Global Smart Highway Market to Reach US$ 93.3 Billion by 2027, Impelled by the Increasing Need for Sustainable Highways

Published on Oct 04, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Smart Highway Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global smart highways market reached a value of US$ 34.8 Billion in 2021. Smart highways are routes that use cutting-edge technologies for better traffic management and flow. These are equipped with solar panels, closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, speed and acoustic sensors, and digital signage that are powered by big data, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT). These technologies are incorporated into roads to improve the connection between two or more autonomous vehicles running on the same track and monitor the road more closely. Several benefits of smart highways include improving mass transit systems, minimizing driving time, reducing road accidents, and enhancing traveler safety and the desire for travel.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
