Executive Summary - Key Findings of the Study

1 Around XX global cities and more than XX sustainable cities are to developed by 2025. Around XX% of these smart cities will be from North America and Europe.

2 The smart city market will be valued at $trillion in 2020. Out of this share, XX% of projects is likely to be in the smart governance and smart education segment.

3 The need for complex and integrated citywide solutions will drive and foster convergence in the smart city space. Companies will actively partner and converge with other players in the smart city ecosystem to create and offer intelligent services. Convergence between pure-play product vendors,
networking companies, and system integrators will create the most smart solutions in the market.

4 As cities evolve into clusters of smart communities, the importance of ICT participants will increase as a fresh league of such companies begin to participate in areas, such as smart energy, industrial automation, and building technology that were previously not envisioned by traditional leaders in
these spaces. Similarly, utility providers will begin to compete with telecom providers while deploying ICT network within a city.

5 Smart cities will be measured on the level of intelligence and integration of infrastructure connecting sectors of healthcare, energy, buildings, transportation, and governance. The construction of this ICT network will have XX main models: BOO, BOT, BOM, and Open Network.

6 The smart energy segment will witness the highest growth rate by 2020. With a CAGR of XX%, the market is anticipated to be valued at XX$ billion, constituting % of the global smart city market.

7 Smart mobility solutions are likely to be in high demand in the next years. Latin America, Middle East and Africa, and Central and Eastern Europe will be the growing segments, at XX%, XX%, and XX%, respectively, by 2025.

8 eServices to Citizens, such as ePayments, eExchange, eSharing, etc., will empower citizens with real-time access to personal data and related services. More than XX% of citizens of smart cities will have full access to eServices in the next years.

9 All smart city market participants will assume one or more of the four main roles in the ecosystem: integrators (the end-to-end service provider); network operators (the M2M and connectivity providers); product vendors (hardware and asset providers); and managed service providers (thirdparty
providers overseeing management/operation of smart solutions/services).

10 The pace of smart city market development will depend on how quickly companies converge and tap into each other’s industry value chains. In addition to identifying best partners, the first mover advantage in offering integrated solutions to city governments will also become vital as cities look
for centralized operation centres. Cloud-based smart city services, in this context, will become imperative.
