About Information Technology Spending in Railways

Railway infrastructure plays a vital role in the economic and social development of a country. Globally, the traffic congestion on roads has increased. As a result, people choose trains as a mode of transportation as it is a more feasible and convenient option, especially for long-distance traveling. The rise in passenger and freight traffic has led to a surge in the adoption of IT solutions in railways.

Integration of IT solutions has not only improved operational efficiency and passenger travel experience but also reduced overall costs. Therefore, IT solutions have become a core component of almost all railway operations - from ticketing to logistics handling to catering.

Railway systems have improved significantly in the fields of security, operations, and customer services with the extensive use of information communications and technology (ICT). New technologies, such as Internet Protocol (IP)-based networks and high bandwidth systems, are used to strengthen security and safety in railways. Mobile services are integrated with railway information systems to improve customer services and enhance travel experience.

The analysts forecast the global IT spending on railways market to grow at a CAGR of 15.93% during the period 2016-2020.
