Research and Markets: 2015 European Contactless Card Payments Landscape Featuring American Express, Cartes Bancaires, MasterCard & Visa Europe

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kv7vkf/2015_european) has announced the addition of the "2015 European Contactless Card Payments Landscape" report to their offering.

This latest research report, 2015 European Contactless Card Payments Landscape seeks to provide a better understanding of the European contactless card payment landscape by examining a number of critical factors, including the number of Visa, MasterCard, and American Express branded contactless debit and credit cards available across Europe, the number of contactless-enabled point-of-sale (POS) terminals, and more specifically developments in leading European contactless payment markets like the United Kingdom. In addition, this report considers the implications for the development of European mobile payment systems based on the growing popularity of contactless payment cards.

Contactless payments have dominated European payments headlines for the better part of a year now and for good reason. A technology that has been sitting in plain sight has finally come good and consumers across Europe (but mainly in a few countries) are increasingly using their newly issued contactless card for more and more of their general spending, comments Tristan Hugo-Webb, author of the report.
