Market Overview

Global Contactless Ticketing Market: Introduction

When it comes to the contactless ticketing, the two main options available are mobile NFC (Near Field Communication) and smart cards. Contactless smart cards are the ones customers are most aware of in contactless ticketing. In contactless ticketing, people just hold their card a few inches away from a reader, to securely authenticate or to pay for a passenger’s pass or ticket. Contactless ticketing solutions by a mobile NFC can store tickets on the mobile phone digitally, and the NFC-enabled mobile phone can be used as a contactless transport ticket. To top up, by using contactless ticketing a passenger has to just tap the mobile device on the NFC reader at the barrier or when boarding the bus or train. Many countries are already enjoying the benefits of near field communication technology by using contactless ticketing. Due to the increase in fraudulent activities and the need to provide secure services to customers, contactless ticketing providers are offering security-based solutions to fulfil this huge demand in the contactless ticketing market. The introduction of reliable and safe contactless ticketing has brought about a wide range of applications of contactless ticketing in different sectors. Contactless ticketing solutions can also be used for fare collection via mobile ticketing and tolls.

Global Contactless Ticketing Market: Drivers and Challenges

Contactless payments are fast-paced without the requirement of any password or pin to process the payment. Thus, these transactions are performed quickly without compromising on privacy or security. This is one of the major factors driving the growth of the contactless ticketing market. The increasing demand for mobile and web applications, and real-time information, are some of the major factors driving the growth of the contactless ticketing market. Faster and easier transactions by using contactless ticketing make the boarding of passengers’ smoother, and hence, is another factor anticipated to drive the growth of the contactless ticketing market during the forecast period. Moreover, the increased adoption of NFC payments is anticipated to foster the demand of the contactless ticketing market over the forecast period.

However, concerns regarding security and privacy have created lack of trust among the public, and the absence of a pin facility during the transaction in contactless ticketing further increases the concerns of customers. This is one of the key factors hampering the growth of the contactless ticketing market. Moreover, contactless ticketing cards are accepted at less locations as compared to magnetic striped cards, which is another factor restraining the growth of the contactless ticketing market.
