China Migration to e-Passport and 2nd Generation Micros

Purchase

China remains an integral part of the government, healthcare, and citizen ID market. 13% of all smart shipments into the government ID market were deployed into Chinese projects in 2011. China currently has the largest single contactless national ID project in the world with an installed base totaling over 900 million units. The government has continued its focus on deploying smart credentials to its citizens, issuing a new dual interface social security card with payment functionality and e-passport deployments. China’s policy of using only local smart card and IC vendors seems to be softening as its thrust for higher level contactless microcontrollers surges. Local Chinese vendors currently do not have the expertise or technological developments to offer a competitive product, forcing China to import from foreign vendors. This report is purely focused on the government, healthcare, and citizen ID market within China. Questions answered include: why is the Chinese market integral to the government, healthcare, and citizen ID sector, who are the major winners (both local and international vendors), and what are the potential future opportunities? This report also includes ABI Research’s view of future market developments.
