Global Fingerprint Sensor Market to Reach US$ 20.1 Billion by 2032, Propelled by the Increasing Need for Enhanced Security Measures

April 11, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

The latest report by IMARC, titled “Fingerprint Sensor Market Report by Type (Area and Touch Sensors, Swipe Sensors), Technology (Capacitive, Optical, Thermal, and Others), Application (Consumer Electronics, Government and Law Enforcement, Military, Defense and Aerospace, Travel and Immigration, Banking and Finance, Healthcare, Smart Homes, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global fingerprint sensor market size reached US$ 6.8 Billion in 2023. Fingerprint sensor refers to a biometric technology used to capture and authenticate an individual's fingerprint for access control and identification purposes. It works by scanning and analyzing the unique ridges and patterns on a person's fingerprint, which are then compared against a pre-existing database to determine if a match exists. It is commonly used in a variety of applications, such as mobile devices, laptops, door locks, and time and attendance systems. Fingerprint sensor also offers several advantages over traditional authentication methods, such as passwords and PINs, as they are more secure, convenient, and difficult to replicate. Fingerprint sensor is becoming increasingly popular due to its ease of use, high accuracy, and cost-effectiveness. In recent years, fingerprint sensors are gaining traction as they are also an essential component of modern biometric security systems, offering a reliable and secure way to authenticate individuals and protect sensitive data and systems. 

Global Fingerprint Sensor Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the increasing need for enhanced security measures in various industries, such as banking, healthcare and government, as fingerprint sensors offer a highly secure and convenient method of authentication. Additionally, the rising adoption of mobile devices and the growing use of fingerprint sensors in smartphones and tablets are creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, these sensors provide a quick and secure way for users to unlock their devices and access their personal data, thus positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, the development of advanced technologies, such as capacitive and optical fingerprint sensors, is increasing the accuracy and reliability of fingerprint recognition, making it more suitable for high-security applications. In line with this, the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the increasing demand for connected devices are encouraging individuals to opt for fingerprint sensors in smart homes, wearables, and other IoT applications, where secure and convenient authentication is essential. Furthermore, the focus on reducing fraud and improving security in the financial industry is escalating the demand for biometric authentication, including fingerprint sensors, to protect sensitive data and prevent financial crimes. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 20.1 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 12.4% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
