Report Overview

The global smart transportation market size was valued at USD 101.26 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6% from 2022 to 2030. The market growth is driven by increasing innovative city projects, government programs toward reducing the effects of greenhouse gases, and the need for technology in traffic management systems. Lack of safe public transportation, poor management of public transportation, increased road safety concerns, and poor traffic management are some of the factors significantly driving the demand for smart transportation.

U.S. smart transportation market size, by solution, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

Smart transportation is a cutting-edge technological application that provides various transportation and traffic management services. It has become an integral part of everyday life due to increased accidents and traffic in different countries. Smart transportation systems make it easier to use more informed, safer, coordinated, and smart transportation networks. The market has witnessed significant growth in applying modern technologies in vehicles and transportation infrastructure to help enhance traffic management, increase safety, and facilitate a more intelligent use of transportation networks.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on several economies across the world. Government-imposed nationwide lockdowns and quarantines to reduce the spread of the virus negatively affected enterprises worldwide, including the smart transportation market. Companies' ability to transport people was hampered by travel restrictions enforced to prevent the spread of the virus. As a result, transportation revenues plummeted. However, travel businesses are increasingly focused on data-driven decisions to improve their services and re-establish rider trust.

The extended downtime and high capital required for replacing existing infrastructure are anticipated to hinder the market growth over the forecast period. Due to the lack of a standardized strategy, smart transportation combines numerous aspects, such as hardware, software, and mobile network components developed by multiple manufacturers, resulting in compatibility concerns. Furthermore, communication protocols differ significantly between countries, posing challenges for firms seeking global adoption of their products.

Solution Insights

The traffic management segment accounted for the largest market share of over 33% in 2021 and is projected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period. Traffic management systems facilitate a high level of safety and management of traffic congestion, lower energy consumption, reduce pollution, reduce delays in transit, and increase the security of citizens in the city. A critical traffic management system includes an intelligent signaling system, route guidance system, traditional signaling & video surveillance system, and intelligent video management system.

The parking management segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. These systems include ticket dispensers either at entry or exit, a decentralized payment collection system, and an exit ticket reader. The segment is driven by the adoption of cloud-based parking solutions and rising off-street parking. For instance, jurisdictions have reinstated parking fees for off-street parking owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. In May 2020, Lancaster City Council restored parking charges in some of its off-street parking lots.

Service Insights

The cloud services segment accounted for the largest market share of over 42% in 2021. The cloud services segment is anticipated to retain its dominance over the forecast period owing to the rising difficulty of capturing and handling massive amounts of data generated by mobile technology and sensors. Smart transportation systems collect data from various sources and share it with a centralized control center with the help of cloud technology. The increased use of machine learning/data analytics, IoT, and cybersecurity is expected to positively impact smart transportation ventures over the forecast period.

Global smart transportation market share, by service, 2021 (%)

The demand for professional services in the market is increasing significantly as they provide implementation support, design advice, and strategy formulation, among others. These benefits are expected to contribute to the segment growth. The growing demand for consulting services has facilitated upgrading of existing systems to advanced methods, resulting in a surge in the demand for professional services. With the help of professional services in the market, traffic management, parking management, and other solutions can be quickly assisted with better guidance and informed decisions.

Regional Insights

The North American market accounted for over 33% of the global market share in 2021. Growing government investments in transportation infrastructure are likely to boost the regional market growth over the forecast period. The Asia Pacific market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to government initiatives. Countries such as China, India, South Korea, and Japan are witnessing higher growth rates compared to the countries in the rest of the world. The Indian government's plan to establish 100 smart cities is expected to create new growth opportunities for businesses.

The European region is expected to present significant opportunities for industry expansion owing to the early adoption of technology and rising traffic congestion. Factors such as increased car use and increased demand for efficient transportation are predicted to accelerate the intelligent transportation industry growth. The regional market is expected to benefit from significant technological advancements in semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles. The market is expected to be challenged by the lack of internet penetration in developing nations and spend on modernizing the existing infrastructures.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market is highly competitive with several players catering to different sectors. The presence of established players is a crucial factor deterring potential players from entering the market.
