Digital Railway Market Insights- 2030

Digital railway refers to the digitalization and transformation of technologies, which help in modernizing railway operations, automating ticketing processing, customer service support, and preparing maintenance schedule with self-learning algorithms and managing railway traffic. It implies the integration of latest software solutions with the railway infrastructure to meet the growing demand for people in an efficient manner and provide safer rail services. Digital railway is a government supported initiative, which aims to deliver significant improvements in train control, command, and signaling systems within a period of time. The objective to digitalize railway is to increase in overall capacity, enhanced safety, and reduction in delays. This would eventually drive down their operating costs and benefit both passengers and business users. Digital railway is not a technology program but very much a method for business change with the capability for going well beyond digitalizing existing technology. 

Impact of COVID-19 on Digital Railway Market-

  • Attributed to the spread of COVID-19 virus, various industries were affected by the imposed lockdown. However, digital railway market flourished amidst pandemic situations.
