The toll collection systems projects constitute a public-private partnership model where government agencies or state bodies usually decide the toll pricing. Also, the objective of toll collection has a profound influence over the vehicle classification and dynamic pricing for different categories of frequent travelers. However, state and central government agencies' joint efforts for initiating a streamlined transit transaction process across toll gateways, plazas, parking systems, and traffic management have gained traction in the past few years. Moreover, through collaborative efforts among different state bodies to participate in joint toll collection systems that are accepted by larger government agencies and offering simplified toll collection for different users will going to drive the market growth. This electronic toll collection system operates on a pre-paid account-based system that various state agencies adopt for a seamless array of fright fees, tolls, and fines across the globe. For instance, North America-based E-ZPass is an interagency group-based electronic toll collection system that is interoperable across 17 different states in the US. Moreover, the company boasts of being the largest successful interoperable toll collection system in the world, with more than 20 million active accounts that utilize 34 million toll-based tags that amount to US$ 9 billion in revenue generation for partnered state agencies.
Continuous technological advancements and automation are allowing manufacturing companies to achieve greater productivity and profitability. Conduent, Inc.; Kapsch; Thales Group; Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machinery Systems, Ltd.; and Neology are among the key companies in the electronic toll collection system market. The major stakeholders in the electronic toll collection system market include hardware & component providers, electronic toll collection system manufacturers, system/technology integrators, government agencies & regulatory bodies, and end users. Due to the rise in the number of vehicles and issues like traffic congestion, the demand for electronic toll collection systems is also rising.
The electronic toll collection system systems operate an account-based system that automatically identifies, classifies, and subsequently charges the vehicle owner as per the agency regulations without stopping at the toll plazas. As per the data published by Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MILT), the effective adoption of ETC systems eliminated the traffic congestion at their expressway by almost one-third and lowered their carbon dioxide emissions down to 0.21 million tons per year. The effective deployment of ETC systems has versatile benefits such as reducing congestion and vehicular pollution, seamless transit transactions, and intelligent transportation services at expressways. Thus, the long-term benefits of adopting ETC systems are expected to drive the demand for these systems across various emerging economies and provide profitable business opportunities for the market players during the forecast period.
