Major steps taken by governments to endorse biometric technology for purpose of verification and identification has increased the demand for biometric technology in emerging countries such as India, Nigeria, Kenya, and others. Due to its uniqueness and hard-to-fake quality, biometric technology is used in various public and private offices for strengthening the data security. Among all the biometric technologies, fingerprint scanning is one of the earliest and most commonly used identification technologies. The increasing need of fingerprint scanner in security based system and access controls has a phenomenal impact on the security market. In fact, the old traditional method of ink and paper has been overtaken by the digital fingerprint scanner.
Major applications of fingerprint scanner include government and law enforcement, banking, and healthcare. However, in the next five years, the commercial application is expected to overtake the government and law enforcement market as the access controls used in offices and IT sector are being replaced by fingerprint scanners. Further, the market for smartphones having in-built fingerprint scanner is increasing rapidly as a large number of people today prefer in-built fingerprint scanner smartphones for payment authentication. Along with these, fingerprint scanners have been implemented in various applications such as education, home security, and others.
Fingerprint scanner is a revolutionary taxonomy of various fingerprint sensor technologies such as optical, capacitive, ultrasonic, thermal, pressure, RF, and MEMS. Of these, the optical fingerprint scanner and capacitive fingerprint scanner is the major revenue generator in the overall fingerprint scanner market. The optical fingerprint scanner is mostly used in government and law enforcement application due to its high accuracy, efficiency, effectiveness, and forensic quality image capturing property, whereas capacitive fingerprint scanner is widely used in smartphones and tablets. Border security and commercial buildings are rapidly adopting the fingerprint scanner in view of improvising on the levels of security measures, which is further pushing the market growth. However, the high cost of fingerprint scanners used for government and law enforcement is restraining the market growth.
The major driving factors for the fingerprint scanner market are rapid growth of the smartphones market, rise in standards, importance of government and law enforcement agencies, and increasing need for improved security measures in the banking sector. Meanwhile, the rise in adoption of fingerprint scanner in emerging countries is creating further opportunities for growth of the market. Also, the foray of high quality and more accurate sensor into the market is expected to further increase the standardization of the fingerprint scanner.
North America is currently dominating the fingerprint scanner market. However, Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to be the leader in the next five years due to the growing adoption of fingerprint scanner for government and law enforcement as well as in smartphones. Some of the major companies in the global fingerprint scanners market are 3M (U.S.), Anviz Global (U.S.), BIO-key (U.S.), CROSSMATCH (U.S.), HID Global Corporation (U.S.), NEC (Japan), Safran (France), and Synaptics (U.S.), among others.
