It emphasizes connectivity and uses improved communication networks, including high-speed internet and the Internet of Things (IoT) devices, to allow seamless data exchange between various systems and services, which facilitates real-time monitoring and control, allowing city authorities to make informed decisions and respond swiftly to changing circumstances. They integrate smart transportation systems, which can include intelligent traffic management, global positioning-based GPS-based navigation, and real-time public transportation updates, which reduce traffic congestion, improve commute times, and enhance overall mobility. These cities deploy smart grids, renewable energy sources, and energy-efficient technologies to reduce energy consumption and minimize their environmental footprint. This helps combat climate change and also leads to cost savings for residents. Besides, public services in smart cities are often optimized through digital solutions.

Middle East Smart Cities Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by rapid urbanization and the increasing number of individuals moving from rural areas to cities in search of better economic opportunities. This influx of urban residents has put pressure on existing infrastructure and services.
