Smart Transportation Market set to surpass USD 130 billion by 2024, proactive government initiatives to propel industry expansion

Smart Transportation Market growth is attributed to the worldwide government initiatives for the smart city development. Around USD 1 billion of connected things are mounted across the globe under the smart cities projects. Smart transportation being an integral part of smart cities project provides a platform for connected vehicles. The mandates set by the government, such as Directive on Intelligent Transport Systems and Bharat Stage standards, to reduce the CO2 emissions and to protect the environment also provide an impetus to the growth of the smart transportation market.

Global Smart Transportation Market is projected to surpass USD 130 billion by 2024. Increased traffic congestion, growing pollution, and high occurrences of accidents are the major factors enabling the countries to globally adopt the smart transportation system. These systems enable the integration of various smart technologies such as IoT, artificial intelligence, and smart sensors into transportation vehicles, thereby driving the market growth. The systems aid in improving the fleet & logistics management, goods & services management, driver assistance for traffic management, and automation of roadways, railways, and airways, accelerating the smart transportation adopt the smart market demand.

Roadways account for the highest share in the smart transportation market and are anticipated to dominate the market growing at a CAGR of 20 percent with USD 36 billion in 2017 to reach USD 108 billion by 2024. Approximately 1745.5 million metric CO2 emissions come from the transportation sector, accounting for 28 percent of total emissions globally. The adoption of smart transportation solutions, such as smart fuels and connected vehicles, helps in reducing the total carbon emissions and enhancing the environmental safety.

The railway sector is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period. It carries billions of tons of freight and passengers each year, which results in the development of efficient smart rail infrastructure and technologies. The government of various countries are also taking up initiatives and implementing regulations for the development of the smart railway system. In some countries including China, the government has invested USD 28 billion in various PPP projects for implementing smart railways.

Smart traffic management solutions hold the highest share in the smart transportation market with USD 9.3 billion in 2017 and are anticipated to reach USD 25.4 billion by 2024. The smart traffic management systems are inbuilt with sensors, which regulate the flow of traffic by reducing traffic congestion, pollution, and accidents, thus enhancing the smart transportation market growth. For instance, in January 2018, the China-based firm, Didi Chuxing together with Chinese traffic management authorities launched a smart city traffic management solution known as DiDi Smart Transportation Brain. This product has been adopted by more than 20 Chinese cities, facilitating the real-time data flow through AI and cloud computing technologies, improving the transportation infrastructure including the measurement of traffic flow, smart traffic signaling, and traffic management.

Smart ticketing solutions assist cities in reducing frauds, revenue loss, and maintenance costs. These solutions increase accessibility to integrated transport systems; hence, the smart ticketing market worth is expected to grow at a fast rate and reach USD 11.4 billion by 2024. They offer greater flexibility, faster transactions, and reliability by providing access to new payment types. The UK government invested USD 98 million to introduce smart ticketing in England and Wales by the end of 2018.

North America is projected to dominate the smart transportation market by 2024 due to rapid deployment of smart transportation solutions, which offer features such as real-time traffic information, parking assistance, adaptive traffic signal control, electronic toll collection, and real-time information for public transit systems. Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region in the smart transportation market owing to the government initiatives for development of smart city solutions in this region. The developed countries including Australia and Japan have already adopted smart transportation facilities as they are politically and technologically advanced.
