Global Automatic Brake Pad Inspection System Market 2018-2022
About Automatic Brake Pad Inspection System
Automatic brake pad inspection systems are used for the inspection of brake pads, brake shoes, and brake drums in railway locomotives. The automatic brake pad system is designed to inspect the brake pad of trains running at a normal track speed. The brake pad inspection system is mounted vertically on tracks. The automatic brake pad system consists of two modules, one for image acquisition and other for the analysis of images. The brake pad in trains is designed to wear out, as stopping the rail vehicle using brake pad creates enormous heat, owing to the friction during the dapping of the brake pad on wheels. The wear out of the brake pad must be monitored to prevent failure of the braking system and maximize the brake pad life. The automatic brake pad system not only prevents brake pad failure but also notifies the need for preventive maintenance and stock requirement.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automatic brake pad inspection system market to grow at a CAGR of 9.45% during the period 2018-2022.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automatic Brake Pad Inspection System Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automatic brake pad inspection system market: AARSLEFF (AARSLEFFRAIL), Alstom, Bombardier, MERMEC, Siemens, and Trimble.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: imc MeBsysteme, Australian Rail Technology, CIM (MECHAN), IEM, JLI Vision, KLD Labs, Lynx Engineering Consultants (Lynxrail), Rail Vision Europe, Resonate Group (DeltaRail), SBB, SELVISTIC (SelectraVision), Spectris (HBM), and Kistler.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is digitalization in railway sector. The global railway industry is moving toward the digitalization of railway systems. Developing a digital platform and integrating information from automatic inspection systems and other departments will provide a roadmap for transparency in the system. In addition: it will reduce the total cost for maintenance of railway systems and procurement of rolling stock. All the data from each department can be analyzed and efficient planning can be done. The digitalization of railway will help in reducing the congestion and railway traffic. Many countries are over utilizing their current railway networks, which is hampering their current efficiency and increased maintenance expenses.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is high accuracy in identification of defects. The efficiency of the railcar depends on the critical inspection and maintenance process of rolling stock, such as wheels, brake pads, and machinery. The inspection and maintenance of the rolling stock are crucial as they are directly linked to the reliability, mainline efficiency, and safety of railcars. The brake pad needs precise inspection as it wears out frequently, owing to high friction and heat generated during the clamping of brakes on wheelsets while braking the railcar. The inspection of brake pads helps the railway staff in performing service and maintenance tasks before the breaks wear off.
