Global Smart City Projects by World Region, Market Segment, Technology, and Application

As the immediate economic shocks of the COVID-19 pandemic begin to wane, many nations are preparing to make a considerable amount of fiscal stimulus available. Much of it has been earmarked with explicit focus on sustainability and livability projects, including transportation, connectivity, and environmental quality. This increase in funding presents an opportunity to further develop smart cities and comes at a time when the required technology is as simple to deploy as it ever has been.

This Guidehouse Insights report focuses on historical and anticipated trends for smart city projects generally within each of the five world regions tracked: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Drawing on data from Guidehouse Insights’ Smart Cities Tracker, this dashboard considers 798 tracked smart city projects from 2012 to 2021.
