NXP in the Transport Ticketing World Market 2. April 2013


NXP has been awarded first position in ABI Research´s latest transportation and ticketing IC vendor matrix. NXP continues to lead the market on the innovation and implemenation side.

With 77% market share within the transport ticketing market, NXP´s overall market share is five times larger than from its nearest competitor.

ABI Research confirmed that MIFARE continues to hold the top spot regarding volume shipments with a significant shift within its product range in favor of new formats such as MIFARE DESFire and MIFARE Plus. An established installed base of more than 650 cities using MIFARE will guarantee continued business.

NXP’s leadership looks set to continue as the demand for disposable RFID tickets increases.

The IC microcontroller market is a little more competitive but NXP again leads this market.

ABI Research does not see any significant changes within the memory IC ticketing market share rankings over the next 5 years.
