The Global Automatic Passenger Counting And Information System Market size is predicted to reach USD 20.7 billion by 2030 from USD 6.5 billion in 2023, registering a CAGR of 10% during the forecast period. Automatic passenger counting systems (APCS) is hardware and mobile-based application system that record the number of passengers who board and depart at each stop. This system has replaced the schedule checkers that were previously used to manually collect ridership information. An automatic passenger counting and information system, on the other hand, refers to an electronic information system that offers real-time passenger information. The technical innovations in the transit system provide useful insights into statistics such as peak and off-peak hours, route analytics, real-time passenger count, and the number of passengers per stop. It also allows passengers to track the vehicle in real time and plan their routes accordingly. Buses, light rails, trains, subways, and ferry boats all have automatic passenger counting and information systems.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the automatic passenger counting and information system market owing to the increased government regulations in several countries which include lockdown restrictions, a temporary halt in manufacturing facilities, partial operations with less labour force, and travel restrictions. These factors have resulted in disruption of the supply chain, reduced the market demand for automatic passenger counting sensor systems to manage real-time passengers, and affected the manufacturing capacities of the businesses.
Insight by Type
Automatic passenger counting and information system dominate the market as it provide information to the bus transit operators about the passenger travelling patterns and thus helps in scheduling the time and routes of their vehicles. The rising competition among bus operators will lead to advancement in their service offerings and improve their customer base which lead to increased deployment of automatic passenger counting and information system in buses. Thus, owing to real-time information provided to bus operators, there will be proper management of transport vehicles during COVID-19 crisis.
Insight by Application
The buses segment contributes the largest market share in the automatic passenger counting system market as they are the primary mode of transportation globally along with the rising number of buses in developing countries and increased adoption of advanced technologies will fuel the segment growth.
Insight by Technology
The stereoscopic vision category is anticipated to have a high CAGR in the automatic passenger counting system market as it provides precise information about high-volume traffic data and detects the direction of passenger movement. Bus drivers can now accurately count the number of passengers at each stop or during each trip owing to stereoscopic vision technology. As computerized passenger counting systems make it possible to compare the number of passengers to the tickets issued, it helps bus operators generate more income.
Insight by Type
Display systems dominate the automatic passenger counting and information system market as it offers digital information systems to display real-time information for passengers. Station ticket halls, platforms, entrances, interchange corridors at interchange stations, and other areas are equipped with display systems to provide passengers with pertinent information on metro/train timings and destinations. The display system enables the customer to access real-time information both in the station and while travelling via disruptive technologies, including IoT, big data, cloud, AI, ML, and automation.
Insight by Application
Railway’s category contributes the largest share in the automatic passenger counting and information system market owing to the mounting placement of metro rail proposals, rapid urbanization, expansion and modernization of rail networks in emerging economies will proliferate the growth of the segment. Automatic Passenger Counting and information system provide information regarding train departure, arrival, platforms, delays, timings, cancellations, etc. so as offer an enhanced experience to passengers.

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.
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.
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.
North America dominates the automatic passenger counting and information system market as they are early adopters of technology and rising demand from the automotive and transportation industry. Furthermore, North America is the largest contributor of the automatic passenger counting and information system market owing to upgradation of the existing transit structures and installing new systems for the upcoming transit infrastructure projects.
The industry players in the automatic counting and passenger information systems have recently made a number of significant advancements, including partnerships, contracts, agreements, joint ventures, and collaborations.
