Proposal: Near Field Communication (NFC) Components and Devices


  • Market adoption/penetration scenarios, estimates and forecasts are built using user budgets, recent installations, future purchasing plans and supplier shipment analysis. Key inputs include customer penetration forecasts, market adoption analysis, supplier forecasts of revenues, units and prices and economic outlook data.

  • Data is verified via primary and secondary research by conducting supplementary interviews, crosschecking target firms’ channels and key accounts, requesting estimates from competitors in the industry, crosschecking direct secondary sources, and reviewing historical performance.

  • Supplier share and position analyses are derived directly from structured, in-depth interviews of leading and emerging NFC component and device suppliers. Our analysts use client-approved interview questionnaires to poll suppliers on a broad range of topics, including recent historical, current year and projected shipments.

  • Customer requirements and preferences are focused on product and supplier selection criteria. Client- approved telephone questionnaires and Web survey tools are used to poll current and prospective buyers of NFC components and devices to understand recent historical, current and future preferences for various technologies, feature sets, vendors, and sources of supply. This data assists in the development of technology penetration scenarios, manufacturer position and direction, and channel effectiveness.
