Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.

OMICS Group is organizing 4th International Conference and Exhibition on Biometrics & Biostatistics during Nov 16-18, San Antonio, USA. This conference will provide a new forum for broad areas defining security policies and user behavior as well as social influence of biometrics security also it will emphasize on the recent advances and researches in the field of biostatistics and the statistical methodology and clinical research. OMICS International Organizes 300+ Conferences, 500+ Workshops and 200+ Symposiums Every Year on Pharma, Medicine, Science and Technology across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 400+ Open access journals which contains over 30000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members. The overall biometric market is increasing with a CAGR of 17.6% from 2014 to 2020. The major applications for the biometric market are travel and immigration and government. Fingerprint biometric is the major shareholder in the biometric market and voice has the highest growth potential, followed by iris recognition; the market is currently valued at approximately $5 billion; fingerprint identification technology may see the biggest gains growing upto $6 billion in 2015; the market for face, iris, vein, and voice recognition is expected to expand upto $3.5 billion; large government ID and security programs are key drivers in fueling growth. Reports project that the global biometrics market is expected to grow upto $12 billion in 2015 from its current estimated value of $5 billion. As per the top reports, estimated annual growth rate is upto 18.9 percent.
