WiseGuyReports published new report, titled “Global Fingerprint Sensors Market Outlook”

Market Overview

Rising demand for biometric identification and authorization in different verticals to maintain privacy and security is enhancing the demand for fingerprint sensors globally. By the end of 2024, more than 70 percent of all transactions are expected to be performed via biometric authentication, primarily via fingerprint sensors in mobile devices. In October 2016, NEC Corporation introduced world's first fingerprint sensing device prototype which is capable of capturing fingerprint images of newborns and infants. Similarly, in 2015, Synaptics introduced “Natural ID” which provides smaller touch area to support high end mobile devices. Chinese technology manufacturer Goodix launched its fingerprint reader which can be embedded within the screens of smartphones. Companies such as Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, LG, ZTE and ASUS phones are currently using Goodix fingerprint sensors. These innovations are raising the market competitiveness which is likely to fuel the expansion of fingerprint sensors business.

Successive collaborations between mobile device manufacturers and fingerprint sensors manufacturers is also expected to bring new business opportunities for fingerprint sensors market. For instance, in 2014, Apple Inc. acquired LuxVue Technology Corporation, a low-power, micro LED-based displays electronics applications manufacturer. With this acquisition, Apple aims to substitute iPhone’s home button with fingerprint-scanning screen.
