Japan, with a population density that ranks nearly 11th in the world and accounts for 1.6 percent of the global total, has a long-standing interest in developing intelligent transportation systems (ITS) to address traffic problems and other transportation issues. However, Japanese officials have recently begun to take a broader look at ITS. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are a critical component in the development of a Japanese advanced information and telecommunications society.
In Japan, technology such as Vehicle Information and Communication Systems (VICS) is being developed to make the ITS concept a success. Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) technology will be deployed immediately.
Through the efforts of MPT, NPA, and MOC, the Vehicle Information and Communications System (VICS) was introduced in Japan before any other country. VICS uses FM multiplex broadcasting, radiowaves, and optical beacons to provide drivers with real-time traffic information such as traffic jams. VICS offers the extra advantage of enabling the usage of variable driving patterns, depending on constantly changing traffic conditions, in contrast to standard car navigation systems, which are restricted to guiding routes to destinations exclusively. Also, toll roads cover approximately 8,530 kilometers in Japan. Collaborative research between the public and private sectors is currently underway to develop an automatic toll collection system that will be used on all toll roads in Japan.
This research report categorizes Japan's Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Market based on various segments and regions, forecasts revenue growth, and analyzes trends in each submarket. The report analyses the key growth drivers, opportunities, and challenges influencing the Japan Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Market. Recent market developments and competitive strategies such as market expansion, product launch, and development, partnership, merger, and acquisition have all been included to depict the market's competitive landscape. The report strategically identifies and profiles the key market players and analyses their core competencies in each sub-segments of the Japan Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Market.
Several of the aspects that are expected to boost the expansion of the Japanese ITS market are the increasing number of automobiles on the road, failing infrastructure, and a lack of traffic data management. Technology will certainly play a significant role in determining the future of the intelligent transportation system industry from the application of smart technologies and various initiatives taken by both public and commercial entities.
Japan furthermore strives to improve safety, comfort, and the environment by employing the most appropriate traffic management techniques, such as signal controls, traffic information to in-vehicle units, priority to public transit vehicles, dynamic route guidance systems, commercial vehicle monitoring, better detour information, and signal control to reduce traffic pollution.
Whereas, Japan is having difficulty implementing this cutting-edge, real-time traffic management technology because it frequently necessitates the restructuring of existing infrastructure. Transportation authorities may need to improve existing infrastructure to facilitate efficient deployment and administration of sophisticated technology, going to slow Japan's ITS market growth in the region.
COVID 19 Impacts
The COVID-19 pandemic has hampered 2020 implementation projects as well as new ITS demand and installations. Although, the ITS industry asserted a substantial rise in mid-2021 as a result of increased government investment in infrastructure development activities to help the pandemic-affected economic growth.
