Silicon-Based Fingerprint Sensors
The global market for Silicon-Based Fingerprint Sensors is projected to reach US$377.3 million by 2024, driven by the growing ubiquity of fingerprint recognition capabilities in mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and notebook PCs. The market stands to benefit from the expanding range of applications of fingerprint-based identification on the back of the development of low-cost, active-capacitance, silicon-based technology. Few of the reasons responsible for the rise of silicon fingerprint as the most successful biometrics based security technology include greater security unrivalled by voice, face, hand or iris; ease of use and elimination of the need to remember personal identification numbers or carry smart cards/ badges; compact form factors; low power consumption and cost effective. In addition to robust opportunities in biometric smartphones encouraged by the enterprise BYOD trend, strong growth is also expected to come from smart cars, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Few of the other broad market and technology forces influencing growth in the market include continuous technology innovations aimed at developing thinner and flexible fingerprint sensors and the resulting direct impact on end-use application expansion; increased deployment of electronic access control implementations in the enterprise, manufacturing and commercial sectors; stringent legislation of safety regulations and the ensuing compliance burden; growing opportunity for swipe sensors in next-generation miniaturized electronic devices; the growing global base of connected devices against the backdrop of the rise of Consumer IoT, Industrial IoT, Automotive IoT, Enterprise IoT, Healthcare IoT and the resulting need to secure these devices. Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 10.8% over the analysis period, led by factors such as growing need for safety and security in the newly digitalizing Asian economies and the ensuing integration of biometric security features in consumer electronics, automobiles and industrial equipment.
