Published Date : Dec 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : ICT

The global Railway Wiring Harness market size is expected to be worth around US$ 5.04 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Railway Wiring Harness market size was valued at US$ 2.4 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.8% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

Wiring harness, also called as cable harness, cable assembling or wiring loop, are the information circuits working together as a control system. It helps in joining the electric cables with conduit, vinyl and rubber. Application of wiring harness for transmission of electrical power and electric signal is expected to increase its adoption. Moreover, increased safety coupled with lesser installation cost and time can be achieved with the wiring harness as it is installed as a single unit in railways.

Rising scope of application in engines, coaches, and locomotive engines is driving the market growth. The product usage in the mechatronics of railway reduces the space consumption and increases the safety of the systems installed and thus, ensures seamless travel experience for passengers. The wiring harness are manufactured and installed as per the electric and geometric requirement of their application in the railways, such as, high-speed train, metro, monorail, and Light Rail Transit (LRT).

Europe is the major shareholder in this market owing to faster development in connected technology and railway infrastructure. The European government is focused on the developments of the rail networks in the region. By the end of 2017, Europe had 9067 kms of high-speed rail lines. Rail industry in Europe has seen vast technological advancements in railway wiring harness due to presence of a large number of manufacturers in the region.

Report Highlights

The component segment has been segregated into electric wires, terminals, connectors, and others. The others segment includes protectors, grommet, clamps, convoluted tubes, and sheaths. Wires segment led the market in 2019 and will retain its position throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the rising usage of wires in wide range of applications, such as felicitating power supplies and rail signal transmission.

Material type segment includes aluminum, copper, and others. As the main function of the wires is to transfer the electrical supply from the source to the available systems, aluminum and copper are mostly used in the wiring harness as both the metals are good conductors of electricity. However, aluminum wires are widely used in power transmission and distribution application across several wiring power grids due to a better conductivity to weight ratio than copper wires. Therefore, it is widely used across the wiring power grids. Furthermore, need for energy-efficient wiring system is crucial as it ensures efficient electricity usage and prevents leakages and short circuits. Hence, the aluminum material segment is expected to be the major shareholder and is expected to maintain its position throughout the forecast period.

Low voltage segment led the railway wiring harness market with a share of 59.9% in 2019 and will expand further retaining its leading position. This growth is credited to the increasing number of comfort systems, such as music systems, Wi-Fi devices, charger port, and others, in trains. The ability of low voltage to evenly distribute the current from transformer station to information, security, lighting, supervision systems, and cover long distance transmission networks is also anticipated to drive the segment growth. The segment’s growth is also influenced by regional developments.

High-speed rail/bullet train led the global market in 2019 and is estimated to retain its position throughout the forecast period. This growth is attributed to rising focus on high-speed rail programs and increasing government initiatives to enhance transportation and modernize railway infrastructure. Furthermore, benefits, such as freight transport and capability & accuracy to cover large geographic areas in short time is also expected to pave the way for high-speed rail/bullet trains.

Application segment consists of HVAC, lighting, brake, engine, infotainment, traction system, and others. The HVAC harness segment is expected to be the major shareholder of the application segment over the forecast period. HVAC needs good quality of wiring harness as it needs to combat extreme environment conditions, such as humidity and high temperatures. HVAC harness eliminated the need for large and complex wiring thereby, reducing the maintenance and installation cost of the overall system.

Europe accounts for the highest market share as the region has a well-established rail base. Moreover, increasing investments in rail infrastructure is one of the major reasons for Europe to be the market leader. For instance, according to the European Commission, in 2016, rail infrastructure investments in the region were USD 34.83 billion.
