Posted by VISHAL PAHURKAR on December 15th, 2020

The United Nations data suggests that the proportion of people living in cities across the world will rise from approximately 50% in 2018 to 75% in 2050. This rise in urban population impacts overall infrastructure and resources as governments are trying to cope up with the influx of new inhabitants and improve their living standards. They are thus looking forward to development of smart cities, with key focus on digital transformation of urban ecosystem to meet environmental, financial, and social outcomes. In line with this, the global smart cities market was valued at ~US$ 900 Bn in 2018, and is projected to expand at a whopping 18% CAGR during the forecast period (2019-2029).

However, lack of infrastructure development in various countries of the Middle East & Africa and Latin America, coupled with high price point associated with replacement of existing infrastructure with smart infrastructure, will remain thee key factors limiting the growth of smart cities market.
