The Integrated Train Control (ITC) Segment to Create the Highest Growth Opportunities

The ITC segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The ITC train control solution optimizes headway times and punctuality and leads to reliable track-to-train transmission, which is expected to drive the ITC segment in the train control solution market. These solutions are gaining popularity as they offer the benefits of both, positive train control and CBTC systems.

The Mobile Communication Gateway Segment to Create the Highest Growth Opportunities

The mobile communication gateway segment is projected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. This segment is witnessing demand from high-speed and advanced communication technologies, thereby leading manufacturers to focus on the development of advanced mobile communication gateway (MCG) with high bandwidth for TCMS. The demand for automation and fast connectivity is increasing in the railway industry, which in turn is estimated to drive the market for the mobile communication gateway during the forecast period. Furthermore, the mobile communication gateway market is expected to be driven by the growing demand for new communication technologies such as LTE-R and satellite.

The increasing penetration of TCMS will be beneficial for MCG manufacturers and suppliers. The MCG market growth can be attributed to the high installation rate of TCMS in developed regions as well as the increasing penetration in developing regions.
