The global Autonomous trains market was $25.6 Bn in 2019, and is expected to reach $46 Bn, growing at a CAGR of more than 9% throughout the forecast period. Globally, work and contracts related to autonomous trains are postponed due to COVID impact. In a post covid scenario, as an array of international events are lined up, would lead to speedy infrastructure development across all regions, helping the market to bounce back.
Major applications of autonomous train market covered in report are passenger trains, freight, and mining. The report has been segmented by automation type into four different categories such as GoA 1, GoA 2, GoA 3, and GoA 4. The type of train operation for Grade of Automation (GoA) or GoA 1 is Driver with ATP (Automatic Train Protection), for GoA 2 it is ATP and ATO with driver, for GoA 3 it is DTO (Driverless Train Operation), and for GoA 4 the type of train operation is UTO (Unattended Train Operation). These various grades of operation refer to different kinds of levels of automated operations of the train. The global autonomous train market has been further segmented geographically into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.
Autonomous train market has been on a growing stage throughout the forecast period. Autonomous trains will be one of the major trends to gain traction in this market in the upcoming years. In modern automation system of trains, train operations are controlled and monitored automatically with no driver on board. This autonomous technology and its application are penetrating in different spheres of the transport industry. Autonomous trains are equipped with sensors, high-powered cameras, GPS data, and onboard computer systems which are connected to the control rooms. The data collected from sensors enables the train to take decision by itself. The autonomous technology is expected to mount the speed of the trains that will raise the number of trains running per track. Thus autonomous trains are expected to be the future of rail transport system.
Some of the major players in the autonomous trains market are Bombardier Transportation, Siemens AG, Alstom S.A., Thales Group, Ansaldo STS, Incheon Transit Corporation, Beijing Traffic Control Technology among others.
