The global smart transportation market was valued at USD 90.37 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach over USD 377.1 billion by 2030 with a registered CAGR of 17.2% from 2021 to 2030.
Smart transportation is a term that refers to one of the most important and intelligent transportation system-based applications. The internet of things vertical technology is used to connect it wirelessly. The technology’s primary goal is to collect and control real time data while also enhancing performance.
The growing demand among transportation authorities to develop smart solutions to control traffic and improve road and passenger safety is driving the growth of the smart transportation market. To improve transportation infrastructure, the smart transportation systems incorporate multiple information and communication technologies such global positioning systems, vehicle-to-grid infrastructure, fiber optics, and the internet of things.
The urbanization and globalization have driven the demand for smart railway software, which provides passengers with safety, dependable modern services, and operational efficiency. As the frequency of rail accidents has increased, smart sensor technologies in railway coaches that can detect faults in wheels, bearings, and railway tracks have become more important in preventing accidents. The governments from a variety of countries are also taking steps to construct smart railway networks and applying new technologies.
The vehicles can communicate with their surroundings in real time, preventing traffic jams and collisions. The intelligent traffic control systems for example collect real time traffic data to assist traffic regulators in diverting traffic away from congested regions, preventing traffic jams and lowering collision risks. The government agencies’ rapid expenditure in smart city initiatives, with the goal of providing suitable infrastructure and intelligent transportation systems to all inhabitants, will drive the smart transportation market growth during the forecast period.
The use of internet of things and automation technologies to increase technological optimization, as well as the rise in government efforts and public private partnerships models for smart transportation, are accelerating the smart transportation market expansion. The smart transportation market is also influenced by ongoing technical improvements aimed at improving customer experience and an increase in the use of analytics in smart transportation.
Furthermore, the mobility of a service has a beneficial impact on the smart transportation sector due to an increase in urban population, rapid industrialization, high demographic rates, and a decrease in car ownership. Moreover, the surge in demand for autonomous vehicles, as well as the design and development of connected vehicles that are compatible with intelligent transportation systems, provide attractive potential for key market players of smart transportation market.
The high initial deployment costs and challenges in integrating with legacy systems and networks, on the other hand, are projected to stifle industry expansion. The smart transportation market is expected to be challenged by strict transportation regulatory laws and frameworks and a lack of standardized and universal technologies.
