Overview

Towards the end of the last decade, our planet achieved a remarkable feat: for the first time in human history, 50% of the world’s population was living in urban areas. The UN predicts that by 2030, 60% of the world’s population will live in cities; a study of Frost & Sullivan summarized the urbanization trend to be growing faster than the UN’s prediction, and forecast the urban population to reach 4.6 billion globally around 2025 – about 60% of the total world population. No matter what the exact figure will be, it’s clear that the urban population will rise very quickly. This extraordinary growth will lead to the merger of core city centers or downtowns with suburbs and daughter cities, resulting in the expansion of city limits.

The massive rise in urbanization will lead to the redefinition of our cities and, in turn, our society, providing unique opportunities for all types of businesses, including entrepreneurs and pioneers. This rapid growth of cities will also introduce new challenges that require adequate actions in response to population density, pollution, congestions, security, and rising costs.

A number of governmental, public, and private initiatives were launched recently to help large cities to become more sustainable, competitive, and livable today and in the future; in other words, to become SMART Cities. SMART Cities mean a significant shift towards intelligent products (SMART products) and services (SMART services), with increasingly important integration with Internet technologies allowing products to react and communicate to the changing environment around them.
