Consolidation and New Technology Will Disrupt Train Control Industry

This report serves as an effective planning guide for suppliers of rail signaling and train control systems and components as well as companies considering entry into this marketplace.  It addresses the market size and forecasted growth (2016-2021) on a global scale, market drivers and opportunities in the global market, supplier market shares, product availability, alliances, and strategies, plus the impact of key trends such as population growth, increased urbanization, awareness of the effects of carbon emissions, replacement of old trains with electrification, emergence of IIoT, and consolidation.

Chinese suppliers are winning projects outside of China, while a bevy of smaller competitors are vying for pieces of each rail transport project, making for a crowded and competitive field.

While single-digit growth is forecast for the market as a whole, tremendous potential exists for systems that meet the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) and Communication Based Traffic Control (CBTC) requirements.

Increasing standardization of rail signaling solutions is one of the most important trends impacting the market today.  Standardization allows suppliers to develop core, standards-based global architectures that both enable the interoperability necessary to meet local safety requirements and provide a common, reliable platform for building local solutions.
