NFC is a wireless technology used for short-range wireless communication techniques allowing devices to share information within a proximity of 4cm or less. NFC technology allows to share small payloads of data or initiate a connection between two Android-powered devices or between NFC tag and Android-powered devices.

In this wireless technology, radio communication is established between devices by bringing them into required proximity or touching them simultaneously. Attributed to this, NFC is increasingly gaining popularity as an effective alternative to other short-range communication technologies such as Wifi and Bluetooth.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has favored the growth in the NFC market. Due to the fear of getting infected, wireless payment solutions such as touch-and-go credit cards or debit cards were increasingly being used by customers for in-store payment in retail stores. As NFC is extensively being incorporated in such contactless payment devices, rising adoption of wireless payment solutions is expected to bolster the growth in the market.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading NFC Market Growth?

NFC technology is gaining huge traction owing to its numerous advantages such as versatility, safety, convenience. The technology is much more safe and secure for transaction in comparison to other payment solution as they require a PIN or does not offer physical access of credit or debit card information to retailers.

On account of this, the NFC technology is finding a wide range of applications such as information sharing, contactless payments, providing authentication, and information reading from smart posters among others. This is expected to augment the growth in the NFC market.

In addition, increasing penetration of the internet has led to a significant rise in sales of smartphones, tablets, laptops, and others. For instance, according to a study by the GSM Association, around 323 Mn people in North America are reported to be using smartphones, accounting for nearly 81% of the region’s population in 2020. As NFC technology is increasingly being incorporated in novel smartphones, growing sales of these devices are expected to fuel the demand in the market.

What are the Challenges Faced by the NFC Market?

NFC technology needs installing numerous hardware, software, and constants maintenance for providing seamless & error-free wireless transactions to customers, which is highly expensive for small and medium size enterprises and retailers.

Increasing customer inclination towards adopting alternative wireless payment solutions such as UPI, QR scans payments, and online payment getaways are posing challenges for the growth in the NFC market.

In addition, inability to work in more than 12cm distances and offer low data transfer rates, and extravagant costs of NFC-enabled devices, as compared to Bluetooth and Wifi, are factors hindering the sales in the market.

How is North America Contributing to Growth of the NFC Market?

Future Market Insights reveals that North America is anticipated to account for the lion’s share in the global NFC market between 2022 and 2032.

A significant rise in sales of automotive vehicles such as passenger cars and commercial vehicles is being witnessed across the U.S and Canada resulting in creating strong demand for associated technologies. For instance, according to the Bureau to Transportation Statistics, approximately 3.54 Mn units of passenger cars and 10.33 Mn units of commercial vehicles were reported to be sold across the U.S. alone in 2019.

As innovative technologies such as NFC are increasingly being used in infotainment systems which are incorporated in novel automobiles, this rise in sales of automobiles is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities in the market.

Also, growing penetration of smartphones and increasing adoption of smart cameras, owing to surging trend of photography among millennials is favoring the demand for wireless data transfers technologies such as NFC in the North America market.
