NFC Market Drivers
Adoption of Wearables to Drive Market Demand
Government efforts to tackle child deaths by being left alone in cars has been a major issue and led to development of software. For instance, the Hyundai Group had developed the Rear Occupant Alert system for providing alerts to car owners in case of passengers in the back seat. Improvement in rating points of cars according to European regulators due to presence of near field communications can lead to high adoption and bolster market demand significantly.

Rise of Mobile Commerce to Provide Opportunities
Mobile commerce is expanding owing to convenience provided to users to make payments through mobile phones as well as adequate support given to banks. Large number of smartphone users as well as number of businesses supporting point-of-sale (POS) machines can drive market demand significantly. In addition, use of retail stores in malls to dole out alerts through NFC to interested users can lead to high footfall.

Security Concerns with Short-range Communications to Hamper Market Growth
NFC does have not possess adequate security protocols for safeguarding user information. Transfer of malware applications via contactless payment methods can be a major cause for hesitancy among users. In addition, the need to be within a distance of 4cm or less is another issue for users. Alternatives such as Wi-Fi can pose to be a huge threat to market growth.
