Market Research Future published a research report on “Near Field Communication (NFC) Market Research Report – Forecast to 2023” – Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast to 2023.

Market Synopsis

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology, jointly developed by Philips and Sony that allows electronic devices like smartphones or tablets to exchange information when they are touched together or brought within few centimeters of each other. Near field communication is a short-range wireless connectivity that uses magnetic field induction to enable communication between devices. Near field communication (NFC) technology offers smartphones and other NFC-enabled devices to communicate through NFC tags and NFC chips. NFC simplifies and speeds up the payment process by enabling users to make payment by placing a compatible device like a smartphone or payment card within a few centimeters of another compatible device. Android devices with NFC support three main modes of operation: reader/writer mode, P2P mode, and card emulation mode. The reader/writer mode enables NFC devices to read and/or write passive NFC tags and stickers. P2P mode enables NFC devices to exchange data with one another. Card emulation mode allows NFC device itself to act as an NFC card. The emulated NFC card can be accessed by an external NFC reader such as an NFC point of sale terminal. NFC offers speedy and secure sharing of documents, files and confidential data in corporate environments. Also, in case of payments, the card details of the consumer are stored on the mobile phone in a secure way. Advantages of near field communication are convenience of payment, Versatile, Seamless, secure and others.
