Railway sleepers are an integral part of railroad assembly, it plays a vital role in supporting the railway lines and most importantly sharing the load evenly among the railway line. The railway sleepers are rectangular shaped and made out of wood or concrete and are placed perpendicularly. Moreover, it provides strength to the complete rail assembly by providing optimum support and it also maintains uniformity in the gauge length across the complete track. Furthermore, it provides a robust design to the track and ensures that it can hold the railway bogie and locomotive upright. Traditionally wooden sleepers were used but since wood was increasingly difficult and expensive to source in sufficient quantities concrete sleepers started to be used which were cheaper and easily obtained. In addition, concrete sleepers require less maintenance than wooden and have a longer service life. A concrete sleeper is of two types, pre-stressed monoblock, and twin block sleepers. Monoblock consists of a single concrete element which is available in various sizes over which both the rail lines are placed, and twin block consist of two blocks of reinforced concrete held by a steel crossbar to correct gauge over each block the rail lines are placed. 

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • Due to COVID-19, the government across all countries declared lockdown and other restrictions. The imposed lockdown on the rail industry had disrupted the work of building railroads and the demand for transportation via railway had also fallen. Moreover, due to social distancing norms and other restrictions led to the unavailability of labor for working at rail lines which further delayed the process. Thus, the demand and supply for railway sleepers are badly impacted. Furthermore, the raw material required for the manufacturing of railway sleepers was also unavailable which disrupted the whole operation. The railway is an evolving sector, but the pandemic harmed the railway sleepers market.

Top Impacting Factors 
Rise in usage in civic infrastructure & mining, increase in sleeper usage for decoration purpose, and low cost & high strength wielding capacity are expected to drive growth of the market.
However, rise in R&D for reduction in the usage of railway slippers on railway tracks and development of new types of trains which have different rail lines can hamper growth of the market.
Moreover, rise in government investment for railway development, increase in passenger & goods transportation via railway, and surge in development of metro/subway track act as an opportunity for growth of the market.
Market Trends
Sleeper usage for decoration purposes

  • Railway sleepers are used in the garden for decoration, it is also a great alternative to brick or stone to give the garden a rustic feel. Sleepers can also be used for building fireplaces, tables, and benches. Like the crack split, and imperfections add natural beauty to the furniture, sleepers can be used to build a driveway, garden walls, fences, and others. Thus, the use of railway sleepers for decoration is expected to drive the growth of the product market.
  • Usage in civic infrastructure & mining
  • The rise in underground mining has increased the demand for transportation of coals via wagons which run on railway lines. Thus, railway steel sleeper is used for coal mines since it is easy to install and maintain. Steel sleepers are formed from pressed steel and shaped into the section.
  • For instance, Tuffflex Plastics a Germistion company manufactures sleepers using the composite of polyethylene material which is rugged and durable for underground railway lines. Thus, the rise in mining activities is expected to drive the growth of railway sleeper market.
