The Global Smart Railways Market is estimated to be USD 24.4 Bn in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 45.96 Bn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 13.5%.

The smart railway shows the potential of improving traditional railway systems with the development of IoT, Cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, satellite positioning, navigation, etc. The infrastructure comprises various components, including multimedia infotainment displays, video surveillance cameras, and networking and connectivity devices at stations. The rail operators mainly use Global System for Mobile Communications-Railways (GSM-R) for voice and data communications.

The market is driven by the increasing importance of sustainability, government regulations, the growing importance of high-quality infrastructure for smart cities, the incredible pace of telecommunications and technological change, and the need for mobility. The introduction of metro rail and high-speed rail projects in smart cities are the factors fueling the growth of the market.

The high initial cost of deployment and lack of technology infrastructure & interoperability restrains the smart railways market. The operational inefficiency is hindering the growth of the market. The changes in ridership outlook and entering into contracts/agreements with rail operators for business expansion are expected to offer opportunities for the expansion of the market in the near future.
