According to the report - 2018 Revision of World Urbanization Prospects,   55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 68% by 2050.

The market for smart city product and services will touch $2.57 trillion by 2025.

The top largest cities in the world as per the population are Tokyo (37 million), Delhi (29 million), Shanghai (26 million), Mexico City (22 million) and Sao Paulo (22 million). Due to the population growth, many cities are in the race to join the largest city club across the world.  It is expected that by 2025, China will have 221 cities with over 1 million population.

 The implementation of ICT will make life simple and informative. Smart sensors, networks, and engagement will drive urban informatics. In addition to this, there will be a high usage of mobile apps and web-applications to collect and interpret data.
