New Smart Card Research Available From IMS, Smart Card Alliance

Report includes estimates of the smart card installed base for 2008 and 2009 with forecasts to 2014

PRINCETON JUNCTION, NJ, JUNE 22, 2010 – Today, at least one smart card has been shipped for every person on the planet, with the globally installed base of smart cards estimated to have surpassed eight billion in 2009. In the Americas, the number of smart cards is expected to grow to 1.2 billion by 2014. More research, and new information on the state of the smart card market in the Americas, can be found in a new study, “Smart Cards & Smart Card ICs –Americas –2010," created by IMS Research in association exclusively with the Smart Card Alliance.

“This report is the first research of its kind to address smart cards specifically for the Americas, and contains the most up-to-date smart card research available for the region,” said Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Smart Card Alliance. “That makes it an essential marketing tool for our members, or anyone that is part of the smart card market in the United States, Canada, Mexico or Latin America. Using the more than 90 tables and 50 figures in the report can help companies identify growth areas and opportunities, and make more educated investments in developing smart card-based products and services.”
