Stay Up to Date on Our 17th Annual Biometrics Year in Review Coverage with Our Ongoing Roundup

In many industries, openness and dialogue between constituent businesses, even if they’re rivals, is often a critical condition for fostering overall industry growth. Knowing not only what competitors and peers are doing, but also what they’re thinking, can help industry leaders to set their objectives and adapt to market and regulatory changes. That may be especially the case in the world of biometrics, where the dynamics of consumer perception and market demand can shift rapidly, while major regulatory frameworks are still emerging.

That’s why the annual FindBiometrics Year in Review survey is so important. Each year, it features the participation of industry professionals and analysts, who share their views on some of the most critical issues facing the industry; what this produces is, in the end, a comprehensive self-portrait, helping participants to better understand and situate themselves in a very complex industry. The survey tends to reaffirm popular beliefs, such as the excitement around facial recognition and financial services applications in recent years; and it can also deliver some genuine surprises, such as the third of respondents in last year’s survey who said they felt uncomfortable with how their governments were using biometric technology.

This year’s results, collected from a record 230+ participants, are no less interesting, and should prove helpful to industry leaders as they consider their strategies going forward into 2020.
