Global Fingerprint Sensors Market to Reach US$ 12.4 Billion by 2027, Bolstered by Increasing Integration in Smart Devices

Published on Sep 15, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Fingerprint Sensors Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global fingerprint sensors market size reached US$ 5.15 Billion in 2021. Fingerprint sensors are vital components of electronic security systems that rely on fingerprints for biometric authentication and granting the user access to a device, information or approve transactions. These sensors also provide fast, reliable, and easy access to personal contact details, emails, personal information, and location. They are convenient, cost-effective, facilitate record-keeping and assist in managing attendance portals. Consequently, they are widely adopted in the consumer electronics, aerospace, government and law enforcement, healthcare, defense and military, travel and immigration, and banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) sectors across the globe.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Fingerprint Sensors Market Trends:

At present, the leading smart device manufacturers are focusing on the integration of fingerprint sensors as they assist users in logging in with a single touch. These sensors increase security, eliminate the use of PIN codes, patterns and passwords, and minimize threats related to hacking and misuse of sensitive data. They are also used to strengthen the authentication process and to offer secure access control in several organizations. This, in confluence with the increasing sales of smartphones, is positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the rising incidences of security breaches are also driving the fingerprint sensors market. Furthermore, the incorporation of advanced technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), to provide a personalized user experience is fostering the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 12.4 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 16.42% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
