1.   Market Excerpt

2.   Increasing demand for advance controlling systems and rising high speed railway projects will drive the demand for railway signalling systems.

The market for railway signaling systems expected to witness significant growth with deployment of communication-based train control (CBTC) and other advanced signaling techniques. In addition, market growth is strongly influenced by standardization processes concerning train control which are implemented in order to improve both railway traffic safety and efficiency. Rising investment in urban transportation particularly in railway networks is increasing the demand for CBTC systems globally for efficient rail traffic management. The growing number of passengers and increasing competition among operators, as well as higher expectations of comfort, are pushing railway operators to replace or modernize their rolling stock. In light of the higher usage of existing infrastructure signaling equipment modernization is key to improving network safety and capacity.

The U.S. and Europe are matured markets and most of the countries in these regions are installed with standardized rail control system. The market for railways signaling systems is expected to witness significant growth with increasing development of high speed rail networks in Asian countries such as China, India and Southeast Asia countries. The global railway signalling systems market was valued at US$ 8.0 Bn in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% over the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Market Synopsis

Railway Signalling Systems Market

Rail network expansion in Asia expected to spur the demand for railway signaling systems in the region

Increasing number of metro railway networks, particularly in Asia and Middle East represents a positive outlook for railways signaling suppliers.  Countries in Asia Pacific are increasingly investing in CBTC system. Recently, NIPPON SIGNAL has deployed protection system “SPARCS” based on CBTC for Beijing Subway Line. China has invested significant amount in its national high speed railway projects planned to extend network high speed railway network to 30,500 km to connect major 27 provinces with 11 high-speed rail lines. India and Southeast Asian countries are also investing significant amount in metro railway and high speed projects to support their economic development. Recently, India initiated its first high-speed railway project to connect its major cities Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Moreover, Virgin Hyperloop One signed agreement with Maharashtra state government to initiate first Hyperloop train project between Mumbai (financial capital of India) and Pune (major IT and manufacturing hubs in India). Similarly, more than 20 metro train projects initiated in major cities in India. All these factors, represents a positive outlook for railway signaling systems providers in the country. Similarly, Middle Eastern countries are also focusing on enhancing their railway network in the near future. United Arab Emirates is looking forward to expand its existing railway network up to 600 km by 2024 from its existing network of 264 km. All these railway expansion activities are expected to produce a demand for railway signaling systems. 

Europe and North America are expected to witness steady growth in the global railway signaling systems market due completion of high-speed rail in all major countries and cities. In addition, gradual replacement of traditional system with advance, cost effective and reliable solutions in order to provide better enhanced safety and efficiency expected to drive the market growth in this established markets.

Railway Signalling Systems Market

Communication based train control expected to witness considerable growth in the near future

In the last few years, railway operators in developed countries have shifted to communication based train control system from traditional signaling solutions for mass transit operations. With more than 100 CBTC systems installed globally it is becoming most preferred choice for railway operators. CBTC system is a modern railway signaling systems which primarily used in urban railway networks. Increasing investment in urban railway networks particularly in Asia Pacific and Middle East region is expected to drive the market growth in the next five years. Countries across the world are also investing significant amount in European Train Controlling Systems (ETCS) in order to improve safety and efficiency of railway transportation.
