The global contactless Payment market was valued at US$7.391 billion in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 26.57% over the forecast period to reach US$30.380 billion by 2023.

Contactless Payment refers to a secure payment method for consumers to purchase products using debit, credit, smartcards or chip cards using radio frequency identification (RFID) or near-field communication (NFC) technology. The transaction sizes of these cards are limited owing to the non-requirement of a signature or a PIN. The amount of transaction varies from bank to bank and also country wise as well. Apple Pay, android pay and google wallet are some of the examples of the non-credit or debit card contactless payments. The major drivers include reduced transaction time, convenience and security for making low or high-value transactions. On the other hand, high installation costs of the Point-of-Sale (POS) machines for contactless payments as compared to the normal POS machines is expected to hamper the market growth. Europe is expected to show the highest growth rate during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is foreseen to show an increase in the adoption rate of the contactless payment solutions over the projected period.
