Week 23, 2009

The first Smart Insights Report titled “China Smart Card Market 2009” focuses on the huge opportunities brought by the development of the Chinese market. All Smart Insights readers know about China Mobile position as the #1 mobile network operator worldwide, based on the number of subscribers. Indeed, China Unicom and China Telecom are not less important in the global telecommunication landscape. China is also home to the largest identity projects in the world with the already established “2nd generation ID card”, delivered to around a billion Chinese citizens, and the ongoing Social Security card program. In China, there are 1.8 billion magstripe bank cards, waiting to be converted into smart cards. China is also at the forefront of innovative developments, with NFC pilots in Chongqing and other cities.

Besides being a huge market, China is also the base of major smart card vendors who challenge the longstanding European industrialists. Major ones like Watchdata, EastComPeace or Datang are quite well known by regular Smart Insights readers, but many other Chinese smart card vendors have developed a full product offer, and are expanding on global world markets.
