Smart Cities Overview

Smart Technologies and Infrastructure for Urban Innovation in Government, Energy, Water, Mobility, and Buildings:
Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

Smart cities embody the massive opportunities and challenges presented by the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The combination of ubiquitous communication, new energy solutions, innovations in transportation, and the digitization of many aspects of society mark a considerable change in economies and societies. Add to this the challenges of mitigating and adapting to climate change and the multifaceted opportunities presented by smart cities become evident. Smart cities can combine transformation in distinct operational areas (such as transportation and street lighting) and offer potential in new approaches to many previously intractable urban issues.

Smart cities are gradually instrumenting the urban fabric at every layer, and cross-sector benefits are starting to be realized. This development is demonstrated through the growing importance that cities place on data analytics and creative thinking about how to deliver efficient, effective, and sustainable services. There are strong signs that the market is entering a phase with much greater emphasis on deploying solutions at scale. This growth is reflected in the number of cities engaging in smart city projects, the growing acceptance of the fundamental benefits of key solutions, and strong policy drivers for technologies that address priority issues.

This Navigant Research report examines the evolution of the global smart city market, with a focus on five key industries: energy, water, mobility, buildings, and government. The study examines key market and technology trends, strategies, projects, competitor profiles, and regional developments. Global revenue forecasts for smart city technologies, segmented by industry and region, extend through 2028.
