Technologies will improve the infrastructure and the lives of the inhabitants. The global market for intelligent cities is estimated to grow from $308 billion in 2018 to $717.2 billion in 2023. That makes more than 18 percent growth annually. The central points are communication, transport and energy.
The number of megacities is increasing, traffic and transport must become more efficient while minimizing environmental pollution. Electric vehicles or autonomous buses, at some point even flying vehicles will dominate the cityscape. Also we could live more rural and work online again. Renewable energy production will increase. All this requires raw materials such as copper for electric vehicles and the expansion of infrastructure and platinum for fuel cell vehicles.
Companies that own these commodities should therefore benefit from the trend. Like Copper Mountain Mining or Sibanye-Stillwater. Copper Mountain Mining - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7BCML1dKP0=123s - owns 75 percent of the Copper Mountain Mine in British Columbia. It produced 22.1 million pounds of copper equivalent in the second quarter of 2019. The company owns 100 percent of the ready-to-develop Eva Copper project in Queensland, Australia.
Sibanye-Stillwater - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHb5SLrbq8s=1s - is one of the big companies and produces not only gold (Witwatersrand basin), but also platinum and palladium in South Africa and North America.
Among the ten most intelligent cities in the world, San Francisco is at the top, followed by London, Paris, Stockholm and Tokyo. In Germany, Berlin is at the top, followed by Bonn, Darmstadt and Dortmund. The Smart City Index shows how far the major German cities have come in terms of digitization. Seoul 2014 was the first Smart City to receive an award.
