Global automatic train control (ATC) market size to grow at a CAGR of 10.3% during the forecast period
The global ATC market size is expected to grow from USD 2.2 billion in 2018 to USD 3.6 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.3% during the forecast period. Major growth factors for the market include high population growth and hyper-urbanization, technological advancements targeting passenger convenience, and emerging trend of smart cities. However, high cost of deployment and operational inefficiency could restrain the market growth.

GoA 4 to grow at the highest CAGR during forecast period
GoA 4 is also termed as an Unattended Train Operation (UTO) system. Therefore, the safe departure of the train from a station, including door closing, must be done automatically. The UTO system can detect and manage the hazardous conditions and emergency conditions by introducing guideway intrusion detection, platform and onboard CCTV, etc. UTO is only possible for systems with GoA 4; however, in practice, not all GoA 4 systems are operated unattended. Based on the observations of automated metros, most of the GoA 4 systems are operated with attendants onboard every train. Hence, GoA 4 systems can be operated either unattended or with an attendant onboard.

Asia Pacific (APAC) to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period
APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing region in the ATC market by region, due to the increase in the adoption of new technologies, higher investments for digital transformation, and increasing GDP in APAC countries. Singapore, China, Korea, Hong Kong, and India are rapidly investing in technological transformation. Additionally, with the rapid deployment of metros in Asian cities, the deployment of ATC solutions is on the rise. The high population growth rate in the region has intensified the need for transformation and expansion of the existing rail infrastructure. The presence of untapped potential markets, high penetration of advanced technologies, growing freight use in various industries, and economic developments and government regulations are expected to drive the ATC market growth.
