However, post the COVID-19 pandemic, people are expected to use their vehicles for solo travel and avoid shared mobility, including public transportation. This is expected to significantly impact the traffic congestion in numerous metro cities across the globe. The demand for smart parking systems, which can assist city administrations in efficiently managing dispersed parking spaces and helping drivers find available parking spaces, is also expected to rise with increasing traffic congestion. The capability of these systems to provide the necessary flexibility and scalability is further expected to fuel the growth. However, the lack of awareness regarding the benefits of smart parking is the main restraint for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The rise in the implementation of integrated automated solutions, combined with the advancements in wireless and digital payment technologies, is expected to contribute to market growth. Technologies utilized to implement these systems include Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, data analytics, advanced sensors, smart parking meters, and mobile applications for slot reservations and online payments. These technologies are designed to determine whether a parking lot is empty or occupied and evaluate and transmit the information to mobile and web applications. These advancements in technologies are expected to drive market growth.

The rise in poor traffic management leads to concerns regarding vehicle overcrowding and congestions in urban areas, which are the primary causes of air and noise pollution that can choke economic activities. The smart parking system provides real-time data details that can help to tackle these problems and determine the availability of parking lots. Furthermore, these systems can significantly reduce vehicular emissions as drivers unnecessarily do not have to loop around city blocks seeking parking spaces.

Growing environmental concerns, traffic congestion, and the population are causing governments around the world to look forward to the development of smart cities which will effectively improve the quality of life while aiding authorities in saving resources. As such, favorable government policies in this area are projected to contribute significantly to market growth. For instance, in April 2021, the Australian government announced funding of USD 50 million to cover the implementation of smart parking across the country.

Hardware Insights

The smart meters segment held the largest revenue share of over 40% in 2021. The world is witnessing increasing urbanization, and there is a need for on-street parking spaces across various cities globally, which led to the widespread use of parking meters. These meters track free spaces and record the number of vehicles that are parked with the help of sensors and mobile applications. Most people park vehicles on the streets for long hours. This has compelled governments to deploy smart parking meters, which also help appropriate payments for on-street parking slots.

The cameras & License Plate Recognition (LPR) segment is anticipated to emerge as the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing use of LPRs for vehicle surveillance as they greatly reduce the workforce required or amount of time to achieve these tasks. Increasing technologies such as image processing and human-computer interaction have led to cameras being increasingly deployed in smart parking systems for detecting the entry and exit of vehicles in a parking site.

Software Insights

The parking guidance system segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 75% in 2021.
