Near Field Communication Industry - Research Study and Future Prospects 2022

Posted by Akash Sangshetti on March 3rd, 2020

Global Near Field Communication Industry   - Overview

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless connectivity standard that uses magnetic field induction to enable communication between devices when they're touched together, or brought within a few centimetres of each other. Both businesses and individuals benefit from near field communication technology. By integrating credit cards, subway tickets, and paper coupons all into one device, a customer can board a train, pay for groceries, redeem coupons or store loyalty points, and even exchange contact information all with the wave of a smartphone. Faster transaction times mean less waiting in line and happier customers.

Due to growing adoption of near field communication technology in smartphones and similar devices the market for near field communication is growing rapidly. Due to its ease of use and accuracy, the demand for near field communication has increased in the recent past.

NFC offers better collaboration in corporate environments by ensuring speedy and secure sharing of documents, files, and confidential data. In case of payments, the card details of the consumer are stored on the mobile phone in a secure element. This takes the form of a Subscriber Identity Module, secured chips or a secure digital card and the fact that hardware encryption can be only used in close proximity to the point of sale makes it one of the most secure payments. This feature acts a major pull factor to attract new customers and users of NFC technology and technology-enabled devices. Owing to these factors, NFC market growth is likely to witness a positive impact over the forecast period.

The near field communication Industry is expected to reach USD 30 billion by the end of the forecast period at 17% CAGR.
