Smart Cities Market Growth & Trends

The global smart cities market size is expected to reach USD 6,965.02 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 24.2% in the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market growth can be attributed to rapid favorable government initiatives worldwide and the emergence of technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT). This has encouraged several countries to invest in smart city projects to manage infrastructure and assets. Further, the increasing adoption of Electric Vehicles (EV) has also created a demand for the development of charging infrastructure in cities globally. Due to this, it provides energy storage and creates new revenue streams from EV batteries. These benefits will further boost the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The market is at present witnessing a high investment in smart security, smart metering for utilities, integrated traffic management systems, and smart mobility. Several technologically innovative cities use IoT platforms to monitor their infrastructure, manage traffic flows, water management, parking, and air quality, and use the generated smart data to handle longer-term decisions for environmental sustainability. Furthermore, the increase in greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion is driving the adoption of smart mobility and effective energy management applications. These factors will further boost the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The market for smart cities covers several industry verticals, such as transport, water, healthcare, energy, and security. However, the cost incurred in transforming the present infrastructure acts as a restraint for several governments to continue huge investments in various sectors and departments for effective smart city projects, which may hamper the market growth. Several government bodies are investing in smart cities to improve their global and regional competitiveness to improve business, attract new residents, and make informed decisions with the help of available technologies. This will supplement the growth of the market over the forecast period.
