Biometric Technology and its applications have existed longer than people believe. Currently the number of applications instituted around the world is increasing. In 1996 approximately 10,000 biometric devices were in use worldwide. Some estimate the number will grow to 50,000 by year 2000.Bimetric vendors feel that time and attendance is the biggest growth area for biometrics in the near future. The applications in the biometric technology are limitless. Four to five years ago biometric technology will still considered too „fictional‟ for many.
