Smart City concept is an emerging solution which holds the ability to optimize the efficiency of city operations and connect to citizens, manage urban flows, transform the administration and support of living and working environments and also improve public safety.
Basically, it is an urban setting which by using different electronic methods and integration of technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data, cloud storage, and data analytics, collects and analyzes data and use the gained insights to manage assets, resources, and services efficiently for enhancing the living conditions of the residents.
It makes use of hardware components, such as chips, sensors and actuators, and software solutions like user interfaces (UIs), communication networks and the Internet of Things (IoT) devices to make life more efficient, controllable, economical, productive, integrated, and sustainable.
The global smart cities market is expected to grow at a tremendously flourishing CAGR over the next few years.
The growth of this market is attributed towards major relying factors including; the rising need for public safety and communication infrastructure, the rising urban population, the proliferation of smart city projects in emerging economies, the growing initiatives and support from central/federal governments, city governments, and dedicated governing bodies, the increasing implementation of different Public Private Partnership (PPP) models such as BOO, BOT, OBM, and BOM, the advancements in the field of artificial intelligence, the increasing global urbanization, the increasing need for high-speed internet connectivity and the growing requirement of resource management for sustainable development etc.
Additionally, the demand for sustainable infrastructure owing to increasing population and urbanization are boosting the adoption of intelligent mobility and efficient energy management applications which is therefore prompting countries across the world to invest in smart city projects. Also, new initiatives and advancements, including Greenfield, are developed around cities to minimize the increasing pollution levels, which, in turn is adding to the market growth.
Moreover, the growing adoption of IoT enabled devices and related technology by public & private smart city developers, globally enhances the development of monitoring systems across remote and less developed areas in different regions. This comprehensively drives growth in the smart cities market.
Furthermore, the need for developing resilient cities, saving energy and building, increasing investments in R&D activities to introduce new technologies for connected infrastructure in cities, the development of technologies such as electric vehicles and renewable energy systems, increasing deployment of smart grids for the optimal utilization of energy, decrease in the price of connected devices, the expansion of various automation product portfolios by manufacturers and the increasing demand for smart healthcare, smart utility and smart governance further fuels the growth of this market.
However, factors such as privacy and security concerns over IoT and the requirement of high initial investment are restraining the growth of this market.
More importantly, with the outbreak of COVID-19, the adoption of IoT in smart city focus areas, such as smart utilities and smart citizen services, is anticipated to augment the adoption of smart city solutions as various authorities globally are majorly focused on monitoring the health, safety, and living standard of the citizens.
