Market Report Description

The Global Smart Transportation Market size is expected to reach $190.6 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 9.9% CAGR during the forecast period.

Smart transportation IoT solutions, along with smart city solutions, enable government organizations and their partners to improve community resources and transportation for everyone, resulting in a safer, more efficient transportation infrastructure in cities. In addition, smart transportation IoT solutions provide real-time visibility and reliable data, allowing city transportation authorities and companies to enhance efficiency while also creating smarter, greener cities for their residents. Smart transportation is defined as the vertical application of IoT capabilities in transportation systems and hence refers to the integrated use of current technologies and management tactics. These technologies are targeted at delivering cutting-edge services in the areas of transportation and traffic management. It allows consumers to be better informed and to use transportation networks in a safer and more efficient manner.

The most important factors for the growth and development of the Smart transportation system industry are government laws and initiatives. Governments all over the world, particularly in the United States, Europe, Russia, China, and Brazil, are legislating the installation of factory-fitted telematics and safety systems in vehicles as a result of rise in the road safety concerns and auto thefts.

Rapid urbanization has resulted from the world's rising population, causing a slew of issues such as traffic congestion and road safety concerns. The need to provide a long-term solution to these issues is gaining popularity around the world. Smart transportation is becoming a reality due to cloud-based technology and advancements in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-grid infrastructure (V2I). As the world's population continues to rise, a growing number of cities are finding it difficult to accommodate both residents and visitors. Congested streets and higher pollution have an influence on city people’s health and well-being.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on all markets and dealt a serious blow to the transportation industry. The transportation business has suffered a significant loss as a result of most governments adopting isolation policies. Governments in many regions declared complete lockdown and temporary industry shutdowns, resulting in border restrictions that hampered the movement of transportation and logistics services. Toll and fare collections have been discontinued in nations like China and the United States. For cars conveying emergency supplies and vital personnel, China is likewise introducing a no-stop, no-check, toll-free regime. With an increase in demand for proper traffic management systems and increased transportation infrastructure amenities for passenger safety, industry players have embraced creative methods to increase growth potential in the worldwide smart transportation market.

Market Growth Factors

High need for the consistent flow of traffic and time-efficiency

One such essential feature is smart transportation, which attempts to deliver innovative services connected to various forms of transportation and traffic control systems. It makes transportation easier and faster by utilizing Smart systems like sensing technologies, wireless communications, real-time data, and computing technologies. This saves time in transportation solutions such as traffic management and ticket management systems. Furthermore, fleet operators are progressively adopting novel information and communication technology (ICT) applications like fiber optics, a global positioning system (GPS), and the Internet of Things (IoT), among others, due to their significant benefits.

Efforts towards the development and support of green fuels

To accomplish economic growth, social development, and decreased environmental losses, effective transportation systems are required for national prosperity. In Asia, more than half of the world's urban population lives in cities, with some nations, such as India and China, having more than a billion people living in cities alone. According to the Chinese Ministry of Infrastructure Development, a contemporary national comprehensive transportation network that is fast, cost-effective, green, Smart, advanced, and reliable is scheduled to be mostly finished by 2035. Furthermore, to meet the European Union's (EU) aim of a 37.5 percent reduction in emissions by 2030, the French government is relying on electric and hydrogen vehicles and aircraft.

Market Restraining Factors

Absence of centralized and uniform technology.

Smart transportation systems are made up of a variety of components, such as different technologies, hardware, and software, all of which are available from a variety of vendors. As a result, there is a lack of standardization and uniformity in the solutions, which causes compatibility problems. Moreover, different countries and regions have distinct communication and network standards and protocols, which makes it difficult for vendors to sell their products worldwide. For example, in the European region, rules are inconsistent or non-existent when it comes to collecting and analyzing data flow. To facilitate the global adoption of traffic management technologies, a uniform protocol for communication and workflow for traffic management systems is required.

Smart Transportation Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2021

Component Outlook

Based on Component, the market is segmented into Solution (Traffic Management System, Parking Management & Guidance System, Ticketing Management System, and Integrated Supervision System) and Services (Business, Professional, and Cloud Services). The Services segment held a significant revenue share of the Smart Transportation Market in 2021. In a competitive market, unplanned downtime and application failure can result in a customer's trust being lost. To boost the agility, compatibility, and availability of smart transportation solutions, industry players are cooperating with support and maintenance service providers. The rapidly changing dynamics of the marketplace are prompting businesses to choose support and maintenance services in order to provide their clients with superior transportation solutions.

Transportation Type Outlook

Based on Transportation Type, the market is segmented into Roadways, Railways, Airways, and Maritime. The Roadways segment held the maximum revenue share of the Smart Transportation Market in 2021. This is because of the technology's capacity to reduce traffic congestion and increase road safety by effectively monitoring and managing vehicular traffic. Reduced crash rates and increased road safety for drivers, passengers, and pedestrians are two primary driving factors for smart transportation systems on highways. Highways are increasingly being outfitted with modern radar and in-pavement warning lights that alert approaching motorists. The Department of Transportation (DOT) is churning out new ways to relieve traffic congestion on roads, such as ramp metering.
