The smart city is a complex confluence of several existing markets and a driver for new, emergent solutions. The smart city sector is also attracting a diverse range of suppliers, which makes a comparison of their strengths and capabilities a challenging exercise. However, such comparisons are necessary to differentiate between the various approaches presented to customers and to support city leaders evaluating suppliers in terms of their smart city vision and products.
The widespread interest in smart city programs is creating a global market opportunity. Navigant Research forecasts that the global smart city technology market will grow from $6.1 billion in annual revenue in 2012 to $20.2 billion by 2020. Five segments are the focus for smart city investment: smart energy, smart water, smart transportation, smart buildings, and smart government.
