NFC ICs and Devices

NFC has been described by some as a technology in waiting. Although NFC technology was developed some years ago, the complex ecosystem has slowed the commercial deployment of NFC offerings and services. Over the past 12 months there have been some major developments and announcements that have brought much needed confidence and further belief to the NFC market and reinforced the success that NFC is expected to achieve. NFC integration is occurring in many consumer electronic devices and is seeing increased interest from other industries, including the security, healthcare, and automotive markets. Despite the attractiveness of the technology, and although major developments have been made over the past 12 months, there are still many unanswered questions concerning NFC. Stakeholders are unsure as to how they will generate clear revenue streams (outside of payments) from the offerings of NFC services and applications. This report is focused on extending ABI Research’s coverage of the NFC market, expanding data splits from the previous report and looking into significant market and technical drivers and inhibitors that have taken place over the last 12 months. The report is accompanied with in-depth detailed forecasts into NFC IC and device shipments by region and application. The report also examines mobile cellular device shipments, along with accompanying controller and secure element IC splits, as well as the development of alternative solutions where NFC ICs are integrated into consumer electronics, tags, bridging solutions such as stickers, foils and micro SD cards, and an array of other applications in the healthcare, automotive, and security sectors.
