The smart card is generally connected to a host controller based on RF communication technology through a card reader. It offers enhanced reusability, secure transaction, and storage of a large amount of data. As a result, smart cards encourage smart payment mode and supplement secure payment transactions in various banking, financial, healthcare, and government sectors.

Global Smart Card Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the significant growth of the healthcare sector that employs smart cards in electronic medical records, telemedicine, and other IT services to deliver and manage healthcare systems.

Furthermore, technological advancements, such as the introduction of hybrid smart cards with memory and microprocessors, which provide physical access to prohibited areas, personal identification, authentication, data storage, and application processing, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
