Global Consumer Electronic Biometrics Market 2012-2016 - a new market research report on 2014-04-17 05:00:04
The Global Consumer Electronic Biometrics market is to grow at a CAGR of 40.45 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing use of personal devices for financial transactions. The Global Consumer Electronic Biometrics market has also been witnessing increasing number of mergers and acquisitions. However, the availability of inexpensive non-biometric technologies could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The Global Consumer Electronics Biometrics market has been witnessing increasing consolidation and is expected to continue in the coming years. Both the existing vendors and new entrants prefer the acquisitive route to either enter the market or broaden their portfolio of offerings. For instance, Apple acquired AuthenTec for US$356 million in 2012, which helps Apple attain all its patents for biometrics security in mobile devices. 3M completed the acquisition of Cogent Inc. in December 2010 for US$943 million. Cogent is a maker of biometrics recognition systems that allow governments and businesses to identify individuals by their fingers, palms, faces, and irises.

The major growth driver is increasing use of personal devices for financial transactions. Since financial institutions are encouraging the use of mobile banking and online financial transactions, the need for high-level security is increasing. Also, the use of biometrics in consumer electronics helps in providing high-level security, enabling the growing use of biometrics in consumer electronics.

One of the major challenges is the availability of inexpensive non-biometrics technologies. There is a high availability of solutions such as token-based two-factor authentication, password authentications, and software authentication. They are comparatively inexpensive and are much easier to operate, thereby finding greater acceptance among individual consumers. Therefore, it affects the growth of the Global Consumer Electronics Biometrics market.

The key vendors dominating this space include 3M Cogent Inc., AuthenTec Inc., Fujitsu Ltd., and NEC Corp.
