The growing demand for contactless smart cards is expected to drive the smart card IC market growth during the forecast period. The demand for contactless cards is increasing owing to their benefits such as speed, ease of use, and versatility. Contactless smart cards consist of a chip and an antenna, which are composed of sensors that are packaged in standard PVC cards. The antenna embedded in the card allows it to communicate with the card reader without physical contact. These cards are being used in applications such as cashless vending, public transport, and for e-passports and other travel documents.
