Report Overview

The global intelligent traffic management system market size was valued at USD 9.70 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.1% from 2022 to 2030. However, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the market in terms of new sales and installations, with several major system manufacturers temporarily suspending their operations due to disruptions in the supply of components. Simultaneously, the existing Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) installations across the globe are being used effectively to keep demand afloat. The pandemic has had a significant economic impact on various companies, buyers, and suppliers creating challenges for the market in 2021.

U.S. Intelligent Traffic Management System Market size, by solution, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

Although the market for intelligent traffic management systems was projected to gain immense traction during the rest of 2021, the growth was expected to be irregular irrespective of the pandemic outbreak. While the demand is not likely to decrease outright, project delays and shifts in different product segments are expected to be inevitable. With improved traffic effectiveness, the ITMS market is anticipated to witness growth over the forecast period. Hence, the post-pandemic era is anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the incumbents of the market.

The rising demand for presenting real-time traffic information to drivers and passengers is one of the key factors driving the demand for ITMS. Improved traffic efficiency enables transportation authorities to respond to emergencies more quickly. These advanced systems are predicted to maximize the effectiveness of traffic management and also help reduce traveling duration. The increasing adoption of public transportation can help reduce carbon dioxide emissions and airborne pollutants. Moreover, there is an estimated reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption with the use of ITMS.

An intelligent traffic management system ensures road safety, traffic flow, and mobility. It also provides real-time data for the analysis and response to emergencies on an immediate basis. Various countries are putting effort into modifying their traffic management infrastructure to reduce traffic congestion. The adoption of telematics services in vehicles can significantly improve security and safety. These services enhance driver safety, reduce fuel consumption, improve driver behavior, and enable cost reduction. Telematics tracking systems are widely deployed in cars and include accessing and activating vehicles remotely using radio frequency identification.

The increasing urban population and speedy industrialization have increased the number of vehicles plying on the roads which have triggered heavy traffic congestion. Thereby, large volumes of CO2 emissions, and safety concerns for urban planners, are assumed to impact the market growth. For instance, according to the European Joint Research Centre (JRC), road congestion in Europe costs around 1% of the region's GDP. Mitigating the issue has become the foremost priority of most urban infrastructure development and management bodies in the region. The ITMS also requires smart mobility solutions that can play a vital role in addressing all these issues and solutions and fostering the market growth.

Solution Insights

The traffic monitoring system segment accounted for a revenue share of over 20% in 2021. Inadequate signal controls contribute considerably to road congestion and increase the overall travel time to a large extent. The emergence of smart city projects, favorable government initiatives to develop traffic infrastructures, and the growth of adaptive traffic controls and analytics are the key factors in deploying traffic monitoring systems. Furthermore, increasing traffic congestion and pollution from vehicles have accelerated the need to adoptMobility as a Service (MaaS), which is anticipated to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Global Intelligent Traffic Management System Market share, by solution, 2021 (%)

The traffic signal control system segment is anticipated to expand at a considerable CAGR over the forecast period owing to the availability of highly reliable and low-cost sensors, data storage facilities, and computing and networking infrastructure. Governments and businesses are exhibiting an optimistic transition toward smart transportation that complements transportation networks for smart cities. Municipalities are primarily seeking novel ways to minimize traffic congestion in smart cities by implementing intelligent traffic management systems and designing traffic signal control systems. ITMS also supports a variety of smart city applications such as eco-driving, prioritizing public transport at traffic signals, Smart Traffic Signal Control (STSC), broadcasting messages, and ensuring a safe passage of emergency vehicles by Emergency Vehicle Signal Preemption (EVSP) in traffic signals.

Regional Insights

North America held a major revenue share of over 35% in 2021. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has been heavily investing in R&D, implementation, and adoption of ITMS. The strong emphasis of regional governments is improving transportation infrastructure is further driving the adoption. Advancements in communication technologies and tackling vehicular congestion for improved efficacy of transport capacity through a real-time exchange are anticipating the revolution of the transportation network across the region. Soaring adoption of mobile and radio devices featuring short-range dedicated technology enables drivers across the region, driving the demand for ITMS solutions.

Asia Pacific is dynamically transforming with increasing demand for advanced technology and the continued expansion of transportation networks and is expected to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. According to the UN 2017 world population prospects, Asia's population is likely to reach 5.26 billion by 2050, and around 64% of it is expected to be urban. To reduce the burden of decreasing land carrying capacity, the governments are focusing on improving the overall physical infrastructure. Transportation is a crucial aspect of the physical infrastructure.

The demand for intelligent traffic management systems is expected to increase significantly in the countries, such as China, Japan, South Korea, and India, which are anticipated to fuel the market growth. Furthermore, the initiatives undertaken by government bodies in the region are expected to fuel the growth of the market. For instance, in 2017, China issued a five-year plan for establishing a modern, efficient, green, safe, intelligent, and comprehensive transportation system.
