Report Overview

The global intelligent traffic management system market size was valued at USD 9.12 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.9% from 2021 to 2028. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the market in terms of new sales and installations; however, the existing Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) installations across the globe are being used effectively. Several major system manufacturers have suspended their operations temporarily due to disruptions in the supply of components. Companies, buyers, and suppliers are equally affected by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ITMS market is expected to continue facing the challenges in 2021 as well. The production schedules are particularly at risk owing to supply chain disruptions, thereby restraining the growth of the market and posing threats to the incumbents of the market.

U.S. intelligent traffic management system market size, by solution, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

Although the market is expected to continue to grow during the rest of 2021, irrespective of the outbreak of the pandemic, the growth is expected to be irregular. While the demand is not likely to decrease outright, project delays and shifts in different product segments are expected to be inevitable. The ITMS market continues to be significant as the crisis continues to highlight the crucial role of infrastructure development in strengthening the response to the pandemic. Hence, the post-pandemic era is anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the incumbents of the market.

The need 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. The use of such systems maximizes the efficiency of traffic management and shortens the travel duration. The higher use of public transportation results in the reduction of airborne pollutants and carbon dioxide emissions. Intelligent traffic management systems contribute to the reduction in the consumption of fuels and greenhouse gas emissions by reducing traffic congestion.

ITMS provides traffic management solutions that enable enhanced road safety, traffic flow, and mobility. Additionally, traffic management solutions offer real-time data to analyze and respond to emergencies immediately. Countries worldwide are modifying their traffic management infrastructure to reduce traffic congestion. Regulatory initiatives related to security and safety are expected to have a positive impact on the adoption of telematics services in vehicles. 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.

Continued urbanization and the unabated increase in the number of vehicles plying on the roads have triggered heavy traffic congestion, large volumes of CO2 emissions, and safety concerns for urban planners, and have subsequently necessitated the development of new and innovative smart mobility solutions to roll out an effective transportation system. 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. Smart mobility solutions can play a crucial role in addressing all these issues and this is encouraging the adoption of smart mobility solutions and fostering the growth of the intelligent traffic management system market.

Solution Insights

The traffic monitoring system segment accounted for a market share exceeding 20% in 2020. Inadequate signal controls contribute considerably to road congestion and increase the overall travel time to a large extent. The major drivers for the growing adoption of traffic monitoring systems include the emergence of smart city projects, favorable government initiatives to develop traffic infrastructures, and the growth of adaptive traffic controls and analytics. Additionally, increasing traffic congestion and pollution from vehicles have accelerated the need for adopting Mobility as a Service (MaaS), which further increases the demand for traffic monitoring systems globally.

Global intelligent traffic management system market share, by solution, 2020 (%)

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 around the globe are likely to focus on developing infrastructure that complements transportation networks for the smart city. Municipalities are primarily seeking novel ways to minimize on-road traffic congestion by implementing an intelligent traffic management system and designing traffic signal control systems. Moreover, the intelligent traffic management system supports a wide 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 dominated the global market with a share of over 35% in 2020. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has been heavily investing in research and development, implementation, and adoption of intelligent traffic management systems across the country. Advancements in communication technologies are enhancing the revolution of the transportation network across the region. Mobile and radio devices featuring short-range dedicated technology are enabling drivers, freight operators, transit passengers, and transport authorities to undertake V2V communication. The usage of this technology is anticipated to increase with the number of vehicles across the region, driving the demand for ITMS solutions.

The Asia Pacific regional market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. According to UN 2017 world population prospects, Asia's population is likely to reach 5.26 billion by 2050, and around 64% of the region's population is expected to become urban. To reduce the burden of the region’s decreasing land carrying capacity, governments in the region are focusing on improving the overall physical infrastructure. Transportation being a crucial aspect of the physical infrastructure, the demand for ITMS is expected to increase significantly in the region in the near future. Countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and India are anticipated to lead the ITMS market. 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.
