The global market for traffic management is expected to witness 20 % CAGR over the forecast period (2017-2023). Over the past few years, traffic management has undergone changes regarding technologies being used. Traffic management is one of the significant branches in logistics which comprises services like purchasing and controlling transport services, planning and reducing the density of traffic. Traffic management system provides real-time data and the ability to respond immediately.
Current technologies in traffic management market incorporate wireless charging sensors, IOT based ITS, weather monitoring solutions, integrated machine learning, IOT for autonomous vehicles, integrated toll management systems, ITS for connected vehicles, and more.
Growth in airline traffic control volume is one of the major factors driving the market growth. The market is itself in its growth stage owing to the development and inventions of new traffic management system which is slowly replacing the outdated technology. With the increasing demand for metro railways due to rapid urbanization, the railway traffic management market will grow at a steady pace. Increasing urbanization, increasing public concern for safety, and government initiative to modify the traffic infrastructure are the key drivers fuelling the growth of this market.
The key players operating the global market for traffic management are Atkins Group (U.K.), Accenture PLC (Ireland), Cellint (Israel), Citilog (France), Cisco Systems Inc. (U.S.), and more. Cellint Traffic Solutions has announced that they have signed an agreement with Rogers Communication to launch a traffic information service country-wide in Canada.
