Railway Wiring Harness: Introduction

  • Railway wiring harness is a combination of wires or electric cables utilized in trains, motors/locomotive engines, and bogies for several end-use applications. The wiring harness is built with at least two electrical end-devices.
  • Increase in adoption of electronic systems in railways, such as high quality lights, screens, sound systems, HVAC, and internet (LAN) are major factors fueling the use of wiring harness in railways

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Railway Wiring Harness Market

  • Railway wiring harness is gathered and organized as one assembly and is designed to absorb shocks or vibrations
  • Railway wiring harness are used in trains where wear and tear takes place, owing to the presence of sharp or unpleasant surfaces or edges
  • Demand for continuous monitoring of trains has led to a majority of systems being electronically operated and integrated with the Internet for real-time data and information. Investments by OEMs to upgrade technologies is also a key factor fueling the adoption of railway wiring harness.
  • Countries, such as India, Japan, and China are developing new technologies for trains to reduce the duration of the journey and make them safer. The top speeds in trains is rising consistently, owing to rapid development in technology that enhance the speed of the trains. Demand for heavy equipment and systems in fast trains is driving the global railway wiring harness market due to rapid response and secure data transfer.
  • Regular maintenance and services of railway wiring harness are required in order to ensure its efficient operation. This, however, poses as a major restraint for the railway wiring harness market.
