The Smart Cities Sector – Key Trends in Singapore

Why Buy This Report?

This report is designed to provide an overview of the smart cities sector in Singapore.  The country is a tiny island of 5.7 million people, and is an often-cited example of a smart city in Asia. The country is investing heavily in the future, particularly in smart technologies. The report explores various public and private initiatives in Singapore to boost the smart city sector, for example:

  • In January 2016, the city-state announced a five-year plan worth SGD 19 billion that will fund research and development (R&D) activities that will update or modify results of previous research to come up with more viable solutions to the challenges faced by the city-state in terms of infrastructure. A portion of this fund will be allotted in plans and creation of a smart Singapore.

  • For example, under the government’s initiative, Singapore’s Jurong Lake district has become a testbed for innovations. Hundreds of data collection sensors dot the area. The information gathered by these sensors are being used to manage several aspects of life, from the driverless electric buggies that ferry people around, to the comfort levels of bus rides.     

  • Yet another interesting initiative is the Future Cities Laboratory, where scientists have over been collating all the possible information on the city over the past few years, and making it accessible to other researchers and to the public. The laboratory is currently focusing on creating a “responsive Singapore” through Information Architecture using the collected data.

Report Structure

The report starts with a country profile, which is then followed by a snapshot of the Smart Cities sector. Rather than attempting to cover the entire Smart Cities sector, the report focuses on four key sectors, namely Smart Building, Smart Water, Smart Transport and Smart Energy. Starting with the Smart Building Subsector, we identify smart solutions and initiatives that have been deployed in the country. Subsequent chapters adopt the same approach.

The report is part of a series of market studies on the smart cities sector for the South East Asian markets. It is designed to provide comprehensive and well-structured information to help a company understand the opportunities in the market, and offers a wide range of data and information collected from various sources that were built together in order to give a deeper insight into the industry.
