Smart City Tracker 1Q18

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

The global smart city market has evolved over the past year and is moving into a period of increasing maturity. The number of smart city strategies and projects being developed has grown substantially, and cities continue to achieve higher levels of integration among technology-driven city services and solutions. Multi-sector deployments that span several industries are becoming more and more commonplace in recently announced smart city initiatives.

On the technology front, smart street lighting is increasingly being recognized by city leaders as the first step toward the development of a smart city. Connected lighting systems enable immediate and significant energy savings through LEDs and controls while also providing a potential backbone network for cities to deploy other smart city applications and services. Additionally, smart parking systems, mobility solutions, air quality monitoring, and smart waste are becoming more commonly deployed smart city applications. These developments are happening in all major world regions, with recent surges of interest in North America and Australia, further acceleration of the Indian smart cities program, and continued development across Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East.

This Navigant Research report provides an assessment of the current state of smart city development around the globe. New projects have been added that show continued investment in open data platforms, smart grid technologies, networked LED street lights, urban mobility, energy efficient buildings, water management, and government service applications for smart cities. The report covers key industry sectors as they relate to smart cities: smart energy, smart water, smart transportation, smart buildings, and smart government. A new category, multi-sector programs, captures the evolution toward project deployments that cut across multiple industry sectors. The Tracker also segments deployments by project type, including policy initiatives, pilots/demonstrations, commercial deployments, sustainability programs, and city developments. The 355 projects included in this Tracker are segmented by region, project type, and industry sector.
