Global NFC Chips Market: Snapshot

The global near field communication (NFC chips) market is anticipated to witness a tremendous growth in the period from 2016 to 2024 on account of the versatility and convenience of NFC chips. These chips also provide enhanced safety, driving their demand. The growing need for secure transactions can be felt worldwide and this is boosting the growth of the NFC chips market. NFC requires PIN and does not provide retailers with credit card information about users and thus, more secure. Also, the use of NFC causes no hassle and is easy to use for wide range of applications such as contactless payments, for providing authentication of information when required, and for information sharing. It is thus, no wonder that NFC is replacing other short range communication technologies such as Bluetooth. The growing adoption of NFC technology in smart phones and smart cameras is slated to fuel the growth of the NFC chips market in the years to come.

High Demand for Efficiency and Quick Accessibility to Drive Demand

There is a need for efficiency and reliable mode of information sharing and this is driving the adoption of NFC chips. The requirement of faster access to data across industries is also a key factor behind the growing popularity of near field communication technology. The growing advancements and investments by players within the market are expected to help the market to grow within the forecast period. The decreasing rates of NFC chips on account of the declining prices of various materials required for the manufacturing of these chips will make it very profitable for NFC market players. The increasing demand for connectivity between devices for information or data sharing will help the market to grow further. The growing adoption of online payments is another key factor boosting the growth of this market.
