Industry Overview

The global electronic toll collection (ETC) market is anticipated to grow from USD 7.2 billion in 2021 and will reach USD 12.2 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period 2021-2027.

Electronic Toll Collection Market Highlights

Electronic toll collection is a high-end cashless toll collection technology that helps to alleviate traffic congestion at various toll collection sites due to the time-consuming procedure of collecting cash or plastic money and includes easy operating buttons and user-friendly design. These tolls do not necessitate vehicles stopping at toll booths for toll collection. These devices acquire information by scanning automobiles as they approach toll booths. They use cash tolls so that vehicles can pass by the booth without any transponder effects for a longer length of time, disrupting supply chains. Because it eliminates manual work, electronic toll collection reduces traffic problems. The overall expansion of the Electronic Toll Collection market is being fueled by the escalating adoption of electronic equipment, wireless connectivity, the increasing prevalence of internet connectivity, and other new technologies.

Transponders, cameras, RFID chips, controllers, and processors are among the various components and gadgets used in electronic tolling systems. Countries like China and the United States are severely impacted by COVID-19 and are major suppliers of components and raw materials. borders and severe lockdowns implemented as preventative measures, this will affect the supply chain of electronic components and gadgets directly. There will be expected delays in the supply of raw materials to manufacturers who meet the requirements of tolling system integrators, as well as delays in the delivery of products to integrators, due to stringent regulations and guidelines formulated in the transacting countries, which are expected to have long-term consequences in the transacting countries.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Type

Based on type, the global electronic toll collection market is bifurcated into transponder-/tag-based tolling systems and other tolling systems. Vehicles make extensive use of transponders, which are devices that interact with roadside equipment. To complete the transaction, this equipment is usually positioned on the front side of the vehicle. The device contains basic vehicle information like toll facility, identification number, and vehicle type; the vehicle identification number is linked to the consumer's bank account, from which the toll payment is deducted after the consumer's approval. The toll bill is subsequently emailed to the bank account's e-mail address.

Insight by Sub-System Type

Based on sub-system type, the global electronic toll collection market is segregated into Automatic Vehicle Classification (AVC), Violation Enforcement System (VES), Automatic Vehicle Identification System (AVIS), and others. The AVIS is anticipated to have a high CAGR during 2021-2027 owing to the increased adoption of intelligent transportation system technologies to detect and track stolen vehicles across the country. Toll collection and automatic vehicle identification are both aided by the use of electronic toll collecting systems and AVI technology. Using secure RFID tags or cards can eliminate the need to manually identify a vehicle, thus AVI technology streamlines access control and vehicle identification.

Insight by Payment Method

Based on the payment method, the electronic toll collection market is divided into prepaid, hybrid, and postpaid. The prepaid segment dominates the market owing to the rising demand for a fast, hassle-free, and cashless transaction processes which will provide direct payment of the toll fees from the prepaid or savings account. The prepaid tag allows for toll charges to be deducted automatically and vehicles to pass through without having the need to stop for transactions. Because the prepaid card system is linked to the Toll Management Systems, toll operators can discern vehicle classifications and collect appropriate toll payments from the prepaid card (TMS).

Insight by Technology

Based on technology, the global electronic toll collection market is segmented into Radio-frequency Identification (RFID), Dedicated Short-range communication (DSRC), Infrared, GNSS & GPS, and Video Analytics. RFID is anticipated to have a high CAGR during 2021-2027 in the electronic toll collection market as it involves low operational cost, enhances transparency, and offers a smooth exchange of payment information.  RFID technology uses radio-frequency electromagnetic waves to identify cars that are equipped with RFID tags. As a result, the market's expansion can be ascribed to rising demand for reducing traffic congestion near toll collection sites.

Insight by Application

Based on Application, the global electronic toll collection market is segmented into highways, bridges, and urban areas. Highways contribute the largest share in the market owing to technological development and strong government support will add ETC systems as it is a cost-effective solution and resolve toll collection issues on highways.

Industry Dynamics

Industry Trends

The growing number of expressway networks being built around the world, particularly in developing nations, is driving up demand for electronic toll collection systems. Also, the constant surge in the number of smart cities, decrease in traffic congestion, and reduction in pollution levels are the trends that may propel the growth of the electronic toll collection market.

Growth Drivers

Factors attributing to the growth of the electronic toll collection market include strong government support for accelerating electronic toll collection, increased convenience and flexibility of cashless payments, rising use of developed technologies in transportation infrastructure, rising number of public & private partnership agreements in transportation sectors, growing consumer use of modern digital technologies, and ETC acts as an effective solution for reducing traffic congestion, accidents, and pollution with improved traffic flow per lane. The electronic toll collection market is driven by the high acceptance of these systems due to the use of cutting-edge technology solutions such as GPS and GNSS toll collection, tracking solutions, and DSRC, as well as the use of video analytics to efficiently manage traffic in congested locations.

Challenges

The main disadvantage of this technology is the possibility of failure of the electronic toll system due to dirt, fog, rain, or moisture on the tag. Furthermore, the car tags are simple to duplicate. The complexity of the tag electrical system raises the build-up cost, stifling the electronic toll market's expansion. The stringent regulatory norms, lack of standardization in toll collection systems, interoperability, huge dependency on the government to approve electronic toll collection, and selection of toll technology will pose a challenge in the growth of the electronic toll collection market. Furthermore, massive initial costs incurred in installation and huge operating and maintenance costs may hamper the growth of the electronic toll collection market.

Opportunities

An increase in the use of blockchain technology in toll collection systems, a shift away from coin-based or manual tolling systems, and increased collaborations between the public and private sectors for transportation will provide lucrative opportunities for the electronic toll collection market during the forecast period 2021-2027.

Geographic Overview

APAC is anticipated to grow at a faster pace in the electronic toll collection market during the forecast period 2021-2027 owing to urbanization and industrialization, leading to increased use of vehicles that may lead to traffic congestion.
