Smart cards are used to perform functions such as identification, authentication, data storage and application processing within certain restricted area. Smart cards are also useful in providing security authentication within large organizations. Recently, powered smart cards have gain importance in the market owing to its wide range of function and advantages over normal smart cards. In case of powered smart cards power for the embedded chip comes from onboard thin-film or printable battery attached with the smart card. Addition of battery power to the smart cards is added advantage of powered smart card which makes it easier to manufacture. Added onboard power on the powered smart card enables the card manufacturing companies to integrate information display medium with the smart card. Printable battery or thin-film batteries are majorly applied with the smart powered smart cards. Printable battery embedded powered smart cards are expected to dominate the market in the forecasted period. Display technology used in the powered smart cards includes liquid crystal displays (LCDs), light emitting diode (LED) display, electrophoretic display (EPDs) or electochromic display.
On the bases of authentication, the global powered smart card market can be bifurcated into one-time password (OTP) cards, gift and customer loyalty cards, identification cards or medical information cards. Recently powered smart cards have gained its importance in the field of healthcare and commercial sectors. Other end-users of powered smart cards may include educational institutes, governments and private sectors, airports and other restricted areas.
North America has the largest market share for powered smart card, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. The U.S. is the largest market for powered smart cards owing to advancements in the end-user industries in the region. North America is expected maintain its dominance in the forecasted period, Europe is expected to show marginal growth. However, Asia Pacific region is expected to witness highest growth in the coming future.
Advancement in the technology paired with added feature of powered smart cards over normal smart cards is driving the global powered smart cards market. Also, with rising urban population, demand for better security is expected to increase. Additionally, investment in the betterment of infrastructure facilities is further expected to demand better security equipments, providing ample growth opportunities for the global powered smart cards. For infrastructure development, the U.K government's public sector investment is expected to rise by USD 4.9 billion to about USD 77.7 billion in 2013-14 over 2012-13. It is further expected to increase to about USD 83.0 billion in 2014-15. In 2014, Abu Dhabi Government approved an investment of USD 10.2 billion to enhance the infrastructure and economic growth of the nation.
