The connected rail market was estimated to be USD 77.27 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 105.44 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.42%. The growing urbanization, continuous growth in population in metro cities, and congested roads have directly increased the demand for public transport like railways, which directly boost the market for connected rail.


The Computer Based Train Control (CBTC) are upgraded system of typical old-block signaling system.

The CBTC equipped train are capable of calculating, communicating, and providing update through radio to the wayside equipment distributed along the line.

CBTC system allows the optimal utilization of the existing rail infrastructure in achieving maximum capacity and minimum headway between operating trains, while maintaining the safety requirements. These technology have fueled the growth of connected rail technology.

Every industry requires maintenance schedule after certain period, in order to ensure things are on the flow without any constraints. The railway industry, where before practicing preventive maintenance at the early stage, later on shifted to predictive maintenance, which optimized management of spares and inventories parts, real time monitor of rail, reduction of down time and delays.

Reducing downtime and early prediction of maintenance are the key to the efficient rail transport, which directly drives the connected rail market.

The break-up of the primaries is as follows:

  • By Company Type - OEM - 56%, Tier 1 - 19%, Tier 2 - 25%
  • By Designation - C level - 40%, D level - 24%, Others - 36%
  • By Region - North America - 16%, Europe - 25%, Asia-Pacific - 30%, RoW- 29%
