Semiconductor and Electronics Fingerprint Sensors Market

The fingerprint sensor market size is projected to grow from at a CAGR 14.29% rate during the forecast period. Factors such as extensive use of fingerprint sensors in consumer devices for biometric authentication, high adoption of biometrics by government bodies for enhanced security, and digitization in the time & attendance capturing are driving the industry.Optical fingerprint sensor technology likely to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. In-display fingerprint sensors are in demand by numerous smartphone brands, which is expected to provide opportunities for the optical fingerprint sensor market growth. An optical in-display fingerprint sensor uses an optical fingerprint sensor to capture the fingerprint data and is embedded under the phone’s screen. Goodix, Fingerprints, Synaptics, CrucialTec, and Q Technology are among the companies that offer optical fingerprint sensors.


Touch sensors to account for the largest market share during the forecast period. These sensors are used mainly in consumer devices such as smartphones and tablets. They are becoming increasingly smaller, more cost-effective, and convenient for use. OEMs prefer touch sensors over swipe sensors, particularly in mobile devices that demand smaller sensors, to produce miniaturized products preferred by end-users in the market.

APAC expected to account the largest share of the fingerprint sensor market during the forecast period. Factors such as presence of leading smartphone OEMs such as Samsung, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi in China; rising adoption of biometrics systems in retail and enterprises; need to reduce incidents of fraud and provide secure access to physical & logical assets in commercial applications; increased awareness of the benefits of using fingerprint sensing technology among the masses, and cost-effectiveness of these sensors drives the growth of market in APAC.
