Berg Insight AB has released a new report forecasting a drastic increase in NFC handsets shipped – from less than two million units in 2010 to 400 million units in 2015.
According to Berg, starting in the second half of 2011, more handsets supporting NFC will be used for applications such as information exchange, electronic ticketing and mobile payments. By 2015, the research company says nearly a quarter of all mobile handsets sold will come with NFC.
Berg also predicts that by 2015, Bluetooth, GPS and WLAN come equipped in 85, 61 and 53 percent of handset shipped, respectively.
