Road Safety Market Size & Trends

The global road safety market size was evaluated at USD 3.07 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.5% from 2023 to 2030. The market is gaining momentum owing to a surge in the number of road accidents and fatalities. The increasing need for public security and improvement in road infrastructure bodes well for market growth. Additionally, several governments around the world are taking steps to decrease traffic accidents through numerous programs and initiatives. In an attempt to curb the growing number of road accidents and fatalities, governments worldwide are focusing on maintaining traffic discipline and ensuring commuters' safety.

U.S. Road Safety Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Road safety products have witnessed several developments over the past few years. Earlier, to maintain traffic discipline, the operators installed red lights and speed monitoring services along roads and intersections. However, with increasing technological advancements, players focus on designing services combining red light and speed monitoring capabilities in a single unit. Furthermore, the growing preference for connected commercial vehicles is helping road safety solution providers implement solutions that can simultaneously collect vehicles and road infrastructure. Thus, investments in developing infrastructure that supports connected and autonomous vehicles provide new avenues for road safety solution providers. Companies can provide existing data to analyze road user behavior and traffic mobility and help in developing improved road infrastructure.

Globally, a rise in road fatalities has been a primary factor favoring road safety sales. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), road accidents lead to over 1.3 million deaths every year, with an average of 35 million people suffering non-fatal injuries resulting in disability or other health conditions. Therefore, highway safety has gained prominence, with governments worldwide promoting initiatives to lower these numbers. Further, growing awareness of public security has forced authorities to invest in road infrastructure. For instance, Singapore Government has launched the Smart Mobility 2030 strategic proposal, jointly developed by the Intelligent Transportation Society Singapore (ITSS) and the Land Transport Authority (LTA), Singapore. The initiative is aimed at deploying intelligent transport services to offer sustainable smart mobility solutions for commuters.

Favorable initiatives supporting the deployment of road safety measures, including rules and regulations and devices to track traffic, will go a long way in favoring growth over the forecast period. For instance, the U.S. federal government launched the Road to Zero initiative to eliminate traffic fatalities by 2050. The initiative was launched by the National Safety Council and encourages the use of safe and advanced services to put an end to traffic fatalities. In India, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has also been taking initiatives towards the improvement of road safety to reduce accidents on National Highways.

Service Insights

The professional service segment accounted for the largest market share of 80.30% in 2022. The professional services segment covers service integration, installation, training, consultancy, and support and maintenance. Implementation of the equipment requires a certain degree of calibration along with periodic maintenance and monitoring. Therefore, the demand for professional services has been dominating industry growth over the last few years and would continue to do so in the future.

The managed service segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 15.9% during the forecast period. These services are managed as well as controlled by dedicated vendors' end-to-end, thereby making them a popular choice among end customers. The segment’s high growth is attributable to the growing preference for service outsourcing among customers. Additionally, outsourcing services' ease of business and convenience is a key factor favoring the demand for managed services worldwide.

Solution Insights

The red light & speed enforcement segment accounted for a market share of 56.19% in 2022. Additionally, these services were installed at road intersections or along roads to maintain traffic discipline. However, with advances in technology, companies began to focus on providing services that offer speed and red-light monitoring capability in a signal device. These advances in product design drove the market growth in 2020, a trend expected to continue over the next seven years. For instance, TraffiStar and Jenoptik provide combined speed monitoring and red light that uses high-resolution cameras to record traffic offenses up to four lanes. Similarly, Vitronik provides the Poliscan Red+Speed solution designed for intersection points to help monitor red lights and speed by vehicles.

Global Road Safety Market share and size, 2022

The Automatic Number/License Plate Recognition (ANPR/ALPR) segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 17.1% during the forecast period. Varied end-use applications such as road interactions, parking lots, private land, and schools, among others, are contributing factors to the large revenue share of the ANPR/ALPR segment. These solutions aid in locating a vehicle in case of theft, involvement in criminal activities, or traffic violations. The services are also known to provide 24 hour monitoring even in low light or bad weather conditions, further favoring their demand. Apart from ANPR/ALPR, the market has been segmented into speed enforcement, red light, incident detection, and response solutions.

Regional Insights

Europe held the major share of 27.04% of the target market in 2022. State-of-the-art road infrastructure coupled with high technology penetration has favored sales in Europe. The region will continue to contribute to the overall market demand with the prevalence of several players marking a strong regional presence along with a large end customer base. The road safety future is uncertain and not the same for all regions worldwide. Countries in Europe have a mature road safety approach, focusing on proactive techniques. Although the mortality rate due to road accidents is lower in Europe than the global average, it varies mainly among countries. Therefore, several countries are engaged in designing their road safety strategies to lower the risk of such fatalities. Initiatives and guidelines promoting road safety will upkeep the demand for road safety equipment in the EU.

Road Safety Market Trends by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow as the fastest-developing regional market at a CAGR of 19.6%. Growing investments in road infrastructure development and the increasing need to maintain traffic discipline is boosting regional growth. Additionally, countries such as China and India have large geographical areas and extensive roads and highways covering the region. More and more road construction & development in these countries are all together driving the market growth in the Asia Pacific region.
