Global Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Market Set to Rise to US$30.2 bn by 2019; Driven by Standardization of Wireless Technologies

Albany - NY, Sept. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intelligent transportation systems integrate information and communication technologies with existing transportation networks to improve its operating efficiency and improve individuals travel experience. Dwindling transportation network expansion space and growing number of vehicle owners in metropolitan areas increases pressure on transportation authorities to improve the performance of existing transportation network. Effective use of wireless communication devices, computers, sensors, and telematics and data analysis applications in existing transportation networks reduces congestion, traveling delays and improves road user safety. In addition, ITS provides higher economic benefits in terms of reduced fuel consumptions, traveling delays and road accidents over its deployment and maintenance cost through its life. Increasing awareness about these benefits in both developed as well as developing economies is expected to spur the demand for ITS through the estimated period.

The global intelligent transportation system market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 11.1% during the period between 2013 and 2019. The valuation of the market is projected to touch US$30.2 bn by the end of the forecast horizon.

Growing Investment in Electronic Fare Collection and Dynamic Display Systems to Drive Demand for ATPS

Among the key types of intelligent transportation system, advanced transportation management systems (ATMS) have accounted for the largest share in the market owing to the rising demand for traffic control solutions such as adaptive signaling systems. “In the near future, the demand for advanced transportation pricing systems (ATPS) is expected to surge due to increase in investments in dynamic display systems and electronic fare collection,” TMR report states.

Standardization of Wireless Technologies Holds Immense Potential for Growth of Global Intelligent Transportation Systems Market

The growing demand to improve road safety is one of the primary factors behind the growth of the global intelligent transportation system market. The data released by the World Health Organization reveals that about 1.24 mn people die every year due to road traffic accidents. According to the National Safety Council, in the U.S. alone, deaths due to road traffic accidents had surged by 14% during the first half of 2015. The rise in the number of vehicles across metropolitan areas has increased the demand for upgrade of the existing transportation networks. The various benefits offered by intelligent transport systems including reduced fuel consumption and travelling delays, and decrease in the number of road accidents have led to their increased adoption by traffic management authorities across nations.
