The global NFC chip market is valued at US$ 1.9 billion in 2023 and is predicted to progress at a CAGR of 15% from 2023 to 2033.
One of the key drivers of the near field communication (NFC) chip market is the increasing adoption of mobile payments across the world. Many people are now using their smartphones to make payments, and NFC technology is a key enabler of this trend. NFC-enabled smartphones can be used to make payments at point-of-sale terminals that support contactless payments, which is more convenient and secure than using cash or traditional payment methods.
Another factor boosting the sales of NFC chips is the development of the Internet of Things (IoT). NFC technology is being used in a wide range of IoT applications, from smart homes to connected cars. NFC-enabled devices can be used to exchange data and enable secure communication between devices, which is essential for many IoT applications.
Sales of NFC chips are experiencing tremendous growth, with increasing demand from various industries, including healthcare, retail, transportation, and finance. The healthcare industry is significantly using NFC technology for patient monitoring and remote healthcare services, while retailers are using it to improve the customer experience by offering several mobile payment options and personalized promotions.
