Market Size and Forecast (2016-2024)
Global smart parking was reached USD 2.0 Billion in 2016. The ever increasing traffic and the need to develop efficient parking solutions is expected to drive the market to grow at a CAGR of 18% over the forecast period i.e. 2016-2024 and reach a valuation of approximately USD 7.5 Billion by 2024.
The demand for off street parking constitutes the majority for the demand of smart parking systems, amounting to over 65% of the global smart parking market. The segment for parking site providers accounts for majority of the market share in overall service provider market compared to other service providers. This can be attributed to the fact that requirement for parking management and payment systems arises only when parking sites are available, thus they are secondary to the services of parking site providers.
The North American region accounts for the largest revenue share (over 30%) in the global smart parking market, owing to technological advancement in the region. The popularity of home automation devices and high volumes of cashless payments in the region can be attributed to the largest market size. Moreover, the rising number of automobiles in Canada further increase the complexities related to parking. Smart parking systems would help the end-use industries to provide smart parking facilities to the car owners.
Smart parking market in Asia-Pacific region is set to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, growing demand for automotives. Strong presence of huge automotive manufacturers such as Toyota, Suzuki and others in Asia-Pacific region is one of the major factors which are increasing the supply of automobiles in the region. This factor is raising the number of automobiles in various emerging nations such as India, China, Singapore and others.
On the hand, Europe smart parking is expected to showcase a tremendous growth over the forecast period owing to presence of major opportunities for automobile industry. Likewise, government initiatives to promote smart parking systems in Europe region is the key driver for the smart parking market in the region.
Key Drivers
Increasing car ownerships and rising traffic issues worldwide are the key factors driving the smart parking market. With rapid urbanization worldwide, traffic congestion problems and the need for effective solutions are steadily increasing. Smart parking technologies provide an array of benefits like optimized parking, reduced traffic and pollution, increased safety and decreased management costs. They also help traffic and parking management personnel to identify illegal parking and defaulters in timed parking and levy appropriate infringement charges. Simplification of payments process through digital transfers also helps to increase the revenue of parking facilities. These wide ranging benefits are driving the growth of smart parking market.
On the other hand, development of IoT (Internet of Things) and M2M technologies in recent times have enhanced the smart parking systems and further given a boost to the adoption of smart parking systems.
Market Restraints
Smart parking requires the usage of a wide array of sensors, technologies and devices which make it an expensive solution. High cost along with low awareness of the concept in several developing regions act as restraints for the market growth. Lengthy RFP (Request for Proposal) Cycles for parking services act as another disadvantage. Moreover, the complexities related to the advanced infrastructure needed for smart parking systems are hindering the growth of smart parking market.
Market Opportunities
Smart Parking is a relatively new and developing industry, with huge growth potential. In the Asia-Pacific region, there is a huge base of potential customers as population and vehicle ownership in the region increases rapidly. However, North America region dominated the global smart parking market with a major market share of more than 35% in 2016. Presence of smart parking players in U.S. further helps the end-use industries to adopt smart parking systems.
In the European region, several government initiatives like Push & Pull by the European Union to manage traffic and parking issues also open up several opportunities for players to tap on to the expected rise in demand.
