Wearable Payments Devices Market Share, Variables, Trends, Regional Scope and Raw Material Outlook, 2028

San Francisco, Calif., USA, Aug 10, 2022 — /EPR Network/ —

Wearable Payments Devices Industry Overview

The global wearable payments devices market size was valued at USD 10.35 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29.8% from 2021 to 2028. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for Host Card Emulation (HCE) and the growing adoption of cashless transactions. HCE allows mobile or wearable devices to permit card imitation on NFC-enabled devices without depending on access to an authenticated element. Furthermore, the increasing demand for wearable payment devices owing to their fast payment capability is expected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period. Numerous e-banking platforms are adopting wearable payment devices. These platforms are focusing on integrating the Near Field Communication (NFC) technology into their transaction operations, which facilitates seamless payments. Furthermore, the decreasing costs for deploying NFC technology are encouraging the rise in demand for the technology. Businesses widely use this technology to transfer data from their devices to various contactless payment terminals, such as NFC tags and smartphones.

The market is significantly driven by the increase in digitization, followed by the growing adoption of a cashless economy observed in several countries. The use of smart technologies, coupled with rising internet penetration, has resulted in the increased adoption of connected devices. Furthermore, the market growth is influenced by the presence of VR and AI technologies, which is driven by developments in mobile applications. Digitization in banks is expected to gain traction as banks are focusing on connecting card management systems with various token service providers.

The outbreak of COVID-19 is anticipated to favorably impact market growth over the forecast period. In this time of the pandemic, customers across the globe are preferring contactless payments as a mode of payment, which is expected to fuel the adoption of wearable payment devices. However, factors such as the limited battery life of the devices, high cost of the devices, and security concerns are expected to hamper the market growth. The high costs of devices impact the ability of manufacturers to launch their products in the market, thus resulting in limited production. These payment devices are costly, which restricts various consumers from purchasing these devices. Additionally, the rising competition in the market and low awareness about the product are further limiting the market growth.
