A Smart Time for Contactless
As 2006 came to a close, smart cards in the consumer card payments market had reached near full penetration in western European countries such as France and the United Kingdom. What was once a cutting edge technology is now a standard in the wallets of many Europeans.
In the United States, this market has struggled to gain a foothold. But, smart cards may now be getting a second chance in the form of contactless technology. The fast-paced American lifestyle continues to put pressure on retailers to serve customers in an ever-more efficient manner. At the same time, card brands such as MasterCard and Visa, are pushing for a bigger slice of the small-tickets payments pie traditionally reserved for cash. The time is finally right for large-scale penetration of smart cards in the payments market.
According to the new Packaged Facts report, Smart Cards in the U.S.: Contactless Payment Cards, roughly 27 million contactless payment cards were in circulation in the United States in 2006. If circumstances permit, that number could top 100 million by 2011. What’s more, increased penetration of contactless payments is expected grow transaction volumes and even managed balances for issuers.
This targeted report provides in-depth analysis of the small, but potentially large market for contactless payment cards in the United States. For perspective, it includes overviews of the overall smart card market worldwide and in the Untied States and the worldwide and U.S. payments markets. Also included are trends affecting the payments and contactless payments markets and analysis of consumer attitudes towards payment cards derived from the Annual Consumer Survey conducted by Simmons Market Bureau. To complete the report, an in-depth analysis of the potential market including forecasts of number of cards and increases in transaction and purchase volumes through 2011 is provided.
