Infineon still #1, says Frost and Sullivan
Infineon’s strong market position is particularly driven by its leadership in the Government Identification (ID) and Payment market segments.
In Government ID applications, roughly every second Government ID document (without the China ID project) issued in 2008 incorporated a security chip of Infineon. Government ID applications include electronic documents, such as passports, national ID, health cards, drivers licenses and social security cards. Today, Infineon’s products are used in the public domain of about one third of the 192 UN member states, which represent a total population of more than three billion people.
Infineon is also the major supplier for many of the world’s largest financial card applications, including credit and debit card programs in France, Germany, the UK and Korea.
