Global Smart Card Market

The rising demand for electronic payment methods is rapidly replacing cash transactions due to its secure and reliable operations. The demand for smart cards in retail, financial, hotels, and hospitals is accelerating, as they help in storing data on loyalty cards, thereby driving the growth of the smart card market globally. Moreover, the process allows faster transactions and decreases the checkout time. These benefits will fuel the market scope over the estimated timeframe. However, the high cost of shifting to smart cards, technical challenges faced by retailers or business, and the risk of losing contactless cards may hinder the smart card market growth. Additionally, due to the reduced fees, smart card companies are witnessing fee pressure, which will eventually impact the net revenues of these companies. To compensate for the speed pressure, smart cards vendors are introducing high-speed SIMs with LTE and NFC technology, which, in turn, will escalate the demand for smart cards, thereby triggering the smart card market growth.

The global smart card market is segmented based on type, component, and application. The type segment is divided into contact and contact less. Contactless cards are expected to grow at a considerable rate in the future as they are extensively used by the financial sector. Moreover, contact-based smart cards are extensively used in BFSI, healthcare, government, and retail sectors, thereby contributing notably toward this segment’s growth. The component segment includes hardware, smart card, readers, software, and services. The hardware segment is predicted to hold the largest share of the smart card market over the forecast time period. Application segment is sectored into BFSI, government, telecommunication, healthcare, hospitality, transportation, retail, and others.

The region offers a wide range of smart card solutions for organizations, educational institutions, and companies. Moreover, the United Arab Emirates is among the leading ID card printers, which also offers customer loyalty card printing solutions and unique E-purses. Companies in the Middle East are installing access control technology to extend the capabilities of smart cards or phones, which enables consumers to unlock doors and access common activity areas at the workplace.
