Globally, biometric fingerprint technology is experiencing increased adoption across industries. Integration of fingerprint sensors in smartphones, tablets, and other Internet of Things (IoT) devices is spurring exponential market growth. Enhanced security, ease of use, and advanced capabilities are making fingerprint sensors popular additions to consumer electronics and subsequently causing a convergence of applications across industries. For example, mobile devices with embedded fingerprint sensors are now used for online banking, payments, time and attendance, and personal identification.
Government and law enforcement agencies use fingerprint sensors and scanners extensively for various applications. Banks and financial services companies use fingerprint technology as well; for instance, smart cards fitted with fingerprint readers are popular in banking and payment applications. Other industries adopting fingerprint biometrics are healthcare; private enterprises for time, attendance, and access control; retail; hospitality; and education. The automotive and smart home sectors are emerging as major adopters of biometric technology, and they will create high demand in the mid-to-long term.
