Smart Card IC Market Trends, Size, Revenue Forecast and Report by 2028

Industry Overview of Smart Card IC Market

A smart card integrated circuit (IC), commonly known as a chip card, is a technology embedded within a plastic card that serves as a token for transacting and storing data between users. There are two main types of smart card ICs: memory and microcontroller variants. The microcontroller smart card IC incorporates various components such as a crystal oscillator, central processing unit (CPU), timers, watchdog, analog input and output, among others. It is designed to simplify embedded systems by reducing complexity, circuit size, costs, and the need for discrete components. In contrast, the memory smart card IC relies on the card reader for processing and is typically used when the card performs a fixed operation. It is commonly associated with storing and processing information and value within the memory and microprocessor chip of the card.

How Big Is the Smart Card IC Market?

The global smart card ic market size reached US$ 2.8 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 3.9 Billion by 2028 exhibiting a CAGR of 5.4% during 2023-2028.

Smart Card IC Market Trends and Drivers:

The smart card IC market is primarily driven by the widespread adoption of cashless transactions, fueled by the increasing use of smartphones and high-speed internet connectivity. Additionally, banks offering discount vouchers and cashback incentives to small and medium-sized merchants to promote digital transactions contribute to market growth. The growing demand for online shopping and the proliferation of e-commerce websites also play a significant role in driving market expansion. Furthermore, the utilization of smart employee identification (ID) cards in small and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs) for secure access to physical facilities, computer systems, and networks is positively impacting the global market. Moreover, the healthcare industry is witnessing a substantial adoption of smart card ICs for managing patient identity and providing secure access to medical records, benefiting both patients and healthcare practitioners. These factors combined are expected to fuel the growth of the smart card IC market over the forecasted period.
