Global Smart Transportation Market

Market Overview

Advanced technologies are taking people way ahead of time where unconnected travelling is transforming into a new world of connected transportation. Nowadays, vehicles are connected with Wi-Fi or sensors so that they can not only use internet connectivity but it can also guide in traffic and vehicle management. As of 2015, North America has successfully provided in-flight connectivity to over 3,000 aircrafts out of 5,500 commercial aircraft with the help of aircraft connection companies Gogo, Global Eagle, Thales/LiveTV, and Panasonic. Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the vision of transportation and ensuring safety of people. Vehicles such as buses, trains, connected cars and planes are providing internet connectivity to deliver efficient services to the consumers. For instance, Paris launched Autolib which is an electric-car program in 2011. This program facilitates the drivers to select the public parking space and also to track the connected vehicles which are embedded with sensors using GPS tracker. Utilization of smart technologies with a concept to build up a smart city is fanatically expanding across the globe. Over 1 billion of connected things are installed across the globe under smart cities projects in 2015. Smart transportation is a part of smart city where smart infrastructures are providing a platform to implement connected vehicles. Rising urbanization and investments in smart cities is strengthening the market of smart transportation. Around USD 160 billion for smart cities solutions is invested by the US Department of Transportation in 2016. These projects are intending to provide better parking and traffic management with the aim of pedestrian and driver’s safety.

Key industry players are also participating in accelerating the deployment of innovative and advance transportation systems, globally. Cubic Corporation merged with a German transportation company EssenerVerkehrs-AG to go for pilot trial of NextAgent Solution in March 2016. NextAgent system is a transport ticketing vending machine which can interact with customer linking video call. Whereas, Alstom, France based transportation solution company, is contributing in progression of rail transportation by providing advance solutions for metro and high speed trains. Top market players are targeting to launch new products and adopting strategic investments through acquisitions partnerships, which raise the competition in transportation industry. This competitiveness in business is likely to drive smart transportation market during the forecast period i.e. 2016-2024. In 2016, Panasonic partnered with Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to launch a connected vehicle program which can improve the mobility management and road safety.
