Research and Markets: Credit Card EMV Issuance and POS Reterminalization in the United States - Preparing for 2015: The Year of the Liability Shift

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5665mx/preparing_for) has announced the addition of the "Preparing for 2015: The Year of the Liability Shift" report to their offering.

Credit card issuers are gearing up for a fourth quarter that will likely mark the kickoff of widespread EMV issuance. Card manufacturers are adding capacity to meet demand, and all sources indicate that the EMV train is finally leaving the station.

The data breaches that occurred during the 2013 holiday season set the context for 2014 product strategy in many areas of the payments industry. However, no decisions have been affected more than those relating to EMV. Industry participants have spent 2014 defining, and in some cases implementing, their migration strategies. A completely operational EMV environment is likely several years away, but progress is being made.

The report projects that 58% of credit cards and 26% of point-of-sale (POS) terminals will be EMV-compliant by the end of 2015.

The research note, Preparing for 2015: The Year of the Liability Shift, explains the author's outlook for credit card EMV issuance and POS reterminalization in the United States. It also discusses several EMV-related issues such as chip and PIN, contactless and private-label issuance, as well as the potential impact of card network liability shifts.

Issuers and merchants both appear to be taking EMV migration in stride, which is to say that they are incorporating it into routine card and terminal refresh cycles, comments Michael Misasi, Senior Analyst and the primary author of the research note. Looming regulatory issues and rumors that liability shifts would be extended have prevented merchants from getting the head start necessary to match financial institutions' EMV reissuance. Both groups will be ramping up their EMV efforts around the same time.

Factors considered as influencing EMV credit card issuance include:

  • Issuers' willingness to stray from typical credit card refresh cycles
  • Potential EMV card supply constraints
  • Previously announced issuer migration plans
  • Timeline for BIN certification and EMV pilots before general issuance
  • Card network liability shifts
  • Incremental costs associated with PIN and/or contactless support
  • Competitive forces in the industry
  • Increased customer service issues
  • Future regulatory action
  • Past and future data breaches

Factors considered as influencing EMV acceptance include:

  • Merchants' willingness to will stray from typical POS terminal refresh cycles
  • Number of inactive EMV terminals already in the market
  • EMV certification and testing timelines
  • Previously announced merchant migration plans
  • Possible expansion of the addressable market for consumer-facing terminals after EMV migration
  • Card network liability shifts
  • Number of terminals located at merchants that Mercator Advisory Group has identified as being particularly likely for prompt conversions
  • Need for co-brand credit card reissuance
  • Uncertainty around debit EMV issuance and acceptance procedures
  • Competitive forces in the industry
  • Future regulatory action
  • Disruption in checkout process

Highlights of the research note include:

  • Projected EMV credit card issuance and POS reterminalization
  • Projected EMV compliant credit card transaction volume
  • Analysis of recent and forthcoming disruption related to the industry's EMV migration.
  • Discussion of trends related to credit issuance such as chip and PIN, contactless, private label
  • Analysis of how EMV production capacity could impact the reissuance process

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
