LONDON, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Future of Vehicle Parking Management Systems in North America and Europe

Smart Parking, Aided by Real-time Parking Information and Technology to be Future of Parking

The aim of this research service is to provide a strategic overview of the parking industry and its stakeholders in Europe and North America. The study analyses the key operational strategies of parking operators, parking app providers, automakers and their implications on mobility integration. An attempt has been made to understand the major parking operators' and parking app providers' operational business models in Europe and North America. The study also entails the major parking technologies used in the area of ticketing, vehicle number plate recognition, and parking space availability. It draws a comparison of the conventional and modern parking industry, which is now considered as a significant entity of mobility in cities.

Executive Summary—Key Findings

1. Early stage growth opportunities will attract X new start-ups in the parking industry providing real-time parking applications with investments ranging from $X to $X million in the next X toX years.
2. More than X global automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are expected to be associated in strategic alliances by 2020 via partnerships with parking operators, app providers, standalone, via car sharing, or all of the above.
3. The parking industry is expected to be more connected and integrated with trends and technologies such as M2M (Machine-to-Machine), IoT (Internet of Things), LBS (Location-Based Services), cloud-based services, and mobile-based applications.
4. The automotive industry is expected to congregate and include real-time parking information assistance along with in-vehicle communications, telematics, navigation, and infotainment services.
5. Over the next decade, the majority of parking lot navigation and transactions will migrate toward the smartphone or autonomous in-car meter, slowly relieving the city streets of expensive and costly payment machines.
6. The future parking industry will have the proliferation of services hosted on cloud computing, mobile, personal, local, and social media. Smart parking initiatives will be enhanced with street-level-to-cloud network and data analysis applications.
7. The US parking industry grosses $X to $Xbillion annually and provides a minimum of three parking spaces to each car it has on road. Meanwhile the parking industry turnover of public parking spaces in Western Europe (EU-15) is estimated at over € billion a year, providing a minimum of one parking space for each car.
8. By 2020, it is expected that nearly Xmillion parking spaces will deliver real-time parking information with the help of sensors. Technology start-ups installed sensors for of San Francisco's meters (SFpark project) and parking spots on downtown Los Angeles' streets (LA Express Park).
9. The five largest private parking companies in Europe operate almost X million parking spaces with an annual revenue of € billion.
10. Germany, among the European markets, is expected to be the leader in parking management in terms of number of participants, flexibility of operations, and innovations in parking, followed by the United Kingdom and France by 2020.
11. European cities are on the verge of reducing parking spaces while freeing up city space to relieve congestion and apply effective motivation to use public transport. Cities such as Paris, London, Amsterdam, Zurich, and Stockholm are working on smart strategies to free up city space by installing bollards* and adopting smart parking initiatives.
12. Telecom and IT companies are entering the parking industry with smart sensor-based solutions, information management, and advanced analytics.
13. The top five states in the United States with parking facilities—California, New York, Texas, Florida, and Illinois—generate more thanX% of the revenue, and constitute X% of the parking facilities in the United States.
14. European cities are leading the world in using parking as a tool to revitalise their cities, while the US parking industry has seen a lower level of innovation to catch up to Europe's use of technology.
