Market Overview
The CAGR for the Intelligent Railway Transport System Market is expected to be 26.6% until December 2022. The market is expected to be worth 90 billion in US Dollars by then. The intelligent railway transport system market uses the latest in Information Technology and technological advancements to manage the railway industry and its many services. 


The Intelligent Railway Transport System Market has been experiencing phenomenal growth in recent years largely because its popularity has been increasing in recent years. This is buoyed by two main purposes of the railway transport system:



  • To use the latest in security systems and technologies to protect passengers

  • To provide the best railway experience and customer service to customers.


COVID-19 analysis


COVID-19 has affected the Intelligent Railway Transport System Market, but this may be short-lived. National governments have imposed temporary quarantines and/or indefinite lockdowns.  


This has restricted the movement of passengers somewhat. The new ‘stay at homestay safe orders’ only compounds this problem. The main issue the intelligent railway transport system market faces in the short-term is finding enough customers to allow it to stay financially viable. The railway industry in general is taking greater sanitary measures like checking the temperature of each passenger before boarding and thoroughly sanitizing trains after each ride. This has helped it attract more customers in the short-term.


 


Market Dynamics

Drivers


The increased popularity and use of the Internet of Things in terms of technology is what is driving growth in the intelligent railway transport system market. Also, more and more trains are offering customers free Internet-based services like free WIFI. This has motivated many people to try using trains as a primary means of transportation. Many of these people are first-time customers.


 


Opportunities


More and more transporters like bus and aviation systems are using the intelligent railway transport system. Some of these transporters are using this system as a primary means of transportation. The entire railway industry has responded by managing railway systems and services better. These two factors are creating many more opportunities for the intelligent railway transport system market.


 


Restraints


There are some factors that are holding growth in the intelligent railway transport system market back. These are the facts that installing (and training people to use) these intelligent technologies is very expensive. This forces many railway companies to pass the extra cost on to the end customer in the form of higher prices. 


There is also a real lack of the infrastructure needed for intelligent trains to operate to full capacity. Installing this infrastructure will be a difficult, expensive, and time-consuming process.


 


Challenges


The main challenge facing the entire intelligent transport railway system industry is adaptation. Many people don’t ride even if they could afford to because they don’t know how to use these technologies. This makes them feel intimidated.


 


Cumulative growth analysis


The CAGR of the global intelligent transport railway system industry is expected to be above 25% until at least the end of 2022. The market is expected to be worth almost 100 billion US Dollars by then. 


 


Technology analysis


New technological advances have helped growth for the intelligent transport railway system industry increase exponentially in recent years. Some of these advances have been the introduction of new devices and systems that make collecting fares and tracking passengers quick and easy. Seat information, fares, and other relevant and vital information are also made electronically available for passengers. This streamlines the entire railway experience for customers, makes it more pleasant for them, and encourages more people to ride intelligent trains.
