The COVID-19 epidemic has had a small impact on the growth of the fingerprint sensor market. From a regional point of view, the outbreak of COVID-19 has led to a sharp decline in the export-oriented economy due to the temporary closure of manufacturing plants. Aside from the problems related to exports and imports, the growth of the manufacturing industry in Germany was hampered by the closure of the manufacturing industry and the decline in production to accommodate the distribution of COVID-19. Due to the closure, major smartphone companies such as Samsung, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi, had suspended production of smartphones for more than 30 days. As Lockdown closure limits are narrowing in various APAC countries, the fingerprint sensor market is expected to gain momentum in the next two segments. Consumer electronics, including products such as smartphones and smart homes, have become a luxury and a great necessity. This segment, which includes apparels, laptops, desktops, and other electronic devices, has had an impact, as production has slowed down due to disruptions in the global supply chain, including China, the largest OEMs base in the region. From a consumer standpoint, there is an increase in the use of smartphones and other technology, which promotes the expansion of the fingerprint industry.

Based on Type, the fingerprint market is segmented into Swipe Sensors and Area and Touch Sensors. Area and touch sensors are widely used in consumer electronics as these sensors offer a high level of accuracy and precision, thus capturing a large market share. Touch sensors are becoming smaller and more expensive and easier to use. OEMs prefer these sensors over swipe sensors, especially to mobile devices that require smaller sensors to gain integrated products as they are popular with end users in the market.

Based on Technology, the fingerprint market is segmented into Optical, Ultrasonic, Capacitive and Thermal. Ultrasonic sensors read the epidermal skin layer and skin membrane, capturing fine details. Therefore, these sensors can read wet fingers and toes with broken skin or damaged skin. Advances in sensor technology are expected to accelerate the growth of the ultrasonic finger sensor market

Based on Sensor Technology, the fingerprint market is segmented into 2D and 3D.

The market for 2D sensor technology is expected to reach high valuation. 2D sensor technology well suited to perform various detection and operations. Technology is always the preferred choice for OEMs because of its low cost, especially for mobile devices that require less sensors, to produce smaller products that are preferred by end users in the market. However, the 3D fingerprint market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR at the time of forecasting. 3D data provides the most accurate representation of real fingerprints.

Based on Application, the fingerprint market is segmented into Travel and Immigration, Commercial, Automotive, Healthcare, Consumer Electronics, Government and Law Enforcement, Banking & Finance, Smart Homes, Military, Defense, and Aerospace and Others. The consumer electronics application is likely to face a huge market size of fingerprint sensors in the coming years mainly due to the increasing demand for these sensors in consumer devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and notebooks. Consumer IoT devices are expected to provide market opportunities during forecasting.


The key players in the fingerprint sensor market are Shenzhen Goodix Technology, Synaptics Incorporated, Apple, NEC Corporation, IDEX Biometrics ASA, Fingerprint Cards, Qualcomm Technologies, Thales Group, IDEMIA, HID Global Corporation and other companies.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
