Global Fingerprint Sensor Market: Snapshot
Recently, the Indian Government made it mandatory to have a unique identity card to all Indian residents. This decision warrants the verification of each personal identity. The data collected include a combination of biometrics such as fingerprints and iris impression. Every individual human fingerprints are unique, that makes them suitable for unique human identity.
A fingerprint sensor captures the exact biological feature of a fingerprint and compares it with the existing biometric template stored in the database to provide authentication to the user. Fingerprint sensors act as the brain for secure communication and transactional devices. The most common instance of a finger sensor is Apple Touch ID. The sensor is made up of multiple layers of pyroelectric material that detect the finger temperature translates into a change in the capacity distribution of its surface. Ultrasonic sensors uses piezoelectric material to measure sound waves. Capacitive sensors are electric fingerprint sensors.
According to a recent business intelligence report released by IndustryARC, the global fingerprint sensor market was valued to be $4 billion to $5 billion as of 2018, and it is projected to grow with a staggering CAGR of 14% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025.
