This edition of the eUpdate is an exclusive preview of findings and forecasts from Acuity's forthcoming market research report: The Future of Biometrics.


Acuity's findings and presentation may be unlike other biometrics industry research you have seen. This is due to 4 key factors:

  • A quantitative approach is applied to market forecasts. This approach is based on the development of modeling tools designed to project total market potential for biometrically enabled solutions within select market sectors. These tools determine total market value based on an analysis of how these solutions can augment or replace existing manual and/or automated processes or introduce new processes based on unique technological capabilities. The models rely on public domain and private primary data sources and are flexibly structured to account for known and predictive factors. Primary sources determine known model data - such as the number of port facilities or annual passports issued. Conservative assumptions for predictive factors - such as technology pricing and anticipated adoption rates are then introduced to determine forecasts.
  • This report presents unique strategic insight into how the market for biometrics will evolve through 2020. It does not review the current status of market players or deployments. Nor does it act as a biometrics primer. It is an advanced document that assumes an understanding of the industry and associated technologies. The focus is on the future - What will drive and shape biometrics market evolution and where will the most lucrative biometric market opportunities be? It is intended to provide a basis for short and long term strategic planning for technology and solution development and deployment for both Public Sector and Commercial applications.
  • The report is presented in two parts which can be purchased individually or together. Part One contains the in-depth analysis and Part Two provides detailed market segmentation and forecasts. This gives those just looking for the numbers a flexible and cost effective solution to their market research requirements.
  • The report is priced to meet the needs of all market players ... even those with limited market research budgets. I must admit that I simply do not believe in $4000 USD generic market research reports. (If your budget is in that range, feel free to contact me for custom work. )

I hope you enjoy the teaser and are inspired to take advantage of the special pricing available only to eUpdate subscribers and only until March 31, 2007.


Cheers,


C. Maxine Most

Key Findings from The Future of Biometrics

  • A confluence of factors including the emerging central role of the Digital Identity in IT, population mobility and workforce decentralization, demand for eGovernment services, near ubiquitous reliance on digital transactions, and the inevitability of broadband access everywhere will require a level of authentication available only through the use of biometrics.
  • The entry of sophisticated, well funded market players with technology expertise in high resolution image capture, large scale data management and high speed processing, and pattern recognition and matching algorithms from varied fields such as robotics, and astronomy and will elevate technological capability and provide the requisite knowledge for the industry to leverage this opportunity and experience sustained growth.
  • Iris based access, identity, and surveillance applications will become integral to a range of solutions including border control, government ID programs, ATM usage and facilities, information and transactions security at nuclear and chemical plants, top secret military and intelligence facilities, and major financial institutions. Iris recognition will become a preferred method of authentication for two primary reasons. Capture technology will become increasingly more sophisticated operating accurately regardless of environmental conditions. Biometric authentication that does not require the user to "do anything" e.g. position themselves in relation to or have physical contact with a reader, will be prove safer (no transmission of germs) and more convenient for users.
  • Secure transaction capability will ultimately define the genuine opportunity for revenue associated with deployment of biometric technologies. The technology itself will, in many respects, become inconsequential as the applications it delvers become essential components of 21st century life.
