Global Fingerprint Sensor Market Analysis Report (2021 - 2026)

The size and share of the Fingerprint Sensor Market were estimated at USD 3.6 Billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 14.92 % to USD 6.7 Billion by 2026.

After the introduction of the iPhone 5S, which had a Touch ID capacitive system, the market caught the attention of smartphone manufacturers. Since then, many other next-generation models have integrated fingerprint sensors that have attracted customers.

FingerprSamdigitizatione biometric security devices. These are now being used in the police stations, security sectors and, most recently, computers. Because they vary from person to person, fingerprints have become the perfect means of identification.

Recent Developments of Fingerprint Sensor Market:

Samsung's most awaited 2019 flagship, the Galaxy S10+, sports an ultra-sound in-display fingerprint sensor. The latest generation of biometric technologies is designed to work well in all lighting conditions. In reality, it claims to perform better with dusty and muddy fingerprints. It is believed to be more accurate and consistent than the optical sensors that we have on the currently available in-display fingerprint sensor devices.

Industry Drivers

  • The increasing complexity of Fingerprint Sensor technology has enabled extensive adoption of the Fingerprint Sensors across multiple markets, which is expected to be a key driver for the global Fingerprint Sensor market during the forecast period.

  • A balanced spending flow for product development, as well as research efforts in the Fingerprint Sensor by many tech companies, has been a significant boost for the global market

  • The high adaptation of technology into most require government bodies and digitization of time and attendance in many companies and schools fuel the fingerprint sensor market forward.

Key Restraints

  • The availability of other alternatives such as facial recognition sensors and people's adoption towards more cooling and faster technology can be considered as a restraint to the market.
  • The crowded market with constant innovations from crucial players can also be considered as a small restraint to the fingerprint sensor market.

Fingerprint Sensor Market

Market Segmentation & Sub-segmentation for the Fingerprint Sensor Market with size, forecast until 2025.

Fingerprint Sensor Market - By Application

Based on the Application, the Fingerprint Sensor market is segmented into Banking and Finance, Government, Commercial, Consumer Electronics, and Other Applications. Increasing the use of fingerprint sensors in smartphones to perform tasks such as unlocking phones & apps and making payments is expected to increase the growth of the fingerprint sensor industry. Growing security and privacy issues in laptops, as well as attempts by OEMs to provide flexible security features for wearables, are some of the key factors influencing the growth of the business. Continuous advances in consumer electronics' fingerprint scanning technology also fuel market growth.

Fingerprint Sensor Market - By Technology

Based on the technology, the Fingerprint Sensor market is segmented into, Capacitive, Optical, Ultrasonic, and Thermal. 

Optical scanners use a digital camera to take a picture of the fingerprint. Capacitive or CMOS scanners use capacitors and therefore electric current to form a fingerprint image. Ultrasound fingerprint scanners use high-frequency sound waves to reach the epidermal (outer) layer of the skin. Thermal scanners measure temperature differences on the touch layer between the fingerprint ridges and the valleys.

Capacitive sensors are more reliable and are expected to contribute to a significant part of the market for fingerprint sensors, as many smartphones and other electronic devices are adopting these scanners. Such sensors use tiny capacitors to collect fingerprint data, record fingerprint details using the electrical charge generated by the capacitors, and store and analyze specific and distinctive fingerprint attributes. 

Such scanners are difficult to manipulate using prosthetics, as the information from the scanner is difficult to replicate. Optical fingerprint scanners are the first software used to capture and compare fingerprint data. Such types of scanners capture a visual object like a camera and use algorithms to identify different patterns, such as the darkest and brightest areas of the image. Such sensors capture a 2D object and are therefore less stable and will be subject to low adoption.
