Indian ITS market is growing and the increased number of ITS exhibitors, both national and international, at TrafficInfraTech Expo has been reflecting the country’s focus on road safety and traffic management. Globally too, ITS market witnessed substantial growth over the last five years. It is further expected to grow at a CAGR of over 11% during the coming years. In India, the growth is influenced by the Government’s focus on technology-backed infrastructure, development of mass transport systems, integrated transit systems in Smart Cities, fast highways & industrial corridors, intercity fast trains and advanced traffic management systems for individual cities.
