COVID-19 Impact on Fingerprint Sensor Market Dynamics

Driver: Emergence of biometric smartcards in BFSI applications

Government, banking and finance, and healthcare are likely to be other key application areas for biometric cards wherein digital security and authentication are of utmost importance. To ensure a secure transaction, financial institutions and banks are involved in extensive testing of payment cards in which fingerprint sensors are used. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people are shifting toward the use of biometric smartcards for transactions to reduce the use of cash. The governments across the world, too, are vouching for contactless financial cards and are increasing the payment cap for contactless transactions to allow more people to make purchases without touching a keypad or payment terminal.

Restraint: Health concerns related to the use of fingerprint sensors amid COVID-19 pandemic

As fingerprint scanner is a contact biometric technology, government authorities around the world are looking to reduce its usage as health concerns related to their use are growing due to an exponential rise in COVID-19 cases. Organizations are shifting toward contactless technologies, such as facial and iris recognition or contactless smart card access systems, as these technologies do not require the person to touch any surface. The facial recognition technology also offers thermal scanning to check body temperatures and thus minimizes the risk of spreading COVID-19 to others. Thus, health concerns related to the use of fingerprint sensors amid the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to be the major factor restraining market growth.

Opportunity: Increasing demand for laptops and notebooks due to COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the way companies work. The majority of employers across the world have asked employees to work from home as a preventive measure to curb the spread of COVID-19. This has increased the demand for laptops and notebooks. Various companies in the fingerprint sensor market are experiencing increasing demand for sensors for applications in notebooks and laptops. Companies, especially in IT businesses, are looking to make permanent options for the majority of their employees in the next few years. This is expected to fuel the demand for laptops and notebooks in the coming years and consequently create lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the fingerprint sensors market.

Challenge: Government restrictions pertaining to COVID-19 lockdown

Governments across various major economies have enforced lockdowns to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. With lockdown in place, the manufacturing activities have been affected significantly. The global manufacturing PMI slumped from 47.3 in March 2020 to 39.7 in April 2020. Governments across the world have come up with different regulations during the lockdown. For instance, the Indian government had closed down all non-essential manufacturing plants from the end of March 2020 to early May 2020. This included the closure of plants of various smartphone players, such as Xiaomi, Samsung, Oppo, and Vivo. Thus, government restrictions during COVID-19 lockdowns are expected to be the major challenge for the manufacturing sector. However, with ease in lockdown in countries such as China, India, the US, and Spain, the manufacturing sector is expected to pick up gradually in the coming months.

Optical fingerprint technology is expected to witness the highest market growth during the forecast period

The fingerprint sensor market for optical fingerprint technology is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Optical sensors create fingerprint images by using light and converting it into electrical signals. This technology uses the light-emitting phosphor layer to capture the fingerprint by illuminating the surface via total internal reflection. Various smartphone manufacturers are launching new products with optical in-display fingerprint sensors. A lot of new product launches have been seen in Q12020, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, and a similar trend is expected to be seen during the forecast period, which in turn, will drive the market for optical technology.

Banking and finance application is expected to witness the largest market growth during the forecast period

In the banking and finance sector, fingerprint sensor devices are acting as game-changers. The COVID-19 pandemic has fueled the growth of the biometric payment cards market. The WHO has advised to avoid the use of cash and switch to contactless payment options to curb the spread of coronavirus. People across the world are reducing physical cash usage to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Various companies have noted that public health concerns have created more interest in contactless biometric payment solutions and expect the demand for biometric financial cards to increase in the coming years. This is expected to drive the market for banking and finance applications during the forecast period.

APAC is the leading fingerprint sensor market, globally, by value, in 2019

The market in APAC is expected to register the highest CAGR from 2020–2025. APAC presents huge opportunities for the fingerprint sensor device market owing to the growing demand for these devices in numerous verticals, including consumer electronics, automotive, and commercial sectors in Asian countries such as China, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, and India. Rising deployment of fingerprint sensors in consumer electronics, especially in smartphones, has fueled the growth of the fingerprint sensor market in APAC. Key markets in APAC include China, Japan, India, and South Korea. China is playing a significant role in the growth of the fingerprint sensor market in APAC as a few of the key smartphone manufacturers, including Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo, are headquartered in China.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic is expected to impact the global biometric industry. The entire supply chain is disrupted due to the limited supply of components. Chinese suppliers around the globe have placed production lines on halt or shut them down completely. Also, legal and trade restrictions, such as sealed borders, increase the shortage of required components. Such disruptions in the supply chain are expected to affect the assembly of OEMs in APAC, Europe, and North America.
