Smart Card Industry in India: SIM, Identity, Banking, Transport, Healthcare, Pay TV, Loyalty & PDS
In technology terms, smart cards resemble similar to “dumb” magnetic stripe cards, but with one major difference: embedded in them is a computer chip, either to process data held on the card, or to act as an access key to data that is held remotely. Smart cards are more secure than simple plastic or magnetic stripe cards and are more versatile, being able to store more data and operate multiple applications.
Till recently, the telecom sector has been the only prominent user of smart cards in the country. The picture is now undergoing a radical change. Driven by a number of public and private initiatives, the use of smart cards is getting more and more diversified. During 2013-2018, we expect smart cards to further percolate into a number of other sectors such as credit/debit cards, financial inclusion, public distribution, healthcare, identity management, transportation, etc. The versatile application of smart cards can be further validated from the fact that the telecom sector, which represented the biggest application sector in 2012, accounted for more than 70% of the total market volumes. In contrast, the National Population Register, which is expected to represent the biggest application segment in 2018, is expected to account for less than 31% of the total market volumes by 2018.
