The drivers behind the smart city market include some of the most challenging global developments, including continued growth in urbanization, the need to reduce city emissions and better manage resource consumption, and growing economic and environmental pressure on cities. These developments are entangled with rapid technology development in complex ways that present many opportunities for suppliers and cities.

“Cisco's and Siemens’ leader position is a reflection of how both companies have continued to evolve and adapt their city offerings,” says Eric Woods, research director at Navigant Research. “They have also shown an integrated perspective on urban innovation, strong sector-specific solutions, and a commitment to continued thought leadership and city engagement.”

Suppliers looking to succeed in this market can follow market contenders, which are putting more pressure on leaders with a growing focus on the development of Internet of Things (IoT) platforms for urban innovation.
