Fingerprint Cards has now shipped 1 billion fingerprint sensors worldwide


Fingerprint Cards announced today that it has now shipped 1 billion fingerprint sensors worldwide. The Swedish biometrics company reports that its sensors are now integrated into more than 330 smartphone models globally and also in a range of next-generation form factors for applications including access control, smart cards and IoT.

“This represents a major milestone for the company and the industry, demonstrating rapid consumer adoption of biometrics in recent years,” comments Phil Sealy, principal analyst at ABI Research. “We see sustained growth for the biometrics market in the coming years, driven by existing use cases like smartphones, and the rise of new applications like payment cards and connected cars. Fingerprint Cards will continue to play a significant role in enabling innovation in these areas, taking its significant biometric expertise and reapplying to new emerging use cases.”

Fingerprint Cards recently secured the world’s first volume order of fingerprint sensors for dual-interface biometric payment cards with Gemalto and also announced optical ‘in-display‘ fingerprint sensors for mobile. The company’s full portfolio also includes a touchless biometrics solution with iris and face recognition combined.

“This is a proud moment for us and the biometrics industry; proof of how far we’ve come in simplifying the lives of consumers every day, all over the world. But this is just the beginning,” said Christian Fredrikson, CEO at Fingerprint Cards. “As applications continue to arise and new technologies emerge, we’re committed to realizing our vision of truly seamless ‘all-in’ security, where you are the key to everything.”
