The global railway telematics market was prized by USD 10.61 billion in 2020. It is estimated to witness 7.5% CAGR from 2021 to 2028.


The growth in demand for the well-organized, and safe, transportation arrangement is projected to maintain enlargement of the market for railway telematics. Due to the improved telematics machinery, highly developed transportation structures are less expected to see losses, thus adding to the expansion. The growing rail cargo shipping and rising demand for the digitalization of railcar following are a few input factors, expected to steer the expansion.

US railway telematics market

Mainly, the railway telematics arrangements are put into practice by insurance companies, rail corporations and rail management companies, to check the performance and location of the railcars. Telematics resolutions follow the position and passage of a vehicle via bringing together the Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and on the train diagnostics arrangement.

The Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and diagnostics arrangement jointly can trace the railcars' inside performance, place and speed. In addition, telematics resolution present information interrelated with the safety as well as security of the vehicle.

The increasing demand for well-organized, safer, and protected, transportation arrangement and enhanced budget provision for the growth of railways are positively functioning for the market.

The assured global speed of urban development is creating approach for the smart cities. The various government establishments of the world are spending on a variety of smart city plans to make better the transport infrastructure, pushing more the growth of infrastructure actions within the public transportation segment.

Effect of Covid-19

On the other hand, throughout the first half of 2020 the imposed lockdowns due to the Covid-19 pandemic, globally, hampered the freight as well as transport actions. It harmfully affected the development of the market. Because of the spread of the Covid-19 virus, during the initial half of 2020, the market experienced a major setback. The global restrictions on trade activities, furthermore, hindered the progress of the market. But, the demand for railway telematics resolutions is likely to improve, during the nearby future.

Component Type Insight

On the basis of component type, the market is subdivided into sensors, and telematics control units. The telematics control unit section held 56.48% share of the general railway telematics market, in 2020. A telematics control unit presents resolutions for tracking and two-way control of the railcars.

The sensors section is expected to develop by 8.6% CAGR, during the forecast period. The development can be credited to the investment in the progress of smart railway infrastructure and remarkable growth in the government lead. Sensors help out in rail tracking and tracing, signaling, information collection as well as checking.

Solution Insight
