Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 23, 2014
An NFC-enabled device can operate in reader/writer, peer-to-peer or card emulation modes. While making mobile contactless payments, NFC-enabled mobile devices operate in a card emulation mode that appears as a traditional contactless smart card to an external reader. A smart card chip in mobile devices helps store payment information, protects them, and enables secure transactions. Contactless payments and ticketing using NFC-enabled devices allow secure monetary transactions. The increase in the adoption of NFC-based payments is thus supporting the growth of the Global Contactless Smart Cards market.
Analysts forecast the Global Contactless Smart Card market will grow at a CAGR of 33.5 percent during the period 2013-2018. According to the report, the growth of the Global Contactless Smart Cards market is driven by several factors, of which the growing need for a tamper-free system is one of the major drivers. Generally, cards embedded with magnetic tapes only store information about end-users' accounts. These cards can be easily tampered with, resulting in loss of information or data. However, contactless smart cards store information that can only be accessed with a pin code, which is difficult to decode, thereby protecting end-users' data.
