The increasing number of projects such as light rail and metro in various regions are expected to drive the market for the railway wiring harness. Electrification of existing track length is expected to drive the market. Various governments plan to electrify existing railway networks. For instance, the Indian Railways completed the electrification of 40,000 km of which, 18,605 km was completed during the period from 2014 to 2020. A target has been set to complete the electrification of an additional 7,000 km by 2021. India plans to electrify all broad-gauge networks by 2023. Spain has proposed a 36% increase in suburban investments in its railway budget for 2021 presented in October 2020. All this is supporting the growth of railway wiring harness demand across various countries.
Traction System is estimated to hold the largest market share by the application during the forecast period
The traction system is estimated to account for the largest market share, in terms of value. The growth of the segment is driven by the consistently increasing rail-based intercity and intracity transportation. Increasing adoption of rolling stock and rising investments by governments for infrastructure development is expected to propel the growth of the rapid transit market, which would further support the demand for a wiring harness for traction systems. For instance, the Indian government has allocated a fund of USD 340.4 million for Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) projects in the Budget for 2020-21. Such investments in the expansion of rail infrastructure and the development of new projects are expected to boost the market growth.
To reduce emissions, governments are planning to convert existing diesel fleets to electric locomotives. The Indian Government plans to convert its diesel locomotives with lifeless than five/six years to electric locomotives. This is expected to provide an additional life of five to ten years with the use of 12000 HP, 9000 HP locos, wherein earlier 4500HP locos were used. These developments are expected to offer opportunities for the growth of the market in future. This is estimated to support the growth of railway wiring harness for traction system.
Wire segment is estimated to be the largest segment by component
The wire segment is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing market due to the increasing number of electronic systems in a train and the rising trend of driverless trains. Increasing urbanization, rising demand for increased connectivity, and the comfort, reliability, and safety offered by rail transport have led to the growth of wire component for rail transportation. Rolling stock plays a vital role in the infrastructure of a city or a country. There is a rising demand for convenient, eco-friendly, and safe modes of transportation from commuters and governments. For instance, in 2020, China announced investments of USD 14 billion for Intercity transportation and high-speed rail projects. In 2020, 24 European countries came together to boost international rail routes and provide international services for passengers who travel in a range of 300 km-800 km such as digital solutions for complex ticketing systems for multiple journeys. This is expected to boost the passenger transportation market in the coming years. Thus, with growing applications of wiring harnesses in railways, wiring with different lengths would witness significant demand.
