DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5qv78t/smart_cities)
has announced the addition of the "Smart
Cities Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends
and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.
The global market for smart cities was valued at USD 506.78 billion in
2012 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.0% during the forecast
period from 2013 to 2019.
The rapid growth in population in the urban areas due to migration from
rural areas is creating infrastructural challenges for municipalities
and governments, globally. As the urban population is growing rapidly,
the limited natural resources would be insufficient to meet the daily
needs and wants of the people across the globe. Hence, it has become
important to switch to alternative resources to fulfill the needs of
continuously growing urban population and look for energy efficient
methods to meet energy conservation. This has resulted in the emergence
of smart cities concept. On the basisof this motive, the revolution of
cities is required to address the economic, engineering, environmental
and social challenges.
Smart cities offer a set of infrastructure and new generation services
with the support of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
The concept helps the environment by reducing the amount of CO2
emissions. It aids people by saving the energy cost, making optimum
utilization of natural resources effectively and efficiently. The smart
cities concept also helps people in maintaining their information and
data safely. There are technologies embedded with features that help
identify problems at a very early stage, and subsequently improve the
safety and security of people living in the cities.
The smart cities market is driven by various factors which include
increase in migration from rural to urban areas, rising energy
consciousness and a shift towards green infrastructure. With more number
of people shifting to urban areas, there is increased pressure on urban
infrastructure networks. This creates the need for the smart city
concept which focuses on reduced use of natural resources and improved
energy efficiency. However, lack of stakeholder engagement and security
concerns are some factors that may inhibit market growth.
