Smart City Platforms Market Overview

The Global smart city platforms market is expected to grow from USD 161.2 Billion in 2022 to USD 710.5 billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 16% during the forecast period 2022-2032.

Smart city platforms are IoT-enabled solutions that enable smart city end users to gain seamless access to data across multiple functional application domains like transportation management, health and public safety, environmental, water and wastewater energy, governance, the built environment, and more.  Conventionally, these systems exist individually, with a wide variety of legacy equipment and systems.  Smart city platforms provide a single environment for managing data from all of these applications and systems, and more importantly they have the capability to analyze large amounts of data coming from these systems and turn them into actionable insights to address specific issues within the city.

Most smart city platforms today are deployed via remote server or on-premise methods and perform many functions including analytics, remote asset monitoring, performance management, decision support and/or presentation components.  They also offer increased connectivity, intelligence, reduction in costs, increased safety, investment attraction, improved sustainability, and enhanced livability among others.

The global smart city platforms market is expected to grow at a significant CAGR in the years to follow.


The growth of this market is attributed towards major pertaining factors including; the rapid evolution of smart city projects, the increasing investments by governments for smart cities projects, the rising concern for public safety, increasing focus on building effective transport & infrastructure management, the growing demand for platform providers, the increasing preference for platforms over standalone solutions and the emergence of Industry 4.0 etc.

Additionally, the rapidly increasing use of digital infrastructure by organizations to gain vital protective supplies for workers in smart city projects, as well as counsel them for rendering services safely, are producing the need for professional smart city services which include deployment and training, consulting and architecture designing, infrastructure monitoring and management services etc, which in turn, is expanding the smart city platforms market demand.

Moreover, the smart cities are said to create foundational infrastructure for the high-wage jobs of the future. This requires smart governance; a smart, educated workforce; and smart citizens; the digital transformation of assets and the deployment of sensor networks with all-area multimodal connectivity all of which are almost impossible without smart city platforms.

Furthermore, the industrial and commercial deployments of smart city platforms, the increase in the number of business parks, the spread of IoT and related innovations for simplification of processes in organizations of different verticals, increasing investments by end-users to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and attractiveness of their infrastructure and services, the increased focus of vendors on the development of compatible platforms by multiple partnerships and to ensure the platform meets the need of future conditions of environment, economic, and services are further expanding the size of this market.

However, the high costs involved in deploying the smart city platforms, the inefficient utilization of resources in developing nations and the complicated infrastructure of the smart city platforms are factors among others that are hindering the growth of this market.

More importantly, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, there has been a decline in smart city networks adoption worldwide. This market is projected to witness growth after the first half of 2021 due to investments, which will provide tremendous opportunities for growth, as COVID-19 has exposed the need for efficient technology in monitoring and managing similar situations and to provide a more resilient city infrastructure for the future.
