Market description and investments
Brazil has a population of 190 million people, with an overwhelming concentration of this population in a few major cities. The city of Sao Paulo alone has more than 6 million cars and this number increases by around 800 daily.
Most of these cities do not have infrastructure that was projected for the current number of cars leading to extremely heavy traffic congestion. To avoid stopping traffic and accidents, parking has become a critical issue on the Brazilian agenda.
At the same time the strong gowth of the Brazil’s economy has led to an increase in the size and number of buildings requiring parking facilities for which street parking is no longer an option. These include: shopping malls and shopping centers, residential condominiums, hospitals and universities, stadiums and sports venues, hotels and public venues.
As host of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games, Brazil has airports and stadiums to modernize and safety requirements to meet. Modern parking facilities are an integral part of the solution to ensure that the games transpire as smoothly as possible.
With labor costs on the rise, there is a growing tendency to automate in the parking industry. Imported products are gradually becoming more competitive as Brazil’s import tariffs are slowly reduced.
For companies providing solutions for on-street and off-street parking, now is a very favorable time to enter the Brazilian market and help the local authorities to solve their parking and congestion problems. Expo Parking is the opportunity to meet the decision-makers and influencers from municipalities, stadiums, condominiums, shopping malls and other public venues.
