Smart City Tracker 3Q20

The uptake of smart city concepts is continuing to take root across all global regions. While it is likely that the COVID-19 pandemic will cause a short-term slowdown in project development, the virus has reinvigorated the focus on city function in the minds of both the public and municipal staff. Combined with an expected wave of stimulus funding and private investment in public infrastructure over the coming five years, smart city develops are expected to accelerate globally. This would reverse a trend since 2018 of slowing project development as geopolitical changes had shifted focus away from smart city concepts in North America and Europe.

This Guidehouse Insights database now tracks 565 smart city projects in 325 different cities globally. This version of the database includes 36 projects not previously included with a focus on projects in the developing regions of Latin America and Middle East & Africa.
