Increasing traffic congestion & road accidents and integration of infrastructure with technology are driving the growth of smart roads and bridges market; the leading technology segment – transportation management system is expected to grow at a CAGR of 23.7% and reach $1,093.3 million by 2022.

Infoholic Research LLP, a global market research and consulting organization, has published a study titled “Worldwide Smart Roads and Bridges Market – Drivers, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts: 2016–2022” (December 2016).

Smart Roads and Bridges

According to Infoholic Research, the transportation management system will continue to dominate the smart roads and bridges market. As per the study, the market will experience a significant growth in the coming years due to the increase in the traffic congestion, internet penetration, and growing demand for digital infrastructure. The increase in the ownership of the vehicle in China has made the country the mother of traffic jams and the country witnessed a traffic jam for nearly 100 kilometres that lasted long for 12 days in 2010. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.1% during the forecast period 2016–2022 to touch an aggregate of $2,660.0 million by 2022.

As per the sensors analysis, temperature sensors and anemometers are expected to outperform and reach $751.2 million and $521.1 million respectively by 2022. The temperature sensors have been the dominant sensor types for smart roads and bridges, where the revolution in sensor industry will support the growth of strain gauges in the next 5 years. The growing demand for connected infrastructure and unpredictable weather changes create significant opportunities for accelerometers. Many device manufacturers and OEMs are expected to enter the market within the next decade.

As per the deployment model, on-premise deployment model plays a major role in smart roads and bridges market mainly due to government initiatives to build secured infrastructure. The on-cloud deployment model is more advantageous and less cost compared to on-premise deployment model. It is expected in the coming years that on-cloud deployment model will be adopted more by the major technology vendors. At present, the on-premise model will be growing at an exponential rate, which is estimated to reach $2,371.4 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 23.7% during the forecast period 2016–2022.

As per the regions study, North America is set to be the leading region for smart roads and bridges market followed by Europe. Asia Pacific is set to be the emerging region for the smart roads and bridges market growth. The rising investments from regional governments, innovations in IoT technology, and increasing traffic congestion in the developing countries are expected to drive the market growth in the upcoming years.
