Global Smart Ticketing Market to Reach US$ 33.3 Billion by 2027, Bolstered by Growing Inclination Toward Public Transportation

Published on Mar 09, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Smart Ticketing Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global smart ticketing market size reached US$ 15.83 Billion in 2021. Smart ticketing refers to a flexible, quick, convenient, and contactless system that electronically stores a ticket on a microchip embedded smartcard. The smartcard is then scanned by the transport operator at a static or handheld ticket machine or barrier to authorize the travel. It uses the government-backed ITSO specification to enable the passengers to seamlessly travel in buses, trams, and trains without using traditional payment systems. Compared to the traditional ticketing system, smart ticketing is fast, efficient and eliminates the need to buy paper tickets.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Smart Ticketing Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the growing inclination toward public transportation due to traffic congestion and rising environmental concerns. In addition, various initiatives undertaken by governments of numerous countries to promote smart technology and ticketing arrangements represent another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the market is further influenced by the increasing demand for mobile apps and the growing utilization of digital bank cards. Moreover, key players are integrating blockchain technology with smart ticketing to improve the passenger experience and offer greater flexibility while minimizing paper usage. They are also providing smart ticketing solutions based on fingerprint recognition algorithms and ultra-touch fingerprint sensors. This, coupled with the emergence of the open-loop concept that enables passengers to use their mobile devices or debit or credit cards with payment functionalities, is escalating the demand for smart ticketing. Furthermore, various technological advancements, such as the introduction of quick response (QR) code, near-field communication (NFC), barcode, local wireless ticketing, and open payment systems, and the adoption of smart ticketing solutions in the sports and entertainment industries are expected to propel market growth in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 33.3 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 12.4% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
