Top Companies in the Fingerprint Sensor Industry

Top Companies in the Fingerprint Sensor Industry

The global fingerprint sensor market size reached US$ 6.0 Billion in 2022. A fingerprint sensor is a component of the biometric security system that scans an individual’s fingerprints to authenticate their identity. It provides authenticated users with secure and easy access to personal contact details, payment information, emails, location, and other types of encrypted data. It is fast, reliable, convenient, cost-effective, and can be seamlessly integrated into different devices. As a result, fingerprint sensors are widely adopted across electronics, government and law enforcement, aerospace, healthcare, defense and military, and travel and immigration industries.

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top fingerprint sensor companies are incorporating advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), to enhance the accuracy of the authentication process and provide a personalized user experience. They are also deploying their solutions in smartphones to expand their consumer base. For instance, IDEMIA launched a new generation of MorphoWave contactless fingerprint terminals in January 2022, using which users can wave their hands in an easy and quick gesture to have their four fingerprints 3D-scanned and authenticated in less than one second. Moreover, various key players are engaging in collaborations and partnerships to strengthen their foothold in the global market. For instance, Thales Group collaborated with Mastercard and Bank Pocztowy in January 2022 to launch biometric cards in Poland. Under this partnership, the bank issued the cards to its customers to deliver enhanced security and support distanced transactions. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 13.7 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
