Market report on biometric technology in mobile phones

Research And Markets : 26 February, 2014  (New Product)
Smartphones equipped with biometric access control technology come under the spotlight in a new market research report
Market report on biometric technology in mobile phones

The "Biometrics in Cellphones" market report has been issued by Research and Markets, examining the growth in the use of biometric technology in the mobile telephone industry.

Mobile phones with Voice and fingerprint authentication technology are growing in popularity as the world shifts from contact-based financial transactions to smartphones fitted with biometrics integrated operating systems like the Apple iPhone 5S, that is providing secure authentication to the smartphone owner and the banks, both of whom are parties to online financial transactions.

This study focuses on growth in the biometrics devices market worldwide with special attention on India as having a mass demand for online transactions facilitated by biometrics and also a mass availability of feature phones supporting secure authentication, that could transform India into the next big destination for this market.

The use of biometrics for authentication in phones and laptops is not a new phenomenon. Laptop makers such as Lenovo and a number of smartphone and tablet manufacturers have already incorporated biometrics to authenticate their users.

The growing ubiquity of smartphones and the rapid and dramatic developments in their features have seen more users turning to use their phones to pay online bills, check personal and official mails, social networks, recording transaction details, store large quantities of data, etc.

This growing trend has compelled more companies to opt for more secure authentication solutions, the nearest being biometrics. Apple's decision to include a fingerprint scanner in its new upmarket iPhone 5S and its successful integration has helped in bringing biometrics-based authentication into the mainstream.
