Variable Message Signs for Intelligent Transportation System Market Overview
[102 Report Pages] Real-time traffic management is of high priority in various developed and developing countries. Managing the seamless movement of traffic due to the increasing number of vehicles on the road appears to be the biggest problem in the majority of the cities. However, traffic management can be simplified with the advent of technology solutions and IoT devices. The inclusion of IT in traffic management has given rise to the concept of Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS). This system is not a software, instead an amalgamation of many tools, devices, software, and applications, along with variable message signages (VMS) that work in sync to assist the manual traffic management process. Recently, in 2019, the State Department of Transportation in St. Lawrence County, US, has deployed an additional 50 portable variable message signs to enhance storm messaging to the public on key corridors throughout the state, as complex winter storm containing heavy snow, ice, and high winds are expected. In addition, the UK Government in Keighley Town is planning to install permanent digital variable message signs in 2019 to improve the information available to drivers in the area, after months of traffic disruption due to road-widening projects.
According to Infoholic Research, the Global Variable Message Signs for Intelligent Transportation System Market revenue is estimated to increase from $16.7 million in 2018 to $21.7 million by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. The market will be driven by the increasing demand from the US and Western European countries. The Western Europe market has the strongest hold due to the presence of various large and small-scale variable messaging signs manufacturing-based industries and well-developed IT infrastructure. The US is witnessing growth due to the spending from federal and state government entities. The market in APAC is in its initial stages due to the lack of specialized variable messaging signs technology solutions and digital infrastructure in emerging economies that hamper the market growth.
