Global Smart Card Market in Telecom Sector 2015-2019

About Smart Card

Smart card is a pocket-sized card, generally made of plastic, which is embedded with integrated circuits or microchips. It is used for authentication, identification, data storage, and application processing. Smart cards are classified into two types: contact-based and contactless. Contact-based smart cards have a contact area of approximately 1 square cm. These cards are inserted into the smart card reader. Contactless smart cards are embedded with integrated circuits that process and store data and communicate with a terminal via radio frequencies. These cards are used by employing a radio frequency between card and the reader that needs no physical insertion of the card. Therefore, contactless smart cards have faster applications and are user-friendly. Contactless smart cards are widely accepted and used by some of the major sectors such as BFSI, Government, Transportation, Healthcare, and Defense.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Smart Card market in the Telecom sector to grow at a CAGR of 4.98 percent over the period 2014-2019.
