Market Analysis, New Technologies and Systems, Upcoming Projects and Opportunities

India has emerged as a fast growing market for urban rail systems. Currently, 10 cities have an operational urban rail network spanning 536 km. The network has grown significantly over the past 12-13 years, up from about 90 km in 2006. With the Metro Rail Policy 2017 in place, several cities are ready to roll out work to develop their respective urban transit systems. In the last five years, 13 new metro projects with a total length of about 248 km have been approved for implementation. Further, about 750 km of metro rail network and 373 km of rapid rail transit network is under planning in various cities. While metro will continue to be the dominant mode, new modes such as trams, rapid rail, light rail are also gaining traction. State-of-the-art rolling stock and advanced signalling and telecommunication systems are expected to be deployed as part of these projects. Innovations and developments in the fare payments industry are resulting in the adoption and use of a variety of payment methods, especially interoperable electronic payment methods such as smartcards, bank cards, mobile wallets and near-field communication (NFC)-enabled devices. The current level of activity in the urban rail sector spells significant opportunity for consultants, developers, contractors, operators, rolling stock manufacturers, signalling and communications technology providers, fare system providers, equipment manufacturers, construction material suppliers, software solution providers, etc.
