Near-field communication (NFC) refers to a short-range wireless technology that allows two devices to communicate using a low-power protocol. Tags, integrated circuits (ICs), SIM cards, and readers are some commonly used NFC devices. It is widely used for marketing, making payments, ticketing, and gaming applications in smartphones, tablets, laptops, wearables, cameras, and printers. NFC allows faster payment transactions and offers convenience, versatility, and seamless communication between devices, due to which it is widely adopted in retail, transportation, automotive, healthcare, hospitality, consumer electronics, banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) sectors.

Near Field Communication (NFC) Market Trends:
The global near-field communication (NFC) market is primarily being driven by the increasing product utilization in contactless payment and information systems. In line with this, the rising practice of social distancing to minimize human contact due to the advent of COVID-19 disease has increased the adoption of intelligent payment solutions like cashless or contactless payments, which is propelling the market growth. Additionally, the integration of machine learning (ML) with NFC in retail marketing to enhance engagement and personalized shopping experience by providing detailed information about products and services, offering demos, and addressing queries are providing an impetus to the market growth. Furthermore, the increasing demand for smartphones enabled with NFC technology that allows consumers to make easier and faster mobile transactions is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the introduction of NFC-enabled smart posters, boarding passes, and sensors is creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors, including the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) with NFC-compatible smart wearables, the implementation of various government initiatives promoting a cashless economy, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
