Near field communication (NFC) is a set of communication protocols for communication between electronic devices over a distance of 4 cm or less. NFC offers a low-speed connection with a simple setup that can be used to bootstrap wireless connections. Subscriber identity module (SIM) cards inside mobile phones act as smart cards that identify a customer’s payment account to the network. On the NFC-enabled phones, these SIM cards act as the secure elements that hold secure data and other applications such as payment cards. Moreover, some typical uses include mobile payment, authentication, and access control, and data sharing among NFC-enabled units. Over the coming years, NFC is poised to become a major technology being used as a secure medium of access to contents and for a variety of services including cashless payment, access control, and ticketing.

Market Statistics:

The global near field communication market is expected to surpass US$ 64,783.9 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2028.
