We took a look at the top countries investing the most into biometrics and identity management technology. According to a market report published by Credence Research Inc., the global biometrics technology market is expected to reach US$34.5 billion by 2022. The report emphasizes that the primary factor influencing the growth of biometrics systems is government adoption. Governments across the world are adopting biometrics technologies for access authorization, identification and verification, e-passport management and national border control projects. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to see the fastest growth, with increasing adoption of biometrics technologies particularly in India and China. North America accounted for the largest revenue share followed by Europe.
