Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by rapid digitization and the widespread adoption of automation across the globe. With the busy and hectic lifestyles led by the working professionals, there has been a rising need for convenient and user-friendly modes of fare collection across public transport terminals. This has impelled the deployment of AFC systems at the entry and exit points of transport terminals in an attempt to minimize the wastage of time waiting in queues and ensure contactless and hassle-free payment solutions. Moreover, the continual developments in the existing public transport infrastructure and the widespread usage of smartphone applications for accessing travel route information and online booking of tickets are creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, the increasing integration of advanced technologies with AFC systems is also acting as a major growth-inducing factor.
