Development in the European and Asian Region Drives Growth of IoT in Railways

New ARC Advisory Group research on the Internet of Things in Railways market reveals that smart, connected, IoT-enabled solutions should help revive this outdated, yet very crucial industry.  This technology disruption will help rail compete effectively against other modes of transportation and thus should be welcomed by all stakeholders. Intelligent trains provide the means for sustainable transportation, while bringing in a new era for passenger experience, smooth operations, and unprecedented access to information. Despite temporary budgetary constraints, governments in mature and emerging markets alike aim to develop their respective economies through investment in infrastructure and efficient transport solutions.  In that regard, the railway industry remains strategic, spurring global investment.

“Europe and Asia are promising markets for the growth of IoT in railways due to growing population and urban migration, especially in cities.  Across Asia, urban, intercity, and freight fleets need to be expanded in line with infrastructure improvements and economic growth.  Significant investments have been made to accommodate and extend railways for the public” according to Muhammad Wasay Rashid, Lead Transportation and Smart Cities Analyst at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Internet of Things in Railways Global Market Research report.
