  • Key Findings Wide scale adoption expected by 2015 Biometrics is set to emerge as a new source of revenue within the industry in 2013. By 2015, wide scale adoption is expected. High-growth expected – Mobile phone Will Lead the market Mobile phone industry is the key growth area of the future and is expected to have the largest share in the biometrics for consumer electronics market by 2015-17. Faster Adoption in Asia and USA USA is a rapidly growing market, though its rate of penetration in the biometrics for consumer electronics market is currently lower than Asia. Major consumer electronics market participants, such as Apple, Microsoft, Google, are integrating biometrics faster. The Asian market is also progressing with wide user adoption and major mobile phone manufacturers, such as Samsung, LG, Sony, HTC, etc. All the major mobile phone manufacturers are racing against each other to introduce biometric-enabled phones.

  • Key Findings (continued) Fingerprint Technology Leading – All major players Involved Patents in the Biometrics for Consumer Electronics industry are largely owned by USA, Japan, Korea, although Europe is not too far behind. Fingerprint technology dominates the patent landscape. North America Leading Venture Capitalists are playing an important role in funding, which are currently mostly concentrated in the North America region . Mobile Phone Industry holds the key to success Biometric capabilities will influence diverse consumer industries, such as mobile phones, computers/laptops/notebooks/tablets, gaming and television. Biometric authentication is gaining more traction as corporations focus more on identity verification, and device security amid the growing trend toward enterprise mobility. The mobile phones industry is considered as the industry with most potential. D503-TI 7
  • Key Findings (continued) New Business Models of Tomorrow Biometrics in consumer electronics products is enabling new business models, such as pay as u go, mobile commerce, NFC-enabled transactions. Biometrics for consumer electronics is also perceived to have a strong impact on social trends, connectivity and convergence, bricks and clicks, health, wellness and well-being. Mobile Commerce Enabled by NFC and Biometrics For mass adoption of mobile commerce, consumers must be assured that security measures protecting their devices are strong effective. Mobile payments is going to experience explosive growth in near future and security is of paramount concern here. Combined capabilities of NFC and Biometrics will ensure the high adoption of mobile commerce. Active Stakeholders Promoting Growth Integration of biometrics in consumer electronics is an emerging trend. As biometrics is an established technology and in use for other applications for quite a long time, the number of biometrics stakeholders is high. Now these stakeholders are rapidly identifying the opportunities in consumer electronics and using their know-how to offer solutions dedicated to tconsumer electronics market. D503-TI 8
  • Technology Snapshot Overview Biometrics For Consumer Electronics “Biometrics” allow identification or authentication of a person based on a physiological or behavioral characteristic. Features such as fingerprint, voice, face, iris, hand geometry, vein are measured. Biometric technologies have quickly become the foundation of highly secure personal verification and identification solutions, namely in unauthorized immigration, visa frauds, border intrusion and so on. Significance Key Strengths D503-TI Apart from its use in government security applications, biometric technologies have found increasing opportunities in consumer electronics market over the past few years. As people are increasingly cramming sensitive information into their computers and smartphones, they are becoming more concerned about identity theft and financial fraud. As such, the need for highly secure identification and personal verification technologies is becoming apparent in consumer electronics market. Unique: Instead of basing identity authentication on what someone possesses or what someone knows, biometric identification is based on what one is, or how one behaves. Convenient: Biometric sensors eliminate the need for the user to write down passwords, greatly reduce calls to help desks and ensure that only a preenrolled and authorized user gains access to a PC or cell phone, the data stored on the device, and the network to which it connects. Secure: Biometric technology is a measurement of human characteristics that are unique to an individual. It is this uniqueness that provides unique identification to each individual and enhances security by eliminating the chances of identity theft. 9
  • Key Biometric Technologies for Consumer Electronics Finger Print Recognition Fingerprint recognition is the method of identification using the impressions made by the minute ridge formations or patterns found on the fingertips. Palmprint Recognition In Palmprint recognition, palm print features, which are composed of principal lines, wrinkles, minutiae, delta points are captured as images and used for identification. Iris Recognition Iris recognition technology uses the black and white image of eye captured using IR video camera to compare various parameters, such as rings, furrows and freckles in the cornea, iris and pupil of the eye. . Face Recognition Voice Recognition D503-TI Face recognition uses facial characteristics (distance between the eyes, width of nose, depth of eye sockets, mouth, jaws, cheek bones) to map the nodal point on an individual’s face and compares with stored image in the database. Voice recognition involves authenticating a speaker based on numerous voice characteristics such as vocal tract geometry, harmonics, pitch and range. 10

  • Market Overview Overview The adoption of biometrics has been concentrated on the government sector so far. Over the past few years, biometric technologies are being integrated into consumer electronic products and this has created a shift in the biometric market dynamics. Biometrics for the consumer electronics market is in a transition state currently. The acquisition of Authentec by Apple has kick-started the market. All the major mobile manufacturers will soon follow this trend and one can expect mobile phones with embedded biometric sensor by the end of the year 2013. Not only to be used in mobile phones, biometrics will also be in use in other consumer electronics product segments. Initially, it will be the mobile phone market that would drive the biometrics market in consumer electronics applications. Key Application Sectors: Mobile Phone D503-TI PCs/Laptop/ Tablet Car Locking System Gaming Console TV Remote Control 12
