Europe to Hold the Largest Share in the Global Train Control and Management System Market

Fri, 26 July 2019 3:59

A train control and management system performs processing, distribution, and control functions to facilitate the smooth running of a train. These systems provide improved consistency with short trip times, enhance the speed of the train, as well as the safety and security of passengers, staff, and assets. Governments across the world are investing in improving and upgrading the current transportation infrastructure, which is driving the growth of the train control and management system market. 

Segment Insights

The global train control and management system can be segmented on the basis of train type, component, train control solution, and region. On the basis of train type, the market can be segmented into metros and high-speed trains, electric multiple units, and diesel multiple units. Metros and high-speed trains are registering demand due to increasing infrastructure investments around the globe. For instance, Colombia invested USD 4.4 billion in the Bogota metro rail project, while Saudi Arabia invested USD 22.5 Billion in metro rail infrastructure.

On the basis of component, the market can be segmented into vehicle control units, mobile communication gateway, human-machine interface, and others. Mobile communication gateway is pegged to be the fastest-growing segment. Enhanced safety, security, and operational efficiency and on-board video surveillance drive the demand for this segment.

On the basis of train control solution, the market can be segmented into positive train control, communication-based train control, and integrated train control. Benefits such as reduced maintenance cost and enhanced interoperability of the communication-based train control system drive the growth of the segment.

Regional Insight
