New Report Points to Continued Growth in Fingerprint Biometrics VAR Market

Integrated BiometricsDUBLIN, IRELAND — Research and Markets has published a new report, “Global Fingerprint Biometrics in the VAR Market 2016-2020” which forecasts the global fingerprint biometrics value-added reseller (VAR) market to grow at a CAGR of 11.8% during the period 2016-2020. Billing itself as “the world’s largest market research store” Research and Markets serves well-known international clients such as Siemens, Texas Instruments, Thermo Scientific, HP, Google, Honeywell and J.P. Morgan.

According to Integrated Biometrics’ Jim Seaborn, growth in the VAR marketplace is very good news for the company.

“We provide our many VARs with the most critical function in the development of their end-user solutions — the application and delivery of an accurate reproduction of a fingerprint, which is the absolute foundation for the success of any application or hardware to successfully identify a person,” he said.

Seaborn explained that without a successful electronic fingerprint image, the end-user product is virtually worthless in solving problems related to enrollment and verification in government, finance, border control, time and attendance, law enforcement, healthcare and other market sectors with growing dependence on biometrics technology.

Much of this increasing use of biometrics across multiple industries is the ability of capturing electronic fingerprints in the field. One of the unique attractions of Integrated Biometrics’ light emitting sensor (LES) technology is its mobile nature and ability to acquire an image in any environment without the need for constant cleaning.

“Think about it like a doorknob, you shouldn’t have to wipe it every time before opening a door. That’s what we provide with regard to little to no maintenance of a fingerprint sensor; the ability to utilize biometric identifications and downstream applications and hardware in a mobile environment,” he said.

According to the Research and Markets report, “Biometric technologies are considered to be more reliable compared to hardware devices and numeric codes… The solutions include sensors, scanners, readers, modules, fingerprint analysis software, and software development kits.”
