Transport infrastructure is essential for economic and social development, as it enables connections between people, goods, communities and territories.

We are committed to taking part in the shift towards a new mobility model that focuses on the people's needs and is able to generate a positive social, environmental and economic impact. Our aim is to meet people's basic need to move around, by offering the opportunity to do so in a more sustainable, safe, integrated and smart way.

Our role in the evolution of mobility

Atlantia has developed its own long-term vision regarding the evolution of mobility, on two complementary fronts:

  • definition of our role in the future mobility ecosystem, as its supply and demand approach will be called into question in the coming years under the influence of global mega-trends;
  • identification of the market segments that have the greatest potential and that will be capable of generating new opportunities of interest to Atlantia, in view of the priorities set and the added value they are expected to provide.

Atlantia believes that in the coming years, the mobility sphere will be at the centre of a growing and radical transformation brought about by the impact of global mega-trends and expanding technological development.

The global mega-trends and their impacts on mobility

MEGA-TREND

MAIN EXPECTED IMPACTS ON MOBILITY

Rapid urbanisation

  • increasing levels of congestion on urban road networks
  • emergence of new, unconventional transport models that will complement current ones
  • increase in new, unsystematic long-distance journeys

Technological Disruption

  • emergence of new mobility services enabled by digital platforms
  • intelligent data processing as the main critical success factor
  • increasingly connected, autonomous and electrically powered vehicles

Combating climate change

  • transition to sustainable transport models, also supported by public incentive policies
  • intelligent infrastructure for monitoring emissions and achieving greater operational efficiency
  • growing penetration of electric vehicles and shared mobility models

Changing economic equilibria

  • trade growth in new and established corridors
  • boosting of new infrastructure investment and cross-border service provision
  • vertical integration of logistics operators

Socio-demographic changes

  • changing needs and consumption habits driving the emergence of diversified and personalised services
  • need to adapt existing infrastructure capacity in line with population growth and mobility flows
  • repositioning of industrial players (e.g., car manufacturers) as providers of a wide range of mobility services
We believe that we can perform the role of an integrated pivotal player in the mobility ecosystem, and efficiently and sustainably manage and develop complex physical and digital infrastructure networks within the ecosystem, by leveraging technological innovation to offer new value-added services

The investment approach

We have identified a number of specific market segments in the mobility sector that we believe have the greatest potential to generate the most interesting opportunities, taking into account two factors:

  • the presence of the characteristics that Atlantia deems to be priority (e.g., attractiveness, market competitiveness, positioning with regard to macro-trends, generation of positive environmental, economic and social impacts)
  • the added value that Atlantia believes we can bring and create (e.g., adjacency to current businesses, synergies and development opportunities across our businesses)

Regarding the areas of opportunity identified, which are characterised by different levels of maturity, Atlantia has defined a diversified investment approach structured around three objectives with different levels of priority (see chart below):

  1. growth and consolidation in the mature sectors where Atlantia is already positioned via our subsidiaries, and in which we intend to continue to invest, generate and enable new value, including  leveraging innovation and technology;
  2. the development of new lines of business in adjacent sectors that are synergistic with our existing operations, and have already begun to establish themselves and the related markets, thereby creating further growth potential;
  3. positioning and skills creation in emerging and innovative mobility areas, where the market is still taking shape but has high potential for future growth.
