Global Smart Cities Market Size to Reach USD 1,427.84 Billion in 2030 | Emergen Research

Rising demand for integrated security & safety systems for improved public safety are significant factors driving global smart cities market revenue growth

Vancouver, Sept. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global smart cities market size reached USD 457.18 billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 13.9% during the forecast period, according to latest analysis by Emergen Research. Market revenue growth is attributed to rising demand for public security, as well as favorable government initiatives in various countries to develop advanced video surveillance, real-time vehicle number plate, and facial recognition solutions used for public safety in smart cities, emphasizing the importance of monitoring to ensure people’s safety.

Increasing energy usage results in higher energy dissipation and carbon emissions, highlighting the need for more sustainable and efficient energy consumption. Concerns about global warming and ozone depletion have prompted increased government attempts to reduce the country’s carbon footprint. Furthermore, tougher emission-control rules in both developed and emerging countries are expected to support revenue growth of the market.

Furthermore, growing government initiatives and Public-Private Partnership (PPP) models for smart transportation, Internet of Things (IoT) usage, and automation are driving market revenue growth. Rising analytics penetration and ongoing technological advancements by leading players are improving consumer experience and driving market revenue growth. Smart transportation is becoming a reality owing to technological innovations in transportation, an increase in demand for autonomous cars, and development of linked cards. In addition, as urbanization increases, governments across the globe are attempting to modernize railways by focusing on the creation of smart cities.

The growing desire for city metros and ultrafast trains for long-distance transport is driving the demand for smart railroads. Significant development in construction projects is driving the logistics sector for timely transit of freight commodities. As a result, technologically advanced cargo trains are in high demand for goods transportation and logistics, which is expected to drive market revenue growth. However, the initial cost of deploying smart solutions is considerably high, and the absence of defined policies is impeding their acceptance, hence restraining market revenue growth.
