Track Geometry Measurement System Market Report – Key Takeaways:

  • Heavy Haul Railways Segment to Register Highest Growth

By Railway Type, Heavy Haul Railways segment is analyzed to grow with the highest CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period 2023-2030. This is owing to Heavy Haul Railways are often used for transporting bulk goods such as coal, minerals, and heavy machinery. To maximize the efficiency of these operations, it is important to optimize the load distribution across the train. Track Geometry Measurement Systems help assess track conditions, identify areas with load restrictions, and determine the maximum allowable load per axle or per train set. In May 2023, in Shuozhou City in northern China, the country’s first intelligent heavy-haul train operation and maintenance system has been introduced. The technology will result in a more than 20% improvement in China’s railway infrastructure’s overall operational quality.

  • Asia-Pacific is Leading the Market

Asia-Pacific region held a major market share in 2022 and is analyzed to continue its dominance over the market growing at CAGR 6.1% during the forecast period 2023-2030. The demand for Track Geometry Measurement System market in Asia-Pacific is increasing owing to the rise in government-led initiatives and companies to upgrade transportation infrastructure, particularly in emerging nations. In Malaysia, various initiatives have been undertaken to improve track geometry measurement and maintenance. One notable project is the implementation of the Track Geometry Measurement System (TGMS) by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), the national railway company of Malaysia. TGMS is a sophisticated technology that uses laser-based sensors to accurately measure and monitor track geometry parameters in real-time.

  • Contact Based segment is Leading the Market

By Operation Type, Contact Based segment held a major market share in 2022 and is set to witness a growth of CAGR 4.8% during 2023-2030. Contact-based systems offer stability during measurement operations. The physical contact between the measurement device and the track provides a stable reference point, resulting in consistent and reliable measurements. Contact-based systems provide higher accuracy in measuring track geometry parameters compared to non-contact systems. The direct contact with the track allows for precise measurements of parameters such as gauge, alignment, and cross-level. Being the most commonly used operation type, the market is set to witness growth owing to the growing investments towards setting up of new railways corridors especially in countries such as India during the forecast period 2023-2030

  • High Cost of Implementation as a Major Challenge

The high cost of implementation act as a major challenge for the Track Geometry Measurement System market. TGMS involves significant upfront costs for railway operators or maintenance companies. Installing the necessary infrastructure, sensors, data processing systems and integrating them with existing railway systems can be expensive. Moreover, railway operators or maintenance companies often have limited budgets allocated for infrastructure upgrades and maintenance. The high cost of implementing TGMS may exceed the available funds, making it difficult for organizations to invest in the technology. Limited financial resources can hinder the adoption of TGMS, especially for smaller or financially constrained entities.

Key Opportunity Analysis:

Increasing Railway Infrastructure Investments

The rising railway infrastructure investments can create opportunities for the growth of the Track Geometry Measurement Market. Many countries and regions are investing in the expansion, modernization, and maintenance of their railway networks. According to India Brand Equity Foundation, Infrastructure development is essential if India is to achieve its goal of having a $5 trillion economy by 2025. In order to boost the growth of the infrastructure industry, the government has introduced the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP), along with other programmes like “Make in India” and the production-linked incentives (PLI) plan. Historically, financing for transportation, energy, and water and irrigation has accounted for more than 80% of the nation’s infrastructure investment.

Introduction of Autonomous Trains

The introduction of autonomous trains can indeed lead to an increased demand for track geometry measurement systems due to the critical role they play in ensuring safety, optimizing performance, enabling preventive maintenance, and supporting data-driven decision making which in turn create opportunities for the growth of the market. These systems are essential for maintaining and improving the infrastructure required to support autonomous train operations effectively. In July 2023, Chennai Metro plans to purchase 70 more driverless trains for its Phase II project. Bids for the 70 three-coach trains have been solicited, and the contract is expected to be awarded within the next 4-6 months. The first autonomous train is expected to arrive in mid-2024. Such innovations and investments in autonomous railway infrastructure will create opportunities for the growth of the Track Geometry Measurement Market.

Covid and Ukrainian Crisis Impact:

The COVID-19 epidemic has left a significant impact on the TGMS sector. Rising coronavirus incidence throughout the world prompted strict social separation and lockdown standards, causing supply chain disruption and hurting product demand. The COVID-19 problem impacted sectors globally, with the global economy suffering the most in 2020 and perhaps 2021. The pandemic caused damage on main businesses such as shipping, retail, and e-commerce. The major fall in the transportation industry has hampered the expansion of the worldwide TGMS market.

The Russia-Ukraine war has broader consequences on the global economy, including energy prices, supply chains, and trade flows. These macroeconomic factors have indirectly impacted overall demand for Track Geometry Measurement Systems.
