SmartMetric, Maker of the Biometric Fingerprint Activated Credit Card Welcomes Report Showing Market for Biometrics to Exceed $24.8 Billion in 5 Years

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 12, 2016) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- A research report issued by, Research and Markets, says biometrics will exceed $24.8 Billion over the next 5 years.

The global biometrics market report stated, "Fingerprint recognition biometric systems are the most preferred type of biometric systems used across the globe, owing to their ease of use, low cost, high speed and accurate results."

We are seeing a tremendous increase in interest in our miniature fingerprint scanner technology that fits inside credit and security cards. Banks, governments and corporations alike are recognizing the security benefits of integrating SmartMetric biometrics into their overall security strategies and systems, said today, SmartMetric's President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric is the creator of the in-the-card fingerprint scanner for chip credit cards. It uses a SmartMetric developed miniature and super thin fully functional fingerprint reader that sits inside the credit card. The biometric reader is used to turn on the card's surface chip following a fingerprint match and prior to being inserted into card readers or ATM's.

The SmartMetric solution overlays biometric protection on top of the new chip card technology now being issued across the United States. There are now more than 4.8 billion chip payments cards issued globally.
