In the wake of its acquisition of capacitive fingerprint sensor maker AuthenTec in mid-2012, Apple rolled out iPhone 5S that incorporates an embedded capacitive fingerprint sensor in 2013 and gained intense media attention. Later, the HTC Max and the Samsung Galaxy S5 were released and both embraced a fingerprint sensor similar to the iPhone 5S. 

Fingerprint sensor technology is not the first time being used on mobile phones though. Key factors affecting the adoption of fingerprint sensors are whether its ecosystem will take shape and whether it will become a common feature on mobile phones. This report summarizes how capacitive fingerprint sensors have evolved, and examines how the industry\'s supply chain collaborates.
