Forecast Summary

Global payment card shipment revenue for technology companies will reach $11.7 billion in 2026, from $9.7 billion in 2022. This 20% increase reflects new innovations emerging in the payment cards space while the contactless cards roll-out is reaching its latter stages.
  • The introduction of biometric cards, metal cards and dynamic CVV (Card Verification Value) cards will be majorly disruptive trends over the next five years. These new card types all have the same aim – to make cards fit for the new, digital-first payments ecosystem. These new card types will help evolve the payment experience for the digital age, increasing security and useability; making card usage more appealing in the face of increasing mobile-first payment innovations.
  • Metal cards will account for over $4.4 billion in hardware revenue for technology providers globally in 2026, from $1.2 billion in 2022. The premium appearance of metal cards will be highly appealing as a differentiator; driving their future growth.
  • The use of biometric cards, which feature embedded fingerprint sensors, will grow significantly, with shipments expected to grow by almost 850% over the next five years, to 173 million in 2026 globally. Biometric cards will enable card payments to better compete with mobile payments, including Apple Pay and Google Pay, eventually allowing payment cards to have no transaction limits. This development will be critical in removing the barriers to growth for contactless payments.
