Smart parking is an intelligent parking system that assists drivers in safe parking. Available space in parking slots is indicated by signs or symbols with the help of embedded software and sensors. The vacant space is notified to the driver correctly due to the proper management of the vehicle. This technology uses different types of sensors as a hardware component in the parking slot to detect the presence or absence of the vehicles. Smart parking system provides real-time data information regarding the availability of nearby parking spaces and allows drivers to accommodate that slot without any interference from other vehicles. In addition, this technology is built to solve the permanent problem associated with parking that affects the ecosystem. The technology includes components that consist of low-cost sensors, real-time data interference, and smart mobile applications that allow users to monitor available & unavailable parking spots.

Smart Parking Market

A user is notified about an empty parking space through a smartphone application or a satellite navigation device with the help of IoT. Prior notification of free parking space is provided to a user through a smartphone when the vehicle enters particular shopping places and some streets in a city. This way IoT helps reduce the time required for finding the parking lot and searching for the parking space, which in turn drives the market growth. For instance, in May 2020, the University of California and NTT Corporation announced a connected campus pilot project that leverages IoT technology to transform the UC Berkeley Parking and Transportation Department by analyzing patterns, easing traffic congestion, and increase in pedestrian safety in the Bancroft Way area of campus. Such developments conducted across the globe support the concept of smart parking; thus, leading to the growth of the smart parking market during the forecast period.

Increased parking concerns across the globe

The smart parking market has witnessed a surge in growth due to the rise in parking issue faced by people all over the world. The need for efficient and convenient parking solutions has become a major concern for both individuals and businesses, leading to an increase in demand for smart parking technology. This industry has been gaining traction in recent years as it offers solutions that make it easier for people to find parking spaces, reduce traffic congestion, and enhance overall parking management. The growth of industry is expected to continue as the parking concern continues to rise in urban areas around the world.

Finding a vacant parking space during peak hours is difficult in areas such as hospitals, hotels & shopping centers, airports, universities, and exhibition & convention centers. The growth in population results in issues associated with residential and commercial parking. The problem linked to this is solved by using improved features such as notification of available free space by SMS & live updates of space reservations using the smart parking technology. This technology decreases the amount of time spent by the user for finding out the vacant parking slot and automates the process of searching for the optimal parking floor and spot. It thus creates a huge demand for the smart parking market.

Growth in demand for Internet of Things (IoT)-based technology.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices that are connected to the Internet to perform a specified task by exchanging data without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT-enabled sensors and devices are being used to gather real-time data and provide valuable insight into parking availability, usage patterns, and occupancy rates. This data is then utilized to optimize parking management, reduce congestion, and improve overall parking experiences for drivers. The adoption of IoT-based technologies is expected to continue driving the growth of the smart parking market as more cities and businesses look to modernize their parking systems.

Moreover, the time spent on searching for parking slots globally is more, and such related issues in many countries are solved by the University of Kansas by developing a project on smart parking solutions with the use of IoT technology. Moreover, implementing an IoT-based smart parking system helps manage better parking and reduces the  time for parking of the driver. For instance, in parking garages, drivers may even list the parking slots available at the entrance before entering the garage. This is done by receiving constant information updates from the sensors and providing this information to the driver. Such advancement in the IoT technology for smart parking solutions is expected to significantly drive the smart parking market.
