Railway Track Fittings Market: Introduction

Railway track fittings are designed for maintaining alignment and improvement in quality of the track by reducing track maintenance and to provide mitigation of vibrations. The purpose of providing track fittings and fastenings in railway tracks is to hold the rails at their proper position to ensure the smooth running of trains. The lines having high axle loads and high speed rail lines as well as standard gauge lines can be equipped with railway track fittings. Constant loads creates tension resulting into misalignment of the tracks. These effects reduce the quality of the track geometry. The proper installation of railway track fittings enables the train’s movement in safe and comfortable manner by reducing abrasion and friction. These fastenings and fittings are used to join rail tracks with each other as well as to fix them with the sleepers. The fishplates are commonly used for track fittings. Fishplate is a metal bar bolted to the end of the two rails to connect and hold them together.

In the recent times, improvements in railways to compellingly reduce irrelevant vibrations and increase stability are expected to propel the growth of railway track fittings market. Moreover, the global railway track fittings market is projected to be fueled by the expansion in railway networks to fulfil the transportation requirement from increasing industrialization.
