Many major companies focus on the implementation of organic growth strategies such as product launches, and inorganic strategies such as agreements, partnerships, and collaborations to boost their revenues.

Top 2 Players in Fingerprint Sensor Market:

Fingerprint Cards (Sweden) was ranked first in the global fingerprint sensor market in 2017. It is one of the leading players in this market. It offers biometric systems including sensors, algorithms, software, and packaging technologies. The company offers a wide range of fingerprint sensors for various applications. It offers touch fingerprint sensors, swipe fingerprint sensors, area fingerprint sensors, and biometrics modules for smartphones, Tablets, smart cards, automotive applications, and the Internet of Things. Till January 2018, FPC’s touch sensors were featured in over 300 different smartphones models from more than 25 brands. For instance, in December 2017, Huawei (China) launched 2 new smartphones, Huawei Enjoy 7S and Honor 9 Lite, both with the touch sensors FPC1028 obtained from Fingerprint Cards.

Goodix (China) was ranked second in the overall fingerprint sensor market in 2017. The company offers fingerprint sensors and touch controllers for smartphones, Tablets, smart home devices, and Notebooks. It offers various fingerprint sensors for different applications. The company provides invisible fingerprint sensors, sapphire-covered fingerprint sensors, glass-covered fingerprint sensors, ceramic-covered fingerprint sensors, and in-display fingerprint sensors, among others. The company is the first IC designer in the world to develop, patent, and commercialize the Live Finger Detection technology applied to mobile devices. This technology seamlessly combines a capacitive fingerprint sensor and an optical sensor into one. This sensor is capable of detecting fingerprints, blood flow, and infrared signals for user authentication and rejecting the faked fingerprints. In March 2018, the company announced the commercialization of its optical in-display fingerprint sensors for Vivo’s (China) new flagship smartphone X21.
