Global Mobile Ticketing Market 2016-2020

About the Mobile Ticketing Market

Mobile ticketing is the process in which customers purchase and obtain tickets using their smartphones or other mobile devices. There are several applications for mobile ticketing, including event ticketing, airline ticketing, transit ticketing, and theatre ticketing.

Mobile ticketing is an initiative to enhance the role of mobile phones in ticketing services. The use of mobile phones will enable consumers to buy tickets and to carry tickets within the phone’s secure universal integrated circuit card. This will work as an alternative to the traditional electronic card-based tickets and will provide additional functionality and convenience to end-users. Mobile ticketing will also provide more opportunities for service providers. For instance, ticketing agencies will be able to access new channels via the mobile handset to bring value-added services such as traveler guides to the market.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global mobile ticketing market to grow at a CAGR of 20.09% during the period 2016-2020.
