The near field communication (NFC) market is expected to reach USD 21.84 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 17.1% between 2015 and 2020.

NFC is a short-range communication technology that enables data transfer between two NFC-enabled devices. The data transfer includes cash transactions, device control, and many other applications. This report market covers the major segments namely operating modes (peer-to-peer, card emulation, and reader emulation), products & software, application industry, and region. The market size estimations for these segments are provided in this report; the key trends and market dynamics related to these segments are also covered under separate chapters for these segments.

Currently, the retail industry dominates the market because of the high demand for retail automation products, wherein NFC is the key technology. Furthermore, the automotive and residential & commercial industries are expected to grow at the highest CAGR among all other industries. The growth in these two industries is attributed to the growing adoption of smart devices and ease of communication. In the automotive industry, NFC enables hands-free communication and in-car infotainment. In the residential & commercial industry, NFC is beneficial for use in applications such as physical access, time & attendance, and automated lock system. These two industries exert a major impact on the market. These are emerging markets for the NFC technology and the consistent focus of the companies in these markets would impact the overall market.

This research study involves extensive use of secondary sources, directories, and databases (such as Hoovers, Bloomberg Business, Factiva, and OneSource) to identify and collect information useful for this study. The research methodology is explained below.

  • Analysis of all the industries using NFC technology across the globe
  • Analysis of various NFC-enabled electronic devices sold to these industries
  • Analysis of the penetration of NFC electronics devices sold to these industries considered for study
  • Estimation of percentage share of NFC chips, hardware, and software in various industries
  • Analyzing the market trends in various regions and countries, supported by the ongoing research & development in these respective regions
  • Overall market sizes finalized by triangulation with supply side data which includes the product developments, supply chain, and estimated sales of NFC devices

After arriving at the overall market size, the total market has been split into several segments and sub segments and confirmed with the key industry experts. The figure below shows the breakdown of primaries on the basis of company, designation, and region conducted during the research study.

The near field communication market is estimated to exhibit huge growth potential till 2020. The total market is expected to reach USD 21.84 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 17.1% between 2015 and 2020. The demand for NFC-enabled devices is growing at a tremendous rate and the transition from conventional ways of data transfer to intelligent technology would further boost the development of the market in the next five years. The decreasing prices of NFC chips, adoption of mobile commerce, growing volume of cashless transactions, and growing adoption of smart appliances are some of the major factors driving the market around the world.

Currently, the retail industry holds the largest share of the overall market. Factors such as growing non-cash transactions, NFC-enabled PoS terminals, and adoption of electronic shelf labels contribute to the largest market size of the retail industry. The automotive industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Factors such as demand for in-car infotainment and touchless controls are driving the NFC market in the automotive industry. Major automotive manufacturers focus on incorporating additional features in their cars to provide additional safety and control features to their customers.

The peer-to peer operating mode dominated the market. This operating mode enables two-way communication between two NFC-enabled devices. Given the growth of NFC mobile phones, this mode is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The market for non-auxiliary/in built products is largest as compared to the other products. Auxiliary products are built into the device to facilitate NFC communication. These products include chip and ICs that enable a product to interact using this technology. The major consumer electronics companies focus on incorporating in-built NFC features into their products, and this is the major reason for the largest market size of non-auxiliary products.

The Americas currently dominate the market in terms of market size and APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth of APAC is attributed to the growing shipments of mobile phones and the higher adoption of smart appliances in this region. The NFC market in APAC is in the emerging stage and the ongoing development in the region makes it a lucrative and high-potential market.
