  • Published Date: August 30, 2019

Smart Transportation Market size is set to exceed USD 130 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The smart transportation market growth is due to rising adoption of connected vehicle technologies to assist in public safety. The rise in traffic congestion due to the growth of passenger & commercial vehicles market and the increasing road accidents has led to the rise in demand for real-time traffic navigation and control systems to promote road safety. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 1.35 million people die each year due to traffic crashes. In 2017, as per the National Safety Council, around 40,000 people were killed in road accidents with an increase of around 6% from 2015. The rapid surge in the number of passenger and commercial cars in the countries including the U.S., China, Japan, Germany, India, and South Korea has accelerated the need for the deployment of smart transport solutions such as smart parking and smart traffic management. These solutions are widely adopted by transport authorities to bring improvements to the infrastructure.


The airways segment in smart transportation market is expected to exhibit a growth rate of over 20% due to factors such as technological advancements and rising affluence in developing & developed economies. Airways is the most preferred mode of long-distance transportation for both passengers and freight as they help in covering larger distances in lesser time and provide traveling convenience.
