Global Autonomous Train Market is projected to reach around 86,122 (Thousand) Units by 2027


The Global Autonomous Train Market is projected to reach around 86,122 (Thousand) Units by 2027 at a CAGR of around 4.38%.

Autonomous trains are operated without the presence of human interference and have complete control of movement between stations, departure, stops, opening and closing of doors, and others. They are also called as driverless trains. These trains are controlled automatically with the help of enhanced camera systems, highly powered sensors, GPS, and others are monitored with the help of a highly efficient computer system with machine learning (ML) capabilities. Automation technology on trains have proved to be more effective for a reduction in the number of accidents and pollution and an increased efficiency.


Market Driver:

  • Rising Demand for Safety, Security and High-Quality Service

Trains are the safest and efficient ways of transportation compared to roadways due to the number of accidents recorded. Autonomous trains are equipped with advanced technology which includes high tech sensors, advanced navigation systems, cameras, onboard computer systems, and others which assist in operating without the driver and the safety of onboard passengers is increased. With the help of train to server communication, these trains can measure the correct distance between the trains which results in taking less time for covering long distances.

Thus, rising demand for safety, security, and high-quality service is expected to drive the autonomous train market during the forecast period.

  • Increasing Government Funding for Railway Development

Rising government budget in railways are driving the demand to meet advanced technologies in trains. Developing countries such as India and China are more focused on developing railway infrastructure by allocating higher funding. For instance, Union Budget 2019–2020 allocated USD 9.6 billion budget for railways.

Thus, increasing government funding for railway development is expected to propel the autonomous train market during the forecast period.

Market Restraint:

  • High Initial Cost

Technologies used in autonomous trains are expensive and in addition to it, the operational and installation and maintenance cost increases the overall expenditure which acts as a restraint to the market growth. For instance, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) technology used in these trains is built in a variety of high-tech sensors which are costly.

Thus, the high initial cost is a restraining factor for autonomous train market growth during the forecast period.
