What is expected to keep the Hopes High for Smart Ticketing Market?

  • Increasing demand for smart ticketing from the sports, entertainment, and tourism industries

Because of its rapid, secure, and user-friendly characteristics, public transportation networks, sports, and entertainment businesses are heavily using smart ticketing systems to lure customers. The Smart Ticketing system provides a cost-effective and efficient solution for users to manage their public transport journey. It also allows customers to pre-load credit amounts for future tickets. Furthermore, if the smart ticket is lost or stolen, the user can retrieve the loaded amount and transfer it to another smart card. These characteristics make it a safe and simple method to purchase tickets. The current emphasis on transportation, sports, and entertainment industries is likely to fuel this market's growth at a quick rate throughout the forecast period.


  • Technological advancements, integration of blockchain technology, and increased use of digital bank cards

Key players are using blockchain technology with smart ticketing to enhance customer experiences and provide greater flexibility while reducing paper waste. In addition, they provide smart ticketing with biometric authentication algorithms and ultra-touch fingerprint sensors. This, along with the facility of using mobile devices or debit or credit cards for making payments, is driving the demand for smart ticketing. Moreover, technological advancements such as the emergence of QR codes, NFC, barcodes, open payment systems, etc. are expected to drive market growth in the coming years.

What restraints is the Smart Ticketing Market subject to?

“High installation costs of smart ticketing systems”

Smart ticketing systems are widely used in public transportation networks and sporting events, but the network installation cost is very high due to complicated hardware installation and battery powered RFID tags that must be distributed to customers, making the system financially unfeasible for most businesses. The demand for a high initial investment is projected to hinder market growth.

How has Covid-19 affected the Smart Ticketing Market?

“Slowdown in usage of smart ticketing during the lockdown.”

The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic affected the growth of the smart ticketing market by causing hotel and restaurant closures, cancellation of sports and entertainment events, and travel restrictions. Transportation activity was significantly reduced as a result of restrictions imposed to prevent the virus's spread between March 2020 and September 2021. However, the relaxation of lockdown by the end of 2021 fuelled the expansion of this sector.

Competitive Landscape

The smart ticketing industry is highly concentrated, and more global firms are projected to enter this market as government initiatives in favor of this sector are expected to expand. Product launches, high expenditure on R&D, partnerships, acquisitions, etc. are the primary growth methods used by organizations to stay ahead of the competition.
