Sleeper Pads Market: Introduction
Sleeper pads are customized resilient systems designed to improve the quality of the track by reducing track maintenance and to provide mitigation of vibrations by fixing elastic elements at bottom of the sleepers. Sleeper pads preserve the ballast under the tracks and improve stability. The lines having high axle loads and high speed rail lines as well as standard gauge lines can be equipped with sleeper pads. The installation of sleeper pads enables the train’s movement in safe and comfortable manner by reducing abrasion and friction. The sleeper pads can also be attached to sleepers at post production stage such as repairing and retrofitting. The ballast structure is commonly used for track bed. Constant loads causes ballast compression resulting into wear and breaking up of the rocks. These effects reduce the quality of the track geometry. The installation of sleeper beds slow down this process by distribution of axle loads over number of sleepers, increasing the contact surface between surface and ballast, weakening the dynamic vibrations in the ballast. In the recent times, the improvements in train suspension system compelled to reduce extraneous vibrations and increase stability and ride comfort. This in turn is expected to drive the sleeper pads market during the forecast period.
Sleeper Pads Market: Dynamics
To muster the needs of better transport infrastructure and urbanization, advanced transportation systems are being developed across the world. This has instilled the use of high speed railways. However the high speed railway cars can cause substantial vibrations, which can reduce ride quality and cause adverse stability. Furthermore, technological advancements in railways concerning power enhancement and speed require effective vibration reaction and efficient suspension. Owing to the ability of sleeper pads to avail suspension even at high speed and high load conditions, the demand for Sleeper Pads is projected to witness substantial growth all across the globe. The government authorities of various countries are pivoting on strengthening their networks by investing in expanding railway network in order to meet transportation demand. This is estimated to impact the sleeper pads market positively over the forecast timeline. The freight based rail locomotives are subject to mechanical stress due to heavy loads hence require installation and periodic replacement of sleeper pads.
Owing to periodic replacement and retrofitting of existing grids in the rail networks, the aftermarket sales channel of sleeper pads is estimated to project significant opportunities in the global market. Attributing to this, sleeper pads market is expected to witness healthy growth during the forecast period. Whereas, there are some factors curtailing the growth rate in global sleeper pads market such as high installation cost and difficulty for installations in existing grids. However, the current trend for deployment of better technology for improvement in results will contribute towards the growth of global sleeper pads market over the forecast period.
Sleeper Pads Market: Regional Outlook
Rapid developments in the rolling stock industry is prompted a wave of strategic flourishing in the global sleeper pad market over the coming years. In the emerging economies such as China, government are focused to sprawling railway network for high speed trains is aid to boom the sales of sleeper pads market over the coming decades. Western Europe and North America are expected to dominate the sleeper pads market owing to these region are projected to account leading share in the global rolling stock industry. Furthermore, the introduction of new projects in these regions is also expected to surge the sleeper pads in coming years. Asia pacific region is projected to create lucrative growth in the sleeper pads market, owing to rising railway passenger density over the span of coming years. Middle East & Africa is estimated to account for relatively smaller share in the global sleeper pads market owing to inadequacy in the production of railway components over the forecast period.
