"The fear of legal and illegal migration reflected in the BREXIT referendum, as well as the anxiety generated by the impact of European 'open' borders are echoed in US calls for a ban on Muslim immigrants and a wall on the Mexican border," says Maxine Most, Principal at Acuity Market Intelligence. "Regardless of their validity, these responses reveal global concerns about the ability of countries to identify and control who is crossing their borders."
"Add the recent spate of terrorist attacks, increasing international travel and border congestion, and on-going migrant crises, and reliable, automated identification and border control is no longer a luxury, but a global necessity," Most, a biometric identity and security technology expert, said. "As national security and border authorities rush to embrace biometrics. Acuity expects worldwide automated border control market growth to accelerate rapidly over the next decade."
