Smart Card Market - Advanced Technologies, Application and Global Forecast (2008 – 2015)

With shipments of microprocessor- and memory-based smart cards reaching 5.2 billion in 2009, smart cards are now further embedded within everyday life for majority of consumers. It is being used in various sectors including financial services, retail, telecommunications, government ID, and transportation sectors. The telecommunication sector is the biggest application market for smart cards, accounting for more than 68% of the global smart card shipments in 2009. Growing number of mobile phone subscribers has been the largest contributor, driving sales of SIM cards globally. Use of smart cards in financial services sector has also been rising, supported by increasing migration of magnetic cards to EuroPay, MasterCard, and Visa standard (EMV) standard (chip and PIN) cards. The EMV standard mandates the use of smart cards in financial services such as credit/debit/ATM, and prepaid cards.

 

Smart Card Market

Globally, the major driving factors of the smart card market include increasing applications such as machine-to-machine communication, growing security and control needs, multiple uses and interoperability, increasing storage and processing capabilities, and reducing cost of the card. Growing use of online payment transactions is also supporting the market growth as smart cards enable consumers to make secure and reliable payments. Use of contactless smart cards in this regard has gained remarkable consideration (with an average year-over-year growth rate of 35% over last five years) and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 30% from 2010 to 2015.

The growth of allied devices (netbook PCs and GPS) and the emergence of Near Field Communication (NFC) will continue to fuel the growth of the smart card market in both volume and value. The migration to 3G for key markets such as China and India will bring large volume support for the future smart card industry. NFC and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications markets experience its early growth in 2010 in areas such as micropayments and automotive diagnostics respectively.
