Global Train Control and Management Systems Market: Overview
The train control and management system controls the operation of brakes, doors, air-conditioning and other subsystems in the train, and is often termed as the train’s nervous system. It is a train-borne distributed control system and comprises computer software and devices, analogue and digital input/ output capability, human-machine interfaces and data networks to attach all these together in a fault resistant and secure manner. TCMS provides data communications interfaces to other train-borne systems, and also telecommunications to supporting systems operating remotely on the wayside.
Rapid transit vehicles are gaining popularity owing to high passenger capacity and rapid mobility of these vehicles. Developed countries of North America and Europe have improved infrastructures for rapid transit trains such as monorails, metros and subways. Governments of developing economies such as China, India, Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia among others are investing in these types of transport systems to reduce traffic congestion on roads. Moreover, rail systems offer a wide range of benefits over other modes of conveyance, such as energy efficiency and reduction in road traffic congestion. Hence, the increasing demand for rapid transit systems is likely to fuel the demand for train control and management systems market during the forecast period.
Train control systems allows efficient management of railway traffic, optimal utilization of railway infrastructure and provide improved reliability. However, there are various risks associated with these systems. For example, failures of positive train control systems can result in train collisions and train derailments. Such factors are likely to hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period. Leading manufacturers are continuously focused on technological innovation and integration in material composition and design of train control and management systems, which in turn is expected to create significant growth opportunity for the market.
