The increase in population and urbanization has resulted in the growing need for mobility. Public transportation has become the most preferred mode of transportation for people to avoid problems such as air pollution and traffic congestion. Traveling by buses, trains, and metros is often more comfortable, convenient, and cost-effective. To make traveling for people more convenient and comfortable, public transport systems use modern ticketing systems such as contactless ticketing, which allows high passenger throughput.

A smart card is a pocket-sized card with either an embedded integrated circuit called a microcontroller chip, which has an internal memory, or a secured memory chip. Smart cards are used mainly for security purposes for authentication, identification, data storage, and application processing. With an embedded microcontroller chip, smart cards store large amounts of data; carry out their own on-card functions such as decryption, data storage and management, digital signature calculations, and encryption; and interact quickly with a smart card reader.

The analysts forecast global transit cards market to grow at a CAGR of 8.06% during the period 2016-2020.
