Parking management comprises several programs and policies which result in effective utilization of parking services. The ever increasing global number of vehicles is worsening the issue of already acute shortage of parking space, especially in metropolitan areas. This is due to growing urban revitalization, explosive semi-urban development and an upward trend of mobility in our society. Drivers failing to find adequate parking space is at the base of traffic congestion problems. These problems pave the path for efficient and smart parking management systems that would provide advanced levels of automation and convenience to drivers, besides simplifying administrative functions and business operations of parking space owners.
The major driving factors enhancing the demand for developing parking management resources across large cities are technological advancement and the need for smooth flow of traffic. Parking systems are responsible for substantially bringing down connectivity costs and hardware costs, alongside being a source of revenue for owners of parking sites. Additionally, rising investments in projects of smart cities may also drive the market of parking management.
On the contrary, system integration is a restraining factor for this market. Sensitivity of cost to the operators of parking sites on behalf of the parking site owners may also be a key factor in preventing the growth of the parking management market. Nevertheless, the parking management market has been undergoing a shift in paradigm in the recent past, and now looks to optimize parking prices as well as supply. Furthermore, perennially growing traffic congestion and increasing adoption of smart parking infrastructures provide huge opportunity and immense potential for key players of the market in smart cities worldwide and even in the regional economies.
