Component Analysis

“Public transport smart card with microcontroller based smart cards will spark the market growth”

In 2018, the overall public transport smart cards market was led by the microcontroller-based smart cards segment with more than 50% market share. This is due to the additional features and functionality offered by these cards including security and intellectual data processing features are few factors which is driving the segment across the globe. The segment is expected to retain its dominant position in the market over the forecast period. 

In order to access the information from a smart card, the card needs an interface to communicate with a reader or terminal. Data can be transferred either by using electrical connections with the contact pads on the surface of the smart card, physical contact, without contact, and using radio frequency (RF) transmission. Additionally, the contactless data transmission is used by numerous of the newer smart cards issued for applications like mass transit tickets through debit and credit payment cards like ExpressPay from American Express® , Discover® Network ZipSM, MasterCard® PayPass™. For instance, Infineon have developed a “32-bit AURIX™” a microcontroller based on TriCore™ embedded with safety and security features basically targeted towards automotive industries.

Regional Analysis

“Dominance is led by the technological expansion in transit system coupled with rising demand for smart ticketing to drive the global public transport smart card market” 

The global public transport smart cards market was dominated by Asia-Pacific holding a market share, in terms of revenue, of than more 40% in the year 2018. This is due to increasing investment by various manufactures and advancement in technology in payment systems in the region is one of the major factors driving the market. Additionally, the rising demand for smart ticketing systems from various countries including India, China, Japan and others are also contributing to the growth of the market. Moreover, the smart card is also being adapted to reduce the fraudulent caused by the individuals.

Furthermore, certain contactless smart card technologies are likely to dominate certain geographical areas in the Asia Pacific region, and are also likely to dominate certain applications sectors. For instance, the transportion sector have implemented Sony contactless smart card technology in Singapore, which has directed a long-term goal of merging with the local electronic purse scheme by issuing a dual-interface card. Moreover, introduction of smart contactless cards by developing countries like “TAIPEI’S EASYCARD”, “SINGAPORE’S EZLINK”, “HONG KONG’S OCTOPUS”, “MALAYSIA’S TOUCH’N GO”, “KOREA’S METROPOLITAN AFC SCHEME FOR SEOUL”, “CHINA’S SHENZHEN TONG CARD”, “JAPAN’S SUICA CARD”, and many more is likely to fuel the market economy for public transport smart cards across the region.
