Fast Market Research announces the availability of the new TechNavio report, "Global Contactless Smart Cards Market 2016-2020 ", on their comprehensive research portal


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/17/2016 -- Smart cards are pocket-sized cards that are embedded with integrated circuits. These smart cards can be used for individual identification and authentication by organizations in various sectors, including banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI); transportation; government; and healthcare. Furthermore, these smart cards can be used by enterprises to provide authorized access to individuals within secured premises to ensure data security. Smart cards can be also used for enhancing various applications, such as payments and transit ticketing, as they increase efficiency for the end-user.

Smart cards can be segmented into contact-based and contactless smart cards.

Contact-based smart cards have a contact area that provides electrical connectivity when inserted into the card reader. These readers act as a communication medium between the point of sale system or computer and the smart card. Contactless smart cards use radio frequency (RF) technology for communication between a contactless smart card and the card reader. Thus, for data and information transfer between contactless smart cards and card readers, it is important for contactless smart cards to be in proximity to an antenna.
