NFC Phones sales growth exponentially rising through 2015
If we are to talk NFC Phones sales growth today, we already know that there aren’t many NFC Phones in the marketplace. Here in the States we have the Google Nexus S and in the UK there’s the Samsung Tocco. If you went out to buy an NFC-enabled smartphone today you would be hard pressed outside of those two options already mentioned to come home with an NFC Phone. But if those who make charts, graphs and projected statistics are to be believed, it isn’t going to be that way for long and NFC Phones sales are due for exponential sales growth starting this year.
What new NFC-enabled devices will kick off the NFC Phones sales growth?
If 2011 is the year that starts the ball rolling for NFC Phones sales growth we need to have more than one NFC phone in each respective market, so what phones are going to contribute to selling 93.2 million NFC Phones globally this year bearing in mind that Juniper Research projects that North America will account for more than half of all NFC smartphones in 2014, followed by Western Europe in market share? We know Nokia has its C7 ready to roll and we know we will likely see the Samsung Galaxy S II equipped with some NFC magic by the end of the year, but surely these three NFC Phones are not going to sell enough to account for 46.6 million NFC Phone sales in the United States alone when we are already half way through 2011. So where will the NFC Phones sales growth come from?
