Factors influencing rail gangways market growth

Railways are an integral part of the public transportation systems across the globe and will play a crucial role in the years to come owing to increasing passenger density, changing travelling mediums and growing urbanization across the globe. Therefore, sprawling railway infrastructure is projected to drive the global rail gangways market during the forecast period. Furthermore, supportive government schemes for the development of high speed train infrastructure, smart railways and inclusion of digitalization and transpportation predictive analytics in trams, metro and high speed trains are the other important factors expected to give a boost to the global rail gangways market during the forecast period.

The railway ministry is also focused on enhancing the safety of passengers and trains. Therefore, manufacturers are installing gangways doors between rail gangways to block the path of fire through the automatic sliding mechanism in case of an accident.

Two piece gangways segment is anticipated to dominate during the forecast period

Two piece gangways systems are generally used where passenger density is high, such as in Europe, North America, China and others. In Japan, India and other countries, single piece gangways are generally used. Thus, rising passenger density in respective regions or countries is expected to provide bilateral support to the global rail gangways market during the forecast period.     

The value share of the two piece rail gangways segment is projected to be 3.5X the value share of single piece gangways segment over the forecast period. In terms of incremental $ opportunity, the two piece rail gangways segment is projected to create 2.7X the opportunity created by single piece rail gangways segment over the slated time period.

Sprawling high speed rail network and expanding fleet of metro trains are the two main factors supporting the growth of the global rail gangways market

These days, high speed rail transportation has become a need for the middle-class population. To cater to this demand, governments are introducing schemes for improving connectivity between cities. This is projected to ramp up the rail gangways market across the globe. Moreover, large scale investments are being made to improve the rail sector in China. These investments are expected to push the growth of the global rail gangways market over the forecast period.

By train type, passenger train segment is projected to dominate while growing at a CAGR of 4.2% during the slated time period. The special train segment, on the other hand, is expected to hold minor share. However, in terms of year-over-year growth, the special train segment is anticipated to grow at a significant growth rate during the forecast period.
