In addition, rising investment by the various regulatory bodies such as city governments, central/federal governments, and governing organizations for infrastructure development plays a vital role in the development of the IoT in the smart cities market. Furthermore, growing urbanization, increasing proliferation of the connected and IoT in smart cities initiatives, and the rise in the number of development projects of smart cities globally are further creating lucrative opportunities for the industry demand over the forthcoming years.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has shown a substantial impact on every sector of the economy globally. The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the various intelligent projects of cities owing to the imposition of lockdowns in various regions, highly affected the unavailability of the workforce, logistics, production, and distribution chain, and increases the cost of hardware. The intelligent cities offer a variety of data that helps in contact tracking that is significantly helpful during emergency scenarios, maintaining cleanliness, detecting people without masks, or not retaining hygiene in communal spaces.

For instance, IoT technology assists people in finding unoccupied beds in the COVID-19 hospitals. Accordingly, during this pandemic regulatory bodies of various nations are highly emphasized in monitoring the living standards, health, and safety of their citizens. Hence, the gradual opening of lockdown and the emergence of innovative technologies are anticipated to present various lucrative opportunities in the approaching period.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The increasing number of initiatives of smart cities across the globe is one of the major driving factors for IoT in smart city market growth. The integration of IoT in smart city projects is propelling the need for smart security solutions, like the Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS), for protecting the boundaries of the region.
