Global Market for Fingerprint Sensor is Anticipated to grow at a Significant Pace i.e., USD 12.8 Billion during the Forecast Period 2025 - 2030

Published Date: Mar, 2024

The global fingerprint sensors market is expected to witness a CAGR of 15.2% during the forecast period. The fingerprint sensors market has expanded rapidly over the past few years, and it is likely to increase even further during the forecast period. Improved acceptance of smartphones, rising security applications, government initiatives to adopt biometrics and increasing developments by key players tend to be the key factors driving the demand for fingerprint sensors market globally. In November 2019, Fingerprint Cards announced that its technology had been combined into 400 different smartphone models. Previously in 2019, Fingerprints Card AB announced that it had distributed 1 billion fingerprint sensors worldwide and the company is observing increased acceptance of biometric technologies to recover the user experience and change PINs and passwords.

With the recent outbreak of COVID 19, the fingerprint sensor market is observing a weakening in growth due to various organizations and government establishments limiting the usage of biometric systems in their respective locations. For instance, in February 2020, South Korea banned the tradition of fingerprint scanners across all government and private organizations due to the COVID virus that is spread through touchpoints.
