LatAm smart card shipments to hit 1 bln units in 2015

Thursday 26 September 2013 | 19:26 CET | News
Total smart card shipments across Latin America will increase from 752 million in 2013 to 1.15 billion in 2018, according to a report from ABI Research. The Latin American smart card market is rising from the ranks of an emerging region to one where large scale deployments are now being realized, the report shows. This is particularly true within the government ID and payment cards market, where EMV is beginning to take hold in the region and the government ID market is being driven by high-end national ID card deployments and continual migration to e-passports.
