Key Highlights
Consumers have become more appreciative of the convenience that contactless cards provide, meaning growth in user uptake has been significant all over the world. The number of contactless cards in circulation has grown from 209 million in 2010 to over 553 million by the end of 2013.

The US is the largest contactless market at present, with 123 million payment cards in issue by the end of 2013. However, as this represents just 9% of payment cards in the market, there is still a lot of untapped potential. Poland is the market with the highest coverage of contactless, with over 51% of payment cards carrying this function.

In many markets where contactless payment cards have a high penetration, issuers are only issuing contactless-enabled payment cards, rather than providing consumers with other options. More consumers are now carrying contactless cards, in some cases without realizing. This makes the next phase of contactless growth all about driving usage upward.”
