Global Fingerprint Phone Sales Forecast by Placement

by Neil Mawston | Jul 21, 2017

According to our EDS (Devices) service, fingerprint-detection is a popular method of secure-authentication in cellphones, led by Apple, Samsung, Huawei and others. We forecast handsets with fingerprint sensors to grow a healthy +35% worldwide in 2017, driven by fast penetration to lower pricepoints. Backside placement will grow to be the most-used positioning option.

Our innovative report -- available to clients here -- forecasts worldwide sales of fingerprint phones by sensor-placement location, such as behind-glass, from 2004 through 2022.

The report can be used by operators, handset vendors, component suppliers and others to determine or prioritize the size and growth rate of the global fingerprint phone market.
