Research Methodology

Segmentation by Product

Iris recognition is also popular for its accuracy and ease-of-use by patients in healthcare industry. Iris recognition segment is expected to have growing demand with ongoing situations such as contactless world. According to the Research Fellow and iris recognition technology expert from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Institute of Automation Sun Zhenan believes unique characteristics such as the iris is more hygienic as it also does not have to involve physical touch in getting patient details. In order to cope with the iris recognition development, China has already created an iris biometrics database with information of 20 million people, developed by Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau and IrisKing.

In Nov 2019, Northwell Health stated that it is utilizing iris scanning biometrics technology from RightPatient with the high-resolution photograph that is taken additionally which can support facial recognition.

In Aug 2020, EyeLock and CMITech have started mass production of nano iXT biometric iris recognition reader for international market. nano iXT works on all types of EyeLock readers and is fitted with various user-focused features such as large LCD touchscreen, dual auto-tilt cameras (iris and face biometrics), audible and visual user guidance, built-in HID card reader and multi-language support.

Segmentation by Geography

US holds the largest market share of healthcare biometrics market owing to increasing healthcare expenditure, and highly developed healthcare systems in the country.
