The global tunnel automation market generated $3.5 billion revenue in 2020, and it is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period (2021–2030). The factors responsible for the growth of the market include strict government regulations; surge in demand for enhanced road safety and security solutions due to the rise in number of road accidents; increase in integration of tunnel automation systems with advanced technologies like cloud storage and internet of things (IoT); combination of analytics in tunnel management; and rise in number of tunnel construction projects around the globe.
With the imposition of multiple lockdowns due to COVID-19 has a negative impact on the tunnel automation market worldwide. The business lockdowns, halted construction and transportation activities, along with migrations of workers to their home states, and supply chain disruption in several countries have affected the market growth.
The railway tunnels category is predicted to hold larger revenue share in the tunnel automation market in coming years, based on tunnel type. The primary element driving the market in this category is the modernization of railway transportation system. In addition, increasing construction of railway and subway tunnels has boosted the need for railway tunnel automation solutions.
On the basis of component, the HVAC category held the largest share in 2020 and it is expected to showcase the highest growth rate during the forecast period, in the tunnel automation market. Since ventilation inside tunnels is extremely important and its manual operation can be costly, HVAC automated systems can provide much easier solutions, and hence are gaining popularity around the globe. Further, compulsory government regulations to install air conditioning and ventilation systems in tunnels, as these tunnels have limited access to natural ventilation. Therefore, HVAC components are widely used for ventilation and heat exchanging processes in the tunnels.
Europe held the largest share in the tunnel automation market in 2020, and it is expected to lead the market during forecast period as well. This is attributed to the well-established transportation industry, increase in demand for public transportation systems, existence of several mountain ranges, and rise in awareness for the improvement of rail and road safety among consumers, in the region.
Road safety is a major issue across the globe. Therefore, consumers all around the world are becoming more concerned about road safety, prompting governments to invest in innovative technologies such as tunnel automation to improve security, surveillance, lighting, ventilation, air conditioning, and other facilities. This is expected to drive the market for tunnel automation solutions.
Tunnel automation systems are being integrated with advanced technologies, such as internet of things (IoT), cloud computing, and data analytics, offering customers a huge edge over manual management methods. Data may be shared and transferred between communication systems and other devices, such as thermostats, sensors, and lighting systems, with the help of these technologies. The information collected from these units is used to improve the tunnels’ efficiency by the analysis of the data to control the automation systems.
