The railway management system is incorporated with different types of the manual and automatic systems that include various kinds of tools and services, which help in quick and better management of the rail industry. The various types of services and activities performed during the operation of the railway include scheduling the rail, managing the route traffic, power supply & infrastructure management, and station control. The railway management system includes all the possible aspects related to the rail journey from the train’s departure from the origin shed (parking) to its arrival at the destination shed. It primarily includes rail traffic management system, rail operation management system, rail asset management system, rail maintenance management system, and rail control system. Changing trends and developments in technology in the field of railways have reduced the operation times for resolving issues. Automated systems in the railways have decreased the rate of errors during the functioning/operation of the railway. Automatic track changing and automatic signal lights are among the major systems being adopted to reduce fatalities, delays, and accidents and improve the efficiency of trains. The railway management system offers improved and controlled operations, data analytics, energy management, asset management, and staff & passenger information management. Furthermore, the railway management system also offers disaster management, which is very vital for the protection of asset and human lives.
Increase in the number of commuters and the demand of the rails/trains is a major driver of the railway management system market. The Operations are coupled with all new information and communication technologies, which are expected to boast the railway management system market. Increasing safety standards and integration of automated systems to provide efficient, reliable, and safe service are key drivers of the railway management system market. Increasing freight traffic along with an un-optimized use of rail network along with inefficient management and operating cost are major restraints of the railway management system market.
