SWOT analysis, Porter’s Five Forces analysis, market attractiveness, and value chain analysis are some of the industry tools adopted by the analysts in order to present a thoroughly-researched and well-balanced study of the global NFC-enabled phones and contactless smartcards market.
Overview of the NFC-Enabled Phones and Contactless Smartcards Market
NFC-enabled phones and contactless smartcards are used in a number of application areas including healthcare, consumer electronics, access control, information collection and exchange, payments, loyalty and coupons, and transport. Contactless smartcards and NFC-enabled phones allow for improved service delivery, reduction in queuing time, integration with existing cards, better customer insight, increased convenience in making payments of lower value, and increased revenue opportunity.
The multi-application support offered by NFC-enabled phones and contactless smartcards and rising interest in subscriber identity modules (SIM) is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global NFC-enabled phones and contactless smartcards market over the next few years. In contrast, security issues and high cost involved in setting up EPOS terminals threaten to restrict the growth of the worldwide market.
Innovations in smart chip technology and high penetration of smartphones have made North America and Europe the leading markets for NFC-enabled phones and contactless smartcards. Nevertheless, rising adoption of cashless payment options, supported by dense population, indicates that Asia Pacific will develop a strong hold over the global market in the coming years.
