NFC offers better collaboration in corporate environments by ensuring speedy and secure sharing of documents, files, and confidential data. In case of payments, the card details of the consumer are stored on the mobile phone in a secure element. This takes the form of a Subscriber Identity Module, secured chips or a secure digital card and the fact that hardware encryption can be only used in close proximity to the point of sale makes it one of the most secure payments. This feature acts a major pull factor to attract new customers and users of NFC technology and technology-enabled devices. Owing to these factors, NFC market growth is likely to witness a positive impact over the forecast period.
