Selbyville, Delaware, June 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Global Market Insights Inc. has recently added a new report on the smart card market which estimates the market valuation for smart card will cross US$ 75 billion by 2027. The rising residential and non-residential construction across the globe is set to spur industry growth. Additionally, emerging applications of dry mix mortar in the commercial and infrastructural sectors due to its cost-effectiveness and excellent workability are expected to offer new growth opportunities to the industry.

There is a growing adoption of dual-interfaced smart cards with highly secure dual interfaces and larger memory requirements than a standard card. They are embedded with a single chip that can be accessed either through an embedded antenna or contact pads. These smart cards enhance security, reduce frauds, and enable secure access to the card's chip with either contactless or contact smart card interfaces. Players focusing on innovating their smart card portfolio will boost the market growth. For instance, in February 2019, Gemalto N.V. announced the integration of fingerprint technology to optimize the performance of its dual interface payment cards. This move helped the company to offer biometric EMV payment cards to bank customers for safe & secure payment transactions.

The expanding retail industry will propel the demand for advanced payment acceptance techniques as retailers focus on enhancing customer satisfaction. Small retailers still are increasingly adopting card readers to ensure customer convenience. Large malls and supermarkets are using integrated systems that enable them to accept a wide range of payment options while also focusing on loyalty programs to ensure customer retention. Retailers are increasingly adopting smart card readers that help them to ensure fast transactions. For instance, in May 2020, Shopify’s tap and chip card that features contactless or tap payments for credit and debit cards was launched in Canada. This enables Canadian retailers to offer customers more options to pay by accepting contactless Interac Flash payments, Mastercard , American Express , Visa , Alphabet Pay, and Apple Pay.

The government efforts targeted at improving the digital infrastructure in the Middle East & Africa will fuel the smart card market growth. In November 2020, IDEMIA launched the Middle East’s first contactless full metal dual interface payment card. The government in Saudi Arabia is making efforts to move toward a cashless economy. In September 2020, 91% of all POS transactions in the region were contactless while around 266 million transactions valued at USD 8 billion were NFC. The growing penetration of digitalization will result in increasing use of smart cards for several applications including access control, authentication, and financial transactions.

Some major findings of the smart card market report are:

  • Biometrics is fast gaining traction as a reliable payment method for bank and payment service providers to reduce fraud across both traditional and emerging payment channels. The payment industry in Europe and the U.S. continues to encourage payment authentication techniques that improve on traditional methods and enhance user experience. This factor will fuel the biometric smart card market growth.

  • There is a high demand for contactless smart cards since the outbreak of the pandemic. Increasing number of consumers are preferring contactless payment techniques to prevent the spread of the virus through bank notes.

  • Smart ticketing has gained traction across several developed and developing regions, with the growing penetration of digitalization across several industry verticals. Transportation authorities are implementing advanced ticketing technology to ensure fast transactions and streamline operations. Rapid urbanization has stressed the existing transportation system, encouraging authorities to upgrade the infrastructure. This has propelled the demand for high-quality smart card readers.

  • Increasing demand for security and convenience in transactions is driving the smart card market growth. NFC is a secure contactless card technology in which the card connects with NFC-enabled reader to complete a transaction. Mobile payment service providers are partnering with payment card networks to ensure smooth transaction process.

  • The advent of digitalization in Asia Pacific will offer strong growth opportunities to the smart card market. There is an increasing use of smart cards for user authentication and cashless transactions that ensure user convenience.
