Automatic Train Control Market – Global Forecast to 2023: Technological Advancement Targeted Toward Passenger Convenience & Emerging Trend of Smart Cities

DUBLIN, March 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The “Automatic Train Control Market by Automation (GoA 1, GoA 2, GoA 3, GoA 4), Service (Consulting, Integration & Deployment), Train Type (Urban (Metro & High-Speed Trains), Mainline (Passenger & Freight Trains)), and Region – Global Forecast to 2023″ report has been added to’s offering.

The global ATC market size is expected to grow from USD 2.2 billion in 2018 to USD 3.6 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.3% during the forecast period.

Major growth factors for the market include high population growth and hyper-urbanization, technological advancements targeting passenger convenience, and the emerging trend of smart cities. However, the high cost of deployment and operational inefficiency could restrain the market growth.

GoA 4 to grow at the highest CAGR during forecast period

GoA 4 is also termed as an Unattended Train Operation (UTO) system. Therefore, the safe departure of the train from a station, including door closing, must be done automatically. The UTO system can detect and manage the hazardous conditions and emergency conditions by introducing guideway intrusion detection, platform, and onboard CCTV, etc. UTO is only possible for systems with GoA 4; however, in practice, not all GoA 4 systems are operated unattended. Based on the observations of automated metros, most of the GoA 4 systems are operated with attendants onboard every train. Hence, GoA 4 systems can be operated either unattended or with an attendant onboard.

Asia Pacific (APAC) to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period

APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing region in the ATC market by region, due to the increase in the adoption of new technologies, higher investments for digital transformation, and increasing GDP in APAC countries. Singapore, China, Korea, Hong Kong, and India are rapidly investing in technological transformation. Additionally, with the rapid deployment of metros in Asian cities, the deployment of ATC solutions is on the rise. The high population growth rate in the region has intensified the need for transformation and expansion of the existing rail infrastructure. The presence of untapped potential markets, high penetration of advanced technologies, growing freight use in various industries, and economic developments and government regulations are expected to drive the ATC market growth.

Major vendors in the global ATC market include General Electric Company (GE), Toshiba Corporation (Toshiba), Alstom SA (Alstom), Tech Mahindra, WSP, Cisco Systems (Cisco), Hitachi, Bombardier, Siemens, Thales, Kyosan Electric Manufacturing Ltd (Kyosan), Mermec, Advantech, Mipro, and ADLINK Technology.

These players have adopted product launches and partnership strategies to sustain their position in the global ATC market.
