The NFC POS terminal market in the MEA is expected to grow from US$ 261.4 million in 2019 to US$ 980.1 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 18.3% from 2020 to 2027. Increase in preference for NFC-compatible smartphones for payment among global population is bolstering the growth of the market. While Near Field Communication or NFC, was jointly developed by Philips and Sony in the mid-2000s, the technology has evolved for various uses over the years. Smartphone penetration is at an all-time high, with 3.4 billion active smartphones in the world today. There are 2 billion devices that can be NFC-enabled, mostly tablets. One of the key factors contributing to the Europe NFC POS terminal market growth is the increase in penetration of NFC-based mobile handsets. Increasing use of NFC-enabled smartphones is likely to improve the use of NFC POS terminals in the transportation, retail, and healthcare industries for payments and digital exchange. Use of NFC payment infrastructure and popularity of NFC as a preferred payment mode for customers are fueling the growth of the market.

The NFC POS terminal market is seeing a rise in penetration of NFC POS terminals for ticketing transactions in the transportation field. Customer tendency to use NFC-enabled smart cards in automated fare collections is likely to fuel the growth of the Europe NFC POS terminal market. In order to achieve short-range communication between electronic devices, the NFC technology offers high compatibility among platforms for easier and simpler transaction processes.

NFC technology offers a high degree of customer satisfaction and experience compared to its alternatives, as it is swift, which is influencing the demand for NFC POS systems. Value-added POS terminal services - such as loyalty cards and discounts - would ensure a smooth experience for consumers, thereby driving the NFC POS terminal market. The availability and integration of NFC technology into smartphones and POS terminals would help to achieve access control and ticketing benefits. The best ticketing fare can be determined by modernized POS terminals based on travel duration, discounts, and previous journeys, resulting in many advantages for consumers and transport authorities, which is further driving the demand for NFC POS terminal. The increment in adoption of NFC POS solutions in the retail sector is among the other factors expected to positively influence their demand.

Based on product type, the fixed segment led the NFC POS terminal market in 2019. Fixed type is the traditional POS system deployed on counters or reception areas. It is complex in nature and it requires continuous power supply. Moreover, the maintenance cost is high. Fixed type allows the companies to have the benefits of robust management solutions such as strong inventory management and business functionality, a cash drawer, and the capability to handle the loyalty programs and gift cards. In the past, fixed type has been the most recognized and accepted way to process cash payments, checks, and debit/credit cards. Fixed type is still a preferred product within brick-and-mortar stores, and it is a wide-ranging business management solution for merchants desiring a product with strong features. This, in turn, is ultimately driving the NFC POS terminal market.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Morocco, and Kuwait are among the major countries in the Middle East and African region facing the economic consequences of COVID-19 outbreak. With the COVID-19 pandemic spreading through the countries mentioned above, it is becoming clear that few can escape its impact, presenting major challenges for all sectors. According to studies, the GCC countries have experienced a hike of 500% of online sales due to COVID-19. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the e-commerce market emerged as one of the resilient industries in the region. People have been avoiding public locations, including supermarkets, since the onset of the health crisis, and making their purchases online instead. This shift in online sales is, thus, expected to negatively affect the NFC POS terminal market in the region over the forecast period.
