According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Contactless Payments market is accounted for $8.00 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $24.99 billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 13.5% during the forecast period. While the factors such as increased customer satisfaction and improved loyalty programs, and enhanced purchase experience are driving the growth of the market.

A contactless transaction can be done by just tapping the card on a Point of Sale terminal. The primary goal of these payments is to speed up the transaction for consumers. Contactless payment transactions are limited as these are not authenticated by a pin or a signature. Banks and Credit Card issuers also get benefited from contactless payments as the customers who tap tend to use their cards more frequently. In a contactless payment transaction, the data associated with your card or device constantly changes and can hardly be hacked.
