Dublin, March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Smart Cities Market by Focus Area, Smart Transportation, Smart Buildings, Smart Utilities, Smart Citizen Services (Public Safety, Smart Healthcare, Smart Education, Smart Street Lighting, and E-Governance) and Region - Forecast to 2028" report has been added to *'s* offering.

The global smart cities market is estimated to be USD 549.1 billion to USD 1,114.4 billion at a CAGR of 15.2% from 2023 to 2028. The proliferation of high-speed internet connectivity and mobile devices facilitates the adoption of smart city technologies and enables seamless communication between various systems and devices.

*By smart utility solution, distribution management registers higher CAGR during the forecast period*

Adopting efficient demand response management (DRM) systems heavily influences utility distribution management in the utilities sector. These DRM systems empower utilities to effectively implement Demand Response (DR) programs across various commercial, industrial, and residential sectors. The surge in smart grid implementations is pivotal in driving utility industry advancements. This surge has led to the widespread integration of advanced metering infrastructure meters, improved customer utility management systems, transmission and distribution infrastructure automation, and greater incorporation of renewable energy sources. As a result, the smart grid rollout emerges as a key driver propelling growth within the utilities sector.

Additionally, the advent of automated Demand Response (DR) systems has further bolstered market expansion. The allure of cost-effective solutions such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and the adoption of cloud-based DRM deployment models present significant growth opportunities for the market. These factors collectively contribute to the upward trajectory of the distribution management segment within the smart cities market.

*By smart building solution, security and emergency management to account for largest market share in the smart cities market during the forecast period*

In urban environments, unforeseen events such as natural disasters, terrorist threats, and criminal activities pose significant challenges. To mitigate the impact of these emergencies, cities require robust emergency management systems capable of swift and efficient response protocols. Within this context, effective security infrastructure management plays a crucial role in overseeing the security operations of various facilities. Advanced computerized emergency management systems have emerged as invaluable tools for authorities and administrators navigating emergencies. These systems are designed to seamlessly coordinate every aspect of the emergency response process, from initial incident logging to disseminating vital information to relevant personnel. By providing real-time updates on the nature and scale of emergencies, these solutions enable authorities to mount rapid and targeted responses, minimizing potential damages and ensuring public safety.
