With the rapid development of society, the ways of identity authentication and identification are also improving. Especially in the increasingly changeable security situation, the use of scientific and technological means to help identity recognition has become the mainstream trend. In the past, identification was generally realized through appearance, voice, handwriting or identity documents. Now, the application of biometric technology has brought new ways.

Under the influence of the upsurge of artificial intelligence, biometric technology continues to accelerate the upgrading, and the market development is increasingly showing a positive trend. With many advantages such as stability, convenience and security, biometric technology has become a popular application in public security, network security and other scenarios. According to relevant statistics, by 2020, the scale of China’s biometric market is expected to exceed 30 billion yuan.

Iris recognition has broad prospects for commercialization

In the field of biometrics, fingerprint recognition is the earliest and most widely used. Speech recognition and face recognition are the most concerned hotspots. However, in addition to speech recognition and face recognition, iris recognition technology has also taken a rapid step forward. With its unique advantages such as high precision, uniqueness and difficulty in forgery, it has ushered in a period of market growth opportunities.

Compared with the high penetration of fingerprint recognition, speech recognition, face recognition and other subdivided fields, the current application of iris recognition has not yet formed a popular pattern. This means that iris recognition technology, which is expected to achieve better performance in terms of security performance, still has a very broad market prospect, and the huge commercial potential remains to be tapped.

In the domestic market, iris recognition is still in its infancy. In foreign countries, the application of iris recognition technology in the United States, the European Union and other western countries has been relatively mature. According to the statistics of market research institutions, the iris recognition market reached US $733 million in 2015 and is expected to grow to US $3.6 billion by 2020. Industry experts said that compared with the popularity of other popular segments, the development momentum of iris recognition technology will be relatively more intense in the next few years.

These fields will be the main application directions

At present, the rise of new business scenarios such as unmanned stores and “online certificates” and the landing of concepts such as intelligent security and intelligent security inspection provide a “hotbed” for the outbreak of face recognition technology. The rapid popularization of biometric technologies such as face recognition provides an important driving force for the commercialization of iris recognition.

In terms of technical features, iris recognition has many advantages, such as stability, uniqueness, non-contact, easy anti-counterfeiting and so on. Because the iris contains detailed features such as stripes and spots, it will remain unchanged in people’s life and will not be affected by external factors. Therefore, it is more accurate than fingerprint recognition and face recognition.

Therefore, thanks to its excellent advantages in security, iris recognition technology can reflect great value in the field of public security and business. In the fields of police, military, finance and security inspection, security is more important than cost. It is the main application scenario of iris recognition technology. In addition, rescue, education, transportation, ticketing and other fields are also important potential markets for iris recognition.

Looking forward to the future, how to solve the development problems?

Although iris recognition technology is an important way of identity recognition in the future, and it has a large market demand space in public security and industrial application, due to the limitations of core technology and equipment, China’s iris recognition industry still has a long way to go in order to achieve breakthrough development and achieve the same popularity as face recognition.

Compared with foreign countries, the development of iris recognition technology in China is relatively late, and data acquisition has just started. It urgently needs the strong support of national policies in order to quickly promote the progress of R & D and production. In terms of core technology innovation and component manufacturing, China’s relevant enterprises also need to continue their efforts to achieve new breakthroughs and improve the stability of system application.

In addition, while promoting iris recognition technology to the market, on the one hand, enterprises should pay attention to user experience and control the market price, so as to win the favor of consumers; On the other hand, we also need to take into account the market conditions of other biometric technologies, select appropriate and reasonable development channels, avoid repeated layout and try our best to achieve coordinated development.
