Global smart ticketing industry is expected to reach US$17.2bn by 2027


The smart Ticketing Market is majorly driven by its significant adoption in several public transportation companies. For instance, in August 2021, the Conduent Transportation, a global business unit of Conduent Incorporated announced successful implementation and released a contactless payment system that allows direct purchase of tickets on trams managed by Tramvie Elettriche Bergamasche (TEB), a bus and cable car railroad affiliate managed by Azienda Trasporti Bergamo (ATB) in Italy.

Similar to Italy, smart ticketing is growing with the significant rate in many other regions along with the advancements in innovations such as ‘open loop concept’ where passengers can utilise their debit and credit cards or mobile devices with payment functionalities, like wearables, for ticket payments, says Prashil Sawale of AllTheResearch. One such open loop system is named as ‘National Public Transport Card’ using which people can pay ticket fares for all the public transport.

The Global Smart Ticketing Market was valued at US$6.8 Bn (€5.94 Bn) in 2020 is expected to reach US$17.2 Bn (€15.03 Bn) by 2027, with a growing CAGR of 14.1% during the forecast period.

Moreover, the increasing demand for blockchain in smart ticketing to control and safeguard the transactions is further driving the smart ticketing market. The usage of blockchain is estimated to be beneficial as it allows network participants to exchange data with a high degree of reliability and transparency without the need for a centralised administrator.

Many of the companies are looking forward to work with technology in the forecast period. For instance, in July 2021, the Sacramento Kings collaborated with LAVA and Flow, a NBA Top Shot supporting Blockchain and announced the launch of its smart ticket non-fungible token (NFT) experience pass for lucky fans during California Classics.
