According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global passenger information system market had a valuation of USD 6.12 billion in 2016 and is estimated to reach USD 21.39 billion by 2022 with a 23.17% CAGR from 2016 to 2022 (forecast period). The report describes and discusses the effect of the outbreak of COVID-19 on the global passenger information system market, including potential opportunities and challenges, drivers, and risks.
Passenger Information System is an automated system developed and deployed by public transport, including roadways, airways, and railways, to display information on the departure and arrival of a transport vehicle scheduled at a particular time interval. The advancement of technology in the transport sector drives the demand for passenger information systems available in various forms, such as LEDs, display boards, information announcement systems, or passenger information mobile application. In addition, growing public transport safety issues and increasing urbanization are also expected to fuel demand growth in the passenger information system in the coming years.
Security issues in public transport systems are increasingly growing. Effectively managing and controlling the crowd in public transport systems has become a significant paradigm for security authorities in every country. The purpose of the passenger information system is to prevent threatening situations in crowded areas. It is, therefore, essential to estimate the number of people crossing that area, depending on which counter plan could be determined when the limit is exceeded. Passenger information systems have a wide variety of potential applications, such as video surveillance and video analytics for rail, airports, and public transport buses. The government has regulations that define the maximum capacity of any vehicle, but to know if the regulation is being complied with, there is a need for a passenger information system to make it mandatory to prevent violation of the law. Apart from this, in any emergency incident such as hijackings, bomb threats, and assaults in any public transport, the passenger information system can easily and reliably identify the vehicle’s location in such emergencies. As a result, rising public transport safety issues are driving the passenger information system market.
Growing security issues in the public transport system and increasing urbanization combined with increasing public transit traffic are factors driving market development. However, high component costs and technological limitations are some of the factors that impede market growth during the 2016-2022 forecast period.
