Train ceiling modules consist of numerous small components that are attached to the ceiling of the passenger cabin. These components include LED lighting systems and the integration of passenger information systems & cameras. Most of the train ceiling modules are being designed a manner in which they form an air inlet and outlet duct in conjugation with the railcar body shell. Moreover, train ceiling modules are made from different materials. Numerous manufacturers are focusing on reducing the weight of these train ceiling modules by using different kinds of materials, including aluminium and plastic. Lightweight train ceiling modules not only reduce the operating cost, but also increase the efficiency of the system. Moreover, numerous manufacturers have also introduced train ceiling modules made of ready-to-assemble composite material to boost their customer base as well as market presence. The demand for more improved passenger ambient systems and train interior systems has increased significantly due to an increase in the disposable income of the population across the globe. This is expected to create growth opportunities for the train ceiling modules market across the globe in the near future.
Train Ceiling Modules Market: Market Dynamics
As the population across the globe increases, the demand for improved alternatives for local transport is also expected to increase significantly. In order to meet this demand, governments of various countries are focusing on strengthening their railway networks by investing in expanding their railway network across their respective countries. This is expected to increase the demand for improved passenger ambient systems in the railway sector, which is expected to subsequently increase the demand for train ceiling modules over the coming years. Furthermore, the introduction of advanced materials and features in train ceiling modules is also expected to boost the market over the forecast period.
Transportation by trains has been a popular option due to its low cost as compared to that of air travel. Moreover, manufacturers of train ceiling modules have been focusing on designing systems in such a way that they do not majorly boost the operating cost of trains, and this is expected to drive the train ceiling modules market over the coming years. The recent trend in train ceiling modules is the installation of LED for lighting purposes instead of halogen and fluorescent lamps. As the development of LED technology has paved its way in the recent years, problems related to lighting in railways has reduced significantly. This has also boosted the demand for train ceiling modules equipped with advanced LED technology, subsequently promoting the growth of train ceiling modules market over the coming years.
However, the initial cost of installation of these advanced train ceiling modules is high. This is likely to negatively affect their installation in each and every coach, which is likely to act as a restraint for the train ceiling modules market over the forecast period.
