Global Iris Recognition Market: Regional Overview

  • Asia-Pacific

Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the market during the projected period. Increasing the consumer electronics market, increasing population, and growing disposable income are driving the market in the Asia-Pacific region. China and India are the countries expected to hold the largest market share in this region.

A few years back, 15% of peoples in India are failed to register with a fingerprint because a majority of the Indian population is manual laborers such as farmers with damaged fingerprints. Hence the  UIDAI committee decided to include Iris recognition as primary biometric technology for registering the identity. The presence of global players such as NEC Corporation, BioEnable Technologies, and many others are expected to add more value to the growth of the market in this region.
