About Contactless Smart Cards

Smart cards are pocket-sized cards that are embedded with integrated circuits. These smart cards can be used for individual identification and authentication by organizations in various sectors, including banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI); transportation; government; and healthcare. Furthermore, these smart cards can be used by enterprises to provide authorized access to individuals within secured premises to ensure data security. Smart cards can be also used for enhancing various applications, such as payments and transit ticketing, as they increase efficiency for the end-user.

Smart cards can be segmented into contact-based and contactless smart cards.
Contact-based smart cards have a contact area that provides electrical connectivity when inserted into the card reader. These readers act as a communication medium between the point of sale system or computer and the smart card. Contactless smart cards use radio frequency (RF) technology for communication between a contactless smart card and the card reader. Thus, for data and information transfer between contactless smart cards and card readers, it is important for contactless smart cards to be in proximity to an antenna.

The analysts forecast the global contactless smart cards market to grow at a CAGR of 32.94% during the period 2016-2020.

New Report Released: – Global Contactless Smart Cards Market 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Contactless Smart Cards Market: Gemalto, Giesecke & Devrient, Oberthur Technologies, Safran, and Watchdata.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Advanced Card Systems, CardLogix, DataCard, Infineon Technologies, NXP Semiconductors, Secura Key, Sony FeliCa, and SpringCard.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “With advances in technology, a number of vendors, such as Gemalto, are providing multi-application smart cards. These smart cards that reduce the use of multiple cards for different applications are a combination of contactless and contact interfaces on a single card. They prevent the need for individuals to carry multiple cards for different applications since these cards have shared storage and information processing. For example, Blue from American Express provides extra security while online shopping and ticketing.”

According to the report, smart cards with magnetic tapes store financial information about end-users. However, these cards can be easily tampered with, resulting in loss of information or data. This also increases the chances of identity theft. Contactless smart cards with PIN codes are difficult to tamper with. This increases the safety of card holders' accounts, providing better security.

Further, the report states that high initial deployment and replacement cost is a major challenge for contactless smart card end-users.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
