For the scope of this report, smart parking is defined as a vehicle parking system where a set of hardware devices and software assist the driver finding a parking spot, signaling available locations and assisting the driver in parking the vehicle. Smart parking includes both driver assistance systems (mentioned as “automotive park assist” throughout the report) that are inside the vehicle (such as sensors, display systems, etc.) as well as smart parking equipment and solutions (such as cameras, sensors, etc.) installed in the parking lot (both on-street and off-street) (this is mentioned as “assisted parking” throughout the report).
The report includes information about manufacturers and suppliers of smart parking technology products, and both are discussed and analyzed in the report. Also, the report talks about large companies that offer smart parking sensors and other products. The report also discusses companies that provide smart parking equipment and solutions through partnership with other niche technology providers. Additionally, the coverage includes various strategic initiatives and strengths of companies that are expected to help them move forward in this market.
To calculate and segment the market, BCC Research has considered both hardware (equipment) and services in the smart parking technologies sector. Along with product and solutions revenue, BCC Research has also considered services revenue that a company reports within its total revenue. However, the report has excluded software, which may form a very small portion of the market and whose market value is deemed to be insignificant compared with equipment and services.
The report includes distinct types of companies such as:
- Parking sensors and related component manufacturers.
- Large automotive technology providers.
- Other large technology companies.
- Other manufacturers that market smart parking technologies as their own.
In the services segment, the report covers all forms of services such as professional services, deployment and integration, as well as support and maintenance. However, stand-alone service providers that provide post sales services are out of scope of this report. Additionally, the report also excludes sales of individual components used in smart parking solution that constitute a very small part of the overall market. Further, the report does not include revenue from those automotive companies that do not have smart parking technologies and solutions of their own.
