over the forecast period of 2020-2026.
The railway industry is in a
position to experience the opportunities created by the Industrial Internet of
Things. The new services, such as asset management, integrated security, and
predictive maintenance, are expected to improve decision-making for issues like
safety, and system capacity. The intelligent construction of railways has
become an inevitable choice to promote the innovation and development of railways
and enhance their core competitiveness.
Smart railways represent
interconnected technological solutions and modern transportation infrastructure
like digital displays, and smart meters to optimize the usage of assets, to
meet the ever-growing demand for energy-efficient and safer services these
systems require high data rate wireless connectivity and integrated software
solutions. This is driving the growth of the smart railway industry.
Furthermore, the increasing importance of sustainability, government
regulations, demographics, and the growing importance of smart cities provides
a growing demand for the market. The rail industry underwent a major revolution
with the appearance of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the adoption of smart
city projects. This led to the development of smart ticketing, passenger
infotainment solution, rail analytics, and dynamic route scheduling and
planning. Industrial IoT-based solutions have eventually reinforced competitive
advantages Additionally, the adoption of other automation technologies to
enhance the service offering drives the market growth. However, operational
inefficiency, the lack of infrastructure and interoperability, the high initial
cost of deployment, and the integration complexities over legacy systems and
the network, is affecting the growth of the smart railway market. Moreover, an
autonomous train provides a significant growth opportunity for the market.
Europe is the dominant smart
railway market. The well-established railway infrastructure, and countries have
been investing majorly to modernize the existing rail infrastructure is driving
the growth of the smart railway market. In Europe where population growth is
slower, still, it shows a rise in the railway share of transport. Also, passenger
rail transport demand is being driven by a growing demand for intercity and
interurban mobility. The demand for long-distance rail journeys is growing in
many countries and this growth is expected to increase with further development
of the high-speed rail network in Europe. The Asia Pacific is the
second-largest market for the smart railway market due to emerging countries
like China, India, and Japan has in-depth research in smart cities.
