A smart city refers to a city that efficiently deploys its Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure to improve the quality of life, along with augmented efficiency in urban operations and services, thereby ensuring that the needs of present and future generations for economic, social, and environmental aspects are met. An existing city can be considered smart only if it adheres to the following components: smart transportation, smart buildings, smart utilities, and smart citizen services. MarketsandMarkets forecasts the Smart Cities Market size to grow from USD 410.8 billion in 2020 to USD 820.7 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.8% during the forecast period.
Among focus areas, the smart transportaion segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Transportation is a critical and essential part of any smart city project, as it is the main stake for fast and sustainable growth of an economy, allowing people to swiftly travel from one destination to another, alongside enabling goods and services to be effectively delivered. The smart transportation solutions provide an essential boost to the existing and new transportation infrastructural projects considering several factors, such as the rapid increase in urban demographics and the growing environmental concerns. The transportation systems are designed and implemented for smart cities and combine cutting-edge technologies to provide platforms that deliver real-time online information about the traffic flow and passengers/commuters. These solutions also enable efficient monitoring and smooth running of public as well as freight traffic to and from cities, thereby reducing delays/lags and cutting down overhead costs, such as maintenance. They also allow better management of peak traffic conditions, as well as, predict and prepare for heavy and lean traffic periods.

Among smart buildings focus area, the services segment is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period
The smart building services allow building administrators to plan and implement smart building solutions with minimum effort. Smart building solutions implemented with the help of professional service providers can be very effective and efficient. The benefits of employing smart building services include the need for implementing optimal solutions, resulting in improved building performance, reduced energy, and reduced operational expenditure (OPEX). The complex nature of various smart technologies deployed across cities and the need for custom solutions to implement smart city solutions in different cities are driving the demand for consulting and deployment and integration services.
