The key manufacturers are investing in this market to achieve proceeding requirements of high bandwidth & high-density applications and lower power consumption for managing demand for direct attach copper (DAC) cables and active optical cables (AOCs).
Based on type, electronic toll collection market is segmented into All Electronic Tolling (AET), Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and others. Based on product type, market is segmented into Automated Vehicle Classification (AVC), violation enforcement system, back-office & integration, and Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI).AVI segment dominates the market as it helps determine the identity of the owner using plate recognition technologies and radio-frequency identification. Based on technology, the market is segmented into Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Video analytics, Global Positioning System (GPS) and others. Video analytics is estimated to witness a higher growth rate owing to the rise in violation of tolls as it helps to record the violation taking place with cameras during the forecast period. Based on means of collection, the market is segmented into postpaid and prepaid. In addition, based on application, the market is segmented into urban, highways and others.
The electronic toll collection market is driven by growth in the development of smart cities across the world, followed by the effective solution to overcome traffic crowding with improved traffic flow per lane, reduced environmental pollution using ETC systems, rise in allocation of funds for the deployment of its by government and improvement inconvenience due to cashless travel facilities. However, high operating costs and slow growth in infrastructure sector in underdeveloped countries may impact the market. Moreover, the increase in the number of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) agreements in the transportation sector, growth in investment opportunities in economically & technologically developing countries and rise in the transition to All-Electronic Tolling (AET) systems are key opportunities for the market. Furthermore, rise in adoption of wireless communication in vehicles and growth in the development of smart city technology is a major trend for the market.
Based on geography, the North-American the region holds a major share in electronic toll collection market owing to increase in traffic & developed road infrastructures in the region. The Asian-Pacific and European regions are estimated to witness higher growth rate due to increase in traffic congestions and the rise in demand for electronic toll collection systems from emerging economies such as Singapore, China, India, Malaysia, South Korea, and the Philippines over the forecast period.
