Smart Cities Market Key Dynamics

  • The metaverse will play a significant role in the promotion of smart cities. The pandemic has shown that the most resilient cities enable their citizens to work, learn, and socialize remotely. Accordingly, in November 2021, Seoul announced plans to use a metaverse platform to provide this flexibility to its citizens. Similarly, Shanghai has also announced plans to encourage the use of the metaverse in public services, socializing, and offices as part of a five-year plan.
  • Furthermore, digital twins have become crucial for a smart city’s ability to support its citizens’ wellbeing, become more resilient, and adapt to climate change. Moreover, most cities are adopting multiple digital twins for different use cases, which are likely to play an increasingly important role in creating more resilient cities.
  • 5G will also play a significant role in smart cities. Smart cities rely on IoT networks that connect millions of everyday objects. These need strong, dense mobile connectivity something 5G can offer, in turn, driving the market growth.
