  • India has emerged as a fast growing market for urban rail-based transit systems. The urban rail network has increased significantly, up from 81 km in 2006 to over 680 km operational currently. The network has expanded from two cities in 2006 to about 13 cities as of March 2019.
  • The current pipeline of projects in the urban rail sector spells significant opportunity for stakeholders across the board. Over 25 cities in India will have operational metro rail networks in the coming years.
  • In a long-awaited move, the Metro Rail Policy, 2017 was launched to support the implementation of these upcoming metro rail projects. While the policy provides clear directives on tapping private investment in the sector, the high capital requirement and long gestation periods have rendered PPPs unviable. Another crucial aspect of the policy is the creation of unified metropolitan transport authorities (UMTAs). Kochi and Chennai are some of the cities that are attempting to create such an authority.

 

  • Meanwhile, the segment continues to witness the deployment of state-of-the-art rolling stock with an increased focus on indigenous content. Several manufacturing facilities have been set up in India for assembling coaches in-house. Alstom, for instance, has developed a 100 per cent indigenous metro fleet for Chennai, Lucknow and Kochi metros at its manufacturing facility at Sricity in Bengaluru.
  • Innovations and developments in the fare payments industry are resulting in the adoption and use of a variety of payment methods, especially interoperable electronic payment methods such as smartcards, bank cards, mobile wallets and near-field communication (NFC)-enabled devices. India’s first indigenous automatic fare collection system – the National Common Mobility Card – was launched in March 2019. Moreover, metro corporations have turned to ABT systems to improve the efficiency of metro ticketing.
  • While metro rail will continue to be the dominant mode of commuting, new modes such as rapid rail and light rail are also being explored. Emerging segments such as station branding, commercial development and real estate development will also provide significant opportunities in the years to come. New concepts and technologies such as mobility-as-a-service (MaaS), internet of trains, big data, predictive maintenance, and the use of renewable energy to power trains and stations are also being explored.
  • The mission of this conference is to highlight the key trends and developments in the urban rail-based transit segment, discuss the impact of and the gaps in recent policy initiatives, identify the key issues and concerns, showcase noteworthy projects and technologies, and examine new opportunities in the development, design and construction of urban rail projects as well as in the deployment of advanced rolling stock, signalling, telecommunications and fare systems. The conference will provide an excellent forum for all stakeholders including project developers, contractors, consultants and technology solution providers to share their experience and exchange ideas.
