Research and Markets: Near Field Communication (NFC) Market - Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2019

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3mvdmb/near_field) has announced the addition of the "Near Field Communication (NFC) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.

The global NFC market was valued at USD 1,068.3 million in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 43.7% during the forecast period.

Worldwide, the shipment for NFC-enabled cellular handsets stood at 264.5 million units in 2013. The mobile phone and tablet manufacturers are increasingly including NFC features in their phones and this is expected to grow during the coming years. Further, most of the already existing point of sale (POS) and transportation systems across the globe use NFC technology, thus considerable infrastructure is already developed for the use of NFC -enabled devices. There is a lot of research being carried out in the NFC field which shows the commitment of industry players toward full scale implementation of NFC in coming future.

The products in NFC market include NFC controller ICs (chips), NFC tags, NFC readers and NFC secure elements. NFC chips enable transactions and data exchange without the need to pair the devices. NFC technology saves time in payment processing as the transaction gets conducted through radio frequency (RF); this is resulting in the increasing adoption of NFC chips. NFC tags are capable of storing small amounts of information. Customer satisfaction, easy communication and ease of use are some of the factors expected to drive the NFC tags market. NFC readers are the devices capable of reading data through the NFC-enabled devices when tapped. Secure elements store applications which perform security execution and authentication for access.

These products are finding applications in various areas such as payment (transaction), ticketing, booking, data sharing, service, authentication and access control, healthcare, and games and toys, among others. Furthermore, NFC complements and enhances advanced smart card driven applications such as payment, logistics & supply chain, public transport, customer loyalty program, point of sale (POS), access management and eGovernance. Number of new applications across various industries such as healthcare, and gaming and services is also leading to the growth of this market. NFC-based payment model is rapidly gaining momentum as it is anticipated to replace currently used debit and credit cards owing to better security features. Ease of use and improved security features are some of the reasons for the increasing adoption of NFC technology in newer application areas.

The global NFC market is categorized into the following segments:

Near Field Communication Market, by Product Type:

  • NFC Controller ICs (Chips)

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
