In-display Fingerprint Sensors Market By Sensing Technology Type (Optical In-display Fingerprint Sensor, Ultrasonic In-display Fingerprint Sensor and Capacitive In-display Fingerprint Sensor) – Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2019 - 2027

Continued Emphasis on Biometric Authentication Techniques to Bolster the Demand for In-Display Fingerprint Sensors

The market for in-display fingerprint sensors reached a value of US$ 672.7 million in 2018 and is expected to grow at a promising rate from 2019 to 2027.

Biometric authentication techniques for user authentication are more secure and easier to use than a typed password. Among the technologies available, fingerprint sensing strikes the sweet spot through convenience and security.

Instead of remembering a strong password, biometric identification techniques enable users to swipe a finger for identity authentication. Approximately 50% of smartphone shipments will have an in-display fingerprint sensor by 2020.

In-display fingerprint scanners are more than just a gimmick to unlock the phone; they also conveniently authorize money transactions with a swipe of the finger. With a growing array of application areas, in-display fingerprint sensors are expected to witness promising demand across the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

Capacitive In-Display Fingerprint Sensors Accounted for the Lion Share of the Overall Market

In 2018, capacitive in-display fingerprint sensors dominated the overall in-display fingerprint sensor market. Due to their low cost and compact size, capacitive in-display fingerprint sensors are one of the most commonly found technologies in the latest smartphones.

Capacitive fingerprint sensors gather fingerprint images by measuring the difference in capacitance across the fingerprint ridges and valleys and the sensor.

Capacitors enable the storage of electrical charge by connecting up to conductive plates on the surface of the scanner, which allows it to be used to track the details of a fingerprint.

The result of these sensors is non-replicable with any image and is incredibly tough to fool with prosthetics, as different materials record different changes in charge at the capacitor. With growing advancements in capacitive technology, the segment is expected to grow at a promising rate across the forecast period.

Asia Pacific to Emerge as the Fastest Growing Regional Market

Presently, Asia Pacific is growing at a higher rate and is expected to retain its position across the forecast period. Market growth here is mainly propelled by the rapidly increasing number of smartphone users across the region. In 2018, overall smartphone penetration in Asia Pacific reached 35.7%, up from 29.5% in 2016.

It is further expected to hit 43.2% penetration in 2021, accounting for 1.85 billion smartphone users. Similarly, internet penetration across the total population is driving the demand for advanced smartphones.

In 2018, internet penetration accounted for 88.1% of South Korea, 83.3% of Taiwan, and 81.6% of Japan. High demand for smartphones is subsequently expected to drive the growth of in-display fingerprint sensors across the region.
