Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2015 -- Report forecast the Global Smart Card market in the Government sector to grow at a CAGR of 10.2 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Smart card is a pocket-sized card, generally made of plastic, which is embedded with integrated circuits or microchips. It is used for authentication, identification, data storage, and application processing. Smart cards are classified into two types: contact-based and contactless. Contact-based smart cards have a contact area of approximately 1 square cm. These cards are inserted into the smart card reader. Contactless smart cards are embedded with integrated circuits that process and store data and communicate with a terminal via radio frequencies. These cards are used by employing a radio frequency between card and the reader that needs no physical insertion of the card. Therefore, contactless smart cards have faster applications and are user-friendly. Contactless smart cards are widely accepted and used by some of the major sectors such as BFSI, Government, Transportation, Healthcare, and Defense.

This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Smart Card market in the Government sector for the period 2015-2019. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of smart cards in the Government sector, though it does not include revenue generated from the sales of contactless smart cards in the same.

According to the lead analyst of this report,the availability of twin smart cards is a key trend witnessed in the market. Twin smart cards, also known as hybrid cards, eliminate the need to carry multiple cards, thus providing ease of handling.

According to the report, the increased use of smart cards in the defense sector is a major driver in the market. The need for advanced levels of security is high because of the increased number of terrorist attacks. As a result, defense agencies of developed countries have employed smart cards for identification and access control.
