Palm vein biometrics is an authentic contactless technology that uses vascular patterns as personal identification data. The palm vein technology is secure as the data is retrieved from the body and is therefore difficult to forge. The working principle of the palm vein biometric is based on comparing and authenticating the stored vein pattern in the database with the vein pattern present in the palm of a person. The emerging trend of advance security is creating high demand of palm vein biometric in the recent times. In February 2016, Fujitsu Company launched a 2-in-1 device that consists of palm vein biometric called STYLISTIC Q736. It is one of the fastest, and accurate security solution available in the market. Additionally, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, one of the leading bank in Japan uses Fujitsu’s palm vein biometric system to provide a cost effective and secure solution. The market of palm vein biometric is likely to grow at a considerable pace during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025 owing to the growing need of securing confidential information and data of an organization in order to sustain its market position. Various initiatives have been taken by the government to provide unique identity card to the citizens. This is also expected to drive the palm vein biometric market. For instance, Indian government have taken initiatives of providing Aadhar card that consists of biometric data of the individual. On the flip side, lack of established international standards and vulnerability of biometric system is expected to hinder the growth of this market in the coming years. The global palm vein biometric market is highly competitive in nature and is controlled by few major players in the global market
