Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Increased Demand for Real-Time Transit Information and Regulations by Government will Drive Growth

Factors driving the market growth of the automatic passenger counting and information system market include the country-specific government regulations for the real-time reporting of commuters data from fleet operators to government agencies. These government agencies use these tools to determine the public transportation needs of passengers, plan regional development, analyze commuting trends, etc. Furthermore, the rising population requires developed transport services in all modes. Moreover, APCs are demonstrated to be essential for data tracking in high passenger volume transit systems and offer operators real-time transit information. By showing real-time information about arrival and departure schedules, passenger information systems improve the travelling experience for passengers. It is accessible on-site at a transportation hub as well as remotely via a web browser or mobile device.

Technological development in passenger information systems, the surge in the adoption of such solutions in the transportation sector, rising urbanization, increased deployment of automatic passenger counting systems to optimize the operational cost of transit agencies as APC provides complete information on ridership by every trip, by route, and by a stop for any given time period, is further predicted to cushion the market growth of the automatic passenger counting and information system industry.

Challenges

Increased Initial Investment may Stymie Market Expansion

The high initial cost of installing the APC and automatic passenger counting and information system may challenge market growth. Thus, for undeveloped and developing nations that make up the majority of market demand in the business, it makes technology adoption far more expensive. APC and automatic passenger counting and information system, however, prove to be cost-effective solution over the long term as it lowers operational costs, which is why their usage is anticipated to rise.

Also, lack of awareness about automatic sensor system, concern about accuracy and reliability of data, and poor transportation infrastructure may stymie the market expansion of the global automatic passenger counting and information system industry. Also, the integration of passenger information systems with transit vehicle systems may pose additional challenges to the development of the automatic passenger counting and information system market during the forecasted timeframe.

Opportunities

The modifications required in existing data systems for the deployment of automatic passenger counting systems will provide additional possibilities for the market development of the automatic passenger counting and information system industry during the analysis period. Moreover, the increased adoption of internet-based services for regular updates and increased deployment of developed information solutions in the transportation sector will lead to maximum efficacy in operational processes and enhances user experience, thus improving market opportunities for the industry players in the automatic passenger counting system industry.
