DUBLIN, Ireland, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fxj9gz/face_and_voice) has announced the addition of the "Face and Voice Biometrics - Global Strategic Business Report" report to their offering.
This report analyzes the worldwide markets for Face and Voice Biometrics in US$ Thousands by the following Product Segments: Face Biometrics, and Voice Biometrics.
Unlike other technologies such as vein pattern scanning, fingerprint identification or hand geometry, all of which demand individuals to be identified to make some contact with the reader or the system, facial and voice recognition technologies can establish an individual's identity even without any established contact between the person and the system, just by capturing image or voice samples of the person with the help of cameras and voice recorders respectively. The non-intrusive features of these technologies give it an edge over other biometric modalities.
Thanks to several success stories from government and commercial implementations, face and voice biometric technologies are now being well accepted in the field of Information Security. Voice biometrics is especially poised to succeed in this space. Having proven its worth in password reset application for years in enterprise IT help desk and customer care operations, voice recognition systems are evolving into a mainstream commercial user authentication technology, achieving significant adoption in a range of customer-facing applications.
In Europe, biometric technologies in the public sector, until now, have fairly survived the debt crisis largely as a result of most EU governments' regional agenda to implement Biometric IDs for citizens ranging from biometric based passports to biometrics based national IDs. Driving interest in these national agendas is the ability of these programs to strengthen cross border security and control fraud. Cultural and economic development in all countries across the globe depends upon an open border.
The said need is especially pronounced in Europe keeping in view the fact that the continent has one of the largest and most open trade platforms. Trade ranks as one of the most important drivers of employment creation and economic growth and strengthening of trade condition is imperative to ensuring competitiveness of EU in the global market, especially at a time when its economy is undergoing its toughest financial challenge ever.
As Europe turns its focus to international trade, biometrics is poised to play an instrumental role in trade facilitation by enhancing operational security and optimizing trade flows, which is imperative for continuous economic growth and prosperity. Adoption potential of biometric solutions therefore remains high in commercial shipping and international trade.
The emphasis on curbing illegal immigration is now even higher in Europe as a result of the on-going debt crisis, given the magnitude of annual costs incurred by governments in supporting immigrant population. As governments seek to reduce their fiscal loads, unwarranted expenditure incurred on illegal immigrants is coming under the scanner, and biometrics is emerging into a prime beneficiary in the given scenario.
