Traffic Management Systems Market: Growing Need For Real Time Information Systems And Rise In Focus of Government Investment

Press Release   •   Jan 05, 2018 16:46 IST

Road authorities deploy advanced traffic management systems to maximize operation performance and reliability of all aspects of road networks such as traffic management, control, and surveillance. Traffic management systems include urban and inter-urban systems, vehicle detection systems, ramp metering systems, bridge traffic management systems, and tunnel traffic management systems. Transportation systems play an important role in a country’s economic and social development. Metropolitan cities around the world are facing a challenge from increasing traffic jams due to continuous increase in population, increase in vehicle ownership, and limited road networks. This results in increased fuel wastage, traffic time, and monetary losses. According to Texas A&M Transportation Institute, on an average, Americans spend more than 5 billion hours in traffic and purchase an extra 3 billion gallons of fuel, costing more than USD 120 billion per year. According to the European Commission’s department for Mobility & Transport, congestion costs Europe 1% of its GDP every year. Congestion costs China about 4% to 5% of its GDP. Traffic jams are a major problem in several other major economies across the world, which significantly affects their economic and social growth. Deployment of ATMS in urban and inter-urban road networks improves the efficiency of utilizing existing road networks. This minimizes financial burden on transportation authorities and governments by reducing necessary investments required for road network expansions for congestion control. This benefit fuels the demand for traffic management solutions across the world.
