Global Near Field Communication (NFC) Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Application (Contactless Payment, Booking, Sharing of Information/Data, and Others) By Product (Non-Auxiliary Products, and Auxiliary Products) By Device (Smartphones, PC & Laptops, and Others) Forecast, 2021-2027
The global NFC market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 14.1% during the forecast period. NFC is a form of wireless communication between devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and so on. The NFC technology is used for short-range (up to 10 cm) communication and data sharing. NFC utilizes electromagnetic radio fields while other technologies such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are focused on radio transmissions. NFC technology enables contactless communication which allows a user to send information by waving the smartphone over an NFC-compatible device without needing to touch the devices. Furthermore, NFC technology has also enabled the trend of contactless payments. Contactless payments are widely popular in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada. Further, NFC payments more secure than EMV or chip card payments. Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, PayPal, and Android Pay are all examples of NFC payments.
The high use of smartphones along with the increasing trend of M-commerce are the main factors that are driving the market growth. Further, continuous development in NFC technology has also a significant contribution to the market. However, high-security concerns and the high cost of deployment are expected to hinder the growth of the near-field communication market. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the market has experienced growth owing to the increase in sign-ups for new payment procedures and the increased number of smartphones user. People were unable to go outside due to the lockdown imposed by the respective state governments, due to this the online payment transfer for essentials has surged. That led to the high use of these technologies. Hence market has registered growth.
The global NFC market is segmented based on application, product, and device. Based on application, the market is segmented into contactless payment, booking, sharing of information/data, and healthcare monitoring. Based on products, the market is segmented into two main categories which include auxiliary and non-auxiliary products. Auxiliary products include NFC Micro SD cards, NFC sim cards, and NFC software whereas non-auxiliary products include NFC controller IC'S, NFC tags, NFC readers, and NFC secure element. Whereas, based on device, the market is segmented into smartphones, PC & laptops, and others. Among these, the smartphone segment is anticipated to be the fastest growing owing to the increasing number of smartphone users and rising penetration of the internet.
