Unlike any other manufacturing industry that has witnessed phenomenal value migration from manufacturing to the systems integrators, the ITS industry is still fragmented, and each module maker plays a key role in the market. Technology enablers and system integrators equally share the responsibility for advancing the industry's future and are hence, accorded equal importance. Apparently, in the ITS industry, strategies when combined across board, comprise the industry size.

Rising impetus for enhancing road safety and escalating socio-environmental and economic implications of traffic congestions worldwide are the key rationale for investments in intelligent transportation systems. Banking on the ever-growing fundamental vitality of the said implications, these are likely to remain strong growth propellants for the sector in the forthcoming years.

With a broad market vertical encompassing numerous technology and application developing companies innovating a diverse range of complementary products and integration platforms, the industry is likely to witness a wealth of strategic technological and product development alliances attempting to buck up the mushrooming popularity of intelligent transportation worldwide. Given the overwhelmingly shrunk development cycles, enormous costs of research and design, and evolving multiplicity of complementary technologies, alliances are emerging as the only way to cash in on the fast rising opportunity, without entailing big-ticket investments, both in terms of time and money.
