Biometrics - Trends & Opportunities Worldwide

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Biometrics - Trends & Opportunities Worldwide" report to their offering.

Increasing security concerns ranging from individual identity theft, corporate security, to even national security represents factors that are important to the biometrics market. Some countries have already rolled out biometric systems at airports and other ports of entry to check flow of illegal immigrants into their respective territories. On the technological front, non-contact systems could emerge as the answer to expel inhibitions exhibited by users. Development of industry-wide standards has been initiated by some industry groups, which would lead to lower costs and enable easier adoption of present and emerging technologies. Government initiatives could emerge as the key to biometrics growth.

These and other market data and trends are presented in "Biometrics: Trends & Opportunities Worldwide" by BizAcumen, Inc. These reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
