The rise of smart cities is one of the main factors influencing demand for traffic management systems. Transportation officials can respond to emergencies more quickly due to increased traffic efficiency. In addition, increasing the usage of public transit can help create smart cities by reducing airborne pollutants and carbon dioxide emissions. Additionally, these traffic control solutions offer real-time data for analysis and prompt emergency response. These advantages provided by ITMS would further support the unmanned traffic management market expansion throughout the course of the forecast period.

Despite the pandemic epidemic, the market is anticipated to experience tremendous growth during the remainder of 2022. Even if the demand is unlikely to completely decline, project delays and changes in certain product areas are anticipated to be unavoidable. Over the projection period, the market expands due to increased traffic effectiveness. Therefore, it is projected that the post-pandemic period will present profitable growth possibilities for the market's established players in ITMS

Also, the unmanned traffic management manufacturing factories were forced to cease operations due partially or entirely to the statewide lockdown. The COVID-19 pandemic's negative effects have caused delays in global operations and initiatives aimed at advancing unmanned traffic control.

To lessen traffic congestion, nations all around the world are working to change their infrastructure for traffic management. Also, the use of telematics services in vehicles has a big impact on safety and security. These services increase the safety of drivers, lower fuel usage, enhance driving behavior, and facilitate cost savings. The use of telematics tracking systems in automobiles allows for remote access to and activation of vehicles via radio frequency identification (RFID). The market for Traffic Management systems is predicted to increase as a result of these factors.

The development of smart cities, the introduction of adaptive Traffic Management controls, and the expansion of adaptive Traffic Management analytics are significant drivers of the deployment of traffic management systems. Mobility as a Service (MaaS) demand has also increased due to increasing traffic congestion and vehicular pollution, which is expected to fuel unmanned traffic management market expansion during the forecast period.

Governments and companies across the world are showing signs of an upbeat shift to smart transportation, which will enhance transportation networks for smart cities.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers 
Over the past few years, interest in drones and other unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has grown across a range of businesses. Commercial applications and operating techniques are being improved by drone technologies' self-sufficiency. The media, surveying, entertainment, advertising, remote sensing, precision agriculture, cleaning up contaminated areas, real estate, building, environment monitoring, forest monitoring, and emergency management & disaster response applications are just a few of the industries that are interested in using drones.

Also, the current ATM systems that are employed to regulate the quantity of conventional airplanes rely on pricey human monitoring. The unmanned air vehicle cannot be controlled by these systems. As a result, the demand for UTM is increasing as drone deployment increases. Additionally, it is anticipated that the growing need for speedy, lightweight deliveries and the usage of drones in logistics.

Software segment is anticipated to grow significantly over the forecast period

The segment growth is driven by increasing investments in developing advanced software solutions for air traffic planning. AirMap Inc. created programming arrangements that assist military powers with overseeing UAV traffic over touchy areas and complete strategic missions securely. Deployed soldiers can use the software's visual intelligence and real-time insights to make decisions out in the field.

Furthermore, Collins Aerospace, ANRA Technologies, and OneSky developed software platforms to schedule and deconflict drone operations. Thus, increasing demand for unmanned aerial vehicles and growing expenditure on the development of advanced UTM software are projected to show remarkable growth during the forecast period.
