Reliable and innovative transport solutions for the ever increasing population, government funding for research and development in railways, secure and faster transportation with improved levels of service for patrons, and improved occupancy while having lower expenditure for operators are driving the growth of the market. Although the potential and benefits are exceptional, the onetime costs to get this implemented across the sector in terms of upgrading infrastructure, training operators on the usage may restrict the growth of the market. Few of the salient features of smart railways are i) Predictive modeling to simulate a situation to foresee the outcome of the events helps in better maintenance, ii) analytical abilities for optimization of routes for to enable better occupancy and iii) faster services with wider coverage.
Countries like Singapore have already adopted technologies like Automatic Train Operation (ATO) and Automatic Train Control (ATC) to run its fully automatic metro line. Hungary is venturing into smart railways by adopting a monitoring technology as its first step. Europe's busiest railways in Netherlands has reported 6% increase in operating efficiency and savings over USD 27.1 million along with improved on-time operations. Smart Railways market can be segmented by products & services and by region.
