“Development of light rail transit and metros at a rapid pace to upsurge the TCMS market”
The Train Control and Management System (TCMS) market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.02% from 2017 to 2022, to reach USD 3.58 billion by 2022. The key factors driving the market growth include rapidly growing population and urbanization in the Asia Oceania region, increasing government mandates in developed regions such as North America and Europe, and availability of high-speed communication systems. The increasing rail transit network such as light rail transit, metros, and high-speed rails is also expected to boost the demand for TCMS as it is a standard system for rail safety and management. On the other hand, the major factors hindering the TCMS market growth are high infrastructural and maintenance costs and lack of interoperability.

“Metros & high-speed trains to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period”
The market for metros & high-speed trains is projected to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period. The increasing government initiatives to enhance high-speed rail network and fulfill the transportation gap in countries such as the UK, France, India, China, and South Korea are expected to drive the metros & high-speed trains segment in the TCMS market.

“Vehicle control unit is expected to be the largest market segment in the Train Control and Management System (TCMS) market”
The vehicle control unit is the most expensive component of TCMS. Thus, the vehicle control unit is estimated to be the largest segment in the TCMS market, by component. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the high installation rate of TCMS in developed regions and the increasing penetration in developing regions.

“Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) is expected to be the largest market segment in the train control solution market.”
The Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the global train control solution market during the forecast period, owing to the growing demand in European countries such as the UK, France, Germany, and Spain. CBTC eliminates additional maintenance costs as physical vehicle detection systems such as track circuits are not required. CBTC also increases the turnaround time of vehicles.

“North America to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”
Europe is estimated to be the largest market in 2017, whereas North America is estimated to see the highest growth in the TCMS market during the forecast period. The North American countries are focusing on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution by the transportation sector. Thus, the government is taking initiatives to develop light rail transit and metros at a rapid pace to follow a sustainable path, which in turn is estimated to drive the demand for TCMS market.
