Electronic Toll Collection Market: Overview
A toll road, also known as a tollway or turnpike, is a private or public roadway for which a fee is accessed for passage. Frequently, these toll booths cause traffic delays during rush hours for the toll collection process. This is mainly due to manual operations, which are not only more prone to errors, they are also considerably slower than automated methods. This factor has given birth to electronic toll collection system, which swiftly eliminates the manual operations by toll payers and receivers. As several developed and developing economies across the world invest and adopt new technology, the reflection is quite apparent on the adoption of these electronic toll collection systems. Consequently, the global market for electronic toll collection is projected for a double digit growth rate during the forecast period of 2016 to 2024.
