Anticipated Impact of the Coronavirus Outbreak

The COVID-19 pandemic has induced sluggishness in the smart railways market, attributed to stalled construction projects as a result of nationwide lockdowns imposed to control the pandemic. These lockdowns have massively disrupted transportation and industrial activities. As a result, movement across regions has stopped, leading to reduced financial inflows and infrastructural investments.

The Indian and Chinese markets have taken a significant hit as a majority of upcoming smart railway projects are scheduled to take off in these emerging economies. With all efforts dedicated towards eradicating the pandemic, all projects have come to a grinding halt. However, as countries lift their respective lockdowns, their economies are gradually recovering, heightening growth prospects of smart railway projects.
