Rapid Transition of Railway Systems towards Automation Fuelling Radar & LiDAR Technology Market Demand: Future Market Insights Study.

DUBAI, UAE, May 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The global Radar & LiDAR technology for railways application market is expected to grow at 9.6% CAGR between 2021 and 2031, projects ESOMAR-certified consulting firm Future Market Insights (FMI).

Radar & LiDAR technology is gaining traction in railway and transportation sector as a part of train protection and collision prevention system. Increasing demand for radar and LiDAR sensors in smart railway systems will inflate the market growth.

Recent developments in technology used to control train traffic, track train routing and scheduling, and detect on-track pedestrian will support the radar & LiDAR technology for railways application growth.

Increasing government investment towards designing autonomous railway system especially in emerging economies and surge in demand for radar sensors will emerge as market drivers. Some of the leading companies are launching advanced LiDAR systems to offer higher resolution and improved accuracy. These attributes are considered extremely critical for tracking railway speed.

Mobile LiDAR equipments are capable of high speed mapping of rail corridors with rate of 1.1 Mn per second. This equipment is installed on a vehicle or train locomotive. As the vehicle moves the LiDAR perfectly maps the tracks and surrounding area.

Incorporation of mobile LiDAR equipment in railways infrastructure project planning and development, along with construction, operations, maintenance, safety, and asset management will accelerate the market growth.

“Companies operating in the market are launching advanced solutions to improve rail collision prevention mechanism. Their efforts will elevate the market demand,” says the FMI analyst
