Fingerprint sensor are devices used for fingerprint detection. They capture biological features in the form of scan. These devices are integrated with fingerprint detection module and are used for safety and authentication purposes. Basic features of fingerprint sensor includes image collection and chip algorithm that saves data efficiently which in turn is totally dependent exclusively on the type and quality of product used in fingerprint biometric system. Fingerprint working principle mainly depends on processing, it includes two units, namely matching and enrollment. Further, it results in supplying advanced security to the important details and information of an individual. It converts fingerprint in a digital code which in turn results in unlocking the recipient information. Fingerprint sensor are implemented in various devices such as tablets, phones, laptops, smart watches and so on. These devices are cost efficient, seamlessly fast and safe and reliable to use. Furthermore, growing safety breaches around the globe has led to the growth of the technology. These devices are less expensive when compared to other biometric authentication systems.
Increasing usage of fingerprint sensors by law and government enforcement agencies to enhance safety and security drives the global fingerprint sensor market. Further, growing adoption of biometric system for attendance system in government and corporate organizations for counting the working hours of the service for the productivity of the employee’s fuels up the market growth. Introduction of optical fingerprint sensor in mobile phones, government investments for the acceptance of fingerprint sensors and the usage of biometrics in commercial use are the major factors driving the growth of the market. However, biometric database and security threats along with high cost of installation is anticipated to pose threat to the market. Furthermore, new rising trends towards IoT based biometric technology and growing adoption of in-display fingerprint sensors in mobile phones is attributed to offer significant opportunities worldwide.
COVID-19 pandemic has spread across 215 countries worldwide affecting various industries worldwide. As the world is continuously fighting this crisis, various industries are experiencing constant decline. Due to temporary lockdowns across various countries companies are facing acute cash flow issues. Slowing down and halting of manufacturing processes of fingerprint sensors along with disruption in supply chain logistics worldwide owing to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, have resulted in declining growth of the market. The new regulations that consist of working from home and social distancing has created major challenges with regular work, daily activities, supplies and needs creating delay and missed opportunities. It is impacting the overall economy and society across the world.
