Smart Transportation Market Overview

Advanced technologies are taking people way ahead of time where unconnected traveling 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 traffic and vehicle management. As of 2015, North America has successfully provided in-flight connectivity to over 3,000 aircraft 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 the safety of people. Vehicles such as buses, trains, connected cars, and planes are providing internet connectivity to deliver efficient services to 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. The utilization of smart technologies with a concept to build up a smart city is fanatically expanding across the globe. Over 1 billion connected things are installed across the globe under smart city projects in 2015. Smart transportation is a part of a smart city where smart infrastructures are providing a platform to implement connected vehicles. Rising urbanization and investments in smart cities are strengthening the market of smart transportation. Around USD 160 billion for smart cities solutions is invested by the US Department of Transportation in 2017. These projects are intending to provide better parking and traffic management with the aim of pedestrian and driver safety.

Trends, Drivers & Challenges to Market Growth

World wide acceptance of cloud-based technologies and solutions are advancing smart transportation technology. The automotive industry is adopting cloud technology for navigation, infotainment, social connection, etc. Moreover, the storage of data is enhancing the qualitative analysis of current transportation infrastructure and helps in the implementation of smart technologies. The market of smart transportation business is driven due to upsurge in the demand for improvement in public transport facilities and safety. High penetration of connected cars is transforming the automotive industry by its high efficiency, productivity, and safety. An emerging trend of smart technology is boosting the acceptance of smart vehicles. Smart parking market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period through the end of 2030. The demand for smart parking is increased due to huge traffic congestion and lack of parking space caused by an increasing number of automobiles.  The use of smart sensors and parking meters helps the drivers to check for free parking space and reserve it in advance.

What's new in the market?

Automakers such as BMW, Tesla, Toyota, Hyundai, Daimler, etc. are adopting Bluetooth and WiFi technologies in their cars which is impelling the adoption rate of connected cars in developed countries. Emerging economies such as China and India are also registering positive business opportunities for smart transportation in the region.

Market Share by Region

North America

North America is the dominating region for the smart transportation market and accounted for 43% of the market share in 2016. U.S. federal government is immensely investing in smart cities projects. Road transportation is a major necessity of Canada. In 2015, over 30 million vehicles were registered in Canada.  An increasing number of vehicles are driving the demand for smart cities and smart transportation in Canada. As per the study performed in 2015 by AT&T Drive Studio and Ericsson, around 80% of the US and Canadian population are aware of connected cars.

Europe & Asia Pacific (APAC)

On the other hand, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region are expected to witness remarkable growth in the smart transportation market. Europe's smart transportation market was valued at USD 23.29 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach nearly USD 100 billion over the forecast period i.e. 2016-2024. A growing number of auto sales in the United Kingdom and Germany are going to mount the connected car services in the region. Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to hold a 24% share of the global smart transportation market in 2024. Nearly 10% of the total revenue of connected cars was generated from Japan and South Korea in 2016.

Latin America and Middle East & Africa (MENA)

Latin America and Middle East & Africa together are projected to hold approximately a 5% share of the smart transportation market in 2030. The number of auto-sale is increased in Brazil and Mexico from the past few decades. However, due to the lack of efficient transport infrastructure and awareness among the population is limiting the market for smart transportation in the region. Latin America's smart transportation market accounted for nearly USD 1.4 billion in 2016. Owing to the rising government investment for improvement and enhancement of transport infrastructure is expected to boost the market of smart transportation in the Middle East & Africa region.

Market Dynamics
