“The regular seat segment was the largest segment of the train seat market”
The regular seat segment was the largest segment of the market, as a majority of seats in trains are regular seats. Regular seats require less space as compared to other seats; therefore, it is possible to accommodate a significant number of seats inside a single railcar. The lower cost of these seats, as compared to other seat types, make them a better option for rail manufacturers. The smart seat segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the various features associated with smart seats, which include installations, such as audio device, charging ports, and video display to make the journey of commuters more comfortable.

“Asia-Pacific is expected to lead the train seat market during the forecast period”
The Asia-Pacific train seat market comprises China, India, Japan, and South Korea. Asia-Pacific is expected to lead the global train seat market. This can be attributed to the fact that the number of passengers travelling everyday is the highest in Asia-Pacific. Therefore, the number of trains functional in this region is also high, which is expected to fuel the growth of the train seat market in Asia-Pacific.
