Road safety can be defined as a measure taken to prevent incidents on the road that could elevate the danger for road users as well as critical infrastructure along the way. Thus, technologies that enhance road safety are crucial for government bodies, taking into consideration the “cost-of-loss” resulting from the loss of life and/or infrastructural damages. Additionally, the time lost to traffic congestions due to such incidents further aggravates the concerns for civil authorities and road users alike.
Strict rules & regulations have been implemented across various cities to ensure smooth flow of traffic. Consequently, various technology vendors have been able to leverage their capabilities to enhance road safety by implementing technologies such as real-time traffic monitoring with sensors to detect speed violations, in-vehicle driver assistance, and incident detection systems in case of emergency/road accidents.
The availability of innovative technologies, including driver assistance, V2V communication, incident detection and response, and automatic number plate recognition systems, has bolstered the overall road safety ingenuities across smart city initiatives shaping up globally; thus, resulting in a huge window of opportunity for the key players in the market.
According to Infoholic Research, the global road safety market revenue is expected to reach $7.01 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of around 17.16% during the forecast period. The market is experiencing growth due to the increasing mobility and rise in the number of vehicles on the road. In addition, the construction of safer roads, development of infrastructure for the safety of pedestrians & cyclists, and the adoption of safer riding measures will further reduce injuries and contribute to the safety among the population.
