Contactless Smart Card Shipments to Exceed a Billion in 2014

The number of contactless smart cards shipping per annum is projected to break the one billion mark in 2014. The government and healthcare sector is the largest contactless application for smart cards, having been traditionally driven by shipments of contactless memory cards into China’s national ID programme.

However, the report, produced by IMS Research, forecasts that in the future it will comprise a growing number of smaller schemes employing microcontroller-based cards, such as driver’s licenses, healthcare, national ID and e-passports around the world.

According to the report analyst, Don Tait, “The market for contactless is set to nearly double between 2008 and 2014 as the three largest end-user sectors, government and healthcare ID, transportation and payment and banking cards, all see contactless gain more traction.”
