Smart cards are integrated chip-based cards that store and retrieve information with the help of various computer systems. They contain central processing units and memory units. Smart cards are cost-effective means to store, maintain, and manage credentials of users. As a result, these cards are widely used across various sectors such as BFSI, telecommunications, and government.
The report states that the decline in prices of SIM cards and the increasing trend of migrating to EMV standards has fuelled the adoption of smart cards across various end-use sectors. Rise in data thefts through fraudulent activities has further led to the surging demand for secure and expedited transactions, and identification and communication solutions. These factors have augmented the growth of the global smart cards market. However, initial high cost to migrate to smart card compatible readers will affect the adoption of smart cards. The overall smart cards market has a huge opportunity to grow with the introduction of high-end SIMs.
In terms of types of smart cards, the report categorizes the global smart cards market into contactless smart card, contact smart card, dual-interface smart card, and hybrid smart card. During the forecast horizon, contactless smart cards are expected to lose market share to contactless and other card types. Contactless smart cards offer a technology platform for the addition of new applications to access control systems and facilitate more secured identity verification. Additional security features offered by contactless and dual interface smart cards have led to their increased adoption as e-IDs, ATM/credit/debit cards, transportation IDs, and others. In 2014, contactless smart cards accounted for 18.6% of the market revenue. During the forecast horizon, this card segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 11.5%.
