The current pandemic has brought to light the importance and utility of wearable devices. Wearable devices are increasingly being used by users to measure, monitor, and continuously assess their personal health. The pandemic has also increased public awareness of the benefits of contactless payments. Due to the risk of contamination, it has accelerated the shift from cash to digital options via smartphones and wearable payment devices. Contactless payments have emerged as an essential solution for all businesses, allowing them to drive their operations forward while also ensuring safety in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

MARKET ESTIMATION:

Based on Device Type, the wearable payment device market is segmented by Smart Watches, Payment Wristbands, Fitness Trackers and Smart Rings. The smartwatch segment is expected to grow the most during the forecast period. The growing emphasis of vendors on launching low-cost smartwatches is expected to boost smartwatch adoption over the forecast period. These smartwatches communicate with smartphones via Bluetooth, NFC, or RF, making it easier for users to pay their bills. 

Based on Technology, the wearable payment device market is segmented by Near Field Communication Technology (NFC), Quick Response (QR) Codes, Barcodes, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Contactless Point of Sale (POS) Terminals. The contactless Point of Sale (POS) terminals segment is expected to grow the most during the forecast period. According to Berg Insight AB, nearly eight out of ten POS terminals installed by retailers or vendors worldwide will be able to accept NFC-enabled contactless payments. The incorporation of contactless payment capabilities based on NFC and IoT into wearable devices is expected to fuel the growth of the contactless POS terminals segment. Contactless POS terminals have been introduced by vendors such as Samsung Electronics and Apple, Inc., driving the segment.

Based on sales channel, the wearable payment device market is segmented by Direct Sales and Indirect Sales. Indirect sales channels or third parties account for a large portion of the market because these channels are primarily used by wearable payment device providers to offer their devices to various end users. The majority of the market's key players have well-established sales networks and sell their products globally. At the moment, the contactless payment function is mostly used by smart watches in the wearable device market. Furthermore, the ongoing COVID-19 scenario has resulted in a shift in consumer behavior, with consumers now preferring contact-free shopping experiences and practicing social distancing. Customers also prefer to purchase consumer electronics such as smartphones and wearable devices from third-party providers due to the periodic discounts and offers made available by online shopping websites.

Based on Application, the wearable payment device market is segmented by Retail/Grocery Stores, Hospitals, Restaurants, Entertainment Centers and Others. Contactless payment via wearable devices has been used for billing in retail and grocery stores because it is convenient and allows consumers to keep a record of their transactions. Furthermore, consumers are increasingly avoiding cash transactions. In addition, to keep customers safe, several retailers around the world are investing in contactless payment technologies. As a result, the retail and grocery store market is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.

 

The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
