Published: Nov 2017 | Report Code: 58778-11-17

Smart wallets are essentially digitally connected wallets which can carry various payment cards and money. Enabled with connectivity to smartphones, smart wallets offer numerous features such as tracking, detection and locating wallets through the smartphone application. Currently, smart wallets make use of technologies such as Bluetooth, global positioning systems (GPS), near field communication (NFC) and cellular networks, among others to communicate with smartphones and offer other payment and alarming features. Smart wallets make use of the Bluetooth technology to keep a track on the distance between the user carrying his or her smartphone and the wallet itself. Once the smart wallet gets out of the range and loses Bluetooth connectivity, the smartphone application quickly raises an alarm alerting the user. In addition, most of the latest smart wallets available in the market offer bi-directional connectivity enabling tracking of the smart wallet through the smartphone and vice versa. Some of the other features offered in the latest smart wallets include usage of a micro camera to click a picture once the wallet is opened in theft mode. The picture clicked in this mode is immediately sent to the user’s smartphone along with the current location of the smart wallet. Thereby, smart wallets have offered a viable solution for users from all across the world to track and locate their lost or stolen wallets. Some of the other security features include RFID blocking which prevents malicious reading of contactless cards stored in the wallet.

Manufacturers of smart wallets have been increasingly focusing on providing enhanced utility in their products while maintaining the small size of the wallets. For instance, numerous manufacturers have incorporated features such as power banks, pen drives, bottle opener and other utility tools within the confined space of the wallet. Thereby, the overall market has been experiencing an introduction of smart wallets with numerous features to compel users to switch from traditional wallets to the smart ones.

Smart Wallets Market

In 2016, North America represented the largest market for smart wallets, in terms of revenue. The growth of smart wallets market in the region is primarily supported by higher technological adoption and consumer awareness. In addition, most of the pioneers in the smart wallet industry are headquartered in the U.S. which has further fuelled the adoption of these products. The region accounted for almost half of the overall smart wallets sales in 2016 across the world.

Leading markets for smart wallet in the Europe region include UK, Germany and France, among others. In the Asia Pacific region, countries such as Japan, China and India offer immense growth opportunities for the smart wallets market in the future.

The global smart wallets market is segmented, based on material type, into following categories

  • Metallic
  • Non-metallic

 

Smart Wallets Market

On the basis of material type, the overall smart wallets market was led by the non-metallic segment in 2016. The segment held almost three fourth of the share in the overall smart wallets market across the globe. Factors such as continued demand for fine leather products and elegant styling have compelled smart wallet manufacturers to use such materials. In addition, the use of non-metallic material results in lower weight as compared to its metallic counterparts. Thereby, non-metallic smart wallets have gained immense popularity among consumers.

The metallic smart wallets make use of various materials including aluminum and stainless steel, among others to offer enhanced robustness and strength to the wallet. In addition, manufacturers use metals to produce enclosed wallets which offer higher protection against damage from shock, water and heat, among others. However, metallic smart wallets are used in a limited number of application where the user could expose their wallets to such harsh conditions. Moreover, metallic wallets offer a cold and unnatural feel as compared to wallets made using leather or other fabrics thereby, resulting in limited adoption.
