Dublin, Dec. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Railway Connectors Market by Application (Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs), Electric Multiple Units (EMUs), Light Rails/Trams, Subways/Metros, Passenger Coaches), Platform, Component, Connector Type, and Region - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

The railway connectors market size is expected to grow from USD 802 million in 2018 to USD 1,069 million by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.92% during the forecast period.

Leisure travel is becoming increasingly popular across the globe, thereby leading to a substantial increase in the demand for long-distance high-speed rail services as well as local rails for tourists using public transport. As such, efforts are being made across the globe to increase the comfort level of passengers traveling by trains and reduce the intercity travel time taken by them.

The signaling/infrastructure segment is expected to be the fastest-growing platform segment in the railway connectors market. In railway connectors market, signaling is one of the most important functions that provides ease in operations and increase safety for trains. A signaling system receives and analyzes the track data from different locations and base station radios along with the planned route. The data is converted to an electronic signal which warns the rail engineers about the movement authority limits, speed limits, and track conditions ahead.

The connector body is expected to be the largest connector type segment in the railway connectors market. The connector body is the most commonly used type of connector, from traditional industry-standard connectors to innovative new designs, because it has been the standard for a long time. The connector body is used widely in modular machine design, factory automation, robotics, transportation, and power generation.

The railway connectors market in the Middle East & Africa region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR market during the forecast period. The Middle East region possesses significant growth opportunities for railway transportation. The region's metro and monorail rail networks are expected to double in the coming years in terms of kilometers. Dubai, with increasing railway projects and government spending on upgrading railway infrastructure, is projected to drive the Middle East & Africa railway connectors market.

TE Connectivity (Switzerland), Amphenol Corporation (US), Molex Incorporated (US), ITT (US), Smith's Interconnect (US), Fischer Connectors (Switzerland), Schaltbau (Germany) are some of the leading players covered in the railway connectors market report.
