Smart Card Market in Latin America to Grow at a CAGR of 8.8 % by 2019; Finds New Report

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Smart Card Market in Latin America 2015-2019” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2015 -- A smart card is a pocket-sized card, generally made of plastic, and is embedded with integrated circuits, also known as microchips. Smart cards are used for security purposes for authentication, identification, data storage, and application processing. They are widely used in sectors such as BFSI, Government, Transportation, Healthcare, and Defense. These cards are broadly classified into two types: contact-based and contactless. Contact-based smart cards have a contact area of approximately 1 square cm. These cards are used by inserting into a smart card reader. On the other hand, contactless smart cards are used by employing radio frequency between cards and a reader, which needs no physical insertion of the cards. Therefore, contactless smart cards have faster applications and are more user-friendly than contact-based smart cards.

Analysts forecast the Smart Card market in Latin America to grow at a CAGR of 8.8 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Analyst said: "The increased adoption of near- field communication payments is a major trend emerging in this market. With growing awareness of NFC payment solutions, the adoption of smart cards by the BFSI sector is increasing. NFC-enabled mobile devices operate in card emulation mode for mobile contactless payments. Therefore, they are being widely adopted by some of the emerging sectors."

According to the report, the entry of prominent global vendors in developing countries is one of the major drivers of growth. As Latin America lacks local players with expertise, it is the global players who control the market in this region. This leads to a high degree of competition among vendors, which forces them to offer smart cards at nominal rates.
