The growth of the global near field communication (NFC) tags market share is anticipated to be driven by factors such as rising popularity for NFC tag-based payment, and growing penetration of NFC-enabled mobile phones. In addition, growth in need for convenient transfer and security of data boosts the overall market growth. However, the availability of alternatives to NFC tag act as major restraints of the global NFC tags industry. On the contrary, high demand from Asia-Pacific region is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the NFC tags industry.

Moreover, developing nations tend to witness high penetration of NFC tags products, especially in banking & finance sector, which is anticipated to augment the market growth. Factors, such as increase in demand for contactless payments, accelerate the market growth.

The global near field communication (NFC) tags market share is segmented into tag types, application, industry vertical, and region. By tag types, the market is classified into type 1, type 2, type 3, type 4, and type 5. Depending on application, it is categorized into smart card, tracking, payments, and others. On the basis of industry vertical, the market is fragmented into automotive, transportation, retail, medical & healthcare, banking & finance, agriculture, aerospace & defense, consumer electronics, and others.

Region-wise, the near field communication (NFC) tags market trends have been analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America contributed maximum revenue in 2020. However, between 2020 and 2030, the Asia-Pacific Near field communication (NFC) tags market is expected to grow at a faster rate as compared to other regions. This is attributed to increase in demand from the emerging countries such as India, China, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of COVID-19 has significantly affected the electronics and semiconductor sector. Business and manufacturing units across various countries were closed, owing to increase in number of COVID-19 cases, and are expected to remain closed in 2021. Furthermore, partial or complete lockdown has disrupted global supply chain posing challenges for manufacturers to reach customers.

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the society and overall economy across the globe. The impact of this outbreak is growing day-by-day as well as affecting the overall business globally. The crisis is creating uncertainty in the stock market and is resulting in falling business confidence, massive slowing of supply chain, and increasing panic among the customer segments.

Asian and European countries under lockdowns have suffered major loss of business and revenue due to shutdown of manufacturing units. The operations of the production and manufacturing industries have been heavily impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease, which further impacted the growth of the Near field communication (NFC) tags market.

In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the electronics sector, as production facilities have stalled, which, in turn, boosted the demand for electronics and semiconductor products in the industries. Its major impact includes large manufacturing interruption across Europe and interruption in Chinese parts exports, which may hinder the Near field communication (NFC) tags market.
