Contactless Ticketing Market is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 13.9% between 2022 and 2032 | Says FMI

The global contactless ticketing market is expected to be worth $9.4 billion in 2022, rising to $17.3 billion by 2032. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.9% between 2022 and 2032. The tourism, entertainment, and sports industries are expected to drive growth in the near future.

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.
