The Worldwide Connected Rail Industry is Expected to Reach $124.5 Billion by 2027

Dublin, Oct. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Connected Rail Market by Service (Passenger Mobility, PIS, Train Tracking & Monitoring, Automated Fare Collection, Predictive maintenance, Freight Management), Rail Signaling System (PTC, CBTC & ATC), Rolling Stock and Region - Global forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The connected rail market is estimated to be USD 94.6 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 124.5 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 5.6%.

OEMs are likely to invest in rail infrastructure to provide safety & signaling systems. In addition, investment in rail digitalization to provide services such as passenger information, train tracks, and others would boost the market for the connected rail system. The connected public transportation also provides efficient traffic management and a convenient traveling experience, but the slow growth in developing countries would affect the overall growth of the connected rail market.

Growing inter-state trade agreements is likely to propel the growth of the Freight Wagon segment during the forecast period

Freight wagons, also known as unpowered bogies, are used for carrying goods and cargo, which are propelled by prime movers (diesel or electric). The bogies consist of regular couplers and other fittings, such as hoses for air brakes, allowing different wagon types to be assembled into prime movers. The growth of the connected rail industry in the region can be attributed to urbanization in countries such as China and India and investments in freight rail infrastructure to support the mining and natural resource markets in these countries. In 2020, Siemens AG signed a contract with VTG Rail Europe GmbH to test its innovative Brake Monitoring System (BMS) for freight trains. Freight wagons are rolling stocks that are used to transport goods and commodities.

The railway is one of the many modes of transportation available for trade, and it is likely to be the cheapest. As compared to road transportation, this mode of transportation can carry a large amount of cargo in a single trip, while still taking less time over long distances than a maritime route. Governments all over the world are putting a premium on last-mile connectivity for trade, resulting in a boom in investment in logistical infrastructure. The number of projects to expand the railway network for inter-state and intra-state trade is growing. On similar grounds, innovations such as dedicated freight corridors are expected to boost trading opportunities, thus increasing the demand for freight wagons.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest market during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing region in terms of the growth of the connected rail market, due to the increase in the adoption of new technologies, higher investments in digital transformation, and the growth in GDP in the Asia Pacific countries. Also growing population, rising per capita income, congested urban roads, the need for seamless trade corridors, and an increasing number of metro rail projects have all contributed to the growth of the connected rail market in the Asia Pacific. The markets in other countries in the Asia Pacific are also growing, though not as fast as the major economies like China, Japan, and India. In March 2021, Hitachi Rail was awarded a supply contract for integrated logistics support for the Frecciarossa high-speed fleet. The contract worth USD 18 billion will be for a duration of six years.

North America is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period

The North American connected rail market is dominated by domestic manufacturers such as Cisco (US), IBM (US), Wabtec Corporation (US), Trimble (US), Sierra Wireless (US), and CalAmp (US). The US government, in an effort to increase the safety and security of the country's railways, has instituted certain mandates, which, in turn, has resulted in increased R&D by local and international railway rolling stock and technology manufacturers. The increasing use of technology in railways presents several opportunities for connected rail technology manufacturers.
