Europe is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share

  • The Northwest European region faces a great challenge, due to a shift toward a low carbon footprint economy. Municipalities play a pivotal role, as they account for 70% of the NWE energy consumption and CO2 emission. Especially, standard public street lighting accounts for approximately 30% of municipalities‘ total electricity consumption.
  • Smart space solution aims to promote the usage of smart lighting in small-/mid-size municipalities, along with the sensors attached to light poles. With this arrangement, energy efficiency can be enhanced, CO2 emissions can be reduced, and street lighting can be adjusted as per requirements. This could augment the growth of the smart space market across the region.
  • As European cities are expected to become “SMART” in the future, the market studied is expected to grow in the forecast period. For instance, the European Smart Space project aims at increasing the innovation capabilities of industrial SMEs, by exploiting the potential of intelligent and digital technologies.
