Looking forward, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around X% during 2023-2028, reaching a value of US$ XX Billion by 2028. Electronic toll collection (ETC) is a system used for collecting toll charges without human intervention. It utilizes various technologies, such as automation, video analytics, dedicated short-range communication (DSRC), global positioning system (GPS), global navigation satellite system (GNSS), and radio frequency identification (RFID) to track vehicles and collect tolls. ETC is widely used to perform electronic monetary transactions between vehicles and the toll collection agency on highways, bridges, roads, and urban areas. It reduces operating costs, lowers the risk of revenue leakage, saves time, and improves the efficiency and speed of traffic flow.

The rising investment in infrastructural development activities to promote travel and tourism is one of the primary factors driving the market growth in the GCC region. In line with this, the implementation of various government initiatives on developing smart cities and constructing new  ports, highways, and expressways is facilitating the market growth. Additionally, the boosting sales of automobiles have led to an increase in traffic congestion which, in turn, is catalyzing the demand for ETC for seamless traffic operation, smooth freight transportation, and enhanced connectivity. Furthermore, widespread product utilization to identify traffic violations, enable transparent toll collection, and reduce the incidences of unpaid tolls is providing a considerable boost to the market growth. Apart from this, the rapid proliferation of smartphones that provides a user-friendly interface, enabling drivers to pay tolls through online applications, record incurred tolls, and check road prices, are positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the integration of recent technologies, such as thermal cameras, optical character recognition (OCR), and artificial intelligence (AI)-based software to provide automated car recognition, pay-by-plate solution, and charge traveling vehicles is providing an impetus to the market growth. Other factors, including rising product adoption by toll providers to apply accurate pricing strategy decisions and increasing consumer awareness regarding various product benefits, such as centralized user accounts and flexible payment solutions, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
