It is predicted that by 2050 about 64% of the developing world and 86% of the developed world will live in urban areas. The global smart cities market is expected to reach USD 297.7 billion by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 20% from 2019. Furthermore, nearly all global population growth through 2030 will be absorbed by cities -- about 1.1 billion new urbanites over the next 10 years.*
New insights and solutions are urgently needed in order to manage the scarce resources that will be impacted by this trend, as well as operate new and regenerated urban spaces. New generations of sensor networks, Big Data analytics, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications are being deployed in public and privately managed physical spaces to meet these requirements, though many challenges remain. As they emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, municipal governments around the world are looking to the future and formulating their Smart City strategies. Now is the time to engage and learn from industry peers at the forefront of this key trend.
