"Market Intelligence for High-Geared Performance"
Communication-based Train Control (CBTC) is a modern communication-based system that uses radio communications to transmit accurate and timely train control information. CBTC is the choice of mass transit operators currently, with over a 100 systems installed worldwide. CBTC systems include Automated Train Supervision (ATS), Automated Train Operation (ATO), and Automated Train Protection (ATP) technologies, which combine to make a train wholly automated and driverless.
Several of the industry's key companies use different growth strategies such as mergers, acquisitions, partnerships, and agreements to enhance their market position.
Rail accidents are the primary motivation for implementing CBTC systems. According to the International Union of Railways, Europe leads the way in rail accidents, accounting for 58% during the last two decades, followed by Africa with 29%. Rail collisions accounted for over 60% of all rail incidents in Norway in 2019. Train control systems based on communication are intelligent enough to prevent accidents by nearly 99.9% and boost efficiency. These factors will positively impact the approval of CBTC systems.
A rapidly growing population, growing need for fast and safe commutes, and requirement for accident-free rail transit, among other factors are surging the demand for communication-based train control systems for metros and trains. Subway CBTC systems are in high order due to high adoption across developed countries to reduce human error, protect cargo and goods from theft, and make their rail lines safe.
Rail infrastructure consumes major capital and maintenance costs for a track, engineering structures such as tunnels and bridges, train signaling, communication systems, power supply in electrified sections, and terminal infrastructure. These infrastructural costs, coupled with the associated costs, equipment, land acquisition, and financing, act as a restraint for the market. The train control and management system's interoperability facilitates communication between trains from different regions. The variable technical specifications increase the cost of running train communication systems.
The COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the operations of the railway sector. Due to the pandemic, major railway projects have been halted. Personal mobility increased dramatically as a result of the pandemic. The railway industry witnessed a major drop in demand for new trains as people shunned public transportation, preferring private vehicles to avoid crowds. Furthermore, component manufacturing has been halted, and tiny Tier II and Tier III firms have suffered financial losses. The railway sector is very capital-intensive & requires constant funding to stay in business. As a result, production halt and decreasing demand following the pandemic had an extraordinary impact on rail manufacturers & service providers.
GoA1- Train Operator controls train manually
GoA3- Driverless Train Operation (DTO)
GoA4- Unattended Train Operation (UTO)
The report will cover the following key insights:
GoA1, GoA2, GoA3, and GoA4 are the four levels of automation in communication-based train control systems. GoA4 is the highest level, providing a driverless service with fewer attendants. It necessitates a high-end rail infrastructure as well as a hefty implementation cost. The majority of countries, however, are confined to GoA3. GoA2 is used in practically every country, making it the largest market shareholder, with more than a quarter of the market.

The CBTC market is segmented into four regions, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the rest of the world. APAC held the largest stake in the market. South Korea has more than 170 km of automatic new metro lines and prolonged its present metro traces with the aid of using almost 20 km within the final 10 years.
Moreover, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, and Vancouver have automatic metro traces of more than 130 km, 97 km, 80 km, and 79 km, respectively. South Korea and France are projected to go the 250 km and 200 km goals, accompanied by the aid of Malaysia and the UAE with 150 km and 130 km, respectively.
Industrialized and emerging economies, such as Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Bangladesh, characterize Asia Pacific. Major companies are investing in rail projects in Asia Pacific, owing to considerable potential in this region's rapidly growing urban population.
Europe is the second-largest market, accounting for approximately one-third of the global market for communication-based train control systems, and is expected to witness promising growth by the next decade. In France, communication-based railway operation systems are gaining traction, with cities, such as Paris, Lyon, and Marseille, leading the implementation of these systems.
