adoption of automated fingerprint identification systems across the globe

In the U.S., these systems are extensively used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for criminal identification, person background check and fraud prevention.

Automated fingerprint identification is a process of comparing an unidentified fingerprint against recognized fingerprints. These identification systems are somewhat related to conventional access control and attendance systems except that automated fingerprint identification offers real-time identification. Besides this, these systems are also useful for a wide range of tasks including processing, searching, editing and retrieving.

These identification systems are also used by law enforcement agencies for criminal identification, person background check and fraud prevention purposes. Also, automated identification systems are used by government and private businesses for identification and security purposes. These systems also find application in various sectors like national identity cards, voter registration, border control, latent print matching and public safety.

According to a recent informative report on Market Research Reports Search Engine (MRRSE), automated fingerprint identification systems have gained significant momentum across the world, owing to rising security concerns and unlawful activities. The need for efficient investigation and simple suspect identification has increased the demand for fingerprint identification systems.

Moreover, the progress in digital electronics industry and rising demand for faster identification are likely to fuel the demand for automated fingerprint identification. On the other hand, accuracy and reliability of fingerprint identification is a foremost concern in the identification process offered by these systems.

Technical requirements in the integration of hardware like fingerprint scanner and flaws in software algorithms for fingerprint comparison are some of the challenges faced by the market participants. Also, with advancements in identification technologies like iris scan, retina scan, palm recognition and facial recognition are also anticipated to hamper the market’s growth trajectory.

The growing adoption of automated fingerprint identification systems by government agencies and private enterprises provide lucrative opportunities for the industry. With developments in cloud based automated fingerprint identification systems, the market is expected to gain impetus and offer additional growth prospects.
