Today, using biometrics for authentication purpose provides greater convenience and reliability. Fingerprint sensors are the leading biometric technology in consumer electronics, equipped with secured authentication system. In recent times, smartphones, tablets, and PDAs are becoming the most indispensable gadget of our everyday lives. Fingerprint sensors enable fast, secure, and reliable access to smartphone as lots of personal information like contacts, payment details, texts, location data, and mails are stored in some kind of encrypted form on the phone. The research published on fingerprint sensors covers different technologies such as optical, capacitive, thermal, and ultrasound that are witnessing rapid technological developments, which has improved the performance of fingerprint sensors. Technological improvements have increased the robustness of area sensors but manufacturing challenges have restrained their mass manufacturing and, as a result, the market price of an area sensor is as much as three times of the market price of a swipe sensor. There are several important trends that have been driving the technological innovations in the industry since its early days, and which, directly or indirectly, are driving the fingerprint sensors market, currently. The major trend that is driving the market is the size reduction of the fingerprint sensors, which enables their integration into mobile phone devices without sacrificing other functionalities.

The study elucidates the situation of fingerprint sensors in mobile devices markets, and shows application market of fingerprint sensors in smartphones, tablets, laptops, gaming consoles, and wearable devices, along with accurate market metrics. The study clarifies that, currently, the fingerprint applications' market size is highest for laptops but it is set to be overtaken by fingerprint applications' market size for smartphones by 2020, which is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 56.4% from 2014 to 2020.

Lastly, the fingerprint sensors market research study is segmented on the basis of geography into North Americas, Europe, the Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (ROW). Among these, the U.S., Germany, Japan, China, U.K., and South Korea are the highest market sharing countries in the fingerprint sensors market.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
