  • 5. What is NFC Technology?Near-Field Communication (NFC) enables wireless, RF-based communicationbetween smartphones and other devices at close-range. NFC operates at 13.56MHz, and uses HF RFID protocols, including ISO 14443 A and ISO 14443 B.NFC was developed by Sony and Philips (now NXP semiconductors) in 2002.Key NFC applications include device/Bluetooth pairing, ticketing,logical/physical access control, mobile payment, mobile marketing, informationaccess and peer-to-peer (P2P). © 2012 VDC Research Group, Inc.

  • 6. NFC Technology Adoption CurveNFC adoption is limited in most parts of the world (Japan is a key exception)Most current activity is driven by pilots or small-scale deployments Present Day Adoption Facilitated & Broader Adoption Committment Understanding Awareness Innovators Early Adopters Early Majority Late Majority Laggards © 2012 VDC Research Group, Inc.

  • 7. Consumer Applications for NFCOver 1,000 NFC users (consumers) across the world share their application experiences Much of the NFC attention Consumer End User NFC Applications (N=1006) to date has been focused TOTAL Americas EMEA APAC on mobile payment Contactless/Mobile Howeve,r NFC technology 49.2% 47.6% 43.0% 54.2% Payments can enable much more, Bluetooth pairing 41.7% 30.3% 28.8% 43.1% including: Mobile 41.0% 33.1% 36.4% 48.4% • Smart marketing/ Promotions/Offers advertising Information 39.2% 33.1% 25.2% 39.3% Access/Retrieval • Digital content delivery Peer-to-Peer 38.8% 28.0% 23.8% 40.0% • Access control Ticketing (i.e. transit, 37.1% 22.4% 23.8% 34.2% entertainment) • Gaming Mobile Couponing 35.6% 30.3% 24.8% 40.7% • Device pairing via Interactivity with Bluetooth Digital Signage 33.5% 34.6% 30.1% 43.1% • Location Based Services Customer Loyalty 33.3% 39.8% 36.4% 40.7% (LBS) Interactivity with In- 32.1% 29.5% 22.2% 33.3% Store Displays Interactivity with 28.1% 34.6% 34.8% 43.8% Posters © 2012 VDC Research Group, Inc.

  • 8. Like Traditional RFID Technology, NFC also Enabling “Check In” via Social MediaNFC is also set to shake up social ‘check-in’ platforms such as Foursquare andFacebook  Places such as bars and retail outlets look to introduce NFC hubs allowing consumers to swipe in and swipe out of locations  With many coffee houses, clothing shops and shopping centers already offering incentives for customers to share their location with their friends on Facebook or Foursquare, NFC technology could remove existing barriers to entry and encourage much wider spread adoption of location based services (LBS) and networks.  This would make it even easier for consumers to work in conjunction with brands to source smarter and better deals, and pass the baton to friends.NFC-enabled mobile phones will be able to pick up information from an NFCchip or tag, allowing the capture of real-time information on customer loyalty,item performance and more, to benefit retailers, brands and marketers.In the long-term, BI tools will also be increasingly integrated with NFC © 2012 VDC Research Group, Inc.
