Fingerprint Sensors for Mobile and Consumer Applications
Market Research Report

* Fingerprint sensors in mobile and consumer applications are predominantly used for user login, mobile banking and payment, access control, privacy lock and user authentication
* Led by Apple and Samsung, the fingerprint sensor market is expected to grow four times by 2020
* In 2009 the global biometric market was $2.3B and in 2017 fingerprint sensors in smartphones alone is forecasted to reach $8.8B
* 4.5M smartphones with fingerprint sensors were shipped in 2012, 45.7M units in 2013 and a forecasted 1.6B units by 2020
* Fingerprint sensors in cell phones started appearing about 10 years ago when Fujitsu and later Motorola started integrating swipe type sensors more as a novelty

  11. 11. 27 Fingerprint Sensors for Mobile and Consumer Applications | Market Research Report | mr@memsjournal.com Copyright 2016 MEMS Journal, Inc. | All rights reserved. | Proprietary and confidential. | www.memsjournal.com A variety of trends and forces are impacting the fingerprint sensor industry and its players Consumer Demand Biometric Identification Technology Advances Technology Challenges Unit Cost Mobile Commerce Fingerprint sensors have long been available on laptops for secure user authentication. In smartphones, fingerprint sensors have gone from being “gimmicky” to become a must have. Simplified and secure user login as well as support for authenticating mobile payments are differentiated features for smartphones with fingerprint sensors. In mobile and consumer devices that increasingly maintain sensitive user data, there is a need for “failure proof” user authentication that is more secure than pass codes and passwords. Fingerprint sensing is less costly and easier to use than many other biometric applications. They are relatively easy to configure and use. Apple’s integration of a fast and accurate touch fingerprint sensor in the iPhone 5s sparked a flurry of innovation by competitors trying to catch up. Suppliers are focusing on faster, smaller and lower- cost solutions. New technologies like ultrasonic versions promise solutions that can be more seamlessly integrated and read through dirt or water on fingers. Capacitive sensors are sensitive to contamination and need a “window” to the outside world. Alternative technologies are trying to address these short- comings. There are also trade-offs between size and accuracy. The preferred touch sensor must cover a certain area of the finger to be accurate and this limits the size and unit cost. With ASPs over $5, fingerprint sensor modules can only be implemented in high-end devices. Chipsets can be procured for less ($3), but added third-party assembly makes it too expensive for low-end smartphones. The inflection point for low-end smartphones in Asia is $50-100, with BOMs less than $45-$80. These markets require an ASP of $1-$1.5. The future of mobile commerce is in your hand, in the form of a wireless device. Consumers are increasingly using their smart devices to perform online purchases and use banking services. User authorization of mobile payments need secure user authentication, which could be in the form of secure biometric identification systems like fingerprint sensors. Sources: See following pages
