The payment ecosystem continues to evolve and adopt new means of conducting and authenticating transactions, varying between regions and across cultural and social demographics.

Ongoing adoption of contactless, mobile and wearables, digital wallets, in-app and biometric card solutions are helping to create convenient, seamless and frictionless payment experiences. Alongside these rapid advances, we address approaches to mitigate evolving risks and combat potential fraud. New entrants continue to disrupt and challenge, moving the market forward by offering new service models with more consumer-centric and inclusive approaches.

Our coverage addresses the uptake and adoption of these payment technologies and services, assessing commercial and user appeal and the business opportunities they present. We also explore the integration of complementary technologies, such as digital identity and biometrics for improved security experiences and regulatory compliance, such as identity verification and user authentication.

Smart airport technologies research

The Seamless Passenger Journey in Smart Airports - 2021

The report provides a timely insight into the current smart airports market status and future direction. It reviews the impact of COVID-19 on investment decisions in each region and outlines how the adoption of smart airport touchpoints can aid recovery and improve operational efficiency.

This is based upon detailed market data and analysis of trends and factors for each touchpoint by region and airport size. Long-term forecasts are provided for market penetration, installed base, annual installations and market value.

Free Infographic - The Seamless Passenger Journey

Self-service and automated touchpoints are forecast to account for 26% of revenues associated with the seamless passenger journey between 2020-2030. When including maintenance, contract renewals and revenues associated with supporting biometric identity management platforms and passenger processing, it becomes an estimated $8.7bn opportunity.

Our free infographic introduces some of the key findings from our recent report on The Seamless Passenger Journey in Smart Airports.

Free Covid Impact Report

As companies continue to navigate the widespread disruption caused by Covid-19, we published an Impact Report to help organisations evaluate their current positioning and ensure they have appropriate strategies in place to move forwards.

This report addresses all forms of secure hardware and credentials, including cards and embedded solutions/chips. Informed by ongoing two-way discussions with many key stakeholders, we provide a summary of our views on the market and outline how we will adjust our forecasts in upcoming reports.

eSim Device Adoption

eSIM + iSIM Device Adoption, Consumer, M2M & IOT – 2022

Despite the relatively successful introduction of eSIM technology into wearables, smartphones and notebooks, support from mobile network operators is not ubiquitous and on-boarding processes are not yet widely optimised. Meanwhile, iSIM support and implementation is growing but, for now, remains focussed on IoT.

This report will provide insight, guidance, and a timeline for how the markets for eSIM and iSIM adoption will move forward.

Estimated Q2 2022

eSim Platforms

eSIM + iSIM Platforms & Services - 2022

A complementary follow-up study to eSim + iSim Device Adoption report. A discounted package is available for clients interested in both reports.

With connectivity being embedded and integrated into much greater volumes and varieties of devices, it is increasingly important for companies to adopt new ways of on-boarding, activating and managing these devices; offering new digital, remote capabilities for more efficient business processes and creating new business models. This report examines the future potential of such services, forecasting adoption volumes and revenue opportunities by vertical application and device type.

Estimated Q3 2022

Smart Borders: Land, Air & Sea - 2022

This report will examine which technologies are being deployed, where they are being deployed and provide a forecast timeline and market value. It will primarily focus on the movement, identification and screening of people.

Example technologies proposed within the scope include biometrics, physical security screening, cameras and AI for real-time analytics and automated risk-based decision-making as government agencies look to modernise their traditional (largely manual) border processes.

Estimated Q4 2022

Digital Identity Wallets & Derived Credentials – 2023

More identity wallets are being offered to enable consumer, enterprise and government services to quickly verify and on-board users, then authenticate them to allow access to services across multiple channels in a secure, trusted, low-friction manner. Often these offer the ability to capture and safely store verified government and corporate identity credentials as a root of trust for both users and service providers.

This report analyses the landscape and vendor ecosystem with forecasts for adoption and subsequent revenues by major sector.

Estimated Q4 2023
