Autonomous Trains Components Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Production, Consumption and Forecast 2020 to 2027

The global autonomous trains components market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of more than 8.3 % during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Autonomous trains is an advanced railway transport system coupled with sophisticated technologies in order to augment their safe operation. Autonomous trains are completely automatic and possess their own intelligence communication system (CBTC -Communication based train control) that decides their movement such as how much distance has been traveled, where to stop, when to stop, and other obstacles. Technologically advanced systems are adopted in these trains, which include Automatic Train Operation (ATO), Automatic Train Protection (ATP), Driverless Train Automation (DTO), Automatic Train Control (ATC), Semi-Automatic Train Operation (STO), and Unattended Train Operation (UTO) in order to operate these trains without the aid of a driver, thereby increasing safety of the passengers. These trains are furnished with high-powered vision cameras, latest sensors, antennae, LiDAR, GPS data, and onboard computer systems. Operation of the autonomous train is achieved through different components that can be automated and based on the mechanization of components, the Grades of Automation (GoA) are decided. The autonomous train also contains the passenger safety technology, which are a part of the autonomous train protection system.

Railways are considered the most adept and safe means of transport, as compared to roadways, owing to the limited number of accidents chronicled. Autonomous trains are fully automated and operate using advanced electronic appliances and machinery, unlike conventional trains, which have to follow their own old signaling systems and the drivers are completely responsible for the safe movement of the trains. Autonomous trains offer greater reliability, efficiency, performance, and safety, as compared to conventional trains. This is expected to be a key factor driving the autonomous train components market during the forecast period. Increasing government support across the world for incorporation of automation in trains, as they are economical and a safe means of transport, is expected to boost the autonomous trains components market during the forecast period.

In railway transport systems, autonomous trains are a highly sophisticated technology, which offers a significantly less polluting and economical mode of transportation. Therefore, governments of various nations are focusing on the development of autonomous trains. Adoption of automation in trains is likely to boost the autonomous trains components market during the forecast period due to rising government support. Key drivers of the autonomous trains components market are increasing demand for safety, reduction in pollution, and government support. Currently, in emerging autonomous trains, operations are monitored and controlled automatically. Even critical decisions such as when to run and stop the train are decided by the automated control system, without any human intervention. Autonomous trains are also equipped with an automatic train protection (ATP) system that has the ability to automatically stop at signals and serves the purpose of speed control, resulting in increased safety and reliability. Autonomous trains are equipped with advance electronic appliances and onboard computer systems in order to provide accurate information about position, speed, and time. The data is collected from sensors that are monitored at control rooms, which in turn enables the autonomous system to make an informed decision.

Rising urbanization in developing countries is boosting the demand for faster and economical trains. This, in turn, is fueling the adoption and incorporation of autonomous trains. Considering these factors, governments across the globe are focusing on adoption of automation in trains. This can be witnessed from the increasing number of rail transit systems.
