Train Control Management System Market to Reach $4.9 billion by 2023

  • Published: October 2018

Train control management system market is projected to reach $4.9 billion by 2023, according to P&S Intelligence.

The market is predominantly driven by rapid urbanization, increasing demand for safety and security in railway systems, infrastructural growth, and advancements in the rail technology.

Insights into market segments

On the basis of component, the train control management system market has been categorized into vehicle control unit, mobile communication gateway, human–machine interface (HMI), and others. In terms of value, the category of vehicle control units held the largest market share in 2017 and is poised to continue dominating the market in the coming years as well. However, the fastest growth in the market during the forecast period is expected from the mobile communication gateway category. This can be attributed to enhanced safety and security, better operational efficiency, and on-board video surveillance facilitated by mobile communication gateway.

Train Control Management System Market

Based on network, the train control management system market has been categorized into multifunction vehicle bus (MVB), ethernet consist network (ECN), wired train bus (WTB), and others. Of these, WTB generated the largest revenue in the market in 2017, accounting for over 35% share. However, it is the ECN category that is expected to witness faster market growth, as compared to other categories, during the forecast period. This can be mainly attributed to the benefits offered by the ECN, such as reasonable ownership cost, efficient train traffic management through on-board network data transmission, and improved passenger safety.

Globally, Europe led the train control management system market during the historical period, accounting for over 45% revenue in 2017. The region is expected to continue leading the market in the coming years as well. However, during the forecast period, the market is expected to witness the fastest growth in the Rest of the World (RoW) region, primarily due to the increasing urban population in the developing countries of the region, which, in turn, is generating the demand for rapid public transit systems.

Advancements in the rail technology are driving the growth of the train control management system market

With the world being rapidly transformed by technological advancements, conventional mass transit systems, particularly railways, are also being affected. Conventional railways are phasing out gradually, especially in developed countries, and are being replaced by high-speed trains and metros. The introduction of rapid mass transit systems, such as metros and subways, has led to the demand for control and maintenance systems that can manage the system operation in these railways, in addition to keeping the passengers updated about their journey through data monitoring and utilization. The new technologies have made the railways more reliable and comfortable, thus enhancing the passenger experience. Besides, these advancements have helped prevent accidents or casualties through operation monitoring and data transmission, thereby making the railways safer. Hence, technological advancements are expected to continue driving the growth of the train control management system market in the coming years.
