The global passenger information system market size is expected to grow from USD 26.5 billion in 2022 to USD 46.2 billion by 2027, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.8% during the forecast period. The proliferation of mobile Wi-Fi and the increase in the prevalence of smartphones and other handheld devices have led to a shift in the focus on mobile PIS solutions, as it offers the passengers the opportunity of easy and rapid information access. With the increase in the number of smartphone users and enhanced connectivity across the globe, passenger experiences have improved, with a rise in overall efficiency.

COVID-19 has been one of the biggest global challenges of the current generation. The ongoing projects were paused due to a decline in the budgets. The projects, which were highly strategic initiatives and projects involving technologies directly linked to COVID-19, were not put on hold. The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the supply chains worldwide, as well as the global trade and the transportation industry. COVID-19 has already had a negative impact on tourism, national trade, and overall productivity globally. These factors would affect the growth of the transportation industry and, in turn, the growth of the PIS market in the region. Due to the pandemic, the preference for contactless fare payments by passengers for transportation has increased. The rise in the adoption of smart payment options has enabled safe and seamless travel for passengers.

The roadways transportation mode is estimated to account higher CAGR during the forecast period
Smart transportation is growing in popularity, given the technology’s ability to ease congestion and improve road safety by effectively monitoring and managing vehicular traffic. Buses are a primary mode of public transport in various countries, such as the US, Canada, Germany, the UK, China, India, and Australia. There are a large number of buses in the transportation sector, and PIS solutions are increasingly being adopted in buses for reliable and safe service offerings to enhance the overall transit operations. The increase in awareness of benefits offered by PIS solutions among fleet operators is further projected to drive the growth of the market.

Deployment and integration services are expected account for the largest market share during 2022
The deployment and integration services help identify the need for the adoption or upgradation to support the PIS solutions in the existing infrastructure to avoid restrictions of this software. These services help in speed deployment, save time and cost, enable efficient working, and minimize deployment-related disruptions. The adoption of deployment and integration services can help transit service providers to improve overall efficiency, along with decreasing operational costs. With time, deployment and integration services would increase as more transit service providers focus on installing new IT systems by replacing or integrating legacy systems with new and technologically advanced solutions.

Among regions, APAC to hold higher CAGR during the forecast period
The growth of the passenger information system market in APAC is highly driven by the technological advancement across the region. China is anticipated to be the leading country for passenger information system Market growth in Asia Pacific, followed by India. The increase in the population growth rate in the region has intensified the need for transformation and expansion of the existing public transportation infrastructure, which has led to a rise in demand for PIS solutions. The developing transportation sector, railway routes, bus stations, and airports are likely to create a demand for PIS in the region. It has been observed that transit agencies in the region are using advanced technology systems for improved service offerings to attract and encourage passengers to use public transport systems. As public transport for commuting in countries, such as Japan, China, and India, play a major role, it is projected to create a high demand for the PIS market in the coming years.
