Global Fingerprint Sensors Market Overview

The Fingerprint Sensors Market Size was valued at USD 2.92 Billion in 2022. The Fingerprint Sensors industry is projected to grow from USD 4.07 Billion in 2023 to USD 14.47 Billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.27% during the forecast period (2023 - 2030). Fingerprint sensors are biometric devices used to capture and analyze the unique ridge patterns on the surface of an individual's finger. These sensors can be used to authenticate a person's identity, allowing access to secure systems or data, and they are commonly found in smartphones, laptops, and other electronic devices. There are several different types of fingerprint sensors, including optical sensors, capacitive sensors, and ultrasound sensors. Each type of sensor has its strengths and weaknesses, and the type of sensor used will depend on the specific requirements of the application.Fingerprint Sensors Market OverviewSource: Secondary Research, Primary Research, MRFR Database, and Analyst Review

Fingerprint Sensors Market Trends

  • The increasing penetration of connected technology and IoT

With the growing trend toward connected technology and the Internet of Things (IoT), there has been an increase in the demand for secure and convenient authentication methods. This has led to a growing market for fingerprint sensors, which provide a high level of security and ease of use for users. As more devices become connected and the amount of sensitive personal data stored on these devices continues to grow, there is a growing need for secure authentication methods that can protect this data from unauthorized access. Fingerprint sensors meet this demand, offering a convenient and secure way to verify a user's identity and protect sensitive information. In addition, the increasing popularity of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, has also contributed to the growth of the fingerprint sensor market. These devices are commonly used to store personal and sensitive information, and many now come equipped with fingerprint sensors as a convenient and secure way to authenticate users. Overall, the increasing penetration of connected technology and IoT, combined with the growing demand for secure and convenient authentication methods, is expected to drive continued growth in the fingerprint sensors market.

Fingerprint Sensors Market Segment Insights

Fingerprint Sensors Type Insights

The market segmentation, based on Type, includes Area & Touch Sensor, and Swipe Sensor. The Area & Touch Sensor segment holds the majority share in 2022 of the market. In addition to being smaller and more affordable, touch sensors are also getting easier to use. These sensors are preferred by OEMs over swipe sensors, particularly in mobile devices that need smaller sensors to produce more compact goods that are desired by market end consumers.

Fingerprint Sensors Technology Insights

Based on Technology, the market segmentation includes Capacitive, Optical, Thermal, and Others. The Optical segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the market. In terms of technology, optical sensors are replacing capacitive touchscreen sensors in the majority of devices while ultrasonic fingerprint sensors are being used in luxury smartphones. Due to the rising need for sensor integration in displays, capacitive sensors have been replaced.

Fingerprint Sensors Application Insights

Based on Application, the market segmentation includes Consumer Electronics, Government & Law Enforcement, Military & Defense, BFSI, Smart Homes, Healthcare, Aerospace, and Commercial. The Government & Law Enforcement segment dominated the market in 2022.
