Market Report Description

The Latin America, Middle East and Africa Smart Card IC Market would witness market growth of 8.1% CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2029).

A smart card IC may be used to store data or carry out certain functions and inserted into a plastic card. They are utilized in several applications, including access control, identity management, and credit and debit cards. The increased data storage capacity, security, and portability of smart card ICs are some of their main advantages. Due to their difficulty in duplicating and resistance to tampering, smart card ICs offer high security. They are perfect for access control and identity management applications since they can store a lot of data. Smart cards are also transportable and simple to carry in a purse or wallet.

Incorporating the latest technological features in smart cards has further expedited their use. With the help of AI, enterprises can now develop quick, secure apps that adhere to high-security standards. Using smart cards to manage cryptographic keys can make transactions more secure and efficient. Vaults are used to store cryptographic keys. The keys on smart cards can be compared with keys kept in online libraries when they are connected to the Internet through point-of-sale readers. If there is a successful match, users are given authenticated status. This should make it easier for banks as well as other financial ecosystem participants, to secure and validate customers' identities, which would lower the incidence of online theft.

Since issuers are committing to the technology, the proportion of contactless-enabled cards is rising quickly as banking institutions now issue most cards in the region with contactless certifications. As a result of changes in customer behavior brought on by COVID, Latin America is rapidly approaching a turning point in the adoption of contactless technology. Customers and companies have adopted contactless payments throughout Latin America due to their quickness and ease. The popularity of contactless cards is partly due to their convenience and the fact that they are safe and offer robust fraud prevention. In addition, contactless cards have some of the lowest fraud rates of any payment, propelling their use in the region. Therefore, the regional smart card IC market will grow significantly in the coming years.
