The Smart City, also commonly known as connected city, digital city, and intelligent city are urban areas that collect electronic data from citizens, devices, and assets to manage available resources more efficiently. Smart City market technology allows city officials to interact directly with both the community as well as city infrastructure and monitor what is happening in the city to cater to the community's needs. The definition of the Smart City market can encompass energy and utility efficiency, resources allocation, physical infrastructure, governance, mobility, transport, safety, security, and healthcare. IoT technology is used to enhance the quality, performance, and interactivity of urban services, to reduce costs and resource consumption. While smart city awareness to the general public is more recent, Smart City trends point to rapidly increasing adoption in the past decade, and in the future.
Smart City Market Size and the demand for projects in the Smart City Market has been growing rapidly, especially in the large cities of Asia Pacific. This growth has been due to the increase in urbanization, the need to reduce city emissions, the need for better management of resource consumption, and the growing economic and environmental pressure on cities. Technology advances in smart building management systems, growth in Internet of Things (IoT) networks, and the fact that many city governments have transitioned to technology to monitor and optimize their resources have been instrumental in growing the Smart City Market. Smart City trends and Smart City market size will likely continue and may even accelerate with new technological advancements, particularly the implementation of 5G.
The research reports across different firms show a high disagreement on the Smart City market size. This is mainly due to the difference in defining the scope and technologies that constitute the Smart City Market. Data is not uniform as tracking investments for Smart City projects is challenging when public data is not available, which is frequently the case. There is also some disagreement on the regional share for Smart City investments, particularly because different local, state, and national governments provide different levels of data.
