The global online event ticketing market size is expected to reach USD 67.99 billion by 2025, exhibiting a 4.8% CAGR during the forecast period. Growing demand for online ticketing can be attributed to increased Internet accessibility and overall hassle-free experience in booking processes.

Event ticketing processes have witnessed a paradigm shift from traditional booking of tickets at event venue counters to purchasing tickets in advance from the comfort of one's home.
