NFC Market To Upsurge at 13.9% CAGR By 2032 Report By DataHorizzon Research

NFC market growth is projected to be positive during the forecast period.

Fort Collins, Colorado, Feb. 20, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NFC Market size was valued at USD 24.8 Billion in 2022 and is expected to reach a market size of USD 90.7 Billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 13.9%. 

Near Field Communication, or NFC, is a three-decade-old technology that enables short-range communication between two electronic devices that are a few centimeters (up to 4 cm) apart. Although it has been around for a long time, its demand increased significantly through COVID-19 as the world switched to digital contactless payment systems. The most common NFC-enabled devices include smartphones, laptops, tablets, and wearable devices.

Novel innovations have enabled wireless charging of small Internet of Technology (IoT) devices such as wearables, smart glasses, and stylus. Such innovation offers benefits to smartphone users, such as charging at ease of convenience, enabling them to be independent of cumbersome wired accessories. Increasing purchases of smartphones and usage of online payment are expected to drive NFC demand over the next few years. Pre-programmed NFC tags can store specific data such as Wi-Fi connection details, indoor lighting timers, website links, and business cards, which an enabled device can access. Some major global brands have tapped this opportunity in marketing their products and services.

NFC tags can be placed on products, billboards, and other retail spaces, allowing customers to interact and obtain more information about certain products/services. Chatbots linked to such tags can be a helpful strategy in addressing in-store customer queries, specifically during peak footfalls such as the festive season and weekends. NFC technology offers dual benefits to corporates, specifically in the retail sector. It enriches the customers’ shopping experience and offers valuable data, which is key to understanding shopping behavior and offers further opportunities to improve customer experience. KFC, a global fast-food restaurant, launched NFC-based campaigns to attract local customers to their nearby restaurants and pay for their food orders via Android and Samsung Pay. Other corporate giants using this technology include Adidas (footwear), Ralph Lauren (fashion), and Lexus (automotive).
