The rail industry plays a vital role in shaping the economic and financial position of a country. It carries billions of passengers and freights daily and generates huge revenues. Due to the ease and comfort in transportation, the dependence on railways for both passengers and goods is rising at a rapid pace.

Railways also help governments minimize the cost of transfer of passengers as well as goods, considering the huge carrying capacity it offers in a single run. The growing dependence on railways is increasing the pressure on the existing rail infrastructure. This leads to several uncalled and unscheduled maintenance for both rolling stock and infrastructure, owing to wear and tear of systems, breakdowns, damages, and repair needs.
“By deployment mode, on-premises segment to account for the largest market size during the forecast period”

“By application, rolling stock segment to hold the largest market size during the forecast period”
The rolling stock segment is expected to hold the largest market size. The railway is an asset-intensive industry, and rolling stock is one of the most important asset categories in the railway industry.

Rolling stocks usually have a long service life, hence keeping a vehicle in operation for such a long period of time can create various servicing challenges, such as securing parts, unplanned maintenance etc. Asset management solutions for rolling stocks can provide better control over asset performance, more efficient use of resources, and more effective risk management.
