By offering, the services segment to account for a higher CAGR during the forecast period

The demand for smart railways services is driven by the growing number of passengers each year. Software, hardware, and other technologies that make up smart railway systems redefine how to train assets and rail network connectivity are employed. Information and communication technology (ICT) integration with intelligent transportation systems enables this. Rail companies depend on streamlined and reliable asset operations, maintenance, and continuously growing infrastructure to successfully meet the rapidly multiplying requirements. The increased requirement for an efficient ecosystem with a reduction of expenses is driving the segment.

By solution, the rail communication and networking segment to account for the largest market share in 2022

The use of intelligent communication solutions in a variety of railway management applications aids in improving rapid decision-making for problems, including asset deployment, usage, and maintenance. For stations, control and dispatch centers, and rolling stock to communicate accurately and on time to maintain security, safety, and uninterrupted service, railroad operations must be efficient. Therefore, signaling, phone, video, and data traffic must be reliably sent over railway lines and across backbone transmission networks using railway communication systems.

Unique Features in the Smart Railways Market

In order to monitor track conditions, identify obstructions, and optimise maintenance schedules, smart railways integrate digital infrastructure components like cameras, sensors, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. This ensures operating efficiency and safety.

By using predictive maintenance algorithms and analytics to keep an eye on the condition of trains, tracks, and signalling systems, smart railways save downtime and enable proactive maintenance by resolving problems before they become major ones.

In order to improve the entire passenger experience, smart railways offer real-time passenger information systems that disseminate current information about train timetables, delays, and service disruptions to passengers via digital displays, mobile apps, and announcements.

In order to maximise revenue collection for operators and improve passenger convenience, smart railways provide integrated ticketing and fare collecting systems that support contactless payments, smartphone ticketing and seamless tariff integration across various forms of transportation.

In order to improve capacity and safety on rail networks, smart railroads use automated train control systems like ETCS (European Train Control System) and CBTC (Communications-Based Train Control) to provide accurate train location, speed control, and collision avoidance.

Major Highlights of the Smart Railways Market

Increased investments in smart trains to alleviate traffic, shorten travel times, and enhance connection in metropolitan areas are a result of urbanisation and population growth increasing the demand for effective and sustainable transportation solutions.

In order to minimise their environmental impact, satisfy sustainability targets, and cut carbon emissions, smart railways are using eco-friendly practices, regenerative braking systems, and energy-efficient technologies. The rail sector is placing an increasing emphasis on sustainability.

Through features including integrated ticketing and fee systems, contactless payment methods, real-time passenger information systems, and facilities at smart stations that increase passenger comfort and convenience, smart trains aim to improve the overall passenger experience.

With investments in technologies like automated train control systems, video surveillance, and emergency communication systems, smart railways prioritise safety and security above all else. These measures improve passenger safety, avert accidents, and facilitate efficient emergency response.

By implementing smart railway technologies like predictive maintenance, asset management systems, and centralised control centres, train operators are undergoing digital transformation projects to modernise operations, increase efficiency, and facilitate data-driven decision-making.

Top Key Companies in the Smart Railways Market

Key and emerging market players include Alstom (France), Cisco (US), Wabtec (US), ABB (Switzerland), IBM (US), Hitachi (Japan), Huawei (China), Indra Sistemas (Spain), Siemens (Germany), Honeywell (US), Thales (France), Advantech (Taiwan), Fujitsu (Japan), Toshiba (Japan), Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (France), Moxa (Taiwan), EKE-Electronics (Finland), Televic (Belgium), Uptake (US), Eurotech (Italy), Tego (US), KONUX (Germany), Aitek S.p.A (Italy), Assetic (Australia), Machines With Vision (UK), Delphisonic (US) Passio Technologies (US), Cloud Moyo (US), Chemito (India). To expand in the market for smart railroads, these firms have used a variety of strategies, including new product releases, business expansions, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, agreements, and collaborations.

A key player in the market for smart railways is Alstom (France). The company provides passenger and freight locomotives, tramways, high-speed trains, suburban trains, regional trains, tram-trains, and tramways. Additionally, it offers signalling goods such interlocking devices, track sides, security and control systems, and rail-control systems. The business creates and implements solutions for track laying, line electrification and power supply, and electromechanical equipment supply. Alstom used inorganic growth prospects including deals and agreements to maintain its dominant position in the market for smart railways. An organisation that specialised in the design and production of brake linings (pads and shoes) for braking systems, such as Flertex, was purchased by Alstom in April 2021. Alstom’s expertise in braking systems, a crucial component of trains’ overall technical performance, is widened and strengthened by the acquisition.

Another significant competitor in the market for smart railways is Hitachi (Japan), which provides smart railway systems to both Japanese and international railroad operators. To assist railway operators in achieving improved passenger comfort and decreased train headway, the company includes digital signalling technologies in its solutions, such as digital Automatic Train Protection (ATP), Automatic Train Operation (ATO), and Communication Based Train Control (CBTC). To build its railway business, the firm has embraced inorganic growth options like contracts and mergers. For instance, in March 2021, Hitachi Rail and Italy’s Trenitalia inked a contract to work together to offer integrated logistic support for the 59-train ETR 500-Frecciarossa high-speed fleet. The integrated support is anticipated to improve high-speed operations in Italy’s operations.
