One strategy to address the problem of crime in urban areas is the "safe city concept," which is a component of the "living concept of the city."

Safe City Market - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

In other words, a "Safe City" is a concept in a city that makes use of technology to assist governments, communities, and companies in lowering the likelihood of crime and fostering a sense of security and comfort for residents. The government must first evaluate the city's level of safety before formulating the idea of a safe city.

To improve understanding of the conceptual underpinnings of the suggested paradigm, a number of related topics have been covered. The feature of Safe City technology has been examined in various studies in the literature, but in terms of numbers is still relatively small and new. The majority of studies appear to base their conclusions on simulations, with some also using survey data.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to present some attractive chances for the expansion of the safe cities business throughout the time of forecasting. This is because tendencies for digital transformation have been more prevalent during this time in various parts of the world. Additionally, different nations around the world are more likely to concentrate on strategies that can help increase safety during the post-pandemic phase. Governments are therefore anticipated to make large investments in safe city solutions in the upcoming years.

Market Growth Factors

Evolving wireless transmission

Today, wireless transmission is already prevalent and mostly saturated due to devices like mobile phones, tablet computers, and two-way radios. Large amounts of data will be able to be sent wirelessly and in real-time at faster speeds due to the trend. This includes advancements in technologies such as City Clouds, Machine Machine (M2M), Long Term Evolution (LTE), Internet Protocol (IP), and others. The emergence of the aforementioned technologies would enable seamless information sharing between government departments and agencies, cutting down on the time required for any activity to be processed.

Rising demand for enhanced natural resource management

Urbanization and population are rapidly increasing all over the world. It is predicted a large part of the world's population will reside in cities or urban centers in near future, which will likely contribute significantly to resource scarcity. Urbanization is also expected to increase significantly in the next years as cities are the main drivers of economic growth in the majority of nations. Innovation and digital technology must be utilized to reduce energy consumption and enhance the quality of life in order to deal with the rise in urbanization and climate change challenges.

Market Restraining Factors

Adoption of a safe city could be expensive

Due to the high cost of establishing these systems, economies that have limited financial resources will not be capable of implementing smart city solutions in the context of safe cities. Significant amounts of coding, design, testing and documentation work are required in order to successfully integrate large functions like big data analytics. There is a disincentive for governments to continue making large-scale investments due to the cost that is invested in the transformation of the current infrastructure.

Component Outlook

Based on component, the safe city market is segmented hardware, software and services. The services segment acquired a significant revenue share in the safe city market in 2021. The services segment provides a number of advantages, including simple installation, adaptable payment options, personalized solutions, and strong after-sales support. In order to provide safe city solutions, several governments are changing. This is motivating market participants to introduce their new safe city solution offerings in order to enhance the perception of their brands.

Technology Outlook

On the basis of technology, the safe city market is fragmented into command & control systems, cybersecurity, public safety communications, emergency management system (EMS), video surveillance & analytics, location tracking system, data center infrastructure, and physical identity & access management (PIAM). In 2021, the video surveillance segment witnessed the largest revenue share in the safe city market. In order to handle traffic and crowds in the world's biggest cities, city police departments are implementing cutting-edge video surveillance systems. Players are being forced to engage in R&D for technical advancements by the rise in video surveillance & analytics technology providers in order to strengthen their brand identification and survive in this fiercely competitive market.
