Europe Fingerprint Sensor Market has been increasing steadily for the last few years and the author estimates that it will increase further in the coming years. This increase in the market is because of various reasons including application of this technology in various domains. The different sectors in which technology is used are healthcare, defence, financial services etc.

Europe is a big market for smart phones. The penetration of smartphones is very high, estimated to be more than 50%, with UK estimated to have 66% as per the survey by Ofcom in 2012. This makes new smart phones more aggressive in including more and more features. This is where the companies have started including features like fingerprint sensor to make the devices more attractive. Apple has also introduced Apple Pay which uses this technology to safely pay for shopping being done. The features like these were once thought to come in the distant future but are already there currently and the market is just growing.

These sensors are being used in the healthcare sector also. They are being used by the hospitals and nursing homes to record the patients that they admit and also for the outpatient department. This helps the hospital to bill the correct patient when the patient is discharged and also helps them thwart false medical claims. It is being installed in blood banks to store the records of the donor when he donates his blood for the first time. So, whenever the donor returns all the details will be saved in the database and also in the case of emergencies specific donors can be called to donate.

The technology is based on the fact that the fingerprint of each person is unique. These sensors capture an image of the fingerprint and then scan it at specific places. However there is a lack of awareness of this technology among the general population to use this feature for different applications. This trend should change in the period to come with the increase in the adoption of these sensors in consumer electronics. This will help the consumers to get more knowledge of how these sensors can be used in daily life applications.

The author classifies the market based on the use of various types of sensors like optical sensors, thermal sensors, pressure sensor, RF sensors, and ultrasonic sensors; apart from geography, applications and end-user industry. In addition this report also talks about the new technological trends in the European Fingerprint Sensor Industry.
