Smart City Tracker 1Q13

Global Smart City Projects by World Region,
Market Segment, Technology, and Application

The number of cities around the world embracing the smart city concept is growing rapidly. National governments and international agencies are also supporting smart city developments, often with significant investments. Suppliers have been equally active in developing and promoting new offerings to support innovation in city management. This widespread interest in smart city programs is creating a global market opportunity. The smart city embraces a complex matrix of issues, solutions, technologies, operations, and infrastructural requirements. Any survey of smart city projects needs to encapsulate this complexity.

Navigant Research’s Smart City Tracker looks at smart cities in terms of their multiple policy priorities, the areas of operational innovation, and the technologies deployed. The tracker covers major new greenfield and brownfield developments that encompass innovations across all of these sectors, as well as major policy initiatives that set the context for future technology investment. Navigant Research forecasts that the global smart city technology market will be worth $20.2 billion annually by 2020.

This Navigant Research tracker report provides a survey of the current state of smart city developments around the globe in all their diversity. In particular, the tracker covers five key industry sectors as they relate to smart cities: smart energy, smart water, smart transportation, smart buildings, and smart government. It also looks across these sectors at projects that address multiple aspects of city operations. The tracker includes 130 projects of which more than 90% are addressing issues related to energy, transportation, or government. These projects are segmented by region and by primary industry sector.
