Market Highlights

The market is projected to demonstrate a remarkable growth by 2027, surpassing its previous growth records in terms of value  from USD 13.19 billion in 2018 to USD 26.75 billion by 2023, with a striking 18.33% CAGR during the anticipated period (2016 – 2027).

Market  Overview

Due to the rapid adoption by government of a fingerprint based authentication system through portable application, the fingerprint sensor market is increasing with a double digit CAGR. The major growth driver on the market for fingerprint sensors includes the demand for security checks in organisations, the value of physical access control solution, and the smartphone and tablet market among others. Furthermore, the growing market growth of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and other portable devices involves the use of fingerprint sensors in order to protect data privacy and access protection. Internet-based online and mobile ecommerce options have further enhanced fingerprint sensor demand. However, factors such as lack of knowledge of security and the difficulty of smartphone integration such as devices with fingerprint sensors can hamper market growth According to a recent Market Research Future study report , the global fingerprint sensor market is booming and expected to gain prominence over the forecast period. Morevoer the increased adoption of fingerprint sensors in the BFSI sector is expected to significantly propel the market over the review period.

The development of less expensive fingerprint sensors for a wide range of applications presents tremendous market opportunities. There is a rise in the adoption of integrated fingerprint sensors based on two-factor authentication systems or multi-factor authentication systems that can provide high-tech security and access for high-end security applications.
