Global fingerprint sensors market is forecast to jump up to $14.35 billion in 2020. Rapid technological developments, increasing demand for simple and secured access for users to their devices, mobile commerce, and high adoption rates of smartphones are the major drivers for such a high growth of the fingerprint sensors market. The fingerprint sensors market is estimated to grow at CAGR of 16.8% from 2014 to 2020. This escalation is developing the need to analyze, review, and to forecast the growth of the fingerprint sensors market. Fingerprint sensing technologies are, at present, more reliable and cost effective than all the other existing biometric technologies, which has diverted the attention of all the leading biometrics manufacturers across the world.
The research published on global fingerprint sensors market (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/291399-fingerprint-sensors-market-by-type-swipe-and-area-material-optical-prism-pizeoelectric-capacitiveand-adhesives-application-mobile-devices-government-defense-healthcare-commercial-security-and-banking-finance.html) covers different technologies such as optical, capacitive, thermal, and ultrasound that are witnessing rapid technological developments, which has improved the performance of fingerprint sensors. Technological improvements have increased the robustness of area sensors but manufacturing challenges have restrained their mass manufacturing and, as a result, the market price of an area sensor is as much as three times of the market price of a swipe sensor. There are several important trends that have been driving the technological innovations in the industry since its early days, and which, directly or indirectly, are driving the fingerprint sensors market, currently. The major trend that is driving the market is the size reduction of the fingerprint sensors, which enables their integration into mobile phone devices without sacrificing other functionalities.
The study elucidates the situation of fingerprint sensors in mobile devices markets, and shows application market of fingerprint sensors in smartphones, tablets, laptops, gaming consoles, and wearable devices, along with accurate market metrics. The study clarifies that, currently, the fingerprint applications’ market size is highest for laptops but it is set to be overtaken by fingerprint applications’ market size for smartphones by 2020, which is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 56.4% from 2014 to 2020.
Lastly, the fingerprint sensors market research study is segmented on the basis of geography into North Americas, Europe, the Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (ROW).
