in the field of biometrics has reached the world's advanced level. With the continuous breakthrough of technology and the continuous expansion of application scenarios, the domestic biometrics market will have more room for development.
In China, biometric technology has replaced the traditional attendance system, and it is also one of the main application fields of biometric technology.
Biometric technology is used to check the attendance of employees. Fingerprint recognition technology is one of the earliest biometric technology used in the attendance market. At present, the traditional attendance market is almost monopolized by fingerprint recognition technology. The fingerprint attendance system is cost-effective, convenient and easy to use, which are the main reasons for its successful promotion. However, with the development of other biometric technologies, this situation is slowly changing. For example, face recognition has the advantages of non-contact and long-distance recognition, and vein recognition has gradually entered the attendance market due to the advantages of non-contact and in vivo recognition.
Consumer product market
The consumer product market is mainly represented by mobile devices such as mobile phones. In the past two years, new mobile phones released by major mobile phone companies have launched products and applications with biometrics. It seems that mobile phones without fingerprint recognition or face recognition technology cannot keep up with the times. Their annual shipments reach tens of millions. The rapid popularization of smart phones has greatly promoted the outbreak of the biometrics industry.
Identity authentication is also a broad application area of access control. The application of identity authentication is an important segment of the large-scale commercial application of biometrics. At present, some traditional communities have also installed biometric system access control, and intelligently monitor and manage the community’s Personnel entering and exiting effectively reduce the probability of burglary in the community. Just like their applications in other access control fields and even the entire security field, they embody the most primitive and core value of biometrics.
Biometrics technology is changing our lives in many ways. With the needs of the security field and many social activities, the development of biometrics technology is accelerating. The advantages of biometric technology are obvious, and its future market is immeasurable.
