According to the new market research report "Automated Passenger Counting and Information System Market: APC by Technology (Infrared, Stereoscopic Vision, Time-of-Flight), Application (Buses, Trains, Ferryboats), PIS by Systems, Application, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2022", the automated passenger counting system market is expected to reach USD 298.0 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 18.6% between 2017 and 2022, the passenger information system market is expected to reach USD 11.34 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 19.9% during forecast period.
The factors driving the growth of the market include the increasing demand for real-time transit information, increased adoption of advanced solutions in the transport sector, advantages offered by APC to transit operators in optimizing operational cost, and government regulations such as the requirement of ridership data from transit operators on a regular basis.
“Stereoscopic vision technology expected to witness the highest growth for the automated passenger counting system market during the forecast period."
The stereoscopic vision technology-based passenger counting system has a high accuracy of more than 95%. These systems are capable of counting and monitoring entrance and exit traffic separately while differentiating between adults, children, and luggage. Moreover, they are capable of counting multiple passengers entering at a time. This technology can cover the widest entrance area for passenger counting, and the accuracy is unaffected by tough environmental conditions such as varying lighting, temperature conditions, and so on.
“Buses segment of the application expected to hold a major share of the automated passenger counting system market during the forecast period.”
Bus transit operators are interested in determining the passenger traveling pattern, such as when, how, and how often the passenger travels, to schedule the bus time and route. The government regulations to provide ridership data, increasing adoption of APC in the developing countries, and integration of APC with other technologies are some of the drivers for the growth of passenger counting systems in buses.
“Railways application expected to hold a major share of the passenger information system market during the forecast period.”
In the railways application, passenger information systems installed in ticket halls, on platforms, in trains, and train stations are included. The passenger information systems provide real-time information related to trains’ timetables, train delays, current location, emergency announcements, advertisements, and infotainment services. The delivery of real-time passenger information to targeted passengers is challenging, and passenger information systems help transit operators to deliver information and offer a better traveling experience to riders.
“APAC is expected to dominate the automated passenger counting and information system market between 2017 and 2022”
The APAC region comprises highly populated and rapidly developing countries such as China, India, and so on. These countries are investing huge amounts of money for developing the transportation sector to match the economic and cultural standards of developed countries, which would drive the automated passenger counting and information system market in the region. The increasing adoption of automated passenger counting and information systems in transit vehicles, including trains, metros, and buses, in the countries such as India, Australia, China, and others spurs the growth of the automated passenger counting and information system market.
