Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103577 | Status : Ongoing



Wheel sensors are a significant part of the measurement system. These sensors have the ability to detect different physical parameters such as pressure, humidity, temperature and speed into electrical measurement signals. These sensors are used in the wheels to measure the speed in the power system and control the brakes to prevent the brakes from locking and the wheels from slipping, thereby reducing accidents and disasters. The rapid development of railway infrastructure has brought about the vulnerability of these accidents, which has affected related components such as axle spacing and rail tracks. Also, the ability to withstand environmental conditions such as temperature fluctuations creates high demand for these sensors in the market. Increasing emphasis on safety, developing railway infrastructure and other factors have become the main growth drivers of the market.

Key Market Driver -

Rapid development in the rail infrastructure and rising safety concerns are expected to drive the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Key Market Restraint -

High cost may hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period

Market Segmentation:

Globally, the rail wheel sensor market is segmented by product type, by application type, and by geographic coverage. The product type is further segmented into single wheel sensors, and double wheel sensors. The double wheel sensor holds the major share in the global market owing to the capability to detect metal mass in the wheel flange to generate electrical signals. The double wheel sensor also detects directions, measures speed and counts axles. The application type is further segmented into fast trains, high-speed trains and others. The high speed train segment accounts for a significant share in the global market as compared to other trains types. The growing urbanization, development of rail infrastructures as well as adoption of technologically advanced features in transportation system especially in developing countries has created high demand for wheel sensors in high-speed trains.
