Railway Management Systems Market size is projected to exceed USD 55 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
Rising urbanization and increasing congestion and energy consumption in train traffic operation is said to drive the industry growth. The growing need to optimize the existing rail infrastructure and adoption of smart mobility solutions will also propel the market demand. Several major economies are investing in the expansion and modernization of rail networks to speed up the delivery of transport services. For instance, in September 2020, the Wokingham government announced an investment of USD 11.50 million to upgrade the signaling system at Wokingham’s railway network in Berkshire. The signaling and infrastructure enhancements are focused on improving the reliability and flexibility of railway services for passengers by 2021.
The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has negatively impacted the railway management systems market revenue due to the imposition of stringent lockdown measures globally. Travel restrictions and the temporary closure of manufacturing facilities to prevent transmission and ensure social distancing have hampered the industry expansion in FY2020. However, with the gradual reopening of factories and relaxation on travel restrictions, will augment traction over the coming years.
