The global Smart Pole market size is expected to be worth around US$ 36.55 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Smart Pole market size was valued at US$ 6.45 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 19.10% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.
Continued urbanization and the subsequent need to manage assets and infrastructure efficiently are driving the demand for smart poles. The rollout of projects in different parts of the world also bodes well for the growth of the market. According to a study conducted by the Consumer Technology Association, smart city spending across the globe reached USD 34.35 billion in 2020.
Several government bodies worldwide are pursuing initiatives to provide Wi-Fi connectivity in public areas and are deploying smart poles for the purpose. For instance, in February 2018, smart poles offering Wi-Fi connectivity were installed in Kalaburagi, India as part of the efforts to provide free Wi-Fi connectivity for citizens at selected places. Similarly, in February 2020, smart poles featuring the latest technology were installed in London, the U.K. in Hampton as part of the government’s digital transformation project to provide Wi-Fi connectivity to citizens.
Smart poles are also being installed for monitoring air quality in the wake of the deteriorating ambient air quality in urban areas in different parts of the world. Several people across the world are suffering from various disorders stemming from the deteriorating quality of the ambient air. Smart poles can potentially play a decisive role in addressing the air quality issues in urban areas by monitoring environmental parameters, such as humidity, temperature, and concentration of fine air particles, and help in assessing the quality of ambient air. The data provided by the smart poles can help the citizens in limiting their exposure to air pollution and the authorities in improving the quality of the ambient air quality.
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to adversely affect the growth of the market. Construction and infrastructure development projects are confronting a slowdown owing to the lockdowns imposed in different parts of the world as part of the efforts to arrest the spread of the disease. For instance, during the COVID 19 situation, the U.K. government had announced the shutdown of construction sites with more than 50 workers. The shutdown of construction sites thereby leads to a decrease in the demand for smart poles requirements.
The hardware segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for a share of more than 57.0% of the global revenue. Nowadays, smart poles are embedded with air quality sensors to help in monitoring the ambient air quality in cities. Various air quality sensor providers are aggressively developing sensors for smart poles. For instance, in January 2020, Signify, an electrical and electronics manufacturer, presented its BrightSites Smart Poles at the Smart City Expo World Congress convened in Barcelona, Spain. BrightSites Smart Poles feature technology developed by Kunak Technologies, a wireless sensor network provider, for monitoring air quality and noise quality in smart cities.
The solution segment is anticipated to register the fastest growth over the forecast period. The demand for smart poles is rising owing to the benefits, such as a reduction in maintenance cost and energy consumption, they can potentially offer. The segment is expected to grow over the forecast period in line with the growing number of installed smart poles globally. According to a study conducted by the Northeast Group, worldwide total smart pole installation is expected to increase from around 317 million in 2020 to 363 million by 2027.
The controller segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for a share of more than 29.0% of the global revenue. Conventional controllers are configured in smart poles to operate in a preprogrammed manner. The controller switches on/off the light according to the user-defined settings. These controllers are implemented in a simple control circuit that works on a processor consisting of one or more associated circuits, programmed microprocessors, or sensor inputs. The controllers are implemented inside the smart poles and are used to operate streetlights in various modes according to the time, environment, and traffic factors.
The lighting lamp segment is expected to register the fastest growth over the forecast period. Smart lamp poles can perform the basic lighting functions while reducing the public expenditure required to provide Wi-Fi or 5G connectivity, intelligent lighting, security monitoring, and electric car charging, among other facilities. Smart LED light poles are being installed in several cities across the world. For instance, in February 2019, San Diego, a city in the U.S. state of California, with partners, such as GE, worked on deploying intelligent sensor nodes on street light poles. The technology from Current, powered by GE and Intel is deployed in 2,000 smart nodes.
The retrofit installation segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for a share of more than 59.0% of the global revenue. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the smart city initiatives being pursued by various governments to install digital signage, Wi-Fi hot spots, security cameras, and environment monitoring systems on existing light poles. Meanwhile, the existing street poles are being replaced with enhanced LED lamps working on solar power. For instance, in June 2020, Signify, a smart lighting company, proposed a replacement of approximately 500,000 streetlights in New York, U.S. with new LED technology by 2028.
The new installation segment is expected to register the fastest growth over the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the continued installation of smart poles across various countries worldwide. For instance, in May 2020, Sumitomo Corporation, an investment management company, announced an agreement with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government for trial installation and verification of the smart poles being installed by the government. The agreement envisaged Sumitomo Corporation together with NEC Corporation, an information technology company, installing smart poles of two types in Tokyo’s Nishi-Shinjuku area by the end of June 2020.
The public places segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for a share of more than 39.0% of the global revenue. Several cities across various regions, including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East and Africa, are increasingly deploying connected streetlights. According to a study conducted by IoT Analytics GmbH, in 2018, 500,000 connected streetlights in the U.S. state of Miami and 280,000 connected streetlights in Paris, France. The growing government initiatives to reduce the cost of technologies, reduced carbon dioxide emission, among others, are some of the major factors driving the segment growth.
The highways and roadways segment is anticipated to register the highest growth over the forecast period. The growing number of smart roads being developed across the globe is expected to emerge as one of the major factors driving the growth of the segment. In countries such as India, transport authorities are installing SmartLife poles on hairpin bends and sharp turns to avoid accidents on blind turns. These poles use electromagnetic waves and radar sensors to determine the speed of vehicles and alert the drivers about the cars coming from the opposite direction.
North America dominated the smart pole market in 2020 and accounted for a share of over 30.0% of the global revenue. The aggressive deployment of connected streetlights in the region is expected to create growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period. According to the statistics provided by the IoT Analytics GmbH, installations of connected streetlights in North America are expected to reach 14.4 million by 2023. The shipments of connected streetlights hardware, including LED lighting, controllers, and gateways, among others, are also expected to surpass 9 million units by 2023. The initiative being pursued by the U.S. government to deploy 18 million connected streetlights by 2028 is expected to drive the growth of the regional market.
Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. The continued increasing deployment of smart poles in countries, such as China and India, is expected to contribute to the growth of the regional market. Governments of various Asian nations are increasingly investing in smart city projects in current days. For instance, China invested USD 77.40 billion in the National Smart City Program to deploy big data, IoT, cloud computing, and other smart systems. The continued rollout of smart city projects bodes well for the growth of the regional market.
