The fastest-growing device types in the market include lighting, smart speakers and connected major home appliances. The United States led all countries in 2018, representing about 35 percent of global market revenue. China was second, accounting for an 18 percent share.
Maggie Shillington | August 27, 2019
The number one challenge for smart cities is securing funding for projects. Implementing technology, coordinating disparate stakeholders, and determining return on investment are all major challenges of a smart city project, but nothing has the singularity of power to kill a smart city proposal like lack of funding. Although there is not a single solution to this problem, there is one common cause, the financial risk of projects. Because these projects are often focused on introducing new technologies and new applications to a city there is more uncertainty surrounding these projects than routinely completed projects, like repairing streets.
